William & Kate's Royal Wedding

Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal nuptials were sooo last week, but we are still basking in the postwedding glow, aren't you?

Although Buckingham Palace revealed all the details about Kate's stunning Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen gown—and the fashion house also released an official statement immediately following the wedding—we were pretty excited to hear what Burton herself had to say about working with Kate...

During a McQueen meet-and-greet event at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York this morning, Women's Wear Daily reports, the designer dished to a guest that the now Duchess of Cambridge "was one of the most lovely women she has ever met and she was really low maintenance." Yeah, we didn't think Kate would be the bridezilla type.

"She said the palace called her and the collaboration between her and Kate was 50-50," the guest continued, and that the dress had "a lot of Kate's personality in it."

And Meredith Vieira, who was at the event as a client, revealed, "[Burton] loved the secrecy of it until she kind of blew it by running into the Goring Hotel wearing a fur hood, which was from the last collection." Oops!

Now that the wedding and Monday's Alexander McQueen-themed Met Costume Institute Gala (which Burton also attended) are over, what does the designer plan on doing next? "Take a nice vacation," she told Vieira.
