WEDDING WATCH: Designer of the dress: Sarah Burton
Question of the Day
A quick clarification: The dress that Carole Middleton will be wearing today was designed by the Catherine Walker fashion house. Walker, as noted, died of cancer last year.
“Will, it’s not too late!”
That’s what it says on a sign being held aloft in London by Brenda Hunt-Stevenson, a retired teacher from Newfoundland, Canada. Oh, and she’s dressed as a bride.
“I want to see that kiss on that balcony,” Hunt-Stevenson said. “That’s going to clinch it for me. I don’t care what Kate wears. She is beautiful anyway.”
Royal officials say Catherine Walker designed the dress to be worn by Carole Middleton, the mother of the bride. AP’s Cassandra Vinograd has passed along some details; grab your fashion dictionary and read on:
She’ll be wearing a sky blue wool crepe coat dress, with matching satin piping and passementerie at the waist and cuff. Under that will be a sky blue silk shantung “sydney” day dress, with short pleated sleeves and pleated pocket.
