Kate Middleton Channels Grace Kelly in Her Gorgeous Alexander McQueen Gown  

When we first saw Kate Middleton, now Princess Catherine (actually now the Duchess of Cambridge), in her wedding gown, we were speechless at how beautifully the Sarah Burton-designed gown came out. Upon taking a closer look, we realized that the princess's dress resembled that of another iconic princess — Grace Kelly. It's easy to see why Kate would be inspired by the Princess of Monaco; her dress was classically gorgeous, sophisticated, and ladylike, without being too over the top. From the lace sleeves, to the form-fitting bodice, to the delicate veil, Kate's gown was a contemporary take on the late, great Grace's elegant style.

Their bouquets were very similar as well!

Just goes to show what an icon Grace still is, even 29 years after her death and 55 years after her own wedding.

I agree.Kate was beautiful,but not in a stop-and-stare kind of way,whereas Grace stops traffic in hers.

I know exactly what Val means, and I agree. Kate looked radiant and absolutely stunning in this dress and I love that she channeled Grace. But Grace in her wedding gown was just... there was something ethereal, heavenly and very fragile about it. I can´t describe it.

When I saw Kate's dress for the first time, I actually turned to my mom and said exactly, "She's definitely channeling Grace Kelly with that dress!"

Kate looked pretty, beautiful, even. But there's something about Grace in her dress. Breathtaking. <3

Agreeing with you all - no one can compare to Grace.

Kate looked lovely though and it was obvious where the inspiration for her dress came from!
