Did you watch the royal wedding last Friday night? It was one of the most beautiful weddings in history! Kate really looked like a princess in Alexander McQueen (designed by Sarah Burton). As Sarah Mower wrote on Vogue.com -
The dress - pure and yet conveying the grandeur of its importance - is an exquisitely modern example of a personal collaboration between a bride and her designer.
Catherine has followed her own taste a V-neck décolleté and a silhouette that stayed close to her torso, and long, delicate lace sleeves that evoked, perhaps, the wedding dress worn by Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.
Technically faultless in its scale and construction, the dress allowed the bride to move with ease, carrying all the weight of British history and expectation without the slightest wrinkle or hitch.
That such a feat of appropriateness should have been accomplished in intensely secret conditions—and continually denied by the designer—is in itself incredible in a world of Internet gossip, iPhone photos, and instant communication. More important, it was the symbolism of a partnership in which the individual wishes of a young woman have been expressed and enabled by another young woman of vast talent whose understanding of fashion's role in serving, and underlining, this historic moment is nonpareil.A truly modern fairy-tale. x.
|Will or Harry? Hehe.|
|Maid of Honour, Pippa Middleton looked stunning.|
|Sarah Burton must be so proud!|
|I wonder how fast their hearts were beating - including, Mr. Middleton's.|
|I wonder what the newly weds chatted about?|
|The moment the world waited for. Sigh.|
