It was the dress that we all waited for and, in my opinion, it did not disappoint. Elegant, intricate, masterly crafted, and simply beautiful, Princess Catherine chose a dress for the history books. It is also a much deserved and honored tribute to Britian's premier designer, the late Alexander McQueen and an evolutionary push toward the future for his design house's new designer, Sarah Burton. By wearing a gown by such a prolific modern designer/label as McQueen, the Princess is saying oodles to the public: she will be on the cusp and of-the-moment but also classic and fun. Taking many cues from Princess Diana's designer sartorial leanings is a good call, and it will be fun and interesting to see how Princess Catherine grows in her style. Her first step, seen here, is a fabulous one.
