Kate Middleton in de Gournay

Have you seen any of the coverage of Kate Middleton and Prince Williams' visit to CA?  Although I'm inclined to force feed the lovely duchess a steady diet of burgers, fries, and cupcakes to beef her up a bit, I am enjoying watching the pair make the North American rounds this month.

Last weekend, Kate chose this hand painted de Gournay silk Chinoiserie dress designed by Jenny Packham for a charity polo match in CA. 

Previously, I had only associated de Gournay with wallpaper.  The company specializes in stunning, handpainted wallpaper panels (reinterpreting 18th century Chinoiserie and 19th century French designs) that retail for upwards of $650 a piece!

What do you think?  Would you rather wear it, or wallpaper it?
