Royal Wedding Page 2
The Royal Wedding of the year this was not. Prince Albert of Monaco and longtime girlfriend Charlene Wittstock became man and wife in a low-key civil ceremony today.
The second most important royal wedding of the year is taking place this Saturday and you should expect to see just as many famous faces as there were at Will and Kate’s nuptuals. CBS reports that the invite list for the marriage of Albert of Monnaco and Charlene Wittstock has been leaked and there are quite a few celebs who will be attending the ceremony.
Why yes, James Middleton is a tan little cloud of adorable British man, but does that make him a style icon? Women’s Wear Daily seems to think so. In the new issue of Menswear, a supplement to the trade newspaper, the Duchess of Cambridge‘s younger brother is touted as a possible new face for British men’s fashion campaigns.
Hold on to your fascinators! The dress that launched a million tweets is finally going on public display, and in a few weeks, anyone who’s in London will be able to get an up-close-and-personal look at Princess Catherine’s gorgeous Alexander McQueen wedding duds.
We’ve known for a while now that the Royal Couple‘s first offcial trip would be to Canada (with a short stopover in Los Angeles!) but now we know, to the day, where they’ll be and when they’ll be there.
Kate and Prince William are back from their royal honeymoon on North Island in the Seychelles! And they had a really great time!
The royal newlyweds are currently enjoying their African honeymoon on North Island in the Seychelles, and it’s costing the pair quite a pretty penny.
Remember (as if you could forget) that hat Princess Beatrice wore to the royal wedding? The one that got compared to everything from Fallopian tubes to the flying spaghetti monster and now has its own Facebook page and Tumblr? Some called it the most fascinating fascinator at Westminster Abbey, and others said it was an affront to everything that is good and right with millinery. But we hardly think anyone would object to the hat’s next outing, an auction to benefit needy kids all over the world.
While Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie may have made a splash at the royal wedding with their Phillip Treacy toppers, their mother Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, made an even bigger one by not being invited. And now she’s opened up to Oprah (as most of O’s guests are wont to do) by revealing that she watched the extravaganza from a jungle in Thailand and comparing herself (and her situation) to the late Princess Diana.
We, like almost everyone else in the world, loved Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding dress. It was elegant and beautiful and timeless. And no, it was not copied from an off-the-rack Kleinfeld‘s gown purchased in Brooklyn in 1991.
And so it begins: the royal couple have left on their two-week honeymoon! We must applaud Kate and Prince William for their well-orchestrated fake-out. The day after the royal wedding, it was announced that the pair would be postponing their honeymoon (though they would be spending the rest of the weekend on a mini-holiday somewhere in Britain) and that Will would be returning to work the following week.
Pippa Middleton was undeniably the royal wedding‘s breakout star. People freaked out about what she wore — and how great she looked in that ivory McQueen bridesmaid’s dress — and then freaked out some more when a “scandalous” picture of her was released. James, the other Middleton sibling, also made a splash with some candid shots of his own. Of course, now both of them are being offered roles in a porn flick.
With all of the royal wedding hullabaloo finally winding down, you know everyone will be freaking out about pregnancy rumors in a matter of months. It’s our (totally unfounded) opinion that Kate and Prince William will wait a few years to start popping out heirs, but they have recently become parents. A baby Humbolt penguin named Acorn can officially call the couple mum and pop.
British milliner Phillip Treacy, who created the hat Princess Beatrice of York wore to the Royal Wedding, is standing by his work even in the face of countless comments (and Internet jokes!) that that hat was just not cool.
Talk about a good week at work! After it was revealed that Sarah Burton had designed The Dress To End All Dresses (the one Kate Middleton wore to marry Prince William), the designer was the center of attention at the Costume Institute’s gala for her former boss, the late Alexander McQueen. She was also the center of attention at a meet-and-greet at Saks Fifth Avenue, where she called her work with the new duchess a “50-50 collaboration.”
Did Pippa Middleton‘s maid of honor dress look familiar to you? Well, it should have if you paid attention to the red carpet at the 2010 Golden Globes.
Let’s face it — the Royal Wedding did actually do a lot for the world. Prince William and Duchess Catherine got some of the world’s richest people to donate to charities instead of giving them gifts, lots and lots of tourist money poured into London and the surrounding areas, and overnight, one of the world’s most celebrated fashion houses turned into a household name.
