For Princess Eugenie’s wedding today at Windsor’s St. George’s Chapel, Kate Middleton chose Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton. Since Burton created the duchess’ own wedding dress, the British designer has become Middleton’s go-to for glamorous public events, wearing her outfits on numerous occasions.
The duchess’ dress was a dramatic shade of bright pink with structured shoulders and a flared skirt that fell to the knee. The skirt was so flouncy, in fact, that she nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction as the wind whipped about the guests entering the church.
She teamed it with a pair of Prada pumps in velvet in a deep plum shade plus Jimmy Choo’s Ellipse clutch bag in the same color and fabrication. She finished off her look with a floral fascinator hat by the milliner Philip Treacy.
Great minds evidently think alike, as Meghan Markle also chose to wear her wedding dress designer, Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller.
