|Kate Middleton wearing a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress|
Ahem. Yes. Back to the dress: in the black center of my heart-of-hearts I was hoping that Kate would wear something completely cracked-out,thus inspiring decades of brides to march down the aisle wearing, say, sequined Crocs, cowboy hats and 80's style mini-poufs, all for my amusement. The better part of me wanted her to wear something very modern and minimal, bordering on Tilda wear, that fashion and clothes bloggers could argue about for ages. But Kate, an obviously a smart, and even calculating, young woman, chose a dress that no one could complain about. Reportedly, even the hyper-critical Karl Lagerfeld liked it. May the rest of her choices as a royal be as successful, to the undoing of the tabloid press.
Oh, and I lurve the tiara. There's no garment that can't be made better by some honking big genuine jewels.
Now I wish I had a piece of carrot cake. Weddings do that to me.
