Every girl (secretly) dreams of growing up and marrying a prince. Well yesterday - as those of you from the UK should definitely know, that dream became a reality for Kate (Catherine) Middleton. Having been on and off for a little over nine years, Prince William finally tied the knot with Kate at Westminster Abbey in London.
Thousands of people gathered around the root from the palace to Westminster Abbey to have a look at the royals, the celebrities but most of all to catch a glimpse of Kate in her Alexander McQueen wedding dress. The likes of Vogue, ELLE and all the other fashion gurus have been referring to her wedding dress as the best kept secret in fashion for the last decade. They praised Sarah Burton at the house of McQueen for her work, and could not have explained any more how gob smacked they were that they had managed to keep the beautiful gown as such a secret.
These pictures show Kate Middleton herself minutes before being announced wife to Prince William of Wales - and can you really say you've ever seen anything quite like it? Didn't think so.
Sarah Burton told The Telegraph:
"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."
I think it is most probably safe to say that high street wedding dress designers will be mimicking this design for years to come - and why not! We all deserve to look as beautiful as this on our wedding days.
