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.

Nothing at all to criticize here. Absolutely stunningly beautiful.

The bottom doesn’t look like the sketch. I prefer the sketch.

Take note young ladies. Elegant, classy women and real princesses do NOT wear strapless dresses. It is considered too casual and inappropriate.

yikes, Sean Parker has been outdone. I was SHOCKED and APPALLED what that POS and his bridezilla did to our state park! SOB! It’s a disgrace!

The dress is very beautiful and completely fitting for her body shape. As any bride should look on her special day, she was radiant. However, you cannot compare her dress to anyone else’s dress (Duchess Catherine) as it is unfair to both ladies. Your special day is all about you, your spouse and the commitment that you make for the future together.

Absolutely beautiful. So much nicer than that completely strapless, sleeveless number that about 95% of American brides are wearing these days.

Love the dress! It is very elegant and timeless. This dress tops Duchess Catherine’s by far. I’m so tired of seeing the same strapless wedding dresses on brides. They all look like the same cookie cutter dresses.

The dress is not perfect but it looks absolutely beautiful on her and the look is ultimately feminine and romantic – even though it is a bit old-fashioned. I think Valentino got it just right for both the occasion and the bride.
