This has got to be the most talked about wedding dress of the season and the bride wore it just perfectly!
The hand-cut English lace, the sweetheart bodice complete with a beautiful satin skirt made this Alexander McQueen gown into the perfect fit for a fairytale wedding. Timelessly elegant and understated, I have to admit it was a pleasant surprise as I had expected something much more pompous.
The maid of honour was just as elegant but subdued enough not to overshadow her sister, the bride. Pippa's Alexander McQueen gown was a great example of simple yet flawless elegance.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that Philp Treacy's hats seemed to be very big with the royals and their wedding party as a pregnant Victoria Beckham, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were spotted wearing them. For the life of me I could never understand in what setting one would wear a Philp Treacy hat, but if there was one perfect occasion for these hats, the royal wedding must have been it!
Congrats to the happy couple!
