Britain's Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, got married this year in Westminster Abbey, central London on April 29, 2011. Kate looked breathtaking in her wedding gown designed by Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton. The "ivory satin bodice is padded slightly at the hips and narrowed at the waist, and was inspired by the Victorian tradition of corsetry that is a particular Alexander McQueen hallmark. On the back are 58 buttons of gazar and organza, which fasten by means of Rouleau loops. The underskirt is made of English Cluny lace over silk tulle." REUTERS/Suzanne Plunkett
