Black lace, a shiny horse, and a parade of princesses

January 8, 2012

Black lace is on tap for royal damsels.

Twitter went wild when Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge sashayed up the red carpet today in a black lace Alice Temperley dress. As you’ll recall, Temperley was touted as a possible wedding gown designer for the Duchess.

The red carpet was for the British premiere of the new movie, War Horse, a benefit for The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.

Sultan, one of the equine film stars who played Joey, calmly made his way down the red carpet through the rain. Met by War Horse director Steven Spielberg, Sultan/Joey was all smiles and looked magnificent.

Which raises the question — whose chestnut hair was glossier on the red carpet? Kate’s or Sultan/Joey’s? Cast your vote in the comments, please. I’m on the fence.

It’s The Year of Black Lace in Princessland.

Princess Charlene of Monaco was lissome in lace too, when she wore Christian Dior to a recent charity dinner with Prince Albert in New York.

Although it’s not the best shot of her, Princess Caroline of Hanover wore black lace to the wedding reception for her brother Prince Albert and his bride, Charlene.

Is The Black Lace Princess look working for you? How do you compare it to The Red Lace Princess dresses?
