Fashion hits and misses for 2011
HITKate Middleton's wedding dress
It may have looked deceptively simple, but Middletons French chantilly and English cluny lace dress was a timeless sensation. Designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, the ivory and white satin gazar gown was intended to emulate the silhouette of a blossoming flower.
Those working on the dress washed their hands every 30 minutes to make sure fabric and thread remained pristine on the gown. The stunning Middleton even drew comparisons to Grace Kelly in the gown.
