Sarah Burton took over as creative director last May, shortly after the great designer, Alexander McQueen, hanged himself. Burton was under a tremendous amount of pressure and millions of eyes across the world were on Kate... and her dress. Burton delivered. The dress was appropriate and quite suitable for a princess; lace covered up Kate's sinewy arms and athletic shoulders. Her pretty and naturally made-up face was visible through the sheerest of sheer veils, a perfectly fitted bodice whittled down her already slender waist and the back detail was marvelously folded and draped without becoming too heavy. Well done Ms. Burton. And well done Ms. Middleton -- pardon me, I meant, Princess Catherine.
