Kate Middleton’s Wedding Gown by Sarah Burton
I’ve been hooked up with the royal wedding of William and Kate for nearly 6 hours now. The crowd is now walking/running all the way to Buckingham palace to witness the balcony kiss.
I’m a lover of weddings and I [do] believe in fairytales. And yes, I’m one of those women who drool over wedding dresses.
Kate Middleton’s wedding gown was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander Mcqueen. The Grace Kelly-inspired wedding dress has a train of about 6 feet of ivory silk and the bodice was covered in french lace. It wasn’t as fashion-forward as I’ve expected but I think she did a great job making herself look like a modern day princess who’s worthy of honor and respect.
She also wears a “halo” tiara which was made by Cartier in 1936. The Queen lent it to her. The vintage tiara was given by King George VI to the Queen Mother who later gave it to the Queen as a gift on her 18th birthday. Her drop earrings are by Robinson Pelham, and her shoes are by Mcqueen.

I enjoyed the parade of stylish headpieces that the guests wore at the royal wedding. Check out their hats here: www.people.com
The royal couple: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Earl and Countess of Strathearn, Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus (the latter 2 are their Scottish titles)
I took pictures while watching CNN
Another wonderful couple sighted – the Beckhams!
