Royal Wedding Fashion: Kate Middleton’s second dress of the day

It may have been a fairytale wedding, but as far as The Fashion Police are concerned, the real fairytale would be getting to wear two custom-made Alexander McQueen dresses in one day.

That was the fate of Kate Middleton, or the Duchess of Cambridge as we should probably now be calling her: Kate’s simple ivory gown for the evening reception (a more “intimate” affair for just 300 people) was also designed by Sarah Burton, who can probably expect to rise to even greater prominence as a designer in her own right after the coup of designing not one, but two royal wedding dresses.

We think Sarah did a great job. Like the first dress Kate wore yesterday, this is simple and stylish, and while it will probably draw criticism from some for being too plain, or too predictable, we don’t think your wedding day is the right time to be making adventurous fashion statements or experimenting with radically new looks, so we reckon Kate pitched it just right. Once again, the cut and fit of this dress is perfect, and she couldn’t look lovelier. We’re welling up…
