Having married Prince William earlier Friday in the wedding of the millennium, Kate Middleton changed into a stunning evening gown for the royal reception.
Like Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, this gown looked nothing short of perfect for a duchess, and was custom designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.
Burton said of her design experience: “Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes.”
We’d say that worked pretty well in this case, wouldn’t you?

Sarah Burton added that in recent weeks, she and her team “worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of strictest secrecy.”
