Even with an 8 am final this morning, I couldn't resist the urge to get up a few hours earlier to watch the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Yes, the ceremony was beautiful and William and Catherine make a perfect match, but like many others who watched the wedding today, what I was really waiting for was the dress. And Catherine did not disappoint: her dress, the best-kept secret of the royal wedding, meshes tradition with modernity and was designed by none other than Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton. I've heard a lot about Ms. Burton on the fashion radar since she showed her debut collection for McQueen last fall and her creations have been worn during awards season by celebrities such as Mila Kunis. But this perfect collaboration between the bride and designer is what will have fashionistas everywhere talking, and if they're anything like me, they're probably wishing they will look even half as fabulous as Catherine does when they get married. I know a lot of people have been saying this already but I definitely see a lot of Grace Kelly in Catherine's wedding look, a refreshing take since Diana's over-the-top wedding gown nearly thirty years ago. I'm sure Catherine's dress will go down in fashion history as one of the best, if not the best, wedding gowns of all time. I wish all the happiness in the world for William and Catherine, and I can't wait to see what's in store for the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
