I know a lot of people wanted to know why she did not go strapless. The answer to that would be the Abbey. Ladies must cover their arms in some type of sleeve when in the Abbey. With that said, I think Kate did a beautiful job. I live for lace. I think I mentioned that yesterday. :) I find it no big surprise that Kate's gown looks similar too another royal princess; Grace Kelly. Both ladies opted for long lace sleeves, a waist-cinching bodice and full skirt. I believe without a doubt Kate was truly inspired by the classic style that Grace made so popular.
"Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day. The last few months have been very exciting and an incredible experience for my team and I as we have worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of the strictest secrecy."
