The Wedding of the Century!

So Kate Middleton and Prince William got married this week, (as If you didn't know) and she wore a dress designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. I'm sure everyone saw the dress, and i'll get to it eventually in the post, but first, let's go through what everyone else in attendance wore:

Mother of the bride, Carole Middleton,was all smiles in her "Something Blue" attire.

Grand-daughters to Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Eugenie wore a cobalt blue Vivienne Westwood outfit, while Princess Beatrice wore a blush Valentino number, both in Phillip Treacy hats. Is it me, or do they look like Cinderella's evil step-sisters?

 Celebrity power couple David and a pregnant Victoria Beckham were also in attendance. David wore a more traditional penguin-esque tail coat, while Victoria wore six-inch Louboutin's and a dress of her own design, head-piece also by Phillip Treacy.

 Tara Palmer Tomkinson was just... They should have turned her back at the church door for so much damn blue. Distasteful.

 UK Prime Minister, David Cameron and wife Sarah, who, while looking fine in a ruched silk-crepe Burberry dress, was the only invited guest to have not worn a hat. Inappropriate.

 As the maid of honour, Pippa, the bride's sister, also wore Alexander McQueen designed by Sarah Burton. Divine.

 Doesn't she just take your breath away?

 The groom didn't look too shabby himself. He opted to wear the official uniform for a Colonel of the Irish Guards, one of his honorary titles. A garter sash and star, his Royal Air Force wings and a Golden Jubilee medal lent further dignity to the look.

 I'm not usually one for monochrome looks, but Princess Letizia of Spain looked awesome in an elegant sheer-and-lace dress with floral embroidery accessorized with matching satin pumps and a netted-feathered hat.

 I just love Queen Elizabeth II! She looked every bit the lady in a sunny Angela Kelly wool crepe dress and coat paired with a ladylike satchel and pumps, pearls and diamond brooch.

Harry looked dashing in the uniform of the Captain of the Household Cavalry, a navy blue military suit with aiguilettes, cross-belt and gold waist belt.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel of Sweden looked terrific. I love the peach colour on Victoria, and the sun hat! And that wrap detail is very chic.

Chelsea Davy, Prince Harry's on-again, off-again girlfriend chose a teal Alberta Ferretti dress and jacket combo paired with a fascinator by Victoria Grant. I think she looks terrible.

Zara Phillips, eldest grand-daughter to Queen Elizabeth II, arrived with fiance English rugby star, Mike Tindall. Zara, wore a Phillip Treacy hat, and what appears to be an Akris coat-dress. The two will reportedly wed in June or July.

  1. OMG!!! I was soooo thinking the Cinderella's ugly step sisters thing even before I saw your comment... Prince Harry's on-again and off-again girlfriend looks a mess. She looks like she shopped in a second hand store in the poorest country in the world...kmt! makes me wonder what Prince Harry is covering up (clears throat). I absolute loved Victoria's look... I soooo agree with all your comments except for your comment on the queen.... she looks like a Yellow Canary bird.. kmt...
