Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress: Designers Share Their Thoughts!

How much did you love Kate Middleton's wedding dress? Opinions from style icons, influential designers and everyday folks have been overwhelmingly positive. Designer Carolina Herrera even rated Kate's bridal look an 11 on a scale from one to 10! Women's Wear Daily asked some of the top designers (from Vera Wang to Monique Lhuiller to Nicole Miller) to share their thoughts on Kate's Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress. Here's what the designers had to say! Vera Wang: 'This was great for Sarah Burton, and whether it was intentional or accidental, everything worked. It is amazing and wonderful for someone who does not usually do wedding dresses to show such restraint. The dress was cut beautifully, in a subdued way. I found the fitted lace bodice and the fairly large skirt, without tiers or technical draping, just right — a modern version of a tradition that will never be outdated. I would have preferred a closed neckline, however. To me, the veil, often an afterthought, is as important as the dress. Kate’s was perfect — not decorated, trimmed or gathered. And because the blusher had no volume, no wrinkles were over the face. It added mystery and allowed the bride to arrive covered and leave with her face framed.' Monique Lhuillier: 'I was beyond thrilled when I heard Sarah Burton had done the dress. She has really picked up the pieces and has resurged the house. The selection of the designer also shows she takes risks and that’s terrific. The best accessory was the sparkle in her eyes. You could see the love between them in how they looked at eachother. Despite having two billion watching. It was still their moment.' Karl Lagerfeld: 'She is very elegant. The dress is classic and goes very well in the Westminster decor. It almost reminds me of (Queen) Elizabeth’s wedding, the royal weddings in the Fifties. The proportion of the train is good. The lace is very pretty. I like the veil a lot.' Carolina Herrera: 'The dress was absolutely perfect for her. The important thing was that she looked as though she felt very comfortable and moved very well in it. The dress didn’t move. I loved the long sleeves, the lace, the short veil with the little tiara and her hair. If I have to rate her from one to 10, I give her an 11. It was beyond.' Nicole Miller: 'The fit was amazing. It looked like a second skin the way the lace layed so well. I was really impressed. It’s funny in Sarah Burton’s fall show for McQueen, she had five or six dresses at the end. I remember thinking, ‘What’s that about?’ The wedding must have been in the back of her mind.'
