Over the past few days there were lots of things in the news to talk about over the water cooler in the kitchen at the executive suites Toronto where I have my Toronto office space. You would expect people to be talking about the fact that Bin Laden is dead, the election results or the flooding caused by the Mississippi river, but instead everyone was talking about replicas of Royal Wedding dress are already being created.

Just three days after Kate Middleton’s fairy-tale wedding to Prince William, replicas of her Alexander McQueen gown that was designed by Sarah Burton were already being showcased. It seems that one such designer Shala Moradi, who is the director of design for Faviana, a New York-based eveningwear company has had her team working around the clock to make a dress as close as possible as the original dress worn by Kate Middleton. Moradi claims that she has made some tweaks to the dress to make it more mass market friendly.

The other topic of conversation at my office space Toronto was the worst dressed lady at the Royal Wedding. It seems that it was a close battle between Prince William’s cousin, Princess Eugenie’s bright blue Vivienne Westwood dress with a Philip Treacy hat and Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Chelsy Davy’s seafoam green Alberta Ferretti dress with matching jacket, Jimmy Choo heels and Victoria Grant hat. Hands down the winner for worst dressed lady at the Royal Wedding was Chelsy Davy.
