Royal watchers were abuzz on Saturday, May 20, for a the nearly royal wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews.
Pippa very much looked the part in a regal, romantic gown created by British designer Giles Deacon. Deacon told the press, “it’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion.”
The gown “is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart shaped detail at the back. The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliquéd to create an illusion of the dress having no seams,” said Deacon. And “the lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has layer upon layer to enable a floor-sweeping movement.”
The totally adorable pagegirls and pageboys completed the fairly tale wedding look.
If you love the classic, romantic look of Pippa’s wedding gown, consider the Maggie Sottero Chandler dress.
Like Pippa’s wedding gown, the Chandler features a lace bodice, high neckline, capped sleeves and a-line skirt and keyhole back. But unlike Pippa’s dress which is reported to have cost £40,000 ($52,000 usd) you can purchase the Maggie Sottero Chandler starting at only $500 PreOwned.
