The world witnessed the Wedding of the Century yesterday. And, the most talked about subject was the Wedding Dress of Kate Middleton or shall we call Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
She looked absolutely stunning! Her wedding dress was something every girl would dream of! As many did speculate, her beautiful dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen’s. The long and sheer veil, the hand embroidered sleeves, and about 6 feet long train – everything about the dress showcased a mix of tradition and modernity.
And, talking about her wedding dress, how can we not talk about the tiara. The tiara that Kate wore is the famous Cartier’s Halo Tiara of queen, borrowed for this special occasion. It was actually made in 1936, and Queen’s Father King George VI (remember The King’s Speech) gifted Queen’s Mother three weeks before he took over the throne. Gifted to the Queen on her 18th birthday.
Set with baguette cut old diamonds, and with its floral formations, the tiara looks absolutely gorgeous. The diamond earrings that Kate wore on this special day were gifted by her parents and were specially designed to complement the tiara.
Nothing to fall short of a Fairytale Wedding!
