Kate Middleton's wedding dress

Catherine Middleton's much-anticipated wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton, creative director for Alexander McQueen. According to the official royal wedding website, "Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress."

The dress, made of ivory and white satin gazar, features English lace and French Chantilly lace throughout the bodice and skirt. The bride also wore a veil of ivory silk tulle held in place by a Cartier "halo" tiara borrowed from the Queen.

All of these details came from the official wedding site. Go here to learn more about Kate Middleton's attire, jewelry, and bouquet, as well as the bridesmaids' dresses and page uniforms.

It was interesting to watch a royal wedding in London, with Prince William getting married to Kate Middleton - eagerly watched by two billion people.

Thanks Simon!

Yes that dress was truly stunning. An absolute work of art. Kate showed such good taste and restraint in her choice. Looking back, many years from now, Kate's dress will hold up much better in photographs than Diana's does.
