Who wore it better?
Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally engaged after eight years of dating. Wills proposed a month ago while the couple were on vacation in Kenya, and today, Clarence House officially announced their engagement. Prince William and Kate are set to wed this coming spring or summer, and the world should get a peek of the engagement ring tonight when the 28-year-old couple give their first public interview. But we're more interested in the dress, of course, and as there's no word yet on what Kate will wear down the aisle at Westminster Abbey (or whatever royal venue is chosen), we've gathered our top picks. Middleton clearly has an interest in fashion--she's worked as an accessories buyer for Brit chain Jigsaw and she was offered a job in PR with Tom Ford--but her style tends towards clean and simple. Will she go with Bruce Oldfield who designs for the Royals, or a younger Brit bridal line like Temperley? Will she stick with her go-to fave, Issa, or go edgier? Here's what we're hoping for. What would you like to see Kate wear?
Prince William and Kate Middleton's official engagement photos, shot by Mario Testino, have been released.
