I know I am late on this, but I was out of town and didn't have access to a computer. I just have to comment and say that I LOVED Kate's dress and I am loving the cover of WWD today. They asked some of fashions most influential people what they thought of "The Dress."
"I found the fitted lace bodice and the fairly large skirt, without tiers or technical draping, just right-a modern version of a tradition that will never be outdated. I would have preferred a closed neckline, however." Vera Wang
"The dress was absolutely perfect for her. The important detail was that she looked as though she felt very comfortable and moved very well in it. The dress didn't move. I love the long sleeves, the lace, the short veil with the little tiara and her hair. If I have to rate her from one to 10, I give her an 11. It was beyond." Carolina Herrera
"I was beyond thrilled when I heard Sarah Burton had done the dress. She has really picked up the pieces and has resurged the hours. The selection of the designer also shows she takes risks and that's terrific. They best accessory was the sparkle in her eyes. You could see the love between them in how they looked at each other. Despite having 2 billion watching, it was still there moment." Monique Lhuillier
I haven't heard of anyone who dislikes the dress, have you?
