Long Live McQueen

McQueen wore this t-shirt in support of Kate Moss during her
drug problems, but it seems appropriate for the new Princess
The Royal Wedding is over, but it seems everyone is still talking about it. I ended up setting my alarm for 2 a.m. and stayed up for two and a half hours watching the wedding coverage before I fell asleep again. As predicted, Kate's dress was Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton's, creative director of McQueen, very quick dash into the Goring hotel two hours before Kate arrived the day before the wedding seemed to give it away. Although she kept her face covered, she wore a very recognizable belt and ballet flats that created a frenzy in the fashion world. Kate's bold choice of the McQueen fashion house showed that she is quickly turning into the fashionista that I predicted a while back. Too bad Alexander McQueen, who committed suicide last year, wasn't around for such a historical moment.

The second most talked about dress was Pippa Middleton's, which was also designed by Sarah Burton. Apparently her derrière looked so amazing in the McQueen dress that there is a Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society Facebook page with a little over 150,000 fans.

One of the most entertaining things about the wedding were all the crazy hats. Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie take the award for the most hideous hats (my favorite tweet on Twitter was when someone called them Patsy & Edina from the British sitcom "Absolutely Fabulous"), while my favorite hats were worn by Victoria Beckham, Princess Marie-Chantal, and Lady Fredrick Windsor.

Cheers to the couple! Who else is excited for the royal babies?
