Dresses that are as famous as the one Kate Middleton wore today to marry Prince William only come along every few decades. And the dress's designer, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, is finally speaking after months of flat-out denying that she and her team were involved in the wedding at all. "It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress," Burton said in a statement, adding:

"Alexander McQueen's designs are all about bringing contrasts together to create startling and beautiful clothes and I hope that by marrying traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design we have created a beautiful dress for Catherine on her wedding day. The last few months have been very exciting and an incredible experience for my team and I as we have worked closely with Catherine to create this dress under conditions of the strictest secrecy."
