Kate Middleton is the kind of bride who makes you cry she looks so stunning in Alexander McQueen, designed by Sarah Burton. Her sister and Maid of Honor Philippa Middleton also wore McQueen.
With a fitted lace bodice, full skirt and lengthy, lengthy train (app. 6.5 feet), she looks classic, but still modern and just really, really lovely. It’s so Grace Kelly! With diamond drop earrings by Robinson Pelham which were a gift from her parents, and Cartier tiara on loan from the Queen (who received it as a gift from her parents on her 18th birthday!), she’s also accessorized just as she should be. There’s nothing to say but swoon it’s perfect.
For more info on the gown, Kate was said to have worked closely with Sarah Burton on the design of the handmade creation, which NBC explains in detail: “individual flowers have been hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered onto ivory silk tulle to create a unique and organic design, which incorporates the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock.”
It’s certainly a good week for the McQueen label, with the Met Gala in his honor happening Monday. Glamour and genius all around.
