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.

Not crazy about the flounce on the bottom, but on the same note it could also be the way it’s being carried. I’m sure it looks totally different once it’s allowed to float naturally. That said, love this dress much more than Kate Middleton’s. This dress is absolutely classic and elegant, but at the same time still feels modern and in this century.

Not sure about the bottom of the dress, but when it comes to veils I love this one so much more than Kate Middleton’s.

Prinsessan Madeleine är så otroligt vacker som hon är och klänningen hennes var fin men inte lika vacker som hennes storasysters, Kronprinsessan Victorias, klänning, som för övrigt var svenskdesignad! Men Madeleine är världens vackrare prinsessa! :)

For all the people claiming this is old fashioned, it will probably be the latest fashion next season. You think it is out of fashion because you’re not used to it. Beds are not the only thing that is allowed to wear a ruffle. She collaborated with the designer telling him what she loves. She wanted a ruffle, so he put on a ruffle. Get over it, it’s lovely on her, and it doesn’t have to match your style… it’s hers.
For the person who’s so hung up on proper titles the official title is (if you want to scold someone for getting it wrong, maybe you should get it right first):
Her Royal Highness Princess William, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus.

A beautiful dress,finally one with sleeves instead of those dreadful strapless ones!

I like the drawing better than the actual dress. The artist rendering has a scalloped bottom not a dust ruffle.

Wow! That dress is beautiful!

She is just beautiful and that gown is outstanding. Now that is what a bride should look like.. I would love to see that gown in long sleeves.

Even though I’m not a fan of the dress, she was so radiant that she could have worn a sack, and it wouldn’t have mattered. She made such a beautiful bride :) Also, what’s with all the Kate Middleton bashing? The comments on here seem to be more about taking snarky shots at her, and any bride who happens to wear a strapless gown, than discussing this lovely bride and her wedding. Sad *SMH*…
