Lady Kitty Spencer, 30, wore D&G for her Italian wedding to a 62-year-old


In early January 2020, Lady Kitty Spencer announced her engagement to South African millionaire Michael Lewis. He’s 62 years old and she’s 30. He’s also Jewish and upon their engagement, the Daily Mail remarked that no one knew if she would convert. He is five years older than her father, Charles, the Earl Spencer. Well, the pandemic happened and they had to delay their wedding, but they ended up getting married at some beautiful, ancient villa in Frascati, Italy over the weekend. The bride’s father was not in attendance, although last year it was said that Kitty’s mother (the Earl Spencer’s first wife) is fine with Lewis. Kitty’s siblings came to the wedding and her brother Viscount Althorp walked her down the aisle, alongside her half-brother. Kitty did not wear the famed Spencer Tiara (usually worn by Spencer women at their weddings).

All of Kitty’s wedding looks were Dolce & Gabbana. And by “all” I mean at least five wedding looks, maybe more. She seemingly changed her dress several times during the wedding weekend. She was already a brand ambassador for D&G, so I guess that’s why she asked the designers to make her trousseau. The actual wedding gown is supposed to look “Victorian” and the puffy shoulders are hideous. That being said, she’s a very beautiful bride. She doesn’t really look like her late aunt Diana. She looks more like her mother, Victoria Lockwood.

    Why didn’t her father attend?

    • Sofia says:

      According to Tatler, he’s got a shoulder injury so couldn’t make it.

      • Pao says:

        That must be some injury then

      • Amy Bee says:

        Hmm…I’d believe this if he had tweeted about the wedding. He’s yet to do that.

      • Jegede says:

        Charles Spencer has made ZERO reference to the wedding.🤔🤔🤔

        In fact on his SM pages in recent days, Althorpe appears to have been his priority all while his first born was getting married.

      • Sofia says:

        I’m not saying I believe it or whatever. I’m just stating what’s been reported.

      • Myjobistoprincess says:

        All the dresses are absolutely beautiful although I keep not understanding why celebrities keep choosing D&G. For Charles Spencer, It’s not even a good excuse not to be there. About his shoulder, he says something like “it’s quite a discomfort”. I think he just doesnt approve his daughter marrying a 62 year old dude, because that’s is… something. But if she needed to marry rich, she has achieved her goal. if he needed to marry a beautiful young women who was a newborn when he was 32, he also achieved his goal. Congrats to both and good luck to them.

      • Lizzie says:

        IDK, Charles absence along with not wearing the Spencer tiara says to me he did not approve of the wedding. Maybe he wasn’t invited?

      • BothSidesNow says:

        The only public comment he made was that his shoulder is in such bad shape, he will not be able to go diving to finish some documentation. That’s all got.

    • Enny says:

      Gasp, he’s a big ol’ antisemite? Who’da thunkit? 🙄

      • BothSidesNow says:

        We all knew he was a POS, especially considering how he treated Diana, but this latest revelation wouldn’t surprise anyone, if he truly is or he is making his non approval of the marriage public. Either way, he’s a POS. Always has been, always will be.

      • Amanda says:

        News outlets are reporting Kitty and her father became distant after his third marriage. I would not be surprised if Charles is anti-Semitic, given his background.

        At the same time, 62!! It just seems so regressive for a beautiful young woman to be married to a rich old man. It’s just such a tired patriarchal situation.

      • Vandenberg says:

        Maybe he just doesnt like the guy or the 32yr age difference…which is pretty gross.

    • Shoesnotblues says:

      According to the Fail they’ve not been on good terms since his latest marriage. Fwiw, it’s the Fail 😏.

  2. Moxylady says:

    Stunning. Love every look.

    • wow says:

      Even the wedding dress w the brazieree showing? I find that super odd. Everything else is so elegant, but the bustline is CRINGE. Why??

    • tealily says:

      I’m loving these color combos, especially the green with the pink. Very pretty.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think they are all really gorgeous. I even like the tall sleeves (I think the height adds length and makes her waist seem incredibly small).

  3. Snuffles says:

    Notice how no one is calling HER a gold digger.

    • Chic says:

      She’s not American and BIPOC. Notice the ease at which DG have been forgiven for their racist behavior in some sets too.

    • Laura says:

      and there are no pictures of the old man she married. the whole thing gives me the total creeps.

    • Astrid says:

      I thought we all assumed she is a gold digger. Why else would you marry somebody 30 years older then yourself and older than your father?

      • milliemollie says:

        True love!:D:D:D:D:D

      • Itteh Bitteh says:

        I mean, my SO is almost 20 years older than I am and I’d marry him if he asked. 🤷‍♀️ Last time I checked I had a job and paid all my own bills, so. That part doesn’t necessarily mean gold digger (though considering the rest, you’re probably not wrong).

      • questions says:

        For some reason, I thought it was assumed too. 20 years doesn’t seem as bad — the guy still seems kind of vital. But when it’s something like 30 years and she’s only 30 herself (and she’s quite pretty too), I assume most people wonder why the lady is wasting her youth on the guy.

        If she were 40 and he was 70, I think people wouldn’t question it as much. Although when I type this out and look at my words, even then I think the 40 years seems way youthful to the number 70. Maybe 50 vs. 80. Ok, still looks weird.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Snuffles: She’s white and an aristo.

    • GRUEY says:

      Ehhhhhhh I’m not not calling her that. I followed her for awhile on Insta after HM’s wedding. It was a tedious amount of bragging about a fabulous lifestyle and I had the impression she was shilling random crap but I could be mistaken. It was all much tackier than Rose, who I would unhesitatingly call a gold digger, but one with good taste.

      Anyway, I unfollowed.

      • A says:

        Rose Hanbury might be a social climbing gold digger who had a shotgun marriage to her wealthy, aristocratic husband (although, I’m *certainly* not insinuating anything there), but she has exquisite taste, and I do think her and her husband do have fun in each other’s company, if nothing else.

    • Mac says:

      She’s already rich, which makes it all the more puzzling.

      • Haylie says:

        I suspect many of these aristos aren’t that rich. At least, not rich enough to carry families full of extravagant spenders who generate little income. Plus, the son Louis gets everything really.

        Kitty has to secure her own bag.

      • Mel says:

        I think the majority of the money / family homes go to the boys because they inherit the titles. The girls have to marry to maintain the lifestyle.

      • February-Pisces says:

        Yeah the daughters don’t inherit the estate the eldest son will. Considering all their wealth is tied to the Althorp Estate and they aren’t cash rich, they won’t even get a cash equivalent to what the eldest son will get. The daughters have to marry rich to maintain their lifestyle. It kinda sucks. Earl Spencer wouldn’t even let Diana live there after her divorce, so it’s not even like he took care of his sisters.

      • Bettyrose says:

        I’m currently rewatching Downton Abbey and whether or not accurate to the time period the women so longed for options better than marrying for position. Weird how a woman with better options still does that. She may not have inherited much money but she likely had a top notch education combined with the social acceptability of doing whatever TF she wants in life, so I guess this is what she wanted.

        Gotta say though I love the gothy vibe of the top pic.

      • Miss Melissa says:

        I don’t think the estate is necessarily that well off. I suspect that is why Earl Spencer monetized Althorp as a shrine to Diana – ticket sales to help the estate.

        Base on stories about what happened between Diana’s parents and Charles and Victoria Spencer, the family remains pretty disfunctional.

    • Lizzie says:

      OH they were calling her gold digger and much worse on the daily fail yesterday. They were quite viscous yet little said about the husband marrying a woman younger than his daughters.

    • Soupie says:

      She’s looking really happy and they seem well suited. He’s not bad looking especially for a guy his age. I never ever looked at an older man until I was about 40-45, but now I find him attractive. Him being a fashion mogul is right up her alley since she is definitely model material. I remember her being impeccably dressed and looking beautiful at H&M’s wedding. I’ll bet her father is just jealous of all the money. He’s a prig anyway no matter what.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Huh, no tiara and her father wasn’t there? Was it a pandemic issue (couldn’t quarantine etc) or was he never going to attend?

    D&G is obviously problematic and I would never wear their clothes so I feel kind of guilty admitting that I think her dresses are all gorgeous.

    (they’re out of my price range anyway, but still.)

    • Savu says:

      Totally with you, Becks – the actual ceremony gown is my least favorite. But that blue! Gorgeous.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Agree. The dresses make her look like a fairy princess of the Flora Kingdom —not shade – I love them. The wedding gown though makes her look like an ancient dowager.

      • HoofRat says:

        Not a fan of the wedding gown – all I see are those boob pads.

      • ElleV says:

        cosigning Golly Gee – she’s serving ancient dowager corpse bride realness

      • Feeshalori says:

        With that last part of the video, I got season four the crown vibes where her aunt Diana was shrouded in her wedding gown standing in BP.

    • Sofia says:

      I’m guessing no tiara may be because the dress itself is quite busy and adding a tiara would have overdone it. Or maybe her father didn’t want to give her the tiara for whatever reason.

    • Eleonor says:

      All of the aristos are problematic to me, so it’s a good pairing.
      I love the desses too, and the jewllery!

    • UnionSnack says:

      Earl Spencer is the one who instead of supporting his sister (Diana) after divorce took away their family tiara which was really harsh for Di. Earl spencer is the one didn’t help his sister at all after her divorce and was making money on her name after her death. I think his dissappearance and Kitty without tiara and Kitty is with 62 y.o. man are links of the same chain. I am not sure earl spencer is the best brother, husband and father maybe that’s why Kitty prefers older man – looking for the loving father.

    • Maria says:

      I agree Becks – I hate D&G and how problematic they are and wouldn’t wear them but I do love their clothes.
      But I can’t afford them anyway, lol.

      I also love all her dresses.

  5. Jezz says:


  6. Sofia says:

    Take away the sleeves and I would absolutely love the dress. I don’t think it makes the dress itself look hideous but it definitely drags it down a bit. As for why she’s marrying a man twice her age, he’s apparently quite rich and she’s used to a certain lifestyle that’s going to need cold hard cash to fund and maintain. Since the family money is going to her brother, she, along with almost all the women in her social class, have 2 options: become rich yourself or marry into money/a titled heir – many go for the latter. I’m sure there’s love there but I’m sure many aristo women look at their potential partner’s bank account before committing. And it’s not like he’s getting nothing out of it – he’s now got a young hot blonde trophy wife on his arm. It’s worked out for both.

    Congrats to the couple

    • Calibration says:

      Exactly.. would she marry a 62 year old poor dude? I doubt it. Only because he’s rich. Whatever.

    • Jegede says:

      Pretty much.

      The truth is a lot of these title aristos have name only.
      They’re cash broke as hell. See the recent Henry Curzon & Hanna Jaff nuptials.

      Louis Spencer will inherit Althorpe estate, but even he’s going to need significant income to maintain that land.

      • GRUEY says:

        @jefede I just heard the tale of Hanna Jeff and that Cuzon dude on a podcast. It’s pretty funny. Isn’t he also somehow related to Fergie?? And he’s stone broke. Interesting…

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Jedege, thanks for that but about Jaff and her poor aristo husband, pretty rich coming from a man of British aristocratic lineage hoping to marry to clear his debts. That’s what a tremendous amount of titled Brits did at the turn of the 20th century. They held titles but had no money so they married wealthy American women to save their titles and their estates, which this bloke apparently was caught up in! This story is hilarious!

      • Becks1 says:

        LOL that’s funny bc I just read a book about Jennie Churchill (fictional) and now I’m reading one about Alva Vanderbilt vs Caroline Astor (again fictional) and of course Alva’s daughter will end up being sold for a title.

        Wasn’t there a name for them? The American women who married titles and injected money into these old families? Iron Heiresses or something?

      • Sofia says:

        @Becks1 I believe the term you’re thinking of is “Dollar Princesses”

    • Amanda says:

      Same. The sleeves ruin it.

      • AmelieOriginal says:

        That is literally the plot of Downtown Abbey. The Earl of Grantham married Cora, a rich American heiress for her money and to hold to his lands and ancestral home.

      • kat says:

        @becks1, they were called Bucaneers!

    • Oh-Dear says:

      Marriage for love is a very Western ideal (not exclusively of course). There are other legitimate reasons to marry, and I hope this is by choice for her. I hope they have a successful marriage by whatever standards they set.

      • Amanda says:

        That’s not really true… companionate marriages are relatively recent in the “western” world. (Charles/Mountbatten selecting Diana as a virginal brood mare, for example.) Also, Kitty is all about how in love she is if you look at her Insta — “Amore. Per Sempre.”

      • A says:

        “Marriage for love is a very Western ideal” It’s actually not. It’s the ideal of any human being who isn’t extremely invested in ensuring that the massive amounts of property they own remain within the ownership of an extremely selective and small group of people. In those instances, the primary motive for marriage is the unification & consolidation of property ownership, not love.

        For literally 98% of the rest of the world, love of any shade has been a consideration for marriage. Even in circumstances where people have often had very little choice in their life partner, or even their life in general, love has been a driving force and a motivator for relationships. The idea that it’s an “ideal”, let alone a “very Western ideal”, is pretty rooted in some rather prejudiced conceptions about the rest of the world.

  7. cassandra says:

    Honestly if the bodice of the wedding gown weren’t sheer I would love the dress. The blue floral gown and the green gown with the ivy necklace are super gorgeous.

    That being said, considering her upbringing I’m sure she’s going into this marriage with eyes wide open.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      Yes, for me, the sheer bodice was the deal killer. And yeah @sofia I think you have said all that needs to be said. There are no pictures of him because of the yick-nast factor of a father marrying a daughter look.

    • Kristen says:

      The high neck and the long full sleeves are pretty severe and conservative – without the sheer bodice it would look like she got the dress from a costume shop for period films. I like it.

    • Scal says:

      The green gown she swapped the top out to be white (it’s the same dress at the 3rd photo with the flower train from the back) Which is a shame because that dress in green was STUNNING. I don’t even like D&G and that color looked so rich and just popped. CHanging it to white was a bad call.

      • Becks1 says:

        I had to watch the video and see what you meant, and I agree. the green top was just gorgeous with that skirt. That was a good shade on her – she wore a similar shade to the sussex wedding that was one of my favorite guest looks from that wedding.

      • Sof says:

        I loved that shade of green on her, and honestly, you can tell everything was done by professionals, all the outfits fitted her perfectly. That’s how you spend money on bespoke pieces.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I love the gown with the green velvet bodice. Gorgeous,

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I do too!! I love all of her looks except her wedding gown. It has to do with the bodice, I think they should have kept the entire bodice in fabric and not sheer. Otherwise, it would have been fabulous! Too bad she didn’t choose the green gown, which was stunning!! I can’t believe I am loving these D&G looks, but I am.

      • cassandra says:

        I desperately want that Ivy necklace. I’m sure it costs more than a year’s worth of rent though

  8. Merricat says:

    I agree the puff shoulders are hideous.

  9. Jais says:

    Ugh Dolce and Gabbana. Sadly, I like the dresses, the flower ones more so. But a big FU to dolce.

    • lucy2 says:

      Same. Gross that people keeping wearing it, but I do have to admit, the light blue with the pink floral is one of the prettiest gowns I’ve seen in quite some time.

  10. Angel says:

    62 and 30 ??!! I know they are adults but this embarrassing for the both of them.

    • court says:

      I’m 39 and my boyfriend is 66. It’s a pretty normal relationship.

      • Lady D says:

        I’m sorry, but 25-30+ years difference between the bride and groom is not normal. There are 25 years between my sister and her husband. She is 55 this year, he turns 80 soon.
        I should mention they have been together for 30 years now.

      • Jezz says:

        Sorry, Court. It is absolutely NOT normal. It is bananas. You are two generations apart. It’s bananas

      • court says:

        @jezz I was previously married to someone nearly exactly my own age, and my current relationship isn’t as different as you’d think. On a day-to-day basis it’s as ordinary as any other. We have loads of things in common, plenty to talk about, compatible, and the best sex I’ve ever had.

    • GG says:

      There’s a vast difference between their relationship being “embarrassing” and a choice you wouldn’t make for yourself.

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    I love the dresses, all of them but yikes with the age gap – good luck to them.

    Also, it’s odd her father didn’t walk her down the aisle – IIRC after the divorce he never spent that much time with the kids as didn’t they move with their mother back to South Africa? Having a shoulder injury doesn’t stop you from attending your daughters wedding. But am glad her brothers were there and walked her down.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      Charles Spencer also moved to South Africa after the divorce to stay close to the children. But he may live in Britain now.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        It’s truly sad that her father had to make a public statement by his unhappiness with her choice of groom to not walk her down the aisle. If you have an issue, keep it to yourself. You can only support your children even if you don’t care for their partner/spouse.

        I know as I speak from experience. I don’t care for my DIL, but she doesn’t know that and neither does my son. I am very happy for them, he is grown and has made his choice. It’s her politics and the politics of her family that piss me off to no end, plus her lack of manners. She refuses to be vaccinated and I am certain she talked my son into not being vaccinated either. But I smile and I put forth a happy face for them. Because that’s what you do with your children. And she has a son from her previous marriage and I welcome him as my own grandchild and call him as such and he is treated the same as my other grandchildren. Plus, I adore him and spoil him rotten, just like the others!!

  12. Miranda says:

    Sweet Jesus, that off-the-shoulder floral ballgown. Ugh, I hate being a peasant.

  13. DS9 says:

    Looks like something they should have put on Adelaide Kane in Reign instead of all that Jessica McClintock

    • Courtney B says:

      I’m dying because that’s so true. Lol (says someone whose 1988 prom dress was JMcC)

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Haha, I had a JMcC for junior prom in ’83. It was def de rigueur at the time.

      • lucy2 says:

        OMG we used to all covet the Jessica McClintock gowns! They would take out multiple page ads in Seventeen magazine and there was always much debate over which one was the best. None of us actually wore one to our prom.

        I did see photos from my high school’s prom this year, and all of the gowns were really stunning! I don’t know where those girls shop, but the gowns were all very elegant and beautiful.

  14. DS9 says:

    But that blue is utterly divine.

  15. Veronica S. says:

    I assume she needs the money lol? It’s very interesting how these matches reveal where and how wealth changes hands and is maintained with these older family lines. Gorgeous dress, though, I’ll give her that. Victorian, yes, but I’d definitely do some Jane Eyre cosplay if I was marrying like an impoverished noblewoman to a duke. The white dress with the embroidered train is an unexpectedly elegant turn, too, so it’s my favorite of the bunch.

  16. Matthew says:

    Stefano and Domenico had to spend a lot of shady Euros for this wedding.

  17. Harper says:

    No Earl Spencer, no Spencer tiara, and no Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attending either. William does not seem close to his extended family at all.

    The bride is gorgeous. I don’t mind the sleeves on the gown as much as the see-through bra look.

    • UnionSnack says:

      Tbh I thought Wills would attend and Kate wouldn’t,

      • Keri says:

        I’m sure the bride is grateful Kate didn’t show up. Keen Karen would probably make her cry before the ceremony & wear off white.

      • lucy2 says:

        She would have loved the gown with the million buttons.

    • Chaine says:

      Why would any family member want those two at their wedding? Kate persistently makes everything all about her, and if Wills went alone he’d just stand there looking dour.

  18. MellyMel says:

    I love all the gowns EXCEPT for the actual ceremony gown, which should be the best one imo. Also, why are people still wearing D&G?

  19. jbyrdku says:

    She’s a beautiful girl, but that large of an age gap just grosses me out.

  20. Lizzie says:

    Sorry, Grace Kelly owns this look (wedding dress).

    Just as much of a side eye to him for marrying a woman younger than his children as for her marrying a man older than her dad. I (sadly) saw the story on the dm and most comments were vicious about her marrying an older rich man but few had criticism of an OLD man marrying a woman who wasn’t even born the first time he got married. Myself, they are two adults and I could care less about the age difference.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      That’s just absurd to me. No one woman can “own” the wedding dress look. There’s so many ways to be a beautiful bride! Secondly, as big as GK was in her day…she hasn’t been the standard in a long time. It’s been 70 years, there’s been many beautiful brides since then.

      • Harper says:

        Grace Kelly had a beautiful face but she wore a high neck lace dress with long sleeves and now everyone else steals from her forever? Wikipedia calls Grace’s dress one of the “best remembered” wedding gowns and I think that’s why Grace’s dress gets referenced so often. The dress is a simple design, with lace, and I didn’t care for the headpiece they put with it so the whole look has always been meh IMO. I wish we could get past the “homage to Grace Kelly” reflex when someone marries in a high-necked lace gown. Even Kate’s gown, which didn’t look anything like Grace’s, was called a homage to Grace Kelly despite her boob darts and low cut.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      This dress is just like Kate’s dress in that the only things it shares with Grace Kelly’s dress is the high-necked long-sleeved lace-covered bodice. Everything else about the look is completely different.

  21. Amy Bee says:

    Too much lace and the sleeves are terrible but she looked pretty.

  22. lorelei says:

    After caring for my ailing mother and my 91yo dementia suffering grandfather for the past year, all I can say about this type of relationship, if it involves normal people, is that the age gap might not seem much now, but in 10-15 years it’s gonna be a whole different story.
    Of course, she has the means and will probably hire an army of nurses and caregivers and it won’t cramp her life in anyway, but for those who can’t afford it, I’m sorry but run! I love my family immensely but the toll these type of situations take on the caregiver is tremendous.

    • Moneypenny says:

      This is always my first thought. Yeah, its fine now, but you are going to have to take care of an old person sooner than you may wish to.

  23. Jegede says:

    Zzzzz 🥱🥱
    I’m over all these socialite dresses being different variations of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress.
    Nicky Hilton, Marie Chantal, Kate Middleton et al.

    And why would a – ahem – ‘shoulder injury’, stop the Earl from attending his own daughter’s wedding?
    Not like he has to fly the plane, or can’t find someone to chauffeur him around Italy.

    I notice NONE of the Spencer siblings were there.
    Shame, Lady Sarah McCorquodale can get down and party!

    • Courtney B says:

      Ladies Sarah and Jane may not want to travel out of the country because of covid (don’t know the quarantine rules). But Earl Spencer’s absence? Shady.

  24. one of the Marys says:

    Does all the family money have to go to the son? And wow she apparently wasn’t appealing to any one in the aristo/wealthy set closer to her own age? Now that I’d like to know more about because she certainly has the look.

    • Courtney B says:

      No, Louis is only entitled to what’s entailed like the estate. But the upkeep is huge so unless you’re Duke of Westminster rich, you’re probably not making big inheritance settlements on the non-heir.

    • Lizzie says:

      Yes, but I read on other sites she has inherited quite a bit and has made a fortune herself. True? IDK.

    • Sofia says:

      Her last boyfriend was 50 so she’s into these older men. But like I said above, she’s used to a certain lifestyle and there probably aren’t many 30 year olds (other than the Duke of Westminster) who can afford it for her. She could have gone for a mid to late 30s hedge funder ala Pippa but again, she seems to have a type.

      So it might be a case of both she’s into older men and men her age can’t fund her lifestyle.

  25. Alexandria says:

    I mean…I’m not surprised by this pairing. Not many 30 year olds are millionaires and those who are millionaires are looking at the 18 year olds and still dating around. She looks good, aside from the dresses.

  26. Lonnie tinks says:

    I think that wedding dress is absolute perfection.

  27. Marie says:

    So he gets the connection to the royal family and she gets set up financially for the rest of her life. Very Victorian aristocrat of them – the ceremony dress is fitting.

  28. GRUEY says:

    Just looked at her insta and it’s pretty clear DG has been sponsoring her for awhile. Idk how she’s getting away with not labeling these sponsored posts but she’s modeling their crap in tons of posts.

  29. Jaded says:

    She seems to have a thing for older guys — she was girlfriend of property tycoon Niccolò Barattieri di San Pietro for a while, who’s 20 years older than her. He went on to date Elizabeth Hurley. Anyway, I googled Michael Lewis and he’s an attractive 62, looks in good shape, but still…there were lots of people at the wedding but none of her family. I’m sure they look down on him as some parvenu fashion mogul with no pedigree.

    • Sofia says:

      Kitty’s siblings were there as well as some cousins. I don’t think her parents, aunts or royal cousins are there though

  30. tamsin says:

    I read somewhere that her modelling career rocketed skyward after she was noticed at the Sussex wedding. I believe she said that herself in an interview.

    • Cee says:

      She looked absolutely stunning at the Sussex wedding.
      She also looked extremely beautiful at the Cambridge wedding, and she started modelling around that time. She lost a lot of weight too, and had some cosmetic surgery, but it looks very natural.

    • lucy2 says:

      I didn’t realize that was her, yes she was gorgeous at H&M’s wedding.

  31. anotherlily says:

    The daily mail feature on the dresses has several shots of guests leaving their hotel and one of them looks like Rose Hanbury. She is wearing a black slip-style dress with silver sandals and is escorted by a plumpish man. Wonder if William is there.

  32. Kate says:

    The dresses are gorgeous, googled them – they look like a lovely couple, congrats!

  33. Jessi says:

    I don’t know – I have a friend who, at 25 married a 45-year-old, and it certainly wasn’t for money. I do wonder, though, how things will be when she’s 55 and he’s 75, or she’s 65 and he’s 85. I’m not always sure people look at the whole picture. On the other hand, I’m 40 and not married, so what do I know?

    • iconoclast59 says:

      @Jessi, I’m with you. The age difference may not seem so bad to Kitty now, but when she reaches her sexual prime in the next 10 years, he’s gonna’ be OLD AF. I remember reading a story on a chat thread; the poster’s friend was going through that situation. The man had been very good to the woman, but while she still had sexual desire, she was no longer attracted to him — in fact, she was kind of grossed out. She was wracked with guilt for feeling this way. How does the saying go? Something like, marry for money, and you’ll pay for every cent.

    • Rose says:

      Oh with the kind of money these people have, the hone health and caretakers will do the heavy lifting.

  34. taris says:

    she’s pretty and she’s got star quality for sure … i’m surprised the tabloids haven’t pounced on her by now.
    i expected her to go bare shoulders with the dress … was not expecting the conservative look, but it’s lovely still.

    not trying to start drama but … it *is* pretty weird that her parents weren’t there (shoulder injury my ass).

    • Cee says:

      I’ve read she converted to Judaism thus her wedding dress covering her shoulders and collarbone.

  35. lunchcoma says:

    Other than the first dress, the clothes are lovely, but it’s weird as hell that she did a modeling photoshoot and doesn’t have more pictures with the groom.

    I’m sure this is all terribly healthy and not dysfunctional at all

  36. rainbowkitty says:

    I don’t have an over bearing father who has ever really cared about who I date. That being said, I think he would be pissed/grossed out if I were to marry someone 5 years older than him. I would like to think any parent would be.

  37. Case says:

    Uh, does she not already have enough money on her own? Why is she marrying someone older than her father???

  38. AnneSurely says:

    She may not really look like Diana, but she seems to be the only one in the entire family who inherited her sparkle. Dolce and Gabbana clothing is crappy quality on top of the racism and homophobia and she is one of the few people who don’t look trashy wearing it.

  39. Gubbinal says:

    It all sounds terribly like an Edith Wharton novel.

  40. Ann says:

    I read that she is in fact converting to Judaism for Michael. I assume she already did. My husband is Jewish, South African born (he moved here at 13) and even for those who aren’t particularly religious, it’s often important to them that their kids be raised Jewish and that their spouse adopt the religion. I converted but we are not very religious.

    I don’t like the dress but she’s lovely and has star quality. He is a nice-looking older man, but ask me again in ten years.

    • Duchess of hazard says:

      @Ann. Judaism is matrilineal in that being Jewish comes from the mother, so I can see why it would have been important for her to convert.

      • one of the Marys says:

        Hmmm does that mean he’s agreed to father children for her? Otherwise conversion not necessary 🤷‍♀️. I read a dating blurb long ago wherein the single (non Jewish) woman lamented all her Jewish ex boyfriends went on to marry the next Jewish girlfriend and she was just baffled. She chalked it up to her being a practise girlfriend and a practise commitment before they settled down with a nice Jewish girl. She never once mentioned the matrilineal angle, I think it totally went over her head

  41. L4Frimaire says:

    The wedding dress looks like something Catherine de Medici would wear. Not into the shoulders and looks a bit severe and harsh. If her dad really wanted to be there, he would have been but guess he didn’t want to see his daughter marry some guy who is older and richer than him. Was her mom there? Oh look, people have complicated family relationships but they don’t get villainized and raked over the coals by the press. They’ve been together for a while and seem happy, so good for them. It’s her first marriage, let’s be realistic. I love that blue dress and the one with the floral hem detail, but the whole wedding looks like a branding exercise and D&G are awful people.

  42. court says:

    why do we drag women for ‘daddy issues’ & not the men who caused the issues??

  43. Jess says:

    She is so pretty, but I’m getting massive Evil Stepmother from that dress and pose in the beginning? And that printed….Roman? architecture on the other dress is so tacky. Very D&G

  44. Ginger says:

    Oh look, it’s that vampire from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

  45. Sof says:

    I’m in the minority I see, but I really like the first dress, she was aiming for victorian and it was accomplished.
    Now, she changed at least five times? that sounds exhausting.

  46. tamsin says:

    My first impression of the wedding gown is that it looked a bit gothic. I think it’s the sleeves that contribute to that.

  47. MsIam says:

    I like everything except the wedding gown. Those sleeves, yikes! Maybe if they were a different softer material like chiffon. Right now they look spray starched into place.

  48. Kelsey says:

    Not a fan of the puffy sleeves for ME, but it works for her.

    I have a soft spot for Kitty Spencer because I’m here for her fashuns and her friendship with Emma Thynn. I’m not gonna comment on the age of her hubby because we all know what it is. Sis said lemme secure this AARP bag real quick…

    Her last few boyfriends before him were old as hail too tho. Maybe that’s her type….??? *ducks thrown tomato*

  49. J ferber says:

    Related question: does anyone know if her younger twin sisters are identical or fraternal? Just wondering.

  50. You Know Me says:

    She is gorgeous & so is the blue dress.

  51. Abby Benedict says:

    Wide, terrified eyes in the actual wedding dress. And rather blank eyes while being otherwise dressed.

    The blue dress is stunning beyond words even if it is D&G.

  52. Boo says:

    Her main dress gives me the creeps.
    She does look like Diana IMO.

  53. Fódhla says:

    Her dresses are truly beautiful. They look like a perfume ad.

    As to the more-than-one-generation age gap, her father has always been horrible to women. It’s called “daddy issues” for a reason.

  54. Delphine says:

    So the combo of the puff sleeves with the high neck elongates her top half. I think the tiara would have made it look more balanced and the lack of it and her father’s absence point to him being a petty jerk. In my mind they designed that dress to go with the tiara. As problematic as D&G are I guess by repping their brand she’s already shown she doesn’t really have an issue with them.

  55. Premadonna says:

    She really has great style. She clearly loves color and isnt afraid to play with color and wear ones that traditionally dont “match”. She looks great here (omg that necklace!!! [fanning myself] Pidgeon-blood rubies?? Pink sapphires??? I loooove jewelry porn [wiping drool] my current jewelry obsession is with color change gems, and ive added a couple color change sapphires and a great color change spinel to my collection. Maybe someday ill be able to afford a good quality alexandrite. If i can even find one. [Wistful sigh]) few women could pull off that wedding dress without looking like Victorian cosplay but she does it. Also i loved what she wore to Harry & Meghan’s wedding. I haven’t the faintest idea what shes like as a person, im soley commenting on her fashion sense.

  56. Jessica says:

    Her marriage appears to be a giant ad for D & G.

  57. The Recluse says:

    Apparently her previous boyfriend was also significantly older and….wait for it…RICH. She has a type all right. But that’s a hard way to make a living. And I guess he’s okay with her marrying him for the materialism he provides. They both are getting what they paid for.

    • Premadonna says:

      But doesnt she come from a ton of money? Im not being combative im really asking.

      • SnoodleDumpling says:

        The Spencers may have a fabulous estate but it takes a lot of cash to keep it presentable, add to that a roughly 40% inheritance tax every generation, and a society with a near pathological distaste for honest employment, and you have a recipe for families whose only assets are the fabulous family estate and an ability to make it seem as though they have cash to burn by mooching off of richer new money friends who like being seen as part of the aristo set.

        Oh, also, overwhelmingly English aristocratic families practice a ‘winner takes all’ system of inheritance, wherein the heir gets everything and everyone else has to either get a job or mooch off of somebody (mooching off of the heir is usually how they control their family, see: the Windsors). And Kitty Spencer’s father, Charles, threw an absolute FIT when his father left Diana SOME money in his will. Not a huge fraction, less than a tenth I think, but just ANY MONEY AT ALL. So Charles is not likely to leave anyone other than HIS heir anything, I think.

  58. CV says:

    Lady Kitty’s dress looks like the wedding dress in Ready or Not.
    I don’t want to spoil the movie, so someone check on her. Her new family were dangerous in the movie.

  59. India says:

    The Spencers are rich but not the kind of rich like Kitty’s groom. On another note, I’m amazed at how Kitty’s face has evolved over the last ten years from plastic surgery. She looks great but oh so different.

  60. Midge says:

    I give it 3 years.

  61. A says:

    I disagree with everyone here. I actually really like the wedding gown, sleeves and all. I think it’s going for a real Elizabethan painting sort of vibe/aesthetic, and it does achieve that quite successfully, which is great. It doesn’t hurt that she’s photographed really well in that shot too. D&G, all of their disgusting behaviour aside, are good at bringing the Old World theatrics to their fashion, and it’s pretty clear that this is what they intended to go for here, and they’ve done it really well. Kitty Spencer wears the gown really well too. At any rate, the attempt to ape off of a style of painting worked a lot better for her here than it did for the gown her mother wore to marry Earl Spencer. So good job all around.

    Everything else she wore is also breathtakingly gorgeous. It’s a crying shame that D&G being how they are successfully taints all of that though. But, as it is with the majority of these aristocrats, without accepting brand name sponsors for their wedding wear, how would they ever afford any of it to begin with?

    As for the age difference between the bride and the groom, I only got this to say: I think I know why Kitty Spencer is going for older men, and believe me when I say girl, you’re not going to avoid the things you think you can avoid by not dating/marrying men your own age. I’m just saying. And it’s not just the money she’s going for here. She’s set for life with her trust fund, her father for all things considered will make sure she’s well looked after until he kicks it, and she’ll likely occupy a position in society that will enable her to call upon the generosity of others as much as she needs it. The issue is that she’s got all that money, and she’s refusing to spend it on getting some real therapy/counseling. Sucks to suck, but there you have it.

    • Premadonna says:

      I agree i actually LOVE her wedding gown, im sure up close the lace detail is breathtaking, and it perfectly suits the venue she got married in (im going by the pic with her in the veil). She definitely likes bold fashion with a dash of quirk and has the confidence to pull it off. I will say im not in love with the super pale pink flowered gown. But the blue and pink gown? And that necklace?? 🤩🤩
      Not to mention, considering that she’s marrying someone older than her father and will be standing next to him during vows, i think her dress just makes for better optics, than if she wore something more revealing. Helps avoid the whole “mid life crisis guy marrying 30 year old arm candy” cliche.

  62. Melly says:

    The wedding dress is ugly
    But Kitty is pretty.
    On the age difference- get money I guess but couldn’t be me. I note no one is shading her in the press for her father not being there. I don’t blame her, Charles is a horrible man. I remember that thick and thin speech he gave at his wedding to her mother. But interesting to see the double standards at play for a white woman compared to what a certain someone went through for not having her crappy father in attendance.

  63. Likeyoucare says:

    I dont mind woman or man who wants to marry rich spouse. As long as both side know what they are doing.
    There are so much thing to protect especially money, they must have prenup to protect both side

  64. Katebush says:

    The blue dress is absolutely beautiful in motion I loved it.
    Not so sure about her main wedding dress the sleeves are pretty extreme Simone said it reminded them of an Elizabethan dress and I can see that. She can definitely carry it off she’s gorgeous!
