And now for the dress, a beautiful ivory satin with stunningly intricate lace applique featuring the four floral emblems of the UK: rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock. Even though it wasn't hip and chic much to the displeasure of the haute couturiers I thought it was perfect for a wedding of this magnitude. Kate chose Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, to design the gown. Stately and regal with a victorian style tight corset top paired with fuller skirt, it still had lovely clean lines.
It's been remarked that Kate's dress it very reminiscent of Grace Kelly's 1956 wedding gown. What a compliment, the late Princess Grace is still a style icon.
