Kate Middleton Channels Grace Kelly, Ivanka Trump
The stories of the “shocking, plunging neckline” are greatly exaggerated, but there was a good slice of V showing. Kate Middleton’s dress looked surprisingly like a cross between Grace Kelly (appropriate) and Ivanka Trump’s, and used a beautiful trend of the moment, lace. I love how the lace at the top tied in with the hand-made applique that followed the entire hem of the gown:
“When she alighted from the carriage, there was a gasp. The crowd was delighted in her choice of dress.”
As had been hinted at months earlier, the dress was designed by Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton in ultimately not a full McQueen style. A little curious, but lovely.
The earrings were a gift from her parents. The tiara on loan from the Queen.
The ceremony was described as starting off as a relaxed garden party.
