Kate's "Something Old, New, Borrowed And Blue"

by guestofaguest · April 29, 2011

In keeping with bridal tradition, (and following in Princess Di's footsteps), Kate Middleton showed up today in something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Find out which was what, below...

Something old: The bridal gown, from Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, featured "traditional Carrickmacross craftsmanship," a lace technique that dates back to the 1800s.

Something new: Her parents gifted their daughter with custom-made diamond oak-leaf earrings with a diamond-encrusted acorn set in the middle, a nod to their new family crest.

Something borrowed: Kate’s tiara, on loan from the queen herself, per royal wedding tradition, is a 1936 Cartier "halo."

Something blue: We can't see it, but a blue ribbon is sewn into the interior of her dress.
