I think it’s a little underwhelming, actually. I mean…it’s pretty, but not terribly interesting. A very “safe” choice. I would have expected something so much more interesting from the McQueen house.

@MrsNeutrino: Yes, but I like Kates sleeves better, withou the flair 🙂

I think it’s ok. I like the dress itself but I wish the sleeves were shorter. The wrist-length of them is just a little 80s to me still… i think at a 3/4 length or elbow length it would’ve been more modern. Also I didn’t care for the veil. It seemed kind of…………………. limp?

@CorgiTales: it looked leavy right? I still loved it! And i thought.. omg.. i NEVER thought to wear a short veil with my trained dress… that will be a trend for sure!

I actually really liked her look! I think it was pretty, classic, and understated when it would have been easy to be really over the top.

I doubt the style will catch on in the same way that Diana’s did, though…it’s nothing new, and it’s probably not a style that would flatter a variety of body types.

I also love it! I think it looks very royal and very classy. She is one of the most stunning brides I’ve seen!

@Blue-Bird: This was my fave moment as it was the first moment we saw it, glad you posted this.

I think she made a perfect choice. It wouldn’t be right if she was too much of a sexy bride. It was understated but when I saw the lace I screamed out ‘Yes’! I was wishing and hoping for lace. Thought it very appropriate for a princess and beautiful.

@CorgiTales:

 

I too thought the veil needed umph.

 

As for the dress perhaps 3/4 sleeves would have been nice, but that GK look ….is timeless and perfect. Not too poofy and not slender either. She can walk around, but still feel Princessy… Just my take.

She is gorgeous. I was surprised on the dress myself. I pictured her in something sleeker. I think what she chose was perfect for the royal marriage. She really looked classy and didn’t expose too much.

She looked elegant and regal, like a future queen. Her choice was beautiful, yet a little edgy.  Too safe for me, but I hear on CNN that sales for this Alexander McQueen dress have been flying off the shelves. One of my favorite designers, btw.

The more I look at it, the less I like it. It’s the neckline and the collar–too severe. and I don’t like the pleats in the skirt at the front. I hate to say it, but… I am officially disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, though, the girl looked good. And, my goodness, talk about scrutiny….!
