How to Get Kate Middleton’s Look!

Posted by Guest Blogger on Apr 30, 2011

Kate Middleton wore a custom-designed wedding dress by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The lace and satin wedding dress featured long sleeves, a V-neckline, full skirt and a train that reached almost 7-feet.

The wedding dress was a classic design that took inspiration from both nature — the skirt resembles a flower opening and there are hand-cut flowers embroidered on the lace — and traditional Victorian details — a corset, padded hips and 58 buttons fastened by Rouleau loops on the back of the dress.

I thought the dress was very similar to the iconic wedding dress Grace Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. Because of the similarities brides who want the “Kate Middleton look” for their wedding won’t have to worry about having a custom made gown. Many designers have similar designs in bridal salons now. Romona Keveza’s Legends line is inspired by iconic brides and have several wedding dresses that feature long lace sleeves. Here are some of my favorite look-a-likes:
