Did you wake up at the crack of dawn to watch the Royal Wedding?
I intended to, but did not. Did I want to see the dress? You better believe it. Did I lose sleep over the much anticipated celebration and revelation of the designer? No, I did not.
But I have to admit. The dress was stunning. In April of 1956, Grace Kelly donned a spectacular silk and lace gown when she wed Prince Rainier III of Monaco; Kate Middleton's lovely wedding dress was reminiscent of Kelly's classic design.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore an ivory silk and lace, long-sleeved, V-neck gown and accessorized with a silk tulle veil trimmed with hand-embroidered flowers.
The dress - and the wedding ceremony - met and exceeded the expectations of many. While I did not watch, I was informed by a friend who got up to join friends at Maya del Sol at 4:30 in the morning that it was deeply impressive and a merry time was had by all.
All I have to say is this: Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen was the perfect choice for an arresting and elegant gown that is both classic and timeless in design.
