Hot or Not : Wedding Tiaras

Yes, the Royal Wedding just teed this one up for me . . . thanks, ye dapper Brits.


. . . Kate Middleton’s (slash the Duchess of Cambridge’s!) gorgeous 1936 Cartier tiara, lent to her by Queen Elizabeth. The Queen received it as an 18th birthday present, how fab is that?


. . . eschewing my earlier warning. Now that we’ll see trends pouring out of the UK and into mass retail for brides to consume with utter abandon, take heed and avoid the tiara . . . we advise against the fake-it-till-you-make-it adage here, girls. Your $32 Moissanite version ain’t. cutting. it.

    So, unless you happen to own a real diamond tiara (a list which is basically limited to…well, Kate) this is a no-go? Don’t get me wrong, I dont like the look myself, but it just seems silly to make it a question of wealth rather than taste…or are those the same? 😉

      Good question. 😉 My mama always says “some people only have taste in their mouths”, regardless of moolah!
