In just two weeks and a day Kate Middleton will go outside in her wedding dress. And then she will probably change dresses at some point(s) in the day. And Prince William will be at her side like a lost, ignored puppy. Because today a jelly bean with splotches resembling the shadows on Kate Middleton's face is more famous than him! That, and more royal wedding news, below.
• A mango jelly bean that obviously, as you can see, has Kate's face on it was discovered in the U.K. by a man who bought a jar of the treats for his girlfriend. He says, "As Jessica opened the jar, I saw her immediately. She was literally lying there staring back at me." He plans to sell the royal incarnate on the Internet "to a collector." [Gawker]
• The Telegraph quoted Matthew Williamson as saying, "Kate isn’t a fashion bunny," and, "I don’t know why everyone in fashion is waiting to see what she wears. I’m, like, thinking: get over it." Williamson now says he was misquoted: "I was referring to the fact that I’d been asked about her three times previously in the same night so it was more that I was over the fact that I’d been asked repeatedly about her. I’m setting the record straight: I’m a big fan and I’m sure she’ll make an amazing choice [for her wedding dress]. I just feel for her at this time when everything’s at a fever pitch — the pressure must be quite daunting. I think she’s great for British fashion — she’s clearly going to become an ambassador for British fashion." That is distinctly more boring than his first quote. [Fashionista]
• InStyle just launched the most awesome time-killer: an online Polyvore-esque game thing where you can drag and drop dresses and shoes onto Kate so that it's like you're actually dressing her! And no matter what you pick, InStyle tells you "Wow!" and "Perfect!" and stuff. YAY! [InStyle]
• Allegedly because she's losing weight, Kate Middleton allegedly made her engagement ring smaller. [Windsor Knot/Today]
• British film critics think the corny-ass Lifetime movie about Kate and William's romance sucks. Clearly they bear no knowledge of Wifetime, and are unaware that this is the point of its programming. [Today]
