Kate Middleton's wedding dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen

The best kept secret of the wedding of Prince William with Kate Middleton is today finally unveiled: the bride came down the aisle in an elegant and simple ivory dress Alexander McQueen signature, designed by its current creative director, Sarah Burton.

Kate Middleton, who left two minutes ahead of schedule Goring Hotel, where he spent his last night of single, chose a dress that emphasized her figure and narrow waist with a wide loop in the back and his head was covered by a thin veil.

With a slight cleavage in a "V", the bride's gown was the center of attention of those waiting for the historic moment in Westminster Abbey, where Kate, 29, was accompanied by his father, Michael Middleton, at 11.00 local time (10.00 GMT).

Unlike the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, who wore a short sleeve dress at her wedding to the Duke of Edinburgh in 1947, Kate Middleton chose a model with long sleeves, similar in that, when worn by the mother in 1981 Prince William when she married Prince Charles at St. Paul's Cathedral.

The designer Sarah Kate Burton created a tight sleeves with plenty of lace and a tail of 2'70 meters, much shorter than the wedding dress of Diana, measuring 7.02 meters

For its part, Sarah Ferguson wore a queue of five meters and seven inches in her marriage to Prince Andrew, the uncle of William, held in 1986.

Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa, was tasked to carry the train along the red carpet that covered the central aisle of Westminster Abbey.

Also drew attention to the fact that Kate had chosen to wear their hair loose, adorned with a tiara Cartier, 1936, on loan from the Queen, who had themselves received the Queen Mother for her eighteenth birthday.
