fit for a princess

I, like many others, was slightly obsessed with the Royal Wedding—I may have had dinner at an English restaurant the night before, and I may have risen bright-eyed at 5 a.m. to soak it all in. And I wasn't disappointed. The whole affair was absolutely magical!

I loved Princess Catherine's dress. Sarah Burton, head designer for Alexander McQueen, knocked it out of the park. The dress was classy and elegant with a hint of sexy. It was perfect for showcasing Catherine's natural beauty without overwhelming her. And doesn't William look quite dashing in uniform? 

And let's not forget Pippa, who was also in a Sarah Burton design. While I wasn't crazy about the use of a fabric that wrinkled so easily, I loved how the silhouette flattered her body. 

And we can't talk Royal Wedding without showing a few shots of the fabulous (and some wacky) hats. Who else is in the market for a fascinator?
