Tried & True: Lace

The moment the world has been waiting for-Kate Middleton's wedding dress unveil! And then, the wedding of the century! To marry Prince William, the now Dutchess of Cambridge chose a simply-stated yet stunning design by Sarah Burton, head designer for the House of Alexander McQueen. The nip-waisted, sheer-laced long sleeves, v-neckline with a form-fitting bodice, full skirt with ruffle bustle at top, and 9 foot train paired with a laced edge veil was beyond appropriate for this modern fairy tale. SHE loved it! It was elegant, 1950-ish, and timeless. It seems to be a tradition that royal wedding gowns include lace. There is something very romantic, vintage, and regal about lace whether it's included in the actual gown or even just the veil. I'm sure Kate's dress selection inspired brides everywhere that lace works, always has and always will.
