Kate’s Sarah Burton gown is receiving rave reviews from the fashionable set!

Kate Middleton looked breathtaking when she revealed her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, and it looks like we weren’t the only ones smitten with the new bride. HollywoodLife.com chatted with Joe Zee, Eric Daman, and Richard Chai exclusively at Vitaminwater’s fashion school seminar on Apr. 29. The trio was on hand at FIT to promote the Vitaminwater color collection contest, and they said wouldn’t have changed a thing about Kate’s gown!

“I lived for that dress I mean I wanted her to chose Sarah Burton from day one and I think she’s one of the most talented designers in the business right now. The dress was beautiful because it was very Kate and very much about who she is. You know it didn’t overwhelm her, everyone was focused on the design. You don’t want it to be a day about the dress you want it to be a day about the girl wearing the dress and that’s exactly what Kate’s gown did,” Joe said. “The dress was beautiful but still felt very modern, elegant, and sophisticated. It didn’t feel stuffy.”

Richard Chai said, “It was beautiful, she looked like a princess. I think it was a perfect choice and I was really happy it was McQueen and it was Sarah Burton.”

Eric Daman said, “It was appropriate and it embodied what the wedding was all about. It seemed so familial for all the pop and circumstance there wasn’t all that drama I think people were looking for her to outdue Diana and her dress but she didn’t. There were clean, beautiful lines perfect for her body and the moment. It was just so sweet. I think the dress really embodied the whole moment of the day.”

While we couldn’t wait to see Kate’s dress, Joe Zee likes the element of mystery. “I think Kate and WIlliam deserve to have secrecy around the dress. Why should it be revealed for our curiosity to ruin their day?”

So, what did the fashion authorities have to say about the slew of stylish dresses Kate will show off while celebrating? “She’ll probably shed more and more layers throughout the evening and she’ll wind up in a really amazing cocktail dress. I would love to see her in something minimal and simple but still sexy and modern,” Eric said.

“I’m sure she’ll wear color,” Joe said. “She looks dashing in royal blue and it’s so fitting!”
