Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen wedding gown is under close scrutiny after media reported that it bore a striking similarity to Isabella Orsini’s Garald Watelet-designed dress from her own wedding with Prince Edouard de Ligne of Belgium two years ago, The Telegraph reports.

Both gowns are V-necked, high-necked, and long-sleeved with full skirts and lace detail. “As soon as the Duchess of Cambridge went out to go to church, I thought her dress was a copy of mine. It means Kate Middleton has good taste,” Isabella is quoted as telling Italian magazine Novella 2000.

editor Miranda Eason reveals that both gowns actually emulate Grace Kelly’s wedding dress from 1956 when she married Prince Ranier III of Monaco. “The reason they are similar is they both referenced Grace Kelly’s iconic wedding dress,” she is quoted as saying on The Daily Mail. Like Kate and Isabella, Grace Kelly also wore a veil and tiara to go with her full-skirted gown with lace bodice.

    Isabella Orsini has a much more beautiful face. I defy anyone to say she doesn't.But kate does have a great figure.
