Like most of you, we’ve been up since the wee hours of the morning swooning over the royal wedding coverage. Along with the fabulous fascinators and glamorous hats, we couldn’t help but notice how wonderfully Southern the former Miss Kate Middleton’s dress was! The gown, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (how appropriate, I might add!), features a full train, hand-sewn lace applique over the bodice, and, most notably, sleeves.
Looking to replicate Kate’s classic Grace Kelly look? We’ve got you covered (with lace):
