Did You Love Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen Dress?
The newest princess and Queen-to-be Kate Middleton wore a simple yet totally elegant gown designed by Alexander McQueen which reminded me INSTANTLY of Grace Kelly’s dress that she wore in her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier III. What do you think?
Kate’s Royal Wedding dress was certainly not as elaborate as Princess Grace’s wedding dress but even a Woman over 45 cannot deny the nod to the Grace’s elegance and simplicity. The dress was ivory silk tulle and featured the national flowers of Wales, Scotland, Ireland and England–this detail can be noted in the sleeves of the gown. Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Barton is credited with hand making the wedding dress for Prince William’s lovely bride.
Cartier, designed the tiara which Middleton wore, in 1936, it is refered to as the Cartier ‘Halo’ Tiara. With the flowers on the edge entirely hand embroidered, Kate’s lovely veil is also made from ivory silk tulle. I thought that the Bride’s sister, Pippa, was a charming accessory to Kate, also in a an ivory gowned designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Pippa dress was uber-simple. Pippa looked so much like Kate that is was like looking a mirror images of the same person in contrast–Coincidence? I think not!
Kate’s Train was reported to be 6 feet long. Princess Diana’s was 25 feet Long! Oh My!
Some people are comparing Kate’s dress to the Queen’ s wedding dress from 1947. I personally like Queen Elizabeth’s but then the Chief Blonde got married in a 1940’s dress as well!
Now you just KNEW that the Chief Blonde couldn’t let this day go by without slipping in a picture of herself! Right!
