Second, I am happy to see that I was right about the dress. There were too many give-aways that it was being designed by the house of McQueen. However... This dress wasn't really representative of McQueen.
This dress was a dialed-down McQueen and a throw-back to Princess Grace of Monaco's dress in 1956.
(Funny how even Kate's bouquet matched that of Grace's.)
This was a lovely dress, and so was Kate's. Kate wore a dress that many brides would wear, myself included.
But I was still disappointed in the dress.
The reason I love (and fear) McQueen is because of the passion in the designs. It's always beautiful, but a bit of glamour. This was not a McQueen dress with glamour. It was a McQueen dress with softness and gentleness.
Anyone could have designed this dress. And while the dress was made to Kate's specifications, I feel like this wouldn't have been the dress McQueen would have designed himself if he were alive.
All Kate needed was a good seamstress to make this dress. Not a design house.
I was expecting something more alluring. Like the wedding dress McQueen designed for Plum Sykes...
Now THAT was a McQueen wedding gown.
