In all honesty, the fashion-savvy were far more intrigued with what Kate Middleton was wearing more so than the wedding festivities!
The morning of the wedding, Style.com posted this article: “Kate Middleton Wears Alexander McQueen,” thus answering the query of many among the nation and around the world. Soon after, articles popped up on the Internet in regards to the second gown Middleton donned for the post-wedding dinner reception at Buckingham Palace.
The creative director of Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton, designed both the wedding and post-wedding reception gowns for Middleton.
The second gown, worn at the evening reception, was a party-appropriate yet simply elegant white satin gazar and strapless, with silver diamante embroidery at the waist. It featured a circle skirt and Middletown paired it with a cropped angora sweater.
McQueen gowns retail (on an average) from $7,000 to $15,000. A budget-friendly replica of the second McQueen gown that Middleton sported at the reception would be THEIA’s silk organza ball gown with crystal-beaded waistband (retails for $1,995) – as shown during April bridal market. This particular THEIA gown hits select Nordstrom bridal boutiques in August.
