In a very classic McQueen fashion, Sarah Burton designed the most gorgeous wedding dress for our dear Kate Middleton. The royal gown comprised ivory and white satin, English and French Chantilly lace, and a train that measured a staggering nine feet.
Sarah Burton said in a statement. “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." At only 36 years old, Sarah Burton became design director of Alexander McQueen after his recent passing in 2010.
Following in her sister's footsteps, Pippa, maid of honor, wore an ivory satin form fitted crepe dress designed by Sarah Burton as well. As unusual as it is for a bridesmaid to wear the same designer, I thought they complimented one another well.
I imagine this excited grin was a moment Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge will remember always and forever as the day she became royalty.
