Let’s be realistic: you’re probably not going to become a princess. What’s one of the next best things? Wearing the dress that Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa wore to the biggest wedding of the year, that’s what.
And now your wish has been granted. That bridesmaid’s dress, which received a crazy amount of buzz back in April, has become available to buy on Net-a-Porter.com. For now, the — deep breath — Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen’s silk-crepe ivory gown is available on the U.K. version of the site (but non-U.K. shoppers can still call to reserve) for a not cheap £980, which works out at about $1,500 (that said, the original was thought to be in the region of £20,000, which is $31,000). As for the all important details, it’s pretty much exactly the same as what she wore, apart from a zipper (rather than buttons) at the back. But it only seems to be available in red, which is similar to what Cameron Diaz wore to the 67th Golden Globes. Read more.
A replica of Pippa Middleton’s infamous bridesmaid dress has gone on sale at Debenhams today.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister stole the show at the Royal Wedding in the figure-hugging Alexander McQueen dress which catapulted her – and her bum- to fame.
Following the nuptials, on April 29 this year, high street stores raced to copy the Sarah Burton designs worn by Kate, 29, and 27-year-old Pippa.
However the department store’s version seems to be a very accurate copy, paying close attention to detail with the capped sleeves, cowl neck and silk buttons of the gown. Read more.
Pippa Middleton quite clearly stole the show at a charity boxing match on Saturday night.
Despite being surrounded by Royals and celebrities, no one could argue that the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister was the centre of attention.
While her plunging red halterneck dress by Temperley was on trend – both Geri Halliwell and Prince William’s ex girlfriend Jecca Craig wore similar versions to the event – Pippa’s gown was slightly more revealing.
Not subject to the same protocol as Kate, the pretty brunette can wear whatever she wants and get away with it.
But did Pippa need to make such a bold wardrobe statement?
At the Royal Wedding, her fitted but demure Alexander McQueen dress was enough to propel her to instant stardom.
And up until now, she has always presented herself as elegant and ladylike with her style choices – a refreshing alternative that has no doubt contributed to her popularity.
She was however subject to an embarrassing moment at London Fashion Week earlier this month. Read more.
