If there was an Oscar for Best Wedding Dress of the Year. . . or Century, then Kate’s dress created by Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton was a shoe-in! Do you agree?

The world’s top designers raved to fashion industry bible WWD, calling the gown “beautiful,” (Oscar de la Renta) “very pretty and modern,” (Valentino) and “perfection.” (Mark Badgely)
Only big name American designer Vera Wang, known for dressing dozens of celebrities, including Chelsea Clinton, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Khloe Kardashian, had some teeny tiny criticism — hmm!  ” I would have preferred a closed neckline,” critiqued Vera.

James (Mischka) and I have goosebumps! The dress is perfection; and will stand the test of time. It is a classic Grace Kelly look,” raved Mark Badgley of Badgley Mischka, who has dressed celebrity brides Kellie Pickler, Carmen Electra and Lisa Marie Presley. Now here’s what else the world’s most famous designers had to say:

“It moved beautifully and relaly flattered her figure.” (Isaac Mizrahi)

“The dress was absolutely perfect for her. . . I loved the long sleeves, the lace, the short veil with a little tiara. . . I give her an 11. It was beyond!” (Carolina Herrera)

“I liked the length and it’s rounded cut!” (Giorgio Armani)

Kate‘s dress had a classic elegance with a modern edge.” (Fransisco Costa, Calvin Klein)

“Kate’s dress was beautiful. She looked very regal.” (Donatella Versace)

“The fit looked like it was second skin, the way the lace laid so well. I was really impressed.” (Nicole Miller)

“It was a very traditional, beautiful dress which it needed to be for that type of wedding. Most of all, she devastated with her charm.” (Oscar de le Renta)

So with picky fashionistas giving Kate the thumbs up, what do you think Hollywoodlifers?

I thought the gown was an absolutely genius mix of modern and historical. The body glove fit of the classic lace over a modern corset , the little peplum at the waist and the simple veil over the tiara were STUNNING!

Now tell me what YOU think and Vote!
