ROYAL SHOE WRAP
In the tradition of British designers being selected for royal wedding gowns; Kate looked stunning in British label Alexander McQueen.
The official royal wedding blog reports she worked closely with McQueen head designer Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress.
The much speculated on wedding shoes were hand-made by the team at Alexander McQueen and were made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework.
The UK's Daily Mail slammed Victoria Beckham for "Her very high shoes, custom-made by Christian Louboutin and costing well over £1,000, were surely as hazardous to her unborn fourth child as smoking 20 Capstan Full Strength." Ouch. Don't even start me on heels and pregnant women. Please!
Nude was certainly high on the pick list with loads of guests opting for the patent leather variety.
Finally, congratulations to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, for stepping out in a pair of Jimmy Choos. They may have been the most boring pair of Choos I've ever laid eyes on but hey, it could have been so much worse.
