Royal wedding: Kate Middleton's second wedding dress

April 29, 2011 |  5:17 pm

Catherine_middleton_second_ With the most formal part of the royal wedding over, new bride Catherine Middleton (now the Duchess of Cambridge) took a quick break at Prince Charles' home and slipped into her second wedding dress of the day -- also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It's a white satin strapless gown with a circle skirt and diamente detailing around the waist.

To complete the look, her hairdressers released her hair from its demi-chignon half-up do and let it fall in her trademark loose curls. And, because it's a little chilly in London, she covered up the dress with a white angora bolero cardigan.

The look is way more relaxed than the first dress, but still manages to look fairytale princess-like.
