A McQueen fit for a Princess...

Everyone in the wedding industry & beyond has been waiting to see THE wedding gown for weeks! The dress chosen by the future queen of England will undoubtedly influence bridal fashion for years to come.

Now Princess Catherine, Kate Middleton stepped out into Westminster Abby in the early hours of the morning in a dress truly fit for a princess. Designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, she looked regal & traditional but with a beautifully modern silhouette & structure - the true picture of a princess.
Sarah Burton spoke with Women's Wear Daily today about the honor of dressing Princess Kate and this is what they had to say...
"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it. It was such an incredible honor to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day. The last few months have been very exciting and an incredible experience for my team and I as we have worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of the strictest secrecy."

I must say I'm thrilled with her style choice. It's very reminiscent of Grace Kelly on her wedding day, just as a I was wishing for earlier in the week. Remember this post from just 2 days ago?

And nothing could be more fitting for the future queen, than a McQueen design! Bravo to Princess Catherine on a fabulous choice that will influence brides around the world for years to come!
