I think you can imagine how excited I got, when I saw Sarah Burton helping the bride into the car, realizing - YES, it is McQueen! That's all I was looking forward to... And they did a fantastic job, Kate looked breathtakingly beautiful! Even an absolute non-royalist as I am had to keep on watching a bit more...
Sarah Burton about the dress and the opportunity designing it:
"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 honour 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. Understandably, Catherine has been very keen to keep the details of her dress a secret, which is every bride's prerogative, and we gave an undertaking to keep our role confidential until the day of the wedding.
Catherine looked absolutely stunning today, and the team at Alexander McQueen are very proud of what we have created. The dress was just one component of a spectacular day, and I do not think it is appropriate to comment any further beyond saying that I personally am very grateful and honoured to have been given the opportunity to work on this project, and I wish TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge every good wish for the future."

Her sisters dress was also Alexander McQueen by the way, and together they did the perfect match! Just fantastic!

So what do we learn about that, ladies? THE summer trend 2011: lace fabriced and white dresses (well, it's not like we didn't know that before, but now it's defintily official)! So I will start raising my summer collection, just in case... and wish you a lovely, royal weekend in the meantime! Love, S.
