Kate Middleton’s dress: Most perfect wedding gown ever?

The countdown to the dress of the century has been relentless — which designer will Kate Middleton pick for her wedding day, what will it look like, will it bring about world peace? And when Kate, or HRH Duchess of Cambridge as she will now be known, stepped out of the car and into Westminster Abbey, she did not disappoint. With a delicate lace overlay, the gown looked perfectly classic — even, dare we say, fairytale — but the fitted bodice kept it contemporary and out of Disney territory. I wouldn’t have thought something with sleeves (?!) could feel so modern, but leave it to the creative head of Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton, to knock it out of the park. (Or, as EW’s unofficial Royals editor Kristen Baldwin more succinctly put it, “Most perfect wedding dress ever.”)
