In the words of Captain Jack Sparrow 'Weddings weddings I love weddings, drinks all around.' Well there was cause to drink for this one. It was reported that 2 billion tuned in to watch the 2nd in line for the throne marry his 10 year sweetheart.

|And the adorable wedding portrait|
|Notice the studded belt... that is what many saw as the give away|
I said there was no way you could pay me to get up to watch the festivities... I may or may not have lied about that. Alright, I did get up at quarter to six to see it, but I maintain that I only wanted to see the dress and stayed long enough to see it and then mercifully went back to bed. And how glad am I that I saw it... SO GLAD! It was perfection.
|Burton used English lace and French Chantilly lace on the bodice and sleeves of the gown and white satin gazaar for the skirt that was meant to resemble a flower|
|The dress featured a form fitting silhouette and a V-neck décolleté|
|My favorite image of Kate and Pippa and the dresses, both by McQueen|
|Look at the skirt of Kate's dress and you can see even more intricate lacework... The two dresses are similar in their sleek form fitting silhouettes, lace bodices and sleeves and voluminous skirts|
Kate wasn't the only well dressed Middleton at the wedding by far. Some even think her sister Pippa upstaged her on her big day... you can decide what you think
|In McQueen for the ceremony and Alice Temperly for the banquet and party after|
Guests, too, pulled out all the stops and there were some fantastic outfits, tuxes and fascinators - those amazingly crazy hats that milliners like Philip Treacy, a close friend of Lee's, created for many of the women attending.

|Introducing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge... so let's leave em alone to enjoy being married|
|Can she stop being so gorge please?|
Now that Kate is married and the dress issue is over you'd think I'd shut up about McQueen... haha you must be joking. The Met Ball is probably starting as I type and I found this image of the interior earlier, I can only imagine how amazing it is going to look filled with his dresses and gorgeous people... tune in soon to see the looks.
Here are some of the dresses that will be showcased in the exhibit:
|Stella Tennant in a gown from the Voss 2001 show|
|Raquel Zimmerman in one of the chess piece inspired outfits from It's Only A Game in 2005|
|Coco Rocha in a straightjacket from the Voss 2001 show|
|Karen Elson in a lace gown from the Willows of Culloden show 2006 - this dress was based off of Sarah's wedding dress|
|Karlie Kloss from Number 13 in 1999 - this is the show Shalom Harlow finished spinning on a turntable being strayed by robots|
|Caroline Trentini in the famous flower gown from the Sarabande show in 2007|
Don't argue with he, the man was a genius. Can't wait until tomorrow!
- Life is good
