Which came in the form of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Her wedding dress was made with an 1800-year-old lace technique, serving as her “something old”, while her something new was a pair of leaf-shaped diamond earrings specially commissioned by the bride’s parents as a wedding present.
Kate’s halo-style tiara designed in 1936 by Cartier was her something borrowed, and it was borrowed from none other than the Queen herself. As for her something blue, it was another act of incredible subtlety. Kate opted for light-blue ribbon to be sewn into the white gown. No wonder the gown was such a gorgeous shade of white!
