ROYAL NEWS: Kate Middleton Dons SARAH BURTON For ALEXANDER MCQUEEN For Royal Wedding!

We interrupt YBF news for a Royal break!  The Royal Wedding of the century is going down as we speak at the Westminster Abbey in London.  And Princess Catherine (Kate) Middleton--now the Duchess of Cambridge--just gave everyone a fashion eyegasm in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown.

 

The stunning pics and details when you read on....

 

 

 

There's hardly any YBF faces on the Royal Wedding guest list of Kate & Prince William--but a bit of coverage for you fashion die-hards is indeed necessary for this occasion.

Her sister Pippa arrived this morning in a beautiful long cream gown to tend to her Lady in Waiting duties for Kate as she stepped out of the Rolls Royce Phantom.  Sarah Burton--designer for the house of late British designer Alexander McQueen--is the lucky designer to have her piece walk down the aisle of the Westminster Abbey.  Kate's shoes were also custom McQueen.

Kate's gown is ivory with a Grace Kellyesque long full skirt, and the top is a fitted bodice with long French Chantilly lace sleeves atop a semi-sweetheart neckline strapless bodice. The 'halo' tiara is pure diamonds and has been loaned to Kate by the Queen, who was given it by Cartier in the 1930's.  It was originally given to the Queen Mum by King George VI and presented to Queen Elizabeth when she was 18.

And speaking of diamonds, she rocked pear-shaped diamond earrings designed by Robinson Pelham.

Reportedly, the gown was made with Individual flowers hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered onto ivory silk tulle.  A modest train and cathedral length veil indeed work for the occasion.  And on her nails, she's reportedly wearing Essie's ALLURE.  Kate looks every bit the regal future Queen of England.   Gorgeous!

Groom Prince William--now the Duke of Cambridge--and his brother/Best Man Prince Harry

Also spotted--Elton John and his husband David Furnish and David & Victoria Beckham:



 

Vicki B. rocked one of her own autumn/winter creations in Navy, specially altered to take account of her baby bump.  Black sky-high pumps and a Philip Treacy hat topped off her Royal look.  While hubby David looked yummy as usual in a full Ralph Lauren suit.  Nice!

SIDENOTES: How hot is Kate's brother?! Wouldn't you be pissy if you scored an invite to the Royal Wedding--but had to sit behind one of these English women with an obnoxiously big hat blocking your view like you're back home at your own Baptist church??  Wouldn't you pay money to hear the smart ass comments the Queen is definitely making under her breath during the ceremony? And how much do we LOVE the fact William and Kate look genuinely and eeffortlessly fun and happy--not like most Royal couples?

CNN is live streaming the wedding and has more deets HERE.  More pics:

The Royals are digusting

The Royals are digusting there are living the good life off slavery,murder of a stupid caste sytem wake up people. There do not care about regualr folks upraise and make them not be kings and queens. I did not watch the wedding because I do not care enough to but I will bitch. Anyways the dress was ugly omg very horrible and the whole family is ugly. I mean I guess having sex with there siblings and cousins did not do the gene pool a favor at all lol.

http://www.ibalmain.org/ "The climate in our country is very pleasant. It’s always warm in spring, hot in summer and cold in winter. My favourite season is autumn, because it’s always warm in September and October. It’s often cold in November. It’s certainly interesting. The other reason is the days are short and the nights are long. The sun rises late and sets early. I can do my favourite things in the evening. Autumn is a harvest season. I can make great progress in autumn. I like the golden season, and you?"

It was nice to see something

It was nice to see something positive in the news--because for the last few years, it's been about natural disasters, bad economy and crazy people going on shooting sprees. This is something that is actually uplifting and beautiful. I loved watching the whole thing and Kate's dress was just perfect. They both looked like they were genuinely in love and happy to be together. I just hope that the Royal family is nice to her and don't treat her they way they did Princess Di.**RIP** I feel sorry for Prince Harry-- now he's the most eligible bachelor in the world, although he is cute. s

Over 200 something commits about this post.... seriously, who gives a rat a#@, I'm just saying. I was at the salon Friday morning and so many people had watched, were watching & discussing it. I for one do not care about them or the wedding, shesh it's soooooo not that serious or important with all of the horrible situations going on all over the world.

I read a while ago, a serious

I read a while ago, a serious new piece about the problems of Kate Middleton being a commoner and what implications this would have for her engagement. Commoner. Seriously? I don’t know about you, but when you use the term ‘commoner’ with someone, it is rarely a praise. But this is what we all are in Britain, commoners, peasents, peons, people divided by a blood-based caste system into un-breachable layers of state-granted privilege. This is an idea that should be repugnant to any liberty-loving enlightened person living in the 21st century. Are people outraged? Are they fuck? Yay! Excitement! A big royal wedding and lots of goss! They’re good for the tourism don’t you know? After all, they don’t have any power anyhow. I’ve heard the arguments above in real life (the most prominent being the tourism and “no real power”) ones. Most people don’t care that there’s a royal family. I don’t get it. This teaches me two things. Most people don’t want freedom. Community, a sense of belonging, leaders or gods to follow and worship. People care more about these things than the abstract concept of liberty and freedom. Most people wouldn’t know a serious philosophical idea if it bit them on the arse. It’s rare to meet someone who is acquainted with the meaning of political terms, a knowledge of thought systems and logical fallacies. The overarching ideas of the affront to democracy and republicanism, the use of constitutions, these things are not considered when people think about royalty. The aforementioned tourism argument is an example of this, if a person considers this to be a valid point, then they’ve got their priorities mixed up a little bit on my opinion. By Arguseyes

You people that are

You people that are complaining about Black people not being invited are the stupidest muthafuckas on this Earth. Clearly you did not actually watch it so STFU. If you had you would have saw quite a few even including some in the childrens choir... On top of that all you have to do is look at the fuckin photo of them on the alter with the "Live" caption on the top left corner of the photo and you can count 10 Blacks in the frame of that picture alone. You people are IDIOTS that have to pull the race card on everything

You people could have done a simple internet check instead of claiming not black people were invited. Royals from Lesotho, Swaziland, Tonga and Morocco were invited, as well as several Governor Generals from the Commonwealth, who are black including from Jamaica, St Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts, St Vincent .... I could go on. Those are event black celebs like Kanye who was also invited. Get over it. Sheesh.

So, Natasha, there is a post about the Royal Wedding, but there isn't one about the tornadoes that came through the south, and basically wiped towns and cities off of the map. There were posts about Japan and Haiti, but a natural disaster strikes home, and YBF has nothing.

Sayitnow - You are so right

Sayitnow - You are so right on. I got up early also to watch and my husband watched also as he was getting ready for work. We were watching history and there is nothing wrong with that. The wedding was beautiful the bridal party was beautiful and there were black people at the wedding. I along with anyone else paying attention saw them as well. The mainstream news media may not be showing them but they were there. I loved her dress. I wished more brides dressed like her. Pretty and modest. Also all the white the bridesmaids wore was beautiful as well.

I dont see whats the big deal about THEIR wedding. However, I'm midly interested because I love weddings period. Sn: David Beckham looked good! Also, I notice I hardly ever see successful White men with non-Beckys on TV, yet you never see successful Black men with Black women. The media know what they're doing smh

It's Amazing that every

It's Amazing that every single black owned media outlet reported this wedding and not one single black person was invited, which send a STRONG MESSAGE TO THE WORLD, to hate black ppl and continue their discontent. NO ONE, not one single black media outlet reports when a black king or prince is married. YOU ALL ARE BRAINWASHED AND DO N NOT KNOW YOUR HISTORY to even fatham the thought of supporting the crap. Then you have sell out ass weave wearing black women, that wanna be white and don't know their history celebrating the shit, like they are part to elite club or something. This family is responsible for all kinks of evil and hatred towards humanity on this earth and proved their Allegheny hatred towards black by not inviting the world super power sitting president. IF THE PRESENT PRESIDENT WAS WHITE, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN INVITED!

CLEARLY you did not watch the wedding, otherwise you would have seen that black people WERE invited. I'm British and watched the coverage from start to finish, it was a beautiful wedding and a great display of how us Brits come together on such occasions, and display the best of London. And FYI, no political leader (apart from the British Prime Minister) was invited to the wedding. IT IS NOT A STATE AFFAIR, but a wedding joining man and wife in Holy Matrimony. Cheers

Thanks YBF for posting it.

Thanks YBF for posting it. Loved it! Just because you watched it doesn't mean anything. Sometimes with all the foolishness in the world you want a little escapism. That said... Dress: I knew she was going to pick Sarah Burton. SB did a damn fine job on that dress. Very Grace Kelly like. I hope this means that more brides will go for sleeves or something because I'm tired of the strapless/sleeveless poofy dresses. I know at one or two of y'all have been to wedding and been underwhelmed by a boring dress. (or blinded by back fat) Step outside the box a little. Hats: It looked like a Baptist church. I loved them all. Very creative. Prince William and Harry looked handsome in their uniforms. Prince Harry does seem to have a little swag to him :)

Thanks! I really loved the lace too. I'm nowhere near engaged or married but a lot of my friends are getting married and all of their dresses are starting to blend together. Strapless was the trend of the 2000's... maybe sleeves will be a new thing for the decade...

I don't typically care for long sleeve wedding gowns however I thought Kate pulled this off. She looked like a classic beauty. All the best to the couple. OAN: I'm happy this wedding has come and gone because I'm TIRED of the media talking about and especially Barbara Walters who seems obsessed with the royal family. Maybe we can go back to focusing on America's issues. We have people dying in the south due to tornadoes.
