"What amazes me is that there's acculturated people (since the article was well written) who has such interests, and free time to lose to devoted themselves for such totally irrelevant arguments."
Another posted on the site's Talk page: "The fact that this article even exists is an slight indicator of Wiki admins slacking."
But Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has approved the 'Wedding Dress Of Kate Middleton' page because of its long-term impact on fashion, according to Slate.com.
He added that the site should have more pages dedicated to other iconic dresses.

And some Wiki editors agree with Jimmy.
One wrote: "Are you suggesting this article should not exist? That it does not meet notability standards? That is absurd.
"This dress will be remembered for decades. It will influence wedding dress designs for [a] long, long time, not unlike the fact that brides wear white today because Queen Victoria wore white… almost 200 years ago.
"This is an interesting, well-written, and well-referenced article."
