Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress Photos: Alexander McQueen!

Kate Middleton kept her wedding dress designer a secret since her engagement, and the world waited for her big reveal this morning. And what a reveal it was! The new Princess Catherine wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. “Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress,” the Clarence House said. It is made from hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace. She is wearing matching shoes by Alexander McQueen. The train is over six feet long. “The seamed pleating of the dress breaks the volume and give a great sweeping set of arcs to the train,” said InStyle‘s Fashion Director Hal Rubenstein. “Love, love, love it!”

Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Veil, Tiara and Earrings

The bride’s earrings, made by Robinson Pelham, are diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear-shaped diamond set drop and a pavé set diamond acorn suspended in the center.

Middleton’s veil is made of layers of soft, ivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers, which were embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework, where the lace appliqué for the bodice and skirt were hand-made as well.

Her veil is held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Middleton by The Queen. Middleton’s ‘halo’ tiara was made by Cartier in 1936, and was purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King.

Kate Middleton's Designer Shoe Options - Which Do You Like Best?

Kate Middleton's wedding dress may remain a closely guarded secret, but five famed shoe designers – including a ShoeHunting favorite, Giuseppe Zanotti - have revealed their visions for her Big Day. From precious gems and lace to silk and feathers, each created a fantasy shoe with the future Princess in mind.

"I wanted her shoes to match the classic and sophisticated elements of her [engagement] ring, but with a younger, modern edge," Guisseppe Zanotti tells WWD. "Jewelry for the feet is my DNA, so designing for a princess comes very naturally."

Casadei likened Middleton to "a 2011 Audrey Hepburn." He created "a waterfall of stones dancing down the foot. I can see Kate dancing all night in this 'new tango' heel."

René Caovilla accented his white satin sandals with marabou feathers, while Blahnik opted for sea pearls and organza lilies of the valley, a flower often found in the bouquets of British society brides. His shoe "represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about," he says.

The shoe by Georgina Goodman is an antique Welsh lace pump with Scottish seed pearls and pearl-inspired heel. “I wanted to create something special with an intrinsic emotional value; something old and at the same time mirroring Kate’s fresh modernity. ... I have aimed for a balance between history and femininity fitting the occasion; a kind of luxury recycling.”
