Not how I would put it but he has a point about her dressing out of character - prudish - at the wedding.

Just because his wife looked like a pavement princess, he mocks about Kate. Kates dress was ridiculous on her, because she is not a prude. And the wannabe Grace vibe of course.  :tehe:

She HAD to wear sleeves because it was required to get married at Westminster Abbey. And with that design, you could totally tell she wished she could be strapless.

Why does he think wedding dresses look so horrible? Most men love seeing their bride walk down the aisle looking so lovely. At some weddings I even see tears in their eyes.

Maybe Howard would prefer brides to walk down the aisle in lingerie? Not nearly classy enough for a wedding; quite the opposite of class, in fact.

She should have been allowed to follow her natural inclination and go strapless. It would have fitted nicely in the desecrated surroundings and then shown her for what she really is.

It would certainly be fitting since after all, it's how she snagged William in the first place, no?

Stern.  He holds nothing back.  On this, tho, I disagree.  She wasn't 'ugly' but I'm with him that she had every amount of money available and failed.  That was one lame wedding.

I'm still haunted by the trees.  They were just so wrong.

It's something I'm going ot have to take a long time to recuperate from. It was just so wrong of those trees to be there. Fergie had greenery, but she never had TREES. As for carpet, there was never a red one.

I'll be dam#ed, KF, in all the watching of that Rocky horror show, I never noticed that there wasn't a red carpet, which is, of course, mandatory.  Dang you, KF!!!!!!!

The trees, however, when you watch and re-watch (as I have done waaaay too much) are stringy, scraggly and just SO WRONG!!!!!!!  They block people's view and do not make homeyness for which they hoped, or something.  It's like sticking a dead Christmas tree in your house on Easter.

"I think she looks a little fat in there. Look at the dress. It makes her look fat."

I have to disagree ... I think she didin't look fat and not ugly. Well, not stunning, but ugly neither!


Title: Re: Howard Stern: Kate Middleton looked 'ugly' at Royal Wedding
Post by: Yooper on August 31, 2011, 12:11:19 am
I totally agree.  No, she didn't look fat at all.  Stern just likes to shake it up.

She was no stunner, though.  You're right about that, too.  It was just meh; the whole stupid thing.

Her makeup was awful. I was expecting so much better. She looked young and fresh-faced arriving at the Goring the night before. And then at the wedding she had on 50 lbs. of makeup and looked much older.

Boy, I'd like to see that pic of her the night before, LG.  I haven't seen her look fresh-faced since I joined this circus.  Older pics, yeah, but not since last fall.

Well, maybe not "fresh-faced", but relatively speaking, for Kate, she did look much younger/better than normal.

Leogirl, I thought she looked lovely when she arrived at the Goring, fresh faced and quite pretty and her hair looked lovely too.  So I was rather disappointed to see her hard looking make up, orange tan, and flat dark dyed hair for the wedding day - plus she looked doped up during the ceremony, like she'd been given a sedative or something.

I'm still haunted by the trees.  They were just so wrong.

The trees made me wince, it seemed so what a girl with "no taste" thinking she has taste would do.

I don't think Kate looked pretty on her wedding day, she looked hard with glued down hair I didn't get why her hair looked so unprofessional, I also didn't understand why her makeup looked so hard. The dress was a bad imitation of Princess Grace's, I didn't like Kate's dress, but I loved Grace's dress. 

Most what I hated about the wedding was it lacked personality. The only time I felt something was when Pr.Harry turned around and looked back at her, but the rest of the time nothing. Even the kiss was Kate posing, imo.  :ick:

^There's no warmth in her eyes or her face. She just looks hard and triumphant. I guess Wills is making her pay for it now as she looks much worse for wear. As someone said, her wedding day was the first day of her "demise." To me that means that she'll have a harder life than she expected.

I like to think that was me; she peaked at her wedding, after a ten year campaign and from then on, downhill since she likely didn't realize that her work was just beginning.

Quote

Not when she was leaving and trying to find a single genuine smile of goodwill as she was leaving the Abbey. Look at the clip where she was leaving the Abbey and pay attention to the guests; many were cold and some even looked to the side (a traditional form of snubbing) as she walked past with William.

I think she looks scary

I agree; and in that first photo, her face looks heavily powdered. Perhaps she was given advice that the camera will make one's face look more oily than in person. That's why celebrities/models always have powdered faces, though it never looks that way. Professional makeup artists know what powder looks best and how much to use. Good powders these days are very finely milled and won't give that powdered effect at all - they just set your makeup.

But hers has been overdone and/or she's using the wrong type: she lacks the dewiness and glow that all brides should have. Her makeup looks very caked-on and old-fashioned. That can happen if one uses a sponge for compact powder also. The best, most natural application for powder is usually loose powder with a good brush. Personally, I don't use powder at all, since I'm older and like a dewy look, as it's more youthful. My skin is quite good, so I like to play that up, rather than conceal with powder. The effect is naturally luminous without sparkles, shimmer or glitter, which can highlight wrinkles or other flaws. Kate has a lot to learn about makeup technique.

Kate's heavy eyeliner is just hideous and highlights her bags.  :ick:

I agree with everything serenegrace has said.  :thumbsup:

The contrast between her 'triumphant' face before and her 'defeated' face afterward only convinces me more that this woman has been living in fairyland for way too long. She has no sense of reality whatever, IMO.

In that photo, she looked like she was about to start really letting loose and on the edge of a golden world; like she thought the world was about to become her oyster, like all the riches of the world were about to come down raining on her. Her skin looked smooth and glowing and she looked happy.

I also agree with everything Serene Grace said in post 20.

Howard Stern was being needlessly cruel by saying that she looked ugly, even though I also wasn’t impressed with her look on the day of the wedding. She’s not an ugly girl (in the face) at all. I wouldn’t say she’s a great beauty, but she’s kind of plain-pretty or common-pretty.

However, she did herself a huge disservice by coloring her hair to that dark, flat color that washed her out, pasting her hair back to her head with a gallon of hair spray, and wearing 50 pounds of makeup... like others have said.

Like many other posters, I also wonder why she seemed to pull a 180 from the way she looked the day before: gorgeous, actually. She looked so sweet and genuinely happy in those photos of her going into the Goring Hotel. There didn’t seem to be a hint of that cat-that-got-the-cream look that she is wont to wear. She just looked like she was just simply glowing inside and out. I think that’s what most people were hoping to see the day of the wedding. What we got was a wispy woman with no stage presence (even in her own wedding!) who looked, as Mooster suggested, sedated.

^ Good point. The one thing she wears that's supposed to have the most input from her is the thing that nobody else wants to wear. Style icon, my behind.

Everything else she wears is so common that it’s simply (and ONLY) a coincidence if someone else high-profile shows up with something similar. And as far as her designs selling out after she wears them- to whom are they selling out? Has anyone here actually seen someone out and about wearing an outfit like one of Kate’s? I haven’t. And if the designs are selling out to the public masses, then that means that the designs are common, nothing special, as they appeal to many.

To be fair, Howard didn't say Kate was ugly, he said she looked ugly at the wedding.  And I agree with him.  She made the classic mistake with make-up, where you use it to change how you look, rather than playing up your best features.  If Kate had done a light concealer, and then a blush to contour her cheekbones, and then a brownish gold eye liner, like this (http://www.google.com/imgres?q=eye+makeup+for+hazel+eyes&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&rlz=1R2TSNA_enUS379&biw=1366&bih=478&tbm=isch&tbnid=WQYnq2XSLK820M:&imgrefurl=http://www.buzzle.com/articles/hazel-eye-makeup-tips.html&docid=sn2KCcMG3GUmFM&imgurl=http://www.buzzle.com/img/articleImages/304857-5587-27.jpg&w=350&h=233&ei=diw4T5XyJMWiiQKJws2jCg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=940&vpy=177&dur=4228&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=168&ty=102&sig=117692656353703875754&page=1&tbnh=108&tbnw=154&start=0&ndsp=15&ved=1t:429,r:13,s:0) then her face would have looked a lot better.

As for her hair, maybe she could have tried this (http://www.google.com/imgres?q=wedding+hair&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&rlz=1R2TSNA_enUS379&biw=1366&bih=478&tbm=isch&tbnid=reMbY9IYcsgXUM:&imgrefurl=http://www.freelatestfashion.com/beauty-tips/new-bridal-hair-and-makeup-beauty-tips/attachment/new-bridal-hair-and-makeup-beauty-tips-1/&docid=SI8dRXt9nTmyjM&imgurl=http://freelatestfashion.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/new-bridal-hair-and-makeup-beauty-tips-1.jpg&w=1003&h=1539&ei=Ay04T9nSGorciQLRj5SzCg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=1024&vpy=47&dur=1358&hovh=278&hovw=181&tx=77&ty=136&sig=117692656353703875754&page=3&tbnh=136&tbnw=98&start=48&ndsp=28&ved=1t:429,r:7,s:48)

I think she didn't sparkle on her wedding day. She looked so hard and her makeup was like cement on her face. She reminded me of those women with bad skin who cake on makeup to hide signs of acne or old acne scars.
Her makeup was just a too plaqued on.

I thought the one thing Kate would have dazzled with was her hair and tiara placement. I truly thought since she was dreaming of this day for well before she even met Pr.William, that she would have had a hair style to "wow" and something that added softness...

I just think she was adequate, but makeup nor good, the hair I hated.  :bored:

She maybe should have watched Tudor's series, those women had some great styles for long hair and wonderful tiara placement.  :think:
Or she should have been practicing at home in Berkshire for years with different hairstyles.  :cookie:

She looked a lot like some of those goldigger weddings, where I've seen girls leaping from limos to marry the sugar-daddy or wealthy sports star. She looked so common to me and her family looked common too imo. She was like a reality show bride, with her tacky famiily along for the ride.

Can't, they are probably already down and beisdes, chopping ain't my style. Since I learned how to strike a match, I am partial to torching the forests, but I am not goign to bother. I watch clips on occasion for the same reason people watch clips of Britney Spears going psycho. I mean, I am watching the destruction of someone who was formerly on top of the world.

Why did Kate think a hundreds of years old abbey needed decoration? The beauty is the history of the building and the fact that it's intact as a historical momument to royal events and the life of the history of Britian......doesn't she get that?

The building did not need interior adornment of trees from Berkshire brought in.
The trees were temporary set ups , brought in and to be wheeled out, thank goodness.

The trees were so Middleton Party Pieces taste, even though they were real trees and lovely trees, it just seemed like what a socialclimbing girl "just allowed into the elite Country Club" would do......kind of tacky.

Part of my problem with the whole wedding was Kate was behaving like a girl finally given membership into an Orange County country club, not like a woman marrying into Royalty who will possibly become Queen Consort one day. :bored:

It was horrific; it's no wonder HM looked away from Kate as Kate curtsied to her, I wonder how Philip controlled himself. The place of so many dignified coronations and weddings and funerals, turned into a pageant setting for Kate's lack of appreciation for all of it.

Quote
Part of my problem with the whole wedding was Kate was behaving like a girl finally given membership into an Orange County country club,

I admire the observation; William looked like the idiot groom, Harry the sympathetic, pitying brother who felt osrry for the idiot groom, while the rest of the RF looked like the horrified family at who was marrying into their family. That wedding dress told the planet everything they needed to know about Kate's future behavior as a royal duchess. Her entire family looked like a family that was hitting the jackpot and also under the sincere belief (that has turned out to be a delusion) that they would storm the gates of every single aristocratic estate and have their pick, but thankfully it didn't happen. It still doesn't erase how smug they looked.

As for Howard Stern, he is right to criticize, but he needs to watch it because he does tend to cross lines. Kate looked not just ugly, but more along the lines of cheap.

Strangely, the wedding looks worse in hindsight.   

Take a look at some of Diana's after watching Madame Wastey's and Diana has a bride's glow, everyone looks happy.  Such a different feeling to the entire wedding. :hug:

Prince Andrew looked horrified in WK's, and P Charles didn't look happy. It came across as a cheap courtesy wedding, and not a union of love.  :thumbsdown:

You notice that HM smiles at Diana during the wedding but she snubs kate,not good just shows her how they feel.
Also at Diana's wedding people smiled and the woman curtseyed her and people bowed for Charles,so they approved.
look at the highlights of waitys and Diana's,just weird.

Another cringeworthy bit was the sight of the whole lot of them walking back down the aisle after the deed was done e.g. Kate's triumphant grin; Pippa clinging onto Harry's arm; Carole smirking with delight at Kate having finally nailed William down and the sight of Pippa about to launch herself at Harry.  Carole, visibly, did not relax until Kate walked down the aisle (not up it, when she was still visibly anxious that all her wildest dreams were not, as yet, legally true and something could still go wrong).

In this one HM is giving her a little grin, as if to say "we share a secret"

Kate curtsying to HM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65d2svAqFfA
HM looks like she is about to burst into tears and looks away to keep control. Notice how Harry did the same when Kate came up to the altar.

Howard is sometimes out of line, but he is right on this; something she was planning supposedly for a decade, she was remarkably slipshod and her wedding dress looked hastily thrown together, not at all something that was a carefully thought out design and I wonder just how often she went to the studio to work on her fashions.

That's quite incredible and thanks KF for posting. Chas and Diana's wedding was so happy with lots of chatting and smiling.

Take a look at Charles' and Camilla's faces after HM and PP. Charles does not smile at all and Camilla does but as soon as they have passed she looks very serious the smile does not linger. No-one but no-one is doing anything but standing there looking leaden.

Charles and Camilla aren't talking to Ma and Pa Midds either. Chas is nodding, winking etc at the many people he obviously knows but CM and MM just keep walking as they obviously don't know anyone.

There's a shot from above where Kate's chest (lack of) sticks out and it reminds me of Madonna's bra as you can see the pointy cups before the rest. I aways swear she's wearing someone else's teeth that day too as they look too white and fake.

And don't even get me started on those effing trees. What a ridiculous idea.

My nephew and brother thought the same thing, they both told me they think Kate's kinda ugly, when she got out of the car,they said why did Pr.William choose her? My nephew said Kate's not even pretty, she's very plain, my brother just think she's ugly. He said he didn't get the hoopla for her, he thought she was kinda ugly.

I find her very plain, nothing special to her. Thank god for hair, it does help her face , but on her wedding day she did not use it to her advantage. Her face is not much on it's own, imo.

At her wedding she looked haggard and tired maybe from all the years of pushing and trying to get there, at some parts she looked like she was about to pass out.

I think alot were surprised at her look on her big day. I know i was expecting to be wowed because she wanted this so much. I thought she would go all out. I thought it would be dramatic (like david emanual said..it should be dramatic because its a ROYAL WEDDING... if anyone knows, its him) ...and she just looked superficial.. or just blah. I know she is trying to stick with a down to earth theme whatever... but she wants big, flashy crap. Thats what she thinks shes signed up for. Im almost certain she wanted more on her wedding day.

Howard stern might be very crude and blunt but that is what makes him good. He puts out there what people only think (minus some of the sexual stuff.. that is his style). In kates case, it didnt look like she was marrying a prince. I think people like watching royal weddings because the pomp, pagentry spectical fascinates them to a degree. Its an unknown world. A fairytale. A big celebration and what we got were two very unappreciative, sploit brats who looked board senseless. Willaim looked pissed off while leaving the abbey and getting on the carriage. I will never forget the look on his face...

That is what I thought of her look too.. She looked worn out to me and it appeared as if she was trying to cover her haggard look with caked  on makeup.
The best thing Kate coud have done the week before her wedding was to get lots of sleep.

Sometimes too much make up can make you look twice your age and haggard than what it is meant to do... bring out your features, add a little more character and presentable. I work with a girl who wears the whole nine yards on her face. Draws her eye brows on, liquid eyeliner that isnt applied properly and way too much foundation....you can tell she is trying to appear as bascially... somene else. Shes insecure. She reminds me of kate.

It does; when you look at celebs who are apparently wearing gobs of makeup all the time, after a while it damages the skin because makeup as we all know clogs pores and dries skin. She's worn so much all the time, is it any wonder that she's a total wreck?

I take offense to your comments, Alley Cat AND Earl Grey.
 
Beth is a confident, attractive woman with her own sense of style, who didn't become a lemming and wear some boring piece of flat lace, and was proud of her body. Out here NYC, weddings are not always traditional.

bignono "Slutty"? No, no, honey. That is a Georgina Chapman aka Marchesa, darling. Research.
There's nothing "slutty" about  :worship: Marchesa :worship: .

Also, Beth & Howard had an NYC wedding, and theirs wasn't traditional.
They married, privately at Le Cirque in Manhattan, not @ a church. It was a wedding and party reception.
No one at the wedding wore ridiculous hats or big shoulder pads like those desperate attendees at the RW. *gag* :ick:

Why do people object to hearing the truth? If anyone ended up dressing like Kate did at her wedding, there would have been snickers and leering. But for some reason Kate is marrying William and in Westminster Abbey and go figure, is apparently allowed to get away with it?

Kate did look ugly at her wedding; despite all that makeup caked on, she looked washed out in some areas and she had a horrible haristyle that did not at all look regal and she wore a dress more suited to a burlesque version of a royal wedding. Anyone at an event of that magnitude should have worn something that looked regal, not at all half as tacky as she did. It was her job to look stately and royal, not like a Vogue model. Some blasted Diana's dress, but unlike Kate, Diana knew how important it was to look like a Princess of Wales, not like a tart who married her Johnny meal ticket. Her veil wasn't even attached and she really, really didn't try when she should have consulted someone.

As much as I dislike Kate's dress I hated Diana's more.  Diana's was just awful and had no redeeming features whereas Kate's looked like someone had at least cared about how it would look but still missed the chance to make her shine.

For all her faults Sarah Ferguson got it right on her wedding day in Westminster Abbey - just perfect for the occasion.

I loved how princessy Diana looked and how she looked like she BELONGED in St. Paul's cathedral, not like the noveau riche interloper with that dominatrix style bodice and admittedly elegant skirt. Kate dressed to attempt to look like she was haute couture, not as a ROYAL/REGAL bride and second, I agrree that Fergie did get it right.

Diana's dress was right for her - a very young woman dressing up as a real princess. Yards of taffeta, antique lace and sparkles; she looked magical. The dress is no longer fashionable and it swamped her a little because she lost so much weight, but I remember on that day we all thought she just looked so beautiful. She was radiant and seemed so happy.

Fergie's dress was perfect for her too - it accentuated the good things about her figure and was so intricately embroidered. Even today I would love to see that dress close up, it was a work of art. She was right when she said there would 'never be a dress to match it'. But then, like Diana she looked joyful and in love, something that Kate failed to achieve.

Kate looked smug and like she had been planning that day for quite some time in her fantasies. Her dress was unoriginal and I was deeply underwhelmed. Even having seen in in BP, the lace looked tacky. When you think of all the designers there are and all the stunning frocks there are, she chose to make some sort of high fashion statement that failed miserably.

I think Andrew just looks sad, whether he's thinking about how much further down the line he was now, or else thinking about his own wedding day when he was so happy and thinking about how that union ended.

It escapes me now how much WK's wedding dress cost, but it doesn't really matter I suppose.  For whatever reason, no matter how much she spends, she makes whatever she's wearing look 'off' or cheaply made and that wedding dress looked like Sears Roebuck without any tailoring at all.  It still confounds me.  The hair was wrong, the neckline was wrong, the flowers were wimpy, the veil wasn't properly placed, way too much warpaint on her face, oh, dang, I could go on and on and as anybody knows, don't get me started on those TREES!  Her one contribution I understand.

Howard may have been a bit harsh, but it's his way of saying what we're all saying.  I don't know anybody who really went ape for the dress.  Every so often, it comes up in wedding catalogues as the "Princess Dress" and Nordstrom's, for instance, has a version that they can't give away. 


Title: Re: Howard Stern: Kate Middleton looked 'ugly' at Royal Wedding
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 31, 2012, 04:39:32 am
Kate's neckline is what made much of it worse; bad enough that women choose to wear strapless all the time, but that neckline made so much of it worse, it really did. It was a slap in the face to a major historical occasion and she fell woefully short in measuring up to the moment. Royal weddings happen very, very rarely and Kate should have appreciated the moment rather than treating it like it deserved.

What made me snicker is how William was gaily waving from the convertible and Kate kept trying to be as stately as possible, while she was probably seething at not getting to ride off in a glass carriage and enjoy putting on airs.


Title: Re: Howard Stern: Kate Middleton looked 'ugly' at Royal Wedding
Post by: Sarahjane on September 16, 2012, 06:58:18 am
I actually thought the carriage they rode in was far too much for those two! I expected something a little more smaller and just...well....LESS.

I've mentioned it before but i will say it again...kate failed in the hair department. It looked unwashed and way to stringy/gell-stuffed for my liking. As i have said, it clashed with that dresses neckline. It all looked too much but i don't think she would have suited an up-do either. She doesn't have the neckliine for it to begin with. So i am still lost on how she could have worn her hair on the day.

I watched the wedding because, aside from Fredrick and Mary, wills and kates was the only other royal wedding i've watched. Maybe my expectations were too high. I just thought i would see more. I thought i would be knocked out when kate exited the car. I thought wills reaction upon seeing her would be more special than what he did. He was the last person in the world to see her in that dress. It was meant to be a MOMENT.

I looked at the video of Princess Grace's dress in the Daily Mail article remembering her death and Grace's dress was utterly magical, it moves you, imo ,it looked amazing, while Kate's dress just looked like cardboard, it looked like a hard, stiff bad copy of Grace's dress. I did not like Kate's dress at all, but even when a bride's dress is just ok,... the tiara, veil and hair can usually salvage the look, but even those were mediocre on Kate and her makeup was just BAD, too overdone, too baked on looking and when she still had those pockmarks showing through the makeup and her hair looked so dry, she just lost me. I didn't like much about the way Kate looked on her wedding day.

Agreed on all points, Cressida.  Akasha and I had the pleasure of seeing Fergie's dress at the exhibit on the Queen Mary and it was nothing like I thought it would be.  It was magnificent with more silver somethings embroidered all over it and so tiny!  It was really, really much lovelier than I saw on the television.

^Aaah, the Princess Grace dress.  It's like a cloud enveloping her.  That is so timeless and so special that nothing will ever really compare.  It all came together perfectly.  Thanks in great part to Grace's regal bearing and Ms. Rose, from MGM (Warner's?) who designed it.  Exquisite.

^So true.  One thing I noticed at the Diana exhibit is that the dresses they showed, barring one, weren't all that spectacular.  But, when you saw her IN them, it was a whole different story.  She brought them to life.  So perhaps it's the person wearing it that makes all the difference.

My jaw dropped when I saw WK's dress.  It was so Sears Roebuck (not that there's anything wrong with that) but it did look off the rack and cheap, cheap, cheap.  It was one of my major disappointments in life, of which I need to get one.  But, really, with all the hype, and all the $ involved, that was the best she could do?  And the tiara was a disaster, the hair was ridiculously non-ceremonial and her flowers looked like she picked them from the hotel flower pots on her way out and did not balance the dress at all.  Plus, she didn't look like a bride anyway, which is the astonishing part.  It looked like a costume and the ceremony a high school play.  What an injustice to the magnificence of that place.

It's amazing that there are dresses out there that cost thousands upon thousands of dollars that can look super cheap, and then there are dresses that are modestly priced and look like a million bucks.  But even if Kate had been in a better dress her hair and make up completely ruined the entire look for me.


I got my pictures professionally taken one year for Christmas, and they did the whole "airbrush" make up on me.  You can tell I'm wearing a lot of make up, even though in the pictures with the lighting it does look more natural.  Kate's face on her wedding day looked like mine did when I got those pictures taken.  And for all of the money she spends on skin treatments and products I still can't believe the pockmarks she has, especially on her forehead.  She could get dermabrasion for that.

I guess it's not the dress, but the lady who makes it that is the difference.  All that lip-licking and looking hither and fro was so out of place.  I didn't even like what PW and PH wore.  They looked visibly uncomfortable and KF's right, up there, if looks could kill.  The entire assemblage looked as though they were at a hanging, not a wedding.

I wonder if Smokey the Bear might be convinced to revise his stance on forest fires, just for this one exception. Just this once, PLEASE Smokey.

Now, in regards to the dress, it had potential, but the top was a complete opposite of what anything regal should be; the neckline was the biggest mistake, the lace was too delicate to match the firmer fabric of the skirt and the bodice looked like it was a corset, not a bodice.

As for her skin, she looked both washed out in some areas and also overdone in others and she was supposed to dress for the husband waiting for her, not the press.

The shoes were heels when they are supposed to be flats.
