The Winning Sketch

Royal Wedding, Wedding Dresses

Before Kate and Will were even engaged, we asked designers to submit sketches of wedding dress ideas for the future princess. Now that we've actually seen Kate's Alexander McQueen wedding gown, we had to look back and see which designer sketched the closest approximation of the final product. While all of the sketches featured elements of the royal wedding gown, we were amazed at how closely the sketch by the design team at Watters actually resembled Kate's dress. Same lace bodice, same v-neckline, same grand skirt, even a similar ruffle in the back. Well done, Watters team, we're very impressed with your design (and psychic) abilities.
