I didn’t realize it, but Pippa Middleton was wearing Alexander McQueen, just like her sister. If you were anything like me, you were all “Kate, get out of the way so I can see your sister’s gorgeous dress!” And it was – which shows me that while I might sometimes think negative thoughts about My Beloved Duchess of Crumpets, she was a decent enough person to let her sister wear a really beautiful maid of honor dress. It was so pretty, I thought it would make a stunning wedding dress on it’s own.
As it turns out, this is (probably) not Sarah Burton for McQueen, this is flat-out McQueen. Cameron Diaz wore the same dress in red for this year’s Golden Globes. The House of McQueen likely just replicated a season-old gown in white/ivory for Pippa. I love it. I also think there were some adjustments made, like with the buttons in the back.
I know a lot of you were hating on Pippa for not being as pretty as her sister, and I even got into it yesterday because the chica was orange, but I think Pippa looked really lovely. She was well-behaved too. And I know some of you are all “OMG, Pippa and Harry!!!” Nope. He likes ‘em trashy and blonde, not pert and brunette. But it’s a nice image.
UPDATE: I just added a few more photos that came in.
And once again, the same little girl is killing me:
