Get the Look | Royal Wedding Edition


“The world is waiting with breath that is baited,” I’ve never forgotten that line from “The Cold War” episode of Sex and the City. While I had no interest in waking up at 4 AM to watch the Royal Wedding, I couldn’t wait to see what the future queen would wear to the ceremony and I was not alone. Speculation abounded about who would design the dress and what it would look like for weeks.

Well, the wait is over! Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sara Burton. It had a fitted bodice with a v-neckline, handmade appliqued Chantilly and English lace sleeves, and a nine-foot train. The Queen loaned her the Cartier “Halo” tiara and her custom made Robinson Pelham drop earrings were a gift from her parents. Her veil was embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. Talk about fancy!

Many of us grew up dreaming of having a wedding fit for a princess, but not all of us will be able to borrow expensive jewels from our in-laws for the big day. Not to worry, you can still look like a queen even if you don’t have Princess Catherine’s budget. All you need are a few accessories:

Christina Crystal Teardrop Earrings, $32 (Carolee); Scallop Alencon Lace Edge Veil, $65 (Etsy); Bridal Tiara with Rhinestones, Pearls and Crystals , $149 (David’s Bridal); Lace Bolero, $128 (White House Black Market)
