In the midst of all the pompousness of this Royal Wedding, some of the main characters managed to remain down-to-earth... and THAT I loved.
First and foremost, Kate Middleton. She did her own make up? What? I love her.
Of course, probably the best make-up artists in the world gave her hundreds of private lessons, but she did it herself and it looked great. Period.
Then, we have the dress. Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Perfection. Also, this could go down as the best-kept secret in Pop Culture history.
That train was divine. Not crazy long like some we have seen in the past, but still long enough to look regal. No creases. Beautiful bodice, elegant and tasteful lace.
Sarah Burton, do you have a budget-friendly line? I'm guessing not. Oh well, I had to ask.
I wonder, if Alexander McQueen was still around, would Kate have asked him to make her dress? Hmm....
Oh Well, Hello Sister!
Now, who's that holding her train? That's sis Pippa Middleton. (Pippa... I might name my kid Pippa. Not Philippa, no. Just Pippa)
She's GORG also wearing Sarah Burton for McQueen.
This also shows how good of a person Kate is. Sis has an amazing body and she let her rock that. Most brides throw all sorts of crazy fabrics on top of their bridesmaids to remain the center of attention.
Also, Kate let her wear her same designer... and MOST importantly, she let her rock WHITE. (Bridezillas, take note!)
Someone else also stole the show. Another sibling... Prince Harry who was proclaimed by Twitter as the official PILF of the Royal Wedding. (Come on, you know what that means!)
Twitter also implied Pippa and Harry should hook up. I want those two to be the protagonists of the next Royal Wedding!
But apparently not everyone agrees with me.
Oh, Bill Streeter, you are no fun. Also... #saynotomisspelledhashtags
Back to Harry and Pippa
Someone else who may not agree with this pairing is this lady right here. Harry's on-again, off-again girlfriend, Chelsea Davy.
What is she wearing? Yeah, Alberta Ferretti. I'm aware of that. But, what exactly is that?
Can we talk about the hair? I'm blogging at home, and my hair looks better than that.
She looks like she's hungover!
Are we doing teams here? In case we are... #teamPippa!
Princess Beatrice is Scary
Maybe it's the raccoon eyes. Maybe it's her crazy Philip Treacy hat.
Maybe, it's just everything about her!
Fergie's genes are all over this kid, and we all know those genes aren't exactly the kind you want to be dealing with.
Oh, The Beckhams!
Can we say elegance?
David Beckham should be the dictionary illustration of the word "Dapper". I also love that he's not wearing his Philip Treacy black top hat... it's just an accessory. He's just so cool.
And Victoria Beckham wearing Victoria Beckham. That sleek ponytail, those 5-inch Louboutins during pregnancy, the nowhere-to-be-found smile and that perfect topper. I ADORE this couple.
So yeah, they're married. It's over.
Till the next brave mortal decides to join the royal family, I leave you with this thoughts.
1- William is like a little (balding) kid. The waving, that let's-get-it-over-with kiss and the blushing. Cute, very cute.
2- Kate is SO composed. How does she do it? She even got the ventriloquism down. Not even the most expert lip reader could guess what she's saying!
3- I think Harry will probably get married at age 40. He just looks like that kind of guy.
4- I wish Princess Diana would have been there to seen it all.
