William and Kate and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

After weeks of speculation the Bride (yes, with a capital B) dress has been unveiled -in every sense.
Sarah Burton for McQueen!!! 
I'm ever so glad that Catherine, from now on, decided for a McQueen dress. That really says something about the update and chic touch that the new Duchess of Cambridge wants to give to roialty.
Even though at a first glance the dress seems very tame, too simple and sober in reallity, to a closer look, the McQueen craftsmanship, excellence and uniqueness are there.
The dress is made of English lace, French Chantilly lace, and ivory and white satin gazar lace and the handmade flowers appliques are real flowers: rose, daffodil, thistle and shamrock (simbols of the four UK countries: England,Wales, Scotlad and Northern Ireland).
Last but not least the hips were padded to give the Bride a curvier silhouette and also a smaller waist line. Clever, innit?

Below some McQueen creations that recall Catherine's wedding dress.
