When Kate Middleton and Prince William tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in 2011, it was the wedding of the year — perhaps of the decade.
The bride certainly sparkled in her custom Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown and matching shoes. Many of Kate and William’s guests also stood out for their style that day, including pop star-turned-designer Victoria Beckham, who chose dramatic custom platforms by Christian Louboutin.
Samantha Cameron, wife of Prime Minister David Cameron, looked elegant in a Burberry dress. She wore nude Aldo platforms to complete the look.
Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson chose an elaborate royal blue dress with matching gloves and standout platform slingbacks from Nicholas Kirkwood.
The bride and groom’s families also chose some striking shoes for the big day. Princess Beatrice wore a Valentino coat and pointy-toe metallic ankle-strap pumps, along with a whimsical Phillip Treacy hat.
Kate’s much-buzzed-about sister, Pippa Middleton, and the bride’s mom Carol Middleton both wore custom-made pumps from Helsar, a Portugese brand.
The queen, who on most days can be found in her signature loafers, also donned pumps for the event with dainty bow embellishments.
