Here Comes the Royal Bride

In case you've been living under a rock for the past year let me be the first to tell you, Prince William is getting married!  So Princess Diana's first born nabbed himself some chick named Catherine Middleton.  Congrats Little Buddy!

Bob Mackie sketched up this AMAZING gown to show how he envisioned the soon to be princess to look on her wedding day.

This sketch is exactly what weddings exemplify!  The design is elegant and just dramatic enough.  It recalls memories of the Helen Rose designed wedding gown of Grace Kelly.  The sketch also nods lovingly to the Cecil Beaton embassy ball gown Audrey wore in "My Fair Lady".  I love the beautiful subtle gold embellishments in organic feather motifs all over the train bottom of the main dress.  The feather designs on the bodice make me think of angels' wings wrapping around her body.  There are no other words for this design other than "Breath Taking!"

I can't wait to start working on this with Mr. Mackie!  We better hurry though, the wedding is approaching FAST!
