Princess Bride

Princess Bride

All eyes will be on the next addition to Britain's royal family, writes Natasha Silva-Jelly.
So waity Katie is finally set to become Princess Catherine. In fashion circles, the royal engagement is cause for much celebration - and speculation - as observers scramble to discover 
who will do the dress and the hair and the best way to accessorise 
Diana's rock. Sydney experts have their say.

The dress 

Fashion designer Akira Isogawa also creates a stunning collection of wedding dresses, which has just been picked up by Browns in 
London. "In respect for the old school, I think the dress should be quite traditional and with sleeves for modesty, like in this shot from our printempsete 2011 collection."

The hair 

Sydney hairstylist to the stars Renya Xydis of the Valonz Group says Kate needs a 'do fit for a princess. "Kate is the new generation of royals so she needs to look current and fresh, not uptight. I if would leave her hair out, parted in the middle, add in hair extensions and give her a beautiful, bouncy, loosely tonged style that is ethereal looking, like a princess. This will also last all day and night, will balance out the proportions and is perfect for a crown." 

The ring

Lauren Chang Sommer is the managing director of Moi Moi Fine Jewellery, which has created a replica of Kate's stunning sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring. "The best thing about that ring is it's a timeless piece that's already gone through two generations 
and will continue to do so. A sapphire is also a colour that goes with most outfits and skin tones. She could accessorise with 
matching earrings or just go for big, classic solitaire studs."
