Kate Middleton Beautiful Wedding Dress Is Sarah Burton
Kate Middleton's wedding gown created by Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton
Ms Middleton stepped out of the vintage Rolls Royce Phantom VI and into the pages of royal and fashion history.
Fabulous, fashionable and fairytale, the dress was fit for a queen-to-be and combined the style of a modern princess with that of a 20th Century princess, namely Grace Kelly, one of Diana, Princess of Wales's early champions. The dress featured a strapless, Victorian style corset, narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips - long a signature of the late Alexander McQueen's designs - underneath a high-necked, sculpted bodice in hand-made lace. The long, medieval-style sleeves and train on the softly pleated ivory and white satin gazar skirt, which was held by her maid of honour, her sister Philippa, enhanced Ms Middleton's regal bearing as she made her way, on the arm of her father, to the Abbey's Great West Door.
