Royal Style: All About Prince William's Engagement Photo Look
Mario Testino

Prince William and Kate Middleton are starting to tick the boxes on their wedding traditions. She wore something blue at the official engagement announcement Nov. 16. And he wore something borrowed in one of the official portraits released late Dec. 11. And in doing so, William has put another designer on the map: Brunello Cucinelli. William wore a fawn-colored cashmere sweater from the Italian designer–retailing for 500 pounds (about $780)–given to him to throw on over his Turnbull & Asser shirt by photographer Mario Testino and the team who attended the shoot. Known for making some of the finest cashmere and suede clothing in the high-end market, all of Cucinelli’s clothes are produced in Italy—in a hamlet he purchased and rebuilt close to the Umbrian town of Perugia. He was named this year as the Italian Entrepreneur of the Year and his 470 employees are so well looked-after (they are told they must leave work by 6 p.m.) that his company has been voted one of the best work places in Italy. He has boutiques around the world including New York, Bal Harbour, Fla., London and Beverly Hills. –Simon Perry

That’s nice to hear, glad Aretha Franklin is home from The Hospital, I hope everything works out for her and that she can go places as soon as possible,? and it’s nice to hear about the care she is getting!

It’s nice that Shannen Doherty still believes in Marriage and really does want to do that and have Kids, I hope that does happen to her?

I’m glad Usher wasn’t mad when a Fan of his kicked him in the face by accident, and it was nice how she apologized, but profusley, lol, etc.

The very fact that he’s wearing a $780 sweater speaks volumes about just how down to earth and servant-less this couple wants to be seen as. If he thinks nothing of spending that type of $$ on JUST a nice sweater, what would he be willing to pay for a good maid, nanny, hairdresser for her, car etc. etc. He could have had a gorgeous cashmire sweater that cost $200-250, maybe less! And the difference in the money could have gone to charity. I don’t mind the royals looking nice and having nice things, but there’s nice and then there is EXSESSIVELY NICE!!
