Royal Wedding Shoes

With only two days before the BIG DAY, we are all anticipating what Kate will wear down the aisle, including her shoes!  Take a look at the sketches from top designers for Kate's walk down the Royal aisle.

Manolo Blahnik
His design: An ivory silk pump with organza lilies of the valley and sea pearls
"It represents springtime and everything fresh and new, which is what Kate Middleton is all about."

Giuseppe Zanotti
His design: A black satin sandal with large sapphire centerpiece and surrounding diamonds, on a metal-tipped stiletto
"I wanted her shoes to match the classic and sophisticated elements of her ring, but with a younger, modern edge. Jewelry for the feet is my DNA, so designing for a princess comes very naturally."

René Caovilla
His design: A white satin sandal with marabou feathers and multicolor Swarovski crystal gems
"This shoe is fit for a princess because the sandal is elegant, sexy and precious, and it suggests a magical atmosphere."
