Three days has passed since the big reveal of the the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress and we're still talking about it. Before the cermony had finished WWD managed to release a list of comments from the fashion elite about their opinion of the dress and, based on their comments, they loved the dress just as much as we did.
Mark Badgley of Badgley Mischka, speaking for himself and James 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.'
Considering that Sarah Burton has just designed the most highly anticipated dress in decades, the PR at Alexander McQueen has been pretty quiet. With that said, it was nice to have press release hit our inbox shortly after the wedding where the creative director released a statement about working with the new Duchess of Cambridge on 'the' dress.
'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 explained. 'It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day.'
Last weekend the world looked to Britain as Kate Middleton wed Prince William and it looks the royals aren't the only thing the world is embracing.
Newlywed Reese Witherspoon stepped out on this navy knee length dress by British designer, Erdem, teamed with nude Christian Louboutin pumps to attend the photocall of her new film, 'Water for Elephants'.
As a Belgian, I honestly didn’t know much about the Rochas name when I was first approached for the job–I knew that they made perfumes! But eventually my friends were like, “It’s OK–Rochas is really cool.” I really started from zero there, from scratch. But in three years, we grew to a team of 20 people. It was mainly about taking this older French brand and making it shine.
