Princess Catherine's wedding dress has won approval from The Fashion world.

The Duchess of Cambridge wowed the world with her stunning gown - which was created by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen - when she married Prince William last Friday (29.04.11) at London's Westminster Abbey and also managed to impress some of the industry's biggest names.

Bruce Oldfield said: "I congratulate Sarah Burton, as she did not have long to produce this dress. I liked the way the veil lay flat across The Hair without any gathers - probably a circle weighted down with the delicate embroidery. This will be a trend to watch. Catherine needed the volume of the skirt, both to emphasise her tiny waist and to give the dress a sense of importance. I also liked the nod towards a bustle. It all helped towards an appropriately traditional gown."

CHANEL designer Karl Lagerfeld said of Catherine's choice: "She is very elegant and the dress is classic and goes very well in the Westminster decor. It almost reminds me of Queen Elizabeth's wedding, the royal weddings in the 50s. The proportion of the train is good. The lace is very pretty. I like the veil a lot."

As well as being impressed by the dress, Hubert de Givenchy was pleased the brunette beauty went for McQueen, as it paid tribute to the label's founder who committed suicide last February.

He said: "The dress is very simple and very nice. 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.

"Having Alexander McQueen was a lovely thought, a nice tribute."
