Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Inspired by Grace Kelly

Kate Middleton Channels Grace Kelly

We were amazed when we saw Kate Middleton in her incredibly beautiful Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown and upon taking a closer look, we realised that the princess's dress resembled that of the iconic Grace Kelly. The late Princess of Monaco's dress was designed by Academy Award winning costume designer Helen Rose, using silk taffeta, rose-point lace and pearls. It's easy to see why Kate would be inspired by Grace; her dress was classically gorgeous, sophisticated and ladylike, without being too over the top. From the lace sleeves, to the form-fitting bodice, to the delicate veil, Kate's gown was a contemporary take on the late, great Grace's elegant style.
