"She is very elegant," Karl Lagerfeld told
"Kate's dress was simply elegant," Viktor & Rolf said. "Her hair down was a beautiful and natural touch, and the tiara was stunning. She looked as at-ease as humanly possible and was radiant. Our compliments."
"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it," Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen.
"I like the dress very much, simpler than expected: A combination just in between 1956 Grace Kelly and 1947 Queen Elizabeth dress," Christian Lacroix told WWD. "I love the modest veil with the Queen Mother's Thirties scroll tiara and balanced volume of the whole gown. She's radiant; she never was so beautiful. And Prince William's red Irish uniform is gorgeous."
"The dress is very simple and very nice," Hubert de Givenchy added. "The veil is a little flat, but because she has such a lovely face, she can afford to wear it this way. She is very pretty." About choosing a dress from McQueen, whose founder committed suicide last year, De Givenchy said: "It's a lovely thought, a nice tribute."
