Now that we are done swooning over Kate Middleton’s stunning Alexander McQueen wedding dress, let’s envision what elegant wedding shoes Kate wore down the aisle. As TrainingHeels previously reported, Kate was shod in custom-made shoes by Alexander McQueen. The lace pattern (not shown but similiar to the above Alexander McQueen shoes) matched the lace on the wedding dress and was hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework. It is said that, to make the lace, workers washed their hands every thirty minutes to keep the lace and threads pristine with the needles being renewed every three hours to keep them sharp and clean. Wow!
You can purchase shoes similar to Kate’s pair on Net-a-Porter. These lace-covered nude pumps by Alexander McQueen are 4 ½-inches high and retail for $995.
Update: Kate’s wedding ensemble is now on display at state rooms of Buckingham Palace through October 3, 2011. Although we didn’t get a good shot of Kate’s shoes during the wedding, you can now full the lacey McQueen shoes (below) in full detail for the first time. Apparently, they are around a size 7.5-8.
