Did you like Kate Middleton’s Wedding Gown?

So we all watched with bated breath to see exactly what the future Queen of England’s wedding gown looked like. Here are some pictures:

Kate Middleton’s much anticipated wedding gown dazzled everyone; a simple yet beautifully detailed and handcrafted Alexander McQueen gown. Although it was not an “over-the-top” design; it was likely very much in keeping in the style that Kate demanded. Some feel that the design combines tradition and modernity, and pays tribute to the Arts and Crafts tradition, which advocated truth to materials and traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and Romantic styles of decoration.

Kate’s dress is quite feminine, dainty and full of delicate details such as Hand-cut lace flowers of different kinds (roses, thistle, daffodils and shamrock) covered a combination of English and French Chantilly lace and ivory and white satin gazar with 58 organza-covered buttons in the back. It had a discreet v-neck, long lace sleeves and a train that measured nearly nine feet long. Middleton’s slender waistline was emphasized by the gown’s narrow bodice and slight padding at the hips—a nod to Victorian style. It reminded us very much of Grace Kelly’s gown when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco.

    Desirae Graham - I loved Kate’s dress but I do think that it is not the type of dress that every bride should or could pull off. It was perfectly tailored to her body and was so appropriate for a church wedding. It’s a classic, timeless style very similar to what Grace Kelly wore.ReplyCancel
