A Look Back at the Royal Affair

We weren’t sure which designer Kate would choose for the most important day of her life…We predicted McQueen by Sarah Burton- it just made sense. Not only is the fashion house known for it’s beautiful gowns but with it’s British heritage, it was a mtach made in heaven.

She chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing-Telegraph-

Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day…Sarah Burton

I think Kate looked lovely. Although it must be said that an updo would probably have suited the dress more and complimented her pretty features. I also think she should have opted to get a makeup artist rather than do her own makeup. Even though she went for the classic, natural, bridal look I recon she would have  had a fresher, crisp look had she used an artist instead.
