FASHION SCRAMBLE: And the Princess Wore McQueen
-Finally! The Royal Wedding came, it saw and it conquered. Now we can all get on with our lives…but not yet because we still have to talk about this dress.
A lot of words sprung to mind when I saw Kate Middleton — now officially Princess Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — in Alexander McQueen: Stunning. Beautiful. Perfect. Breathtaking. Classic. Modern. Grace Kelly. And most importantly: Toldyaso.
Princess Kate wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, thus ending months of speculation as to her wedding dress and providing a wholly satisfying conclusion.
Featuring a 9-foot train, an ivory lace bodice, lace sleeves and satin skirts made with individual-cut flowers hand-worked onto ivory silk tulle, the gown was a fitting tribute to the late designer and a major moment for Burton, who may now be the front-runner for Dior.
What do you think of the new princess’s wedding dress? Loved it or LOVED it?
