London: The world`s most high-profile fashion designers have praised Prince Williams bride Kate Middleton for her "classic" and "beautiful" wedding dress.

The brunette beauty unveiled her highly-anticipated wedding gown to the world on her big day in London, putting an end to months of rumours over who had been given the task of designing the famous frock.

Middleton chose Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton to make her wedding gown.

"She is very elegant. The dress is classic and goes very well in the Westminster decor. I love the modest veil with the Queen Mother`s Thirties scroll tiara and balanced volume of the whole gown. She`s radiant. She never was so beautiful,” the Daily Express quoted legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld as telling Women`s Wear Daily.

Donatella Versace said, "Kate`s dress was beautiful. She looked very regal," while Hubert de Givenchy added, "The dress is very simple and very nice. The veil is a little flat, but because she has such a lovely face, she can afford to wear it this way. She is very pretty."
