Why did this "level-headed" and "down-to-earth" royal bride decide to button herself into a bullet bra and bodice "narrowed at the waist" drawn "on the Victorian tradition of corsetry?" With padding on her hips, yet!? Did the soon-to-be most copied wedding dress in the world have to be constructed in the shape of a Barbie Doll--and not just Barbie, but the Barbie of the 1950s? I know (actually, I learn from royal wedding coverage) that the corset is a hallmark of "British brand Alexander McQueen" design, but I also know that at least one Alexander McQueen model has passed out on the runway as the result of over-enthusiastic corsetry.
If it was necessary to give the bride a fairy tale figure for the wedding, why not also give the groom a full head of fairy tale hair?
