It’s on the basis of the political implications only that I run this now at OoL.
A lady friend commented on Sparkle’s dress:
I have to say that,although it could have been more form-fitting,(and the neckline called out for a show-stopper necklace)I thought the dress gorgeous,the veil gorgeous and the bride equally so.One piece of royal jewellery (which she may have been expecting) would have transformed that dress. Shame she wasn’t loaned one.(Did not like the bandeau at all).
So, only qualified approval, no? LOL. I was more scathing and longwinded:
The dress didn’t fit her, it was in folds. She was walking around in a duvet.
Kate’s on the other hand [at her wedding] was delicate and feminine. Remember that word? Feminine? She’s not particularly feminine in general with that jolly hockey sticks manner and harsh body but the dress eased that somewhat and Pippa was all curves and bottom – now she had style.
There was a comparative pic made of the other bridal dresses [sent by fos]:
… and what came through was what the women inside them were like, how they carried the dresses. You could instantly see the women who were comfortable in their sensual femininity … and then Meghan standing classlessly like a demi-man.
There was a similar stark comparison in the rebooted Bond movie years ago where Naomi Harris [in the promo] stood beside Berenice Marlohe:
Interesting that Metro called Harris “hot” because she showed more flesh but she lacked all grace, having been living like an entitled, grotesque demi-man all her life. If you look at her, she just stands there with zero style, front-on like a man.
Berenice M though exuded curves and wiles, stood, sat and moved like a woman, even though the basic material is not particularly alluring in her case. Look how little flesh she’s showing and yet she has panache.
Anglosphere women are too horrified to act feminine today, they’ve grown up entitled, with scrambled brains, it’s almost tantamount to a loss of power to be feminine, so they playact at it in a movie or at a wedding and it is with varying degrees of grotesque. You did see the Americans making fun of Pippa’s tea advertisement dress – at least Pippa was slightly more feminine than usual and not just because of the baby bump.
Meghan Markle has that demi-manliness in shovel-loads but you could see she’d made an attempt this time at femininity in a paint-by-numbers way but when I saw that it was not just a female designer who’d designed the dress – Clare someone or other – but also a British designer, not Givenchy nor any of the real couturiers, then it was clear what had happened and the heart sank. Hell, I could have done a better job – at least I know where women’s protruberances are and how they move.
The difficulty is getting “women” in the Anglosphere to see this – that modern feminism has killed femininity which, after all, is a woman’s main asset.
They’ll never admit it because, in a boiling frog way, they’ve never known it and instead will bellyache on about how they can STEM as well as any man, keep up with any man on the front line of battle – but none of that addresses the sad fact that they have the shape God gave them and then gone right ahead and spoilt it, trying to be men and only coming across as a grotesque parody of men.
It’s not beautiful.
