How Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Was Kept A Secret

This is fascinating!

All the details on how Kate Middleton's wedding dress was kept a secret up until she arrived at Westminster Abbey are slowly beginning to surface.

Insiders say both the lace-makers at the Royal School of Needlework and Alexander McQueen seamstresses were told their work was for a movie, but wouldn't elaborate further.

The dress itself was constructed inside Buckingham Palace by Sarah Burton and a small group of helpers that were signed to secrecy. And if they were ever asked about the fashion house's involvement with the Royal Wedding they had to lie.

Ah, the classic "denial" trick. Works every time.

Kate Middleton's Wedding Gown Might Go On Display

We'd LOVE for this to happen!

On Sunday, Prince Charles' Clarence House office announced the Alexander McQueen wedding gown worn by the woman formerly known as Kate Middleton may be put on display.

A rep said in a statement:

"The Duchess of Cambridge is considering a number of options to give members of the public the opportunity to see close up the skilled British craftsmanship that went into the making of her wedding dress."

We say if they do one, they gotta do the other. It's too pretty NOT to.

Allen Schwartz Already Knocks Off Catherine's Wedding Dress

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?

So much has happened for Sarah Burton in the past year, but creating Kate Middleton's wedding gown is the royal icing on the cake.

The Alexander McQueen creative director said after the big reveal at Westminster Abbey:

"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it" she said today. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created."

Congrats, Sarah! You did an outstanding job!
