Royal Wedding Page 1
Earlier this month we were professing our style envy for Tatiana Santo Domingo with news of her soon-to-come royal wedding, and this weekend the 29-year-old wed her longtime beau Andrea Casiraghi at a private ceremony on the grounds of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco. The bohemian bride looked blithely elegant in a white Missoni dress, along with a delicate flower crown. Mother of the groom, Princess Caroline, wore a red gown designed by Karl Lagerfeld, while the bridesmaids appear to have worn Dolce & Gabbana.
We love royal weddings. Everything about ‘em. The dresses, the guests, the glamour. And we especially love it when our favorite royals come out looking oh-so-fabulous.
When you’re royalty, there’s only one way to attend another royal wedding: in a stunning floor-length gown.
This one, admittedly, was a slight change from the ornate, eight-tiered, ivory version that he tasted at his nuptials last year. But we’re sure he enjoyed it nonetheless.
Wikipedia isn’t exactly a fountain of fashion knowledge, but wouldn’t you think something so iconic as the Duchess of Cambridge‘s wedding dress would deserve its own entry? We certainly think so, considering how much we wrote about it ourselves.
It has been a whole 365 days since that monumental, Alexander McQueen-clad morning at Westminster Abbey and we, for one, are quite pleased this year’s celebrations don’t have to involve 5AM nuptial viewing. Let’s reminisce, shall we?
Help us decide whether this is cute or creepy. Mattel, the company that makes Barbies, is making a limited edition of dolls that look like Kate Middleton and Prince William to celebrate the couple’s first wedding anniversary.
Clothes are great, but what’s even greater is when they’re worn for a great occasion or to make a statement. So most of this year’s top fashion moments weren’t just great outfits — they were great events. Whether the garments and accessories (and the people who wore them) included on this list broke records, became cultural institutions or inspired great art, they all looked damn good doing it.
We’ve been wondering for quite some time (or, you know, since April) just exactly how Sarah Burton kept her royal wedding dress duties a secret. We would want to tell everybody! Alas, the Alexander McQueen creative director has a bit more restraint than we do.
Because Halloween just wouldn’t be complete without a royal wedding reference, there is now a Kate Middleton costume for your dog.
Queen Jetsun of Bhutan has been up to ever since she married King Jigme a last week. And so were we, until she posted photos of what she’s been up to today.
They might not have gotten married with two billion people watching, but King Jigme of Bhutan and newly crowned Queen Jetsun could have easily given this year’s other royal weddings a serious run for their money.
It’s the end of September, which means if you’re a person who actually plans things, you should have started your hunt for the perfect Halloween costume about a week ago. And while you’re sifting through mounds and mounds of top hats and Cleopatra headdresses, we think you should consider the one hat to rule them all: Princess Beatrice of York‘s royal wedding hat.
The royal wedding dress exhibit at Buckingham Palace is proving to be just as popular as expected. Over 354,000 people have visited since the dress went on display July 23rd! We guess most people don’t share the Queen’s belief that the whole thing is horrid and creepy?
You guys, Tom Ford is 50-year-old fashion genius. At this point, age and prestige have all but just handed the man the undeniable right to spout wise on just about anything he wants, and that includes stories we thought were over months ago. Case in point: the man still has thoughts on that much-maligned Philip Treacy fascinator that Princess Beatrice of York wore to the Royal Wedding.
This year has seen two royal weddings, both with brides named Kate. (Sorry, Kim.) And because everyone had/has/will continue to have thoughts on both of the British nuptials, let’s hear what master cobbler Manolo Blahnik has to say about Kates Middleton and Moss.
Back in May, British glossy-cum-tabloid magazine Grazia swore they never digitally altered the image of Kate Middleton they used on their Royal Wedding cover. In fact, they specifically told our friends over at The Huffington Post, “Grazia did not make any changes to the image of the Duchess of Cambridge to make her look or appear slimmer than she is.” Too bad the British Press Complaints Commission just made them eat a whole lot of crow.
Another day, another royal wedding. Okay, maybe these awesome events aren’t exactly daily occurrences, but we’re still coming off the high from that last one. Today Zara Phillips, daughter to Prince Anne and first cousin to Prince William, married her longtime boyfriend Mike Tindall.
Royal wedding bells just haven’t stopped ringing since Will and Kate said ‘I do’. Queen Elizabeth’s eldest grandaughter, Zara Phillips is the next in line. She’ll wed her rugby star fiance, Mike Tindall this saturday, and we have all the pre-wedding details for you.
