So today April 29th 2011 was the day of the Royal Wedding. Prince William married Kate Middleton (now Duchess of Cambridge) and the wedding was broadcasted, tweeted, facebooked, youtubed and everything else you can think of in this digital day and age.
Media I followed it on: TV – BBC Worldwide and TLC, twitter and facebook
Hours I spent in front of computer/tv : 3.5
Times I had goosebumps: Countless
But the one time my little heart skipped a beat was when she came out of the car and the whole world could have a good look of the dress.
White and ivory, long lace sleeves, vneck, quite plain, but very regal. The dress was created by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which is a great step for the fashion world and British fashion. I love that Kate choose the McQueen House, because it carries a spirit of britishness mixed with contemporary feel, it is a great moment for Sarah Burton! Boy, what a year!
The dress is gorgeous! Very Grace Kelly and Audrey, timeless, classic and simply beautiful. So happy it was not something outrageous and frilly like Princess Diana’s dress. This was we can look back 30 years and still the dress will be amazing and not outdated.
Kate made her hair and makeup by herself, which is incredible. Both because shows how down-to-earth she is and because this is such an incredible pressure. But she looked great, indeed!
But the whole amazingness of this wedding was the idea that a common girl, not born royalty, can live the dream from the fairy tales and become a princess and have the most beautiful wedding the world has seen. We can all dream, right? 🙂
