Re: Yes, Meghan IS Influenced by Audrey Hepburn

[ Edited ]

phoenixbrd,

 

I remember it very well, and that is why I am a little nervous about linking Meghan and Carolyn Bessette.

 

Meghan's second dress -- other than the neckline, of course -- has the look of Ms. Bessette's wedding dress.  People were remarking about the unfitted look of both of M's dresses; she was probably seeking that same almost 1920-ish, drapey look of Ms. B's wedding dress.

 

Carolyn and John, Jr., were such a gorgeous couple, just as this couple is.  There will be envious eyes upon them.

 

I get nervous.   

 

(When I saw the historic church where John, Jr., and Carolyn Bessette wed in their search for privacy, I did not get a good feeling.  True.  I did not think of an untimely death, but I felt it was not a "lucky" place.  Don't ask me why I felt that, but I did.)

Yes, skuggles, I read what you wrote, and took your words at face value.

Re: Yes, Meghan IS Influenced by Audrey Hepburn

This is the photo I remember so well.  Something struck me odd, and I did not like the feeling that I got.  Something darkened my mood and made me fearful for this couple.

 

I did not feel that at Saturday's wedding.  My only concern has to do with envious, crazy people trying to harm them in some way.

@Tinkrbl44 If you did how did you ever ever come up with your defensive and uncalled for reply? Asking me if I was kidding and and the rest. My reply didn't deserve that.

cherry,

 

From your mouth to God's ears, as the saying goes.  This couple has a "lovability" quotient that is very high, too.  They are about good acts and regard for their fellow man.

 

Much to be envious of.

@golding76....all you have to do is lift the neckline on Carolyn's dress, add the required sleeves,  and viola!  If you are going to emulate someone....she is a goldmine.  Yes, what a gorgeous couple they were.

Re: Yes, Meghan IS Influenced by Audrey Hepburn

That's a stretch.  Nothing at in those Hepburn pictures looks like Meghan's gown. They couldn't be more different.  Others are saying similar things but it's only because there is nothing new about a boat necklines and sophisticated column dresses.  Her gown was lovely but it didn't break any new gown.  I saw a Julia Roberts commercial yesterday, it's for some cologne.  It's been playing for years and she's wearing a long white, fitted column gown.  Someone could say that dress influenced Meghan's gown.  It didn't, of course.
