The Fairytail Wedding

6 May

A middle class young lady, from a small village in England, is now the Duchess of Cambridge. A week ago, the former Kate Middleton, married Prince William in a ceremony seen around the world. Will and Kate are the epitome of modern loyalty.

Dress: Kate entered the Westminster Abbey in a breathtaking gown by Alexander McQueen with elegant lace sleeves and 8 feet long train. The bride’s dress had a hint of blue ribbon sewn into it as her “something blue”.

Veil: The fingertip-length veil was made of ivory silk tulle and had embroidered trim.

Tiara: The ‘halo’ tiara was Kate’s “something borrowed”, loaned by the Queen.

Earings: Kate’s “something new” were a pair of diamond earrings that complemented the tiara.

Makeup: Kate did her own makeup after taking several lessons from makeup artist Arabella Preston. She went for the natural bridal makeup and looked very much like herself with a soft smokey eye look, slightly blushed cheeks and nude lips.

Hair: Her hair was a half-updo with cascading curls created by stylist Richard Ward.

Nail polish: Marina Sandoval created a custom-blend nail polish for the Duchess. It was a mix of Bourjois’ no. 28 Rose Lounge and Essie’s 423 Allure for a classic pale pink bridal manicure.

Perfume: Kate wore White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum. A fragrance also worn by Michelle Obama. It’s a combination of Lily, White Gardenia, Muguet, Jasmine and Amber Wood.

Kate has stayed true to her demure and practical style over the years. She has become a true royal style icon.
