Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge


As I hoped, prayed, and anticipated, Catherine Middleton wore a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress.

And it was breathtaking 

When they said (then) Kate was getting into her car, I immediately ran to my TV for a closer look. It wasn't the best view yet, butt from the brief glimpse I saw, I knew it was the kind of dress girls dream of.

It was then an even madder dash to the Internet, to see if it in fact was a McQueen, and it was. The statement released by the Royal website stated that Catherine chose McQueen "for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing," In addition, she worked closely with Sarah Burton to make sure here dress entailed "tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work." I was left in awe, as the dress had her own personal touch, but kept in line with his original aesthetic.  It was truly a great homage to the late great designer. 

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue:
In keeping with tradition, her Cartier tiara (on loan from the Queen for the day) dates back to 1936 and has been handed down through generations in the monarchy.

Her something new?  The beautiful, new earrings her parents gifted her, which contain the Middleton's new coat of arms.

And quite impossible to miss, we already know what her fabulous something blue is.

What I found most endearing about the bride, was that she did her own makeup. As if the nerves of the wedding ceremony isn't enough, add having your wedding televised, viewed by over 2 billion people and oh, to a member of the Royal family. Yet, none of that phased Catherine, as she wanted her makeup to reflect the girl who William knows, and fell in love with.
Fun fact: Included in her flower arrangement are a delicate flower called Sweet William's. How Cute!

For more about what Catherine wore, check out this post from The Cut, which includes details about the intricacy of the lace on her gown. Its truly fascinating.
