Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress

29 Apr

Two posts in one day – I know, it must be a special holiday – and that it is! For those in the UK at least, today is a special day of celebration and an opportunity to put the blackberry aside for a few hours – hurrah! 🙂

The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton has got me unexpectedly excited and I found the coverage by the BBC brought a tear to my eye – an emotional moment as commoner becomes princess. And just a little thought from all us girls…”it could have been me!” ha ha. I did actually apply to St Andrews University, but was rejected as I applied to defer (which apparently wasn’t allowed, so you can imagine how miffed I was to hear a year later that Wills got accepted to defer…not fair say I!), anyhow fate played it’s hand…no 50 carrat diamonds for me – sigh.

I digress! This post is of course about THE dress – Kate Middleton’s wedding gown. She chose Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, which I feel was a good choice, but I have to say I was a little disappointed by it. I thought the lace top was beautiful and made her arms and shoulders look gorgeous, but the lower half was somewhat dull and her hair, in my humble opinion, needed a bit more volume on top. Princesses always have volume on top!

She is a classic beauty, very natural, very elegant, so I do think the dress worked very well on her – it’s just I wanted a bit more bling!

My friend Claire tells me Kate did her own make up – say what? I’m liking this princess more and more 🙂 I thought her skin looked radiant and her smile was so genuinely overjoyed I couldn’t help but get all teary and girly everytime I saw her.

The dress behind the THE DRESS however, has to be Pippa Middleton’s – gorgeous!
Also by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen – it worked her curvey figure perfectly – in fact, she looked so good many papers are saying she stole the show and dubbing her “the other Middleton girl” (with reference I should imagine to the Boleyns…).

The silhouette of this dress is so crisp, so fresh, so peachy, I think this will be the one that makes it into the weddings of “commoners”to come!
