Kate Middleton’s Best Looks
The Beginning Of An Era
All our eyes were on the news as we watched the marriage of Kate Middleton and the Prince of Wales, William. It was the first time we saw Kate Middleton, and she looked gorgeous. She wore a beautiful satin gown, which was finished with French and English lace variations throughout. The lace was beautiful, and it covered the skirt and underskirt as well. Apart from this, her ivory-shaded veil was pure silk. What added to the veil’s beauty were the little white embroidered flowers on it. Along with the flowers, Queen Elizabeth’s royal tiara completed the look. To style the outfit, she wore diamond earrings and a pair of shoes made out of the satin and lace used in her outfit. Alexander McQueen designed her shoes and wedding gown, and she has proven that she is a McQueen fan over the years.

Following their wedding, the princess of Wales made a stunning appearance at the BAFTA Brits in July 2011. She wore a lavender-colored full-length gown. A white crystal-studded belt added finishing touches to the gown. This outfit was also a creation by designer Alexander McQueen. She carried a light-colored clutch along with a stone-studded bracelet on her right hand. She wore a light-colored pair of platform heels to go with the gown. Finally, she wore a beautiful ring with a huge stone on her left hand, which was actually her wedding ring. Once again, she kept the eyes pinned on her.

The gown had a V-shaped pleating for the neckline, along with lace of the same color to cover the shoulders. This A-line gown was finished with a darker-colored belt on the waist.
