Royal Wedding Fashion

Mabuhay!

The Royal Wedding was a display of pomp and pagentry at its finest! The British do it so well! I love it!

Here's what we all saw and what I think are hits and misses (photo source):

Hits:

The Beckhams: David in Ralph Lauren and Victoria wore her own design Phillip Treacy hat and sky-high Louboutin heels. Can you spell movie stars?
Like what I always say, musicians are some of the best-dressed people I know. Sir Elton John in a yellow vest and violet tie.
The young and the restless: (from left) Princess Eugenie of York wore an electric blue outfit by Vivienne Westwood while Beatrice of York was in a Valentino number. Both had Phillip Treacy hats.
Camilla Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall always wears a great hat! She wore Anna Valentine.
Kate's mom, Carole Middleton, in a pale blue Catherine Walker ensemble. So fresh and chic!
Gray matters: Prince Albert II and Charlene Wittstock
Here comes the sun! Queen Elizabeth in a cheery, yellow ensemble designed by Angella Kelly

Misses:

Cerulean overload! Tara Palmer-Tomkinson
Not hat: Samantha Cameron should've worn a fascinator instead of her bejeweled clips

Band of brothers:

The coolest brothers in the world at this moment: Prince William and Prince Harry wearing their designated uniforms
His mother's son.

I love Kate! She's elegant, modern, and proper. I'm so looking forward to her "Royal" fashion!

Kate, The Great!

Kate Middleton arrived at Westminster Abbey on Friday wearing a long-sleeved wedding dress with lace bodice and full silk skirt by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Her bridal look included a full veil, a Cartier tiara borrowed from the Queen and a small bouquet of white blooms. Her hair was styled half-up, half-down.

Kate's wedding gown is similar to Grace Kelly's (1956).
The anointed one: Designer Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen designed the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown
Burton became creative director of the British fashion label in 2010, following the suicide of founder Alexander McQueen. She presented her first womenswear collection without him at Paris Fashion Week. It received rave reviews for combining femininity with McQueen's unique style.
Sisters in style: Kate and Pippa in Sarah Burton creations. Kate's dress and shoes were handmade by McQueen's team. She wore drop earrings by Robinson Pelham and “borrowed”, the Queen's 'Halo' tiara made by Cartier in 1936, purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess.
William to Kate: "You look beautiful!"
Aaaaaaaaa! *melts*
