Kate Middleton's Bridal Hair


Prince William & Kate Middleton

There was a lot of media speculation about Kate Middleton's hair and how she would wear it for her marriage to Prince William.

A few days before the much publicized nuptials Kate appeared wearing her hair in a soft knot.

The media immediately questioned whether or not Kate would be wearing her hair up or down

Although there was tremendous anticipation about the wedding gown, there was just as much interest in Kate's hairstyle.

When Kate emerged from her hotel on her way to the wedding at the spectacular Westminster Abbey her entire bridal ensemble was breathtaking.

Kate's lace embellished long sleeved ivory and white satin gazar gown with 8-foot-train was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Her ivory duchess satin heels were also Alexander McQueen. The wedding gown's bodice and skirt's lace appliqué was handmade by the Royal School of Needlework.

The pleated skirt was made to resemble an opening flower (love!), and the bodice, which was padded at the hips, was designed to draw on the Victorian tradition of corsetry. The wedding dress showed off Kate's tiny waist and was compared to the wedding gown worn by Grace Kelly when she wed.

Kate's Bridal Hairstyle

Kate wore her chocolate brown hair half up and half down in soft waves cascading off a side part. Her hairstyle was the perfect complement to her to her Cartier-designed tiara and understated lace-edged veil.

The stunning tiara which was positioned near the front of her hairline and she wore a side-swept fringe.

Queen Elizabeth II lent the blushing bride the Cartier-designed "halo" tiara. Kate's only accessories besides the tiara was a pair of teardrop diamond earrings which were a personal gift from her parents.
