CONGRATS TO THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

About Bride Chic Yes, here it finally is, the one we've all been waiting for, that defining dress that will influence bridal fashion from this day forward. Consider before Kate Middleton even stepped out of her limo today, designers and dressmakers everywhere were planning replicas of a gown they'd never laid eyes on... Is it possible you ask to duplicate Sarah Burton's masterpiece? We'll see. Kate, now HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, went for both traditional and understated elegance in a lace and ivory silk gown. Topping off her look she wore a tiara and shorter waltz-length veil. The modified train (for Westminster Abbey that is) was no more than ten feet long. Echoes of Grace Kelly's gown are present in this design in the neckline and nipped in waist. Love the line of covered buttons down the back and at the wrists. Designer Burton is the creative director of Alexander McQueen's design house. The flower girl costumes were created by childrenswear designer Nicki Macfarlane. The skirts were ballerina length and pleated with puffed sleeves. Adorable and within the English tradition were ivy and Lily-of-the-Valley headwreaths. Pippa Middleton acting as maid of honor also wore a gown by Sarah Burton that looked like it harked back to the Golden Age of Hollywood in crepe satin sporting a cowl neck Both Burton gowns have the same row-of button detailing down the back, a mark of true tradition in bridal wear. The speculated $50,000 price tag on Kate's wedding dress is not astonishing considering the escalating price of couture despite a sluggish world economy. Consider in 1996 Carolyn Besette's simple body-hugging crepe slip by Narcisio Rodriguez cost $40,000; all I can say is the heck with cost, for me Kate's dress will always be priceless.
