Sarah Burton should be one proud lady, not only did she design three amazing gowns (Kate's Abbey gown, Pippa's attendant gown, and then Kate's banquet gown - shown below), she has described designing the dresses as "the experience of a lifetime".
While some fashionistas have commented the design was quite safe, particularly for Burton who is renowned for her edgy designs, the general consensus from the estimated 2.5 billion judges who tuned in is that Kate looked every bit the Royal bride, and her gown was a fitting first entry into what is sure to be a lifetime of keen fashion watching of the new Duchess.
Lee McQueen sadly passed away in 2010, but Sleuth is sure he would have been a very proud Brit yesterday, not only for the amazing creations produced by his fashion house, but for the stamp in history his name will now have forevermore.
We can only hope that both Diana and Lee McQueen are looking down with a chilled glass of bubbles, and clinking glasses to their respective successes.
Sleuth's fave online boutique net-a-porter.com has an exclusive line of McQueen wedding gowns & accessories - but if you're in the market, you'd better hurry as these are now likely to waltz out the door in no time!
Happy Shopping! x
