The big day has finally arrived, and Kate looked every inch the royalty that she now is. Yesterday, Catherine and Prince William were officially married, a moment the world has been anticipating for months. And after months of speculation, the designer of the now-iconic wedding dress was revealed to be Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, a name that had been guessed quite a few times, with good reason.
The dress was everything a princess’ dress should be and more. It had a strong resemblance to the dress of Grace Kelly, but modern touches that made it appropriate for today and for Catherine. It had a lace bodice overlaying a sweetheart neckline. The lace went all the way up to the bride’s neck and had full sleeves, but there was also an appropriate plunge in the front. The cinched-in waist accentuated Kate’s figure, and the full skirt and long train were perfect for a princess.
The newly titled Duchess of Cambridge did her own makeup for her wedding and kept her beauty look simple with natural-looking hair and a radiant smile. Accessorized with a radiant tiara on loan from the Queen and earrings that were a wedding present from her parents, Kate struck the perfect balance between modest and modern.Tags: Alexander Mcqueen, Grace Kelly, Kate Middleton, Prince William, Royal Wedding, Sarah Burton, wedding dress
