The Royal Wedding. Did you watch it? Did you shed a tear when Prince William whispered to his bride that she looked beautiful? (ah my heart melted a bit). Did you secretly wish it was you standing there next to him and becoming the new Duchess of Cambridge? Or did you like me just stared at Catherine Middleton‘s stunningly beautiful dress as she said ‘I do’ to her new husband? How beautiful did she look.
Her dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen described the bride as looking “absolutely stunning.” The bridal dress is an ivory gown with lace applique floral detail, with the skirt resembling “an opening flower” and intricate lace detailed train. Burton said: “It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design, we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day. Catherine looked absolutely stunning today, and the team at Alexander McQueen are very proud of what we have created.”
The wedding dress that everyone’s been talking about wasn’t revealed until Catherine stepped out of the car sparked a lot of media attention and oooooh and ahhh’s the world over. Tweeters from all over shared their thoughts on the dress and how amazing Catherine looked. Coleen Rooney tweeted: “Kate looks beautiful breath of fresh air!!
