Grazia has posted a statement by the woman behind that amazing dress, to read more click here.

The statement released talks of the honour of being asked to design the dress, how proud she is of what the Alexander McQueen team have created and how the dress represents the best of British craftsmanship.  The dress in Sarah’s words, ” marries traditional fabrics and lacework, with a modern structure and design”.

Sarah can rest now, the world loved it and I’m sure the team are celebrating tonight. Nothing like a bit of positive feedback from 2 billion people to kick-start the weekend!
