Here is an excerpt from the Official  Royal Wedding 2011 website about the intricacy of the wedding dress design :
"The dress is made with ivory and white satin gazar.  The skirt echoes an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats.  The train measures two metres 70 centimetres.  The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of Alexander McQueen’s designs.  The back is finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops.  The underskirt is made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace."

The topic about the wedding dress continue to draw comments around the Internet especially in the social media including Facebook and Twitter.  Media had expressed different opinions about the "Grace Kelly" look of Princess Catherine, but it seems that there been more positive reviews.  On Princess Catherine, "The bride is absolutely stunning". Aside fro the media, the fashion industry is all tuned in about the wedding dress and to the lucky designer Sarah Burton.

Aside from the bride, another woman shines and it is no other than the sister of Catherine, Pippa Middleton.  She is also wearing a very simple and elegant dress that makes her more beautiful just like her sister. She came out the Buckingham Palace balcony along with the the Royal family, standing right next to the new couple Prince William and Princess Catherine with Queen Elizabeth herself.   It was reported that Prince Harry suddenly had his eyes on her?  Can we expect another Royal romance?
