Kate's Wedding Dress

Buckingham Palace opened to the public for the summer today. Among the highlights is the Royal Wedding Dress worn by Kate Middleton when she married Prince William (title link). Yesterday, Kate and the Queen previewed the wedding display and Her Majesty was heard to comment on the way the dress had been displayed "It's horrid" (CLICK). Isn't it great when the smug curator hears the truth! It is the woman who wears the dress, not the dress the woman, and without Kate inside it, the dress is empty. It doesn't even have a mannequin inside it. The tiara is suspended above the empty dress, which is brilliantly lit in a dim space. The effect is spooky, like a headless ghost.
