When Kate Middleton made her entrance at Westminster Abbey, the most-sought-after secret was finally revealed. The royal bride appeared in a stunning creation by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The long-sleeved wedding dress with English and French Chantilly lace appliqué bodice, satin gazar pleated skirt and nine-foot train became an instant hit.

To copy the classic, Grace Kelly style, browse these gowns inspired by the new Duchess of Cambridge:



Vera Wang

The delicate illusion sweetheart neckline of the Esther gown allows you to follow the trend without full-length sleeves like the duchess' dress. The A-line skirt features multi-layered Chantilly lace appliqué and an oversized delicate bow sash.
