Fairytale Royal Wedding
In the wake of the most viewed wedding all time, We must give a recap of the world’s newest Princess’s fashion choices for her big day. After weeks of titillating speculation, Kate Middleton emerged from the swanky Goring Hotel in a resplendent Sarah Burton creation for the British fashion house, Alexander Mcqueen.
Now styled the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate’s wedding gown has been hailed a perfect tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. The design, though unique in itself, also pays homage to another princess bride. The intricate lace appliqué bodice and sleeves of Catherine’s dress mirror those on the wedding gown of Grace Kelly, who became Princess Grace of Monaco when she married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, in 1956.
Both gowns featured a high-waisted, full-skirted silhouette with a long, dramatic train, and were worn with the sheerest of veils and diamond tiaras. A style very reminiscent of a 1950s ball gown. Her choice has evoked praise from top designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Hubert de Givenchy and Christian Lacroix among other stellar names in couture fashion.
