allen-schwartz-the-first-to-knock-off-catherine-middletons-wedding-gown.jpg

That was fast!

Copy cat designer Allen Schwartz has already made a cheaper version of Kate Middleton's wedding dress and it was completed that afternoon!

Schwartz told the Today Show 35+ workers started creating the Alexander McQueen look-a-like at 1:30 am and was finished 15 hours later at 4pm.

There was, however, a good reason for the rush. On Friday evening it was auctioned off at The 18th Annual Race to Erase MS in in Beverly Hills.

Allen is also working on another version, which will be available to the public for $600 and $700.

The Fashion World Comments On The Duchess Of Cambridge's Dress

designers-comment-on-kate-middletons-alexander-mcqueen-gown.jpg

Everyone's talking about the Duchess of Cambridge's Alexander McQueen wedding gown, so it's only appropriate for other designers to critique it!

Here's what some of the non-chosen ones had to say:

Christian Lacroix:
"I like the dress very much, simpler than expected: A combination just in between 1956 Grace Kelly and 1947 Queen Elizabeth dress. I love the modest veil with the Queen Mother’s Thirties scroll tiara and balanced volume of the whole gown. She’s radiant; She never was so beautiful. And Prince William’s red Irish uniform is gorgeous."

Hubert de Givenchy:
"The dress is very simple and very nice. The veil is a little flat, but because she has such a lovely face, she can afford to wear it this way. She is very pretty."

Donatella Versace:
"Kate's dress was beautiful. She looked very regal."

Mark Badgley of Badgley Mischka:
"James and I have goose bumps! The dress is perfection; and will stand the test of time. It is a classic Grace Kelly look. The skirt is divine. We love the hair down and the veil. The proportion is beautiful."

Tory Burch:
"Kate looked stunning. Choosing Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen reflects Kate’s modern aesthetic and style, but the handmade lace details and craftsmanship are a great nod to British tradition. The lace, the clean lines of the dress, Queen Elizabeth’s tiara—every detail was stunning."

Donna Karan:
"The dress was extremely elegant. For me, it wasn’t so much about the dress though, it was all about her. She was the most beautiful bride in the world."

Francisco Costa:
"Kate’s dress had a classic elegance with a modern edge. The superb detailing really characterized Sarah’s expert hand."

Valentino:
"I loved the dress..it was very simple and young even if an hint of Grace Kelly's dress spoke of 1950s! I loved the flounce on the back of the skirt and the little decoration all around the short veil. I loved the choice of the tiara: simple,pretty, very right for the dress and for her attitude..it was used almost as an hairpiece to keep the hair and the veil, not as a heavy decoration. Compared to the famous Diana’s dress, Diana’s was a dress of a fairytale princess.. still a dress everybody remembers.. Kate’s one is a very pretty, modern dress that will be copied everywhere but lacks that fairytale element."

What do U think of Catherine's dress?

All The Deets On Kate Middleton's Custom McQueen Wedding Dress!

details-on-catherine-middletons-alexander-mcqueen-wedding-gown.jpg

As you've probably heard, Kate Middleton aka the Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot with Prince William in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown — and we have all the deets!

The official Royal Wedding website says the bride chose Sarah Burton and the house of McQueen "for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing".

The site adds:

"Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress."

The dress itself features a lace applique of hand-cut flowers on the bodice and skirt made by the Royal School of Needlework.

All fabrics used were made by British companies and included English lace and French Chantilly lace, ivory and white satin gazar with the underskirt made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace.

The back of the custom McQueen gown was finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops.

Kate also wore hand-made McQueen shoes made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework.

The Duchess of Cambridge's silk tulle veil was held in place by a Cartier tiara, lent to bride by the Queen.

We can't say enough how gorgeous she looked! So breathtaking!
