A priest could barely contain his excitement following the royal wedding and did cartwheels down the aisle!

Video: Designer Vera Wang Weighs In On Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress

Apr 29, 2011 09:23 AM

The most highly anticipated moment of the day was when Kate Middleton finally revealed her wedding dress.

A custom made ivory gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which echoed Grace Kelly's classic lace gown.

Wedding dress designer to the stars, Vera Wang, who designed custom gowns for Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson, called the gown "an emotional statement."

"She's made her very own strong personal statement as to who she really is, it's that she is really her own person, that she has a sense of her own elegance and what is appropriate," Wang said. "She's showing the world that she's not here to only dress for fashion, she's here to dress for herself in a very elegant and dignified manner and I think that says volumes about who she is and the task that lies ahead for her.

Wang's favorite part? The veil!

"She wore such a simple veil over such a beautiful dress in its classicism," Wang said. Of course, it the "simplicity" of the veil was topped off by a "halo" tiara lent to Middleton by the Queen herself!

Not only do they have the pedigree, the looks and the wallets, but they get to spend all day competing at horse shows on steeds that cost more than most folks make in a year! Rough life...

You're probably used to reading about a different Fergie on the pages of X17 (that one's still with her current), but we're talking about the original here, the Duchess of York, who reunited with her ex (after moving in with him temporarily) for a family ski vacation with daughters Beatrice and Eugenie in Switzerland.

Although it's doubtful these two will ever actually get back together, it's wonderful to see a divorced couple who can remain good friends!
