Kate Middleton x Sarah Burton

And the winner is... Sarah Burton! The successor to the great Alexander McQueen was the chosen designer for the royal wedding dress. Perfectly lacy, surprisingly not overdone (for a royal wedding) and paired with a gorgeously subtle veil, the gown looked stunning on an even more stunning Kate. "The dress itself features a lace applique of hand-cut flowers on the bodice and skirt made by the Royal School of Needlework. All fabrics used were made by British companies and included English lace and French Chantilly lace, ivory and white satin gazar with the underskirt made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace. The back of the custom McQueen gown was finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops. Kate also wore hand-made McQueen shoes made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. The Duchess of Cambridge's silk tulle veil was held in place by a Cartier tiara, lent to bride by the Queen." Congratulations to the lovely couple.
