“Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen and the designer of Kate (or Catherine, as she now seems to be called) Middleton’s wedding dress, has issued the following statement…
“It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created. I am delighted that the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship. Alexander McQueen’s designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day….
“Catherine looked absolutely stunning today, and the team at Alexander McQueen are very proud of what we have created. The dress was just one component of a spectacular day, and I do not think it is appropriate to comment any further beyond saying that I personally am very grateful and honoured to have been given the opportunity to work on this project, and I wish TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge every good wish for the future.” (via OnTheRunway)
Kudos and congratulations to Ms. Burton, The Duchess of Cambridge, Mr McQueen (may he rest in peace), and the Royal Family! I have to say that this was a lovely respite from all the tragic news in the world, a tiny breath of fresh air and maybe we can believe in happy endings and marriages and fairytales and princesses, just for a minute…
7. don’t be so super critical of who you love. just trust your gut! stop being so judgmental about the dude you choose! it’s about how you FEEL! i mean geeze, as long as he has a car, money, good style, a nice body, a great relationship with his mom, is funny, ambitious, and treats you with respect… you’re good to go. so date freely and stop over-thinking!
8. shorter nails provide optimal texting capability! this seems trivial, i know. but sometimes we just need a reminder of the little things. i mean, god is in the details, riiiiiiight?
9. when on the precipice or even in the midst of a fling, make-out, hang sesh, hookup- sometimes you have to ask yourself: what is the goal? is it love, or just an experience? It’s important to know how you feel, what you want, what you’re getting yourself into, and how hurt you could get. and then throw all that out the window and just go with the flow.
