Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

It's really no big secret that I idolize Kate Middleton's style. I swoon over every dress she wears--the cuts are so timeless, elegant, and flattering, made in devastatingly chic fabrics and colors, and paired sparingly with lavish jewelry that is never gaudy. And that lady can wear a fascinator like nobody's business... seriously, I die of envy every time.

So it should come as no surprise that my favorite wedding dress (and the one I will use for my premiere of Wedding Dress Wednesday!) is the one worn by the Duchess of Cambridge herself on April 29, 2011. It's a long-sleeved, lace and ivory satin a-line ball gown, designed by Sarah Burton, the creative director for the late Alexander McQueen.
