Sarah for Kate in memory of Lee

posted by on 2011.04.29, under articles of interest

it was vintage McQueen but the handwriting  was Sarah Burton for the  new Duchess of Cambridge bride’s dress.

A lovely and yet restrained pale cream color silk dress  with a laced covered bustier and a transparency that came from the sweetheart line of the bodice into a deep V opening with a slight elevation at the nape of the neck;  a classic McQueen narrow sleeve  which finished in a slight v cut hem and an elegantly draped veil that gave the designer trademark away as we caught a glimpse of Kate boarding the coach car that would take her to Westminster Abbey.  Lee would have been proud. Victoria  Beckham was a stand out in her own creation.  All in all a lovely but never overwhelming affair and far  less celebrities that usually are on the invite list for such occasions. befitting of a new generation of Royals.

This is the reception dress very similar to the wedding dress I would call this one a Sarah Burton original….not much of McQueen in it;  lovely and simple, I do like the little angora cardigan, I think all very much in character with who she is as a person.

The Australian contingency was represented by Prime Minister Julia Gillard looking dashing in Aurelio Costarella Jacket, Carla Zapatti silk shirt and skirt by Anthea Crawford, Quentin Bryce Governor General here outfitted in an creation by Pia du Pradal.  All Australia designers…We do need the endorsments…


A lovely ceremony and a lovely dress more understated that I would have expected.
Definetly a collaboration between Sarah and Kate honoring the memory of a great designer.
Loved the headline it said it all…
