The world can undoubtedly agree, Catherine Middleton looked stunning as she married Prince William.
Middleton, now known as Catherine, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, wore a dress designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
According to a press release, Middleton wished for her dress to "combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterizes Alexander McQueen’s work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress."
The ivory and white satin gown's sweeping train reached just over six feet and Middleton wore a long, sheer veil.
Now take a look back at some of the dresses worn by past royal brides.
