Royal Wedding Gown Page 1
We’ve been wondering for quite some time (or, you know, since April) just exactly how Sarah Burton kept her royal wedding dress duties a secret. We would want to tell everybody! Alas, the Alexander McQueen creative director has a bit more restraint than we do.
The royal wedding dress exhibit at Buckingham Palace is proving to be just as popular as expected. Over 354,000 people have visited since the dress went on display July 23rd! We guess most people don’t share the Queen’s belief that the whole thing is horrid and creepy?
Quality time with one’s grandmother in law is never exactly a walk in the park, but when your grandmother in law is the Queen of England, it’s a veritable Himalayan trek. The Duchess of Cambridge and Queen Elizabeth II took in a private tour of Buckingham Palace’s royal wedding exhibition this morning, and it turns out the latter wasn’t exactly enamored by the set up.
Just when you thought we were going to go a whole week without any Kate Middleton coverage, Buckingham Palace has opened its gates to an exhibit of Kate Middleton’s now iconic royal wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. And while it’s not like photos of the dress have been scarce, in this case, the beauty of the exhibit is in the details.
Hold on to your fascinators! The dress that launched a million tweets is finally going on public display, and in a few weeks, anyone who’s in London will be able to get an up-close-and-personal look at Princess Catherine’s gorgeous Alexander McQueen wedding duds.
We, like almost everyone else in the world, loved Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress. It was elegant and beautiful and timeless. And no, it was not copied from an off-the-rack Kleinfeld‘s gown purchased in Brooklyn in 1991.
Let’s face it — the Royal Wedding did actually do a lot for the world. Prince William and Duchess Catherine got some of the world’s richest people to donate to charities instead of giving them gifts, lots and lots of tourist money poured into London and the surrounding areas, and overnight, one of the world’s most celebrated fashion houses turned into a household name.
From everything we know about Kate Middleton to Kate Moss getting naked for Vogue, if you missed something last week, we’ve got you covered.
We knew Kate would wear two different dresses, and now the second one has been revealed! Just like her stunning bridal gown, Kate’s evening ensemble was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
Sarah Burton‘s name has been thrown around since the beginning of March, and everyone and their mother wanted Alexander McQueen‘s successor to design Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress. Though Burton denied the rumors, she remained the odds-on favorite until the very end. She blew her cover by checking into the Goring Hotel last night, and now she’s finally broken her royal wedding silence!
We chatted with plenty of fashionable folk at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Karl Lagerfeld‘s Magnum ice cream shorts, but none left us wanting more quite like Olivier Theyskens did. Let it be known: Theyskens knows who is designing Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress, and he almost spilled the beans.
We’ve reported on many a Kate Middleton wedding dress rumor, but could this be the one that turns out to be true? Huffington Post royal correspondent Yvonne Yorke sure thinks so. She claims Sophie Cranston of Libélula is designing Kate’s gown, and that she’s been waiting to spill the beans for four months.
This whole royal wedding dress thing is crazy. FULL-ON CRAZY. How has nobody spilled the beans yet? Are British people just really good at keeping secrets? Why do we care so much? WE CARE SO MUCH. So. So. Much.
Oscar de la Renta presented his spring 2012 bridal collection at his office in Manhattan yesterday. How long do you think you’ll be able to get through this post without reading a Kate Middleton joke?
Bridezilla she may not have been, but the late Princess Diana did have some pretty clever tricks up her lace sleeves when she got married to Prince Charles in 1981. It was revealed today that the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry had a backup dress — just in case something happened to the one she planned on wearing.
Choosing a wedding dress is a very personal thing — unless, of course, you’re about to marry the man who will one day be your country’s king. It’s been reported that Buckingham Palace reached out to several style influencers in Britain for expert advice on who should design Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress. And while no one knows for sure who the queen-to-be will wear when she walks down the aisle to marry Prince William in April, we do know that Alexander McQueen‘s name was thrown into the ring by British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman.
You guys, it’s March! That means that the royal wedding is going down next month — and the most recent rumors about what Kate Middleton will wear have made us more excited than we ever thought was possible. Two words: Alexander McQueen. (Also, flats!)
Princess Diana’s wedding dress dropped by the Today Show this morning as part of its continuous world tour, bringing with it several handlers, yards of red carpet, and its original designers David Emanuel and his wife Elizabeth. And while the dress is certainly a sight to behold, we were most interested to hear how the Emanuels managed to keep designing the thing a secret.
