Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Her Majesty's Wedding Dress

Congratulations are in order for the happy couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Since the day of the engagement, the world holds its breath for the dress everyone was dying to have a peek on. Only when she stepped out that faithful morning of 29 April 2011 that the world was introduced to the creation of Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and believe me, most sounds were the sound of relive and joy. The oohs and aahs started right from her emerging from Goring Hotel into the car. Beautiful in ivory and white satin lace and full skirt, she opted for the Cartier tiara loaned to her by Her Majesty the Queen and custom made shoes from the team. It is reported that she did her own make up and the hand bouquet has flowers for luck.

Her traditional and modern look was inspired by the dress worn by another Cinderella in her own story, Grace Kelly, during her wedding day to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.

Her bridesmaid also wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McqQueen. Cameron Diaz once wore the same outfit the Lady in Waiting, Pippa Middleton, wore to the wedding; when she attended the Golden Globes.

For the dinner celebrations, the bride donned another white satin gown creation paired with a mohair cropped cardigan, also by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Photo credit to Red Carpet Fashion Awards.
