    Royal dress, take two

    Hi guys, I didnt see it anywhere so I posted it. Hope you guys, like it.

    British Royal Wedding Blogs - Yahoo! Shine


    Prince William, 3. Her Royal Highness Kate, 2.

    That's the number of outfits the newlyweds have donned on their wedding day. Truth be told, though, despite the prince's triple sartorial swap, more eyes are on the Duchess of Cambridge's changeup. And while Kate could've spread the royal wealth, Sarah Burton — creative director of Alexander McQueen — was once again the designing woman behind the evening reception dress.

    The lowdown: Still white, the dress is boldly strapless, although a modest, cropped angora sweater makes it more demure. Like her wedding gown, the material is also "white satin gazar," with a circle skirt made for twirling and a nipped-in waistband with diamante embroidery — which to commoners looks like fancy rhinestone studs. Kate also ditched the veil and tiara, a wise move considering the disco theme at the Buckingham Palace reception.

    In the interest of equal opportunity, William deserves a once-over too. His first outfit, of course, was an officer's tunic in bold red with a blue slash. The Brisbane Times noted how the R.A.F. pilot served in the Royal Marines, Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy, which gave him plenty of uniform choices. The wedding outfit is that of the Irish Guards, except without the black bearskin hat — just as well. His evening outfit is a black tuxedo.

    Incidentally, designer Sarah Burton did release a statement about her experience — ostensibly to say she and her staffers weren't giving any interviews (no doubt due to sheer exhaustion). She did say she "enjoyed every moment," it was "an incredible honour to be asked," and her subterfuge earns her honorary membership in the British security service MI5. (All right, that last part isn't true, but doesn't she deserve it?)

    As for the multiple outfits, ABC News wondered if that would be the sign of the times, considering this occurred with American brides Chelsea Clinton and Carrie Underwood. Then again, plenty of other cultures, such as some parts in India, include costume changes. One wedding site even noted that, in the past, Chinese brides could change "up to 30 times in one wedding." Maybe not even Burton could pull that one off.
