What a whirl wind of a day! I was up at 3, in the make-up chair at 4, and live on tv every half hour from 5:15-8 on WTNH/My TV 9. Afterward, we hosted a royal wedding viewing party with some of the industries brightest talents and our lovely brides.Â To watch a sneak peek of the footage from today, click here.
When I saw Kate (Princess Catherine) glide down the aisle of Westminster Abbey, I was breathless! I felt like it was my own wedding day! She looked absolutely stunning in a long sleeve lace accented gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Â It was reminiscent of Princess Grace's gown and certainly reached every single expectation that I had of its beauty!Â IÂ made predictions
Â about what she might wear and was pleased to see that she did not disappoint!
I was thrilled to see that Kate chose a sleeved silhouette for her gown. It was the appropriate choice for The Abbey. I was also happy to see that she wore a traditional blusher over her face and selected a gown with a long train. What I admire about Kate is that she chose a gown and wedding details that were in line with tradition, but also reflective of her personal style.
I loved Pippaâs choice of a bridesmaid dress. It was modern, elegant and sophisticated. I foresee a lot of brides wanting to recreate that look for their wedding gown! I adored that all of the attendants were in a shade of ivory. It was not only elegant, but completely fresh. The flower girls were absolutely precious. I was enamored with the fact that the flower girl attire was reminiscent of that of Dianaâs wedding. I imagine that they made that selection as an homage to her.
This wedding will signify a change in the wedding industry. It will bring back all things lady-like and elegant. We will begin to see more classic formal gowns, traditional veils, gloves and hats! What a thrill!Â Â Stay tuned to the blog for additional media coverage and images from our viewing soiree!
