Talk about a fairytale wedding dress! Princess Madeleine of Sweden walked down the aisle on Saturday in Stockholm wearing a jaw-dropping Valentino Haute Couture gown for her nuptials to New York banker Christopher O’Neill.

And (dare we say it) the ivory lace-top confection gives Duchess Catherine’s custom Alexander McQueen some royal competition.

With small vertical pleats emphasizing the bride’s waist, the dress featured a full skirt trailed by a statement-making 4-meter long train.

Madeleine, 30, added a 6-meter long veil embroidered with Chantilly lace flowers and of course her tiara, which was adorned with fresh orange blossoms for the lavish ceremony in front of 470 European royals and top New York socialites.

“Working with Princess Madeleine has just been so easy,” designer Valentino Garavani said in a statement. “She is a very lovely girl. She is modern, fun, full of energy and enthusiasm, and she is so beautiful. It has been a pleasure and an honor.”

The couple, who announced their engagement in 2012, met through mutual friends in New York where they both live.

Madeleine’s wedding, Madeleine’s Beauty, Madeleine’s dress and wedding service, puts William and Kate’s boring stiff wedding to the back of the room. Madeleine is Most Beautiful Princess all around, She’s on the level of Princess Grace beauty, not the over-hyped like some.

It’s wonderful to see European brides wearing beautiful gowns that show respect for the Chapels, Cathedrals and Churches they are married in. American women could learn a thing or two from these women who choose gowns that are appropriately modest and still stunningly gorgeous.

Beautiful and Romantic.

The laces are beautiful, the veil too.
But I dislike the curvy line beneath the bust and how the bust is shaped. It’s like the dress is made for a skinny A-cup-model. Like the Valentino-drawing implies.
Madeleine is slim and beautiful – but to be honest – the dress does practically nothing for her figure.
She had deserved a wedding dress with a better fitting.

The original design is fabulous, but it’s not the gown she ended up wearing. There were some modifications to the final product and they took away from the original gown’s fabulousness. Instead of a scalloped hem she opted for a deep ruffle… bleh. But overall, it fit her well. Just not fabulous, like Ivanka Trump’s gown several years ago.
