We have to admit Kate and Prince William were super cool about letting us obsess about the royal wedding. Photographers and videographers were granted some pretty sick access during the ceremony, but we wanted to see the party! Queen Elizabeth‘s reception sounded nice and all (that cake!), but the evening reception thrown by Prince Charles sounded amazing. As such, we’ve rounded up every bit of info we could about the Buckingham Palace affair.
Okay, we’re not totally going to give up on the royal wedding (it was so awesome!), but we are gearing up for Monday’s Met Ball. Today’s StyleDish gives us some details on the sure-to-be fabulous event, as well as muses on eyeshadow as hair coloring tool. Also, more PIPPA.
Rachel Zoe gave birth just one month ago, and she’s already back at her pre-baby (read: super tiny) size. Is it the result of a restricted diet and tons of exercise? Nope, at least not according to Zoe.
So, everyone is freaking out about Kate‘s younger sister Pippa Middleton. She’s pretty and has a bangin’ bod and was great with the kids during the ceremony. She even seemed a bit — dare we say — flirtatious with that other royal wedding sibling, Prince Harry. She has suddenly become a very big deal! Some people are even calling her the most eligible girl in all of Britain.
Important breaking news: Kate and Prince William have postponed their honeymoon, since Will has to return to work after the weekend. Royals…they’re just like us!
Clarence House has just released the official royal wedding pictures, and we have them right here!
Just in case you missed the Royal Wedding — seriously, though, you would have had to have been six feet under on Jupiter to have missed the Royal Wedding — here are a few things to get you back in the loop. StyleDish is served! Bon Appetit!
We knew Kate would wear two different dresses, and now the second one has been revealed! Just like her stunning bridal gown, Kate’s evening ensemble was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
There are hats, and then there are hats, and the ones atop the heads of the attendees of today’s Royal Wedding were most certainly wearing the latter. From chic chapeaus that perfectly complemented the dresses they were paired with to absurdly curly, feathery creations that looked more like they wanted to bite you than to stay on top of a princess’s head, the hats on display this morning were so stunning (and so frightening) that we haven’t been able to compose ourselves well enough to put them in a post. Until now! Herein, the greatest moments in millinery from the wedding of Duchess Catherine and Prince William.
The cake served at the royal wedding reception this afternoon at Buckingham Palace was even fancier than we had imagined! The impressive creation took five weeks to make, fed 600 people, and had eight tiers and 900 icing flowers. Whew!
Remember “Take Your Daughter to Work Day”? Well, now it’s “Take Your Daughter and Son to Work Day”, and First Lady Michelle Obama got in on the action, chatting up a group of White House kids during yesterday’s festivities. As always, she had some pragmatic words about style.
One of the members of the team of priests who attended this morning’s Royal Wedding may have caught a few whiffs of the Holy Spirit before the ceremony went down. The Daily Telegraph‘s cameras caught an unidentified man of the cloth literally doing cartwheels down the aisle at Westminster Abbey before any of the wedding guests started arriving.
We’re really just fueling the royal wedding fire now, but whatever. We know what nail polish Kate wore on her special day. Do you?
At 6 a.m. eastern standard time this morning, Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside of Westminster Abbey in a custom white silk dress with lace sleeves and a handmade, eight-foot long train, and the international fashion industry breathed a collective sigh of relief. The dress was by designer Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, a long rumored frontrunner and certainly a favorite for the role — but how much of Kate’s choice was actually left to chance?

The charm of the Royal Wedding seems to have worn off pretty quick for one of its adorable bridesmaids, 3-year-old Grace van Cutsem.
We were super disappointed to learn that Anglican wedding ceremonies don’t involve a “you may now kiss the bride” moment, but we were relieved when we found out Prince William would kiss Kate on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. And he did! Twice! Could this be more of a fairytale?
So when Lady Gaga went on Ellen the other day to talk about things like surrealist moles and being a godmother, she also did her first live performance of her new single, Judas. If you haven’t heard it, it’s an infectious song about religion and being in love and dancing, and Gaga’s performance was OK. Or maybe it was great — we couldn’t tell, because all we could think throughout the entire ordeal was, “She’s wearing the same thing Beyonce wore in the video for Bootylicious.”
If, for some reason, you decided to sleep in this morning and haven’t yet been inundated by every single networks’ back to back coverage of the royal wedding, we’ve got full video of the ceremony and a start-to-finish gallery. Don’t worry, it’s almost all over.
