The Alexander McQueen Royal Wedding Dress

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

Video of the Two Royal Wedding Kisses

Start watching frmiddlom 1:20 onwards. The two kisses are both quick, and look a lot the same. You could easily mistake them as being just one kiss, and a replay of it. But they are in fact two separate kisses.

Prince William stole a kiss from his new bride, Kate Middleton, and looked so shy doing it. I even think he blushed a little.

The Wedding Dress

Miss Catherine Middleton’s Wedding Dress has been designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing.  Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work.  Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress.

The dress epitomises timeless British craftsmanship by drawing together talented and skilled workmanship from across the United Kingdom.  The dress design pays tribute to the Arts and Crafts tradition, which advocated truth to materials and traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and often Romantic styles of decoration.  Ms Burton’s design draws on this heritage, additionally giving the cut and the intricate embellishment a distinctive, contemporary and feminine character.

Kakao’s tempting 50% off offer

Kakao is having an amazing 3-day 50% off special offer on selected chocolates, until Jan 20. The flavors range from Gers Ogaili, New Turtle, Old Fashioned Brownies, Mixed Chocos, Oreo Ogaili, to my personal favorites Raspberry Cheesecake & Oreo Clusters. All of these are 50% off, until Friday Jan 20.

Kakao is by far my most favorite chocolate place in Kuwait. Their chocolates are tasty, fresh, unique, and super delicious. They’re the kind of chocolates you serve at home, in hospital, or send to the office for someone important.

I always take a few kilos with me for my Saudi & Bahraini friends, whenever I’m visiting them. All of my friends love the chocolates, and the cute packaging it’s served in. And they never believe me when I tell them Kakao is a pure KUwaiti local business, owned by young Kuwaitis. The chocolates aren’t cheap, but they are really delicious. Plus Kakao always comes up with new flavors to serve, so for me the price is well justified.

Gers Ogaili bag of 15 pieces is now KD2, down from KD4. Chocolate Mix of 2 pieces of 18 different kinds is now KD5, down from KD10.

250 grams Oreo Clusters is KD 2, down from KD4. And 8 pieces Old Fashioned Brownies are now just KD1.5, down from KD3.

Since I always have Kakao chocolates in the house, I thought of sharing with you pictures of what’s left of my last order of Oreo Clusters & Raspberry Cheesecake chocolates (bought just 10 days ago).

You can reach Kakao on Tel # 97162323. You can also find them on their Facebook page.

Take advantage of the amazing prices, and order some today and tomorrow.
