The skirt echoes an opening flower, with white satin gazar arches and pleats. The train measures two metres and 70 centimeters long. The ivory satin bodice, which is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, draws on the Victorian tradition of corsetry and is a hallmark of Alexander McQueen's designs. The back is finished with 58 gazar and organza covered buttons fastened by Rouleau loops. The underskirt is made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace. 

Here's the details of the JEWELRY:
Miss Catherine wears a Cartier 'halo' tiara, lent by The Queen, on her wedding day. The tiara was presented to The Queen by her mother (Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) on the occasion of her 18th birthday. Also, Miss Catherine's wedding look completed with a pair of diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the center, by Robinson Pelham. The earrings are inspired from the Middleton family's new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves. According to the official Royal Wedding website, the earrings were made to echo the tiara and a personal gift to the Bride from her parents for her wedding day.
