Ok so I just got home and I finally got a look on Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, and what can I say? It is the loveliest wedding dress I’ve ever seen this year. The dress was created by Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s Creative Director.
It was pure, simple, and elegant. It was the best combination of tradition and modernity, Kate showed a tasteful amount of skin in a V-neck décolleté and a silhouette that stayed close to her torso, and long, delicate lace sleeves. The gown was closely compared to the wedding dress worn by Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.
Technically faultless in its scale and construction, the dress allowed the Kate to move with ease, The train was dramatic but it wasn’t over the top and the veil was short and appropriate.
On her head, Kate wore a Cartier diamond studded tiara (lent by the Queen) which perfectly accentuated her lovely brunette her which she opted to wear down, lightly curled. She wore drop earrings which were a gift from her parents and believe it or not, Kate’s make-up is DIY, yes, the bride took lessons and she did her own make-up for her big day.
Kate’s dress became the immediate “it-haute couture” wedding dress for most of the ladies, and the wedding itself of course became the wedding of our dreams.
