Although the recent royal wedding had everyone talking about Kate Middleton and Prince William, there was one person who had a surprisingly lasting impression on everyone: Kate’s sister, Pippa.
Here we see her stepping out post-wedding in a gorgeous Temperley London evening gown with silver strappy heels by Aruna Seth. We love this look, especially the heels.
For a bridal version of Pippa’s outfit, check out this similar dress also by Temperley London.

The same designers who made Grace Kelly’s iconic lacey wedding dress also contributed to making Kate Middleton’s much-envied wedding gown. Solstiss, a French lace making company, were contacted just 15 days before the wedding to produce 25 meters of lace for Kate’s wedding dress. The company had to keep their involvement a secret until the day of the ceremony. It wasn’t until the morning of the ceremony that Alexander McQueen’s production manager confirmed that Kate’s dress was made with 2,000 lace patterns appliqued on lace and tulle.
“As for every Haute Couture or Ready to Wear show it is a last minute surprise,” says Christopher Machu, President of Solstiss. “You never know in advance. This is the magic of our business”
We’re not surprised the lace was made by Solstiss. After all, french lace is always very chic!

Check out Kate Middleton leaving Clarence House on her way to Buckingham Palace for the royal wedding reception. She’s changed into her second wedding dress, a gorgeous look with an embellished belt and a fluffy white sweater. The look is casual enough to still be elegant but also laid-back enough for a wedding reception.

The wedding of the decade lived up to its hype. Today (and extremely early in the morning for us Americans) Kate Middleton and Prince William tied the knot in a monumental ceremony people will be talking about for years. Kate Middleton wore a stunningly classic wedding dress by Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton.
Although the dress wasn’t as avant guarde as a typical McQueen dress, the look was simple, beautiful and perfect for the princess. The dress reminds us of the wedding dress Grace Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainner III of Monaco.
Kate’s accessories perfectly tied the whole look together. Her tiara was designed by Cartier and originally belonged to the Queen Mother. Her drop diamond earrings were made by Robinson Pelham and were a gift from Kate’s parents.
Classic elegance was the theme for the rest of the wedding party. Here, maid of honor Pippa Middleton leads the wedding party into Westminster Abbey. Her gorgeous white bridesmaid dress, also made by Sarah Burton, could easily have been a wedding dress as well!
The four flower girls, dressed in adorable cream dresses were accompanied by two pageboys who were dressed in traditional dress to match the groom.
Mother of the bride, Carole Middleton, also looked radiant in her gorgeous blue coat dress by Catherine Walker.
