Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress

The mystery has been solved!

Kate Middleton looked like every bit of a princess when arrived to the Westminster Abbey in her wedding gown.

The designer of the dress was in fact Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

The dress was very similar to Grace Kelly’s wedding dress when she married the Prince of Monaco.

Kate chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the “beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing.”

The details of the dress are as follows: The dress is made with ivory and white satin gazar. The skirt echoes an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats. The train measures two metres 70 centimetres. The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of Alexander McQueen’s designs. The back is finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops. The underskirt is made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace.

Her dress was the only thing that was kept a secret and Kate reportedly did not want to share that with the world because she wanted William to be surprised when he saw her walking down the aisle.
