Fairytale Royal Wedding

April 30, 2011

Kate arrives at Westminster Abbey with her father to marry her Princ Charming, William.

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.

The 8-foot train on Kate's wedding gown was thoroughly appropriate for the magnitude of the occasion and the majestic expanse of Westminster Abbey.

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.

Princess Catherine, flanked by the Duchess Of Cornwall, Camilla, leave St. James Palace for her evening wedding reception at Buckingham Palace.

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.

For the evening reception, Kate emerged in another slightly predictable but no less stunning Alexander Mcqueen gown. The all-white, strapless satin gazar evening gown with a circle skirt and diamante embroidered detail around the waist was coupled an elegant cashmere shrug. The Duchess’s simple and effortless style brings out an innate charm and grace that will most likely endear her to hoards people across the Commonwealth.
