Sarah Burton has revealed that making Princess Kate’s wedding dress was a “lovely” experience.

The British designer – who is the creative head of Alexander McQueen – had a great time making the one-of-a-kind gown for her wedding to Prince William, which she believes shows a lot of the 29-year-old beauty’s personality. We want to know: is Kate’s style icon Princess Grace of Monaco!

Burton said: “It couldn’t have been more lovely. It was a collaboration. It was made for her and has a lot of her personality in it.”

The identity of Kate’s wedding dress designer was the most guarded secret in the run up to the wedding, and it was almost revealed when Burton “hid” under a big hat and whatnot as she went into the Goring Hotel in London the night before the wedding on 29 April. Some fashionistas, like The Daily Telegraph’s Fashion Director, Hilary Alexander, successfully identified Sarah under her disguise on the grounds of her accessories. That’s what you get for wearing Alexander McQueen accessories Sarah! Should have opted for something different that the things you usually wear – or the label you design for…

While the focus of Kate’s wedding dress, we can now reveal that the Duchess of Cambridge was wearing a little know perfume by British brand Illuminum on her big day.

The scent, entitled White Gardenia Petals, is said to have the smell of a “vase of white flowers quivering in the breeze by an open window”.
