Kate Middleton is WEARING that McQueen Dress
So unless you live under a rock, buried at the bottom of the ocean, covered in deep sea moss, you might have heard something about a wedding today. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge married his longtime girlfriend, Catherine Middleton in a ceremony this morning at London’s Westminster Abbey. William has been in the spotlight since his birth, but now the media gets to turn its attention to his lovely bride.
But let’s be honest about our Joan Rivers tendencies: who is she wearing, who is she wearing? The rumors were true: the wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton at the Alexander McQueen brand, and its elegant satin design and lace bodice are the newest topic of this Royal media frenzy. We don’t have pictures here, but you can see a slideshow on Slate.com, with an interesting article by Simon Doonan asking: “Could the elegant royal wedding signal the end of porno chic?” Well…
Congratulations all around to the happy couple! Next place to watch for Alexander McQueen’s beautiful designs: the opening of the “Savage Beauty” exhibition, next Wednesday, May 4 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. YUP’s accompanying catalog is on its way to bookstores nationwide and many online booksellers already have it available, including our website.
