For tonight's private reception hosted by Prince Charles, Kate Middleton changed into another dress by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, the Daily Mail reports.

Her second frock of the day is a beautiful white strapless satin gazar gown with silver diamante embellishment at the waist and a circle skirt. The bride paired it with a cropped angora sweater.

To complement the ensemble, she let down her brunette locks in a cascade of soft curls. The look is more relaxed than her half-up, half-down 'do from the ceremony.

Kate wore a long-sleeved dress with lace appliqué bodice, satin gazar pleated skirt and nine-foot train by the McQueen designer for her marriage service at Westminster Abbey earlier today.

This evening's event at Buckingham Palace, which will include dancing and dinner, is a much more intimate affair, with only 300 of the bride and groom's close friends and family on the guest list.

    The angora sweater is nice, however, what's with the lumpy undergarment/bra???

  • Grandmakitty

    I remember angora from college - wear an angora sweater and every man's jacket within 50ft will have angora fuzz - whether you have danced with them or not! LOL

  • Jim McDermott

  • randy maged

    Gorgeous....but pointy bras went out in the 60's and THAT was a good thing. Both dresses had sewn in bras that were way too pointy. Rounded woukd have been fabulous. She's so soft...and pointy is hard looking.

  • Nancy

    It's pretty difficult to sew a dart that isn't pointed. Try it sometime and see if you can do it. It's as well done as any seamstress can do it. Picky, picky, picky.

  • Barbara

    Kate is a natural beauty no matter what she wears.

  • AJ

    Beautiful bride and beautiful taste on both of the dresses.

  • toni

    I absolutely love Kate's second wedding dress, so classy looking!! Beautiful couple. I feel so sad that Princess Diana is not here to witness this special day.

  • Lisa

    She is simply stunning.
