I’m one of those people that becomes all patriotic for the day when something happens in the UK that makes you proud to be British. The Royal Wedding was a beautiful, happy occasion perfectly orchestrated by the family. We saw Prince William marry his sweetheart Kate Middleton, and all eyes were on the bride the whole time. The Duchess of Cambridge as Kate is now officially known, stepped out in a dress made by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. It was what I had hoped for it was what everyone else had hoped for, that she would chose a British designer to take her from commoner to royal. And the dress was absolutely stunning, delicate, and perfect for the new princess and very reminiscent of Princess Grace as so many people commented.
Just as exciting as the wedding itself and the arrival of the bride and groom and the extended family, was the arrival of the VIP guests most importantly the Beckhams. Almost royalty themselves (ha) Victoria and David arrived to their own fanfare (well I like to think they did), Victoria in her own custom dress from her AW ’11 line and David in Ralph Lauren Purple Label adorned with his OBE. As well as Tara Palmer-Tompkinson who looked lovley in all royal blue, and who escaped the radar Joss Stone, why was she there urgh.
Anyway we have plenty of days ahead of us to see the royal wedding pictures, videos, and articles what i’m looking forward to is her first magazine cover… If she does one I hope as What Serena Saw pointed out that she also sticks to a British designer for her outfit.
So the next thing to look forward to is Monday, the MET Ball and the late Alexander McQueen who is being honoured, with an exhibition called Savage Beauty’. The world’s fashion elite are invited and I expect to see some amazing gowns, maybe not as amazing as Kate’s wedding dress but certainly many stunning creations.
