The Royal Wedding Dress – Your verdict on Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress by McQueen
The Royal Bride, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, looked resplendent in an Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sarah Burton.
We simply loved the delicate lace top half – simply beautiful, elegant and feminine. We were less keen on the slightly granny curtain pleating on the bottom half (although it appears that fashionistas across the World disagree). Kate Middleton’s (aka Mrs Wales) choice of classic, elegant design has seen her been dubbed the Grace Kelly of our age. A couple of dubious onlookers questioned the prepubescent pointedness of the Royal Bride’s boobies in the corset, but perhaps this was simply the HD cameras.
The tiara was an AWESOME choice – made by Cartier in 1936, the tiara was bought by the Queen’s Dad (you know, Colin Firth from the King’s speech), King George VI for the Queen Mother three weeks before he became King.
Kate’s hair – largely down – looked beautiful, simple and classic; as did the shoes, for the brief moments we got to spy them.
All in all lovely, lovely, lovely – so please that she didn’t go for an over the top extravaganza. Simple and elegant wins every time.
But my opinion does count – what did you all think?
