Britain’s new princess (well sort of..)

…technically she’s a duchess

Ok so I did end up getting a little bit caught up with wedding fever this morning watching the service, but in the words of the immortal Holly Golightly, ‘it was all so wildly romantic’.

Kate Middleton looked absolutely stunning in her Alexander McQueen, Grace Kelly inspired wedding dress. Sarah Burton really did do an amazing job



The dress is a gorgeous long, lace sleeved and bodiced piece, and she looked every bit the perfect princess. What I love about it is that its so timeless. Unlike Princess Diana’s dress, which was very much of it’s day, Kate’s has a gorgeous vintage look that won’t date.

You can definitely see the parallels to Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding dress

A new icon is born?

    I haven't watched any courage, but she reminds me a lot of Grace Kelly today.

    As beautiful as her dress was, I think it's kind of a shame it looked so much like Grace Kelly's. I was hoping she would have a beautiful dress that was completely her own. She still looked lovely, though 🙂
