Now that we have finally
witnessed her dress (a gorgeous, classic gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which will surly be copied), we can focus on just how fresh, youthful and beautiful Kate looked on her wedding day. Obviously she was glowing (she was marrying a prince, after all!), but what I loved best was that she looked like herself and not overly made-up. She even took the duty of doing her own makeup herself. She apparently had a few professional lessons to ensure that she got it just right. And we loved the results. Soft smoky eyes, flushed cheeks and a nude lip showed off her
natural beauty. For hair, Kate opted for a half-up/half-down look that showcased that stunning 1936 Cartier tiara. And while it strayed from the traditional updos of royal weddings, it was perfectly suited for a modern-day royal wedding. Hairstylists James Pryce and Richard Ward created the softly curled look, that was both classic and modern at the same time.
