As you probably know by now; Kate Middleton’s royal wedding dress was designed by Sara Burton of the Alexander McQueen house. Several top designers have already praised the elegant dress:
“She is very elegant. The dress is classic and goes very well in the Westminster decor. It almost reminds me of (Queen) Elizabeth’s wedding, the royal weddings in the Fifties. The proportion of the train is good. The lace is very pretty. I like the veil a lot.” Karl Lagerfeld
“I like the dress very much, simpler than expected: a combination just in between 1956 Grace Kelly and 1947 Queen Elizabeth dress. I love the modest veil with the Queen Mother’s Thirties scroll tiara and balanced volume of the whole gown. She’s radiant; she never was so beautiful.” Christian Lacroix
“The veil is a little flat, but because she has such a lovely face, she can afford to wear it this way. She is very pretty.” Hubert de Givenchy
“Very much in a royal tradition, reminiscent of Queen Elizabeth’s – and a little bit Grace Kelly. She looks happy, radiant and natural.” Peter Copping of Nina Ricci.
“McQueen was a brilliant choice. The choice of the label and the style of the dress was a very clever mix between edgy fashion and tradition – all in a very British way. You could see references to Grace Kelly or Queen Elizabeth’s dresses, but in a simpler, more modern way. I loved her hair down. It looked perfectly natural and noble. Truly royal.” Antonio Marras of Kenzo
