Pippa Middleton's Wedding Dress Drew Some Inspiration From Her Sister's — PHOTOS
Since Kate Middleton got married in 2011, the world has been waiting to see her sister walk down the aisle. Well, the big day is finally here, and it was definitely worth the wait. Honoring her sister's lacy look, Pippa Middleton's wedding dress actually looks quite a lot like Kate's. She might have skipped the extra-long train, but the all lace, seamless gown was absolutely stunning, and deserves a closer look.
Although the ceremony wasn't as large as the Royal Wedding, all eyes were on Pippa for her big day. The younger sister of Duchess of Cambridge married James Matthews at the St. Mark's church, in Englefield, Berkshire, according to The Telegraph. While the ceremony wasn't televised like the Royal Wedding, there is something the two had in common — the dress.
Although Middleton's dress didn't have a 25 foot train like her sister had, there were some elements that recalled Kate's Alexander McQueen gown. Middleton wore a stunning shosleeved lace gown to her wedding, which could have been inspired by her little sister's lacy wedding day look. According to Vogue, Middleton's gown was custom designed by Giles Deacon, a popular British fashion designer. The gown was designed to look seamless and had a cut-out back. My words just don't do it justice. Here's a look at the stunning creation.
At first glance, this might look like your typical lacy gown, but it's all about the details. When Middleton turned around, she showed a peek-a-boo, heart-shaped cutout. It gave the dress a little more style and worked perfectly with the capped sleeves and high neckline.
Are you swooning? Because I'm swooning. Her accessories also were similar to her sister Kate's. Middleton wore a Maidenhair Fern tiara with a matching hairpiece was handmade by Robinson Pelham, according to Vogue. The publication reports that she finished off the look with ivory colored Manolo Blahnik pumps.
Twitter was obsessed with her look, too.
The emojis say it all.
Now that's a real compliment.
Think she'll let me borrow it for my future wedding?
Even people who aren't fans of royalty are taking notice.
I can't think of a better way to describe it.
It really doesn't get much prettier than this!
