Royal wedding fashion - outfit hits and misses including Kate Middleton's wedding dress, obvs!

Everyone's going to be giving their opinions on the outfits of the day, so why not share my thoughts too?!

First up, the misses!

I thought Tara Palmer Tomkinson had a horn on her head when I first saw her arriving and then at full length I realised no I was mistaken, she'd actually come as a thunderbird.  Fail!


Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.  

Eugenie's dress is fairly unflattering and an odd choice.  I don't think it goes with her extreme hat either, on the plus side her shoes are quiet nice!

I don't know where to begin with Beatrice, she's literally wearing antlers on her face - that's right not her head, her face.  Her outfit really ages her I think as do the shoes which look far to old for her.  She also forgot the less is more rule teaming some heavy smoky eyes with her face antlers.  Massive fail for me, sorry!

Come on you're princesses, sort it out!  


I saw a beautiful blonde girl in the abbey wearing a caramel colour and I thought she was Chelsey, but no, this is what Chelsey turned up in.  Did she run out of time to do her hair?  The outfit doesn't suit her shape either, she's got some one boob going on there.  Oh dear.  The shoes and bag are nice enough, not sure what the hat is supposed to be matching.


Not feeling this look on Camilla at all.  I love big hats, but it's the dress coat I don't like.  Dip dye?  Drop waist?  Embroidery?  Euurgh.  I found it really odd that she and Carole Middleton went for such a similar colour, Carole was the clear winner.


No this isn't a burlesque act arriving for the evening entertainment, it's Nick Clegg's wife Miriam Gonzalez.  What on earth was she thinking?  The hat and shows with a different outfit would have been nice, but together it all looks too sex show for me, especially the black leather gloves!


Onto my fashion winners...

Carole Middleton looked fabulous didn't she? A perfect colour and it fits her so well.  All of those Middleton ladies have fabulous figures!  Nice hat, flattering length and good shoes, ten out of ten Mama Middleton!


Considering Joss Stone's rather questionable fashion choices in the past, I thought she looked really good.  The outfit completely suited the occasion but I don't think she'd dressed too old for her age either.  I love the colour and a great hat too.  Lilly Allen must be seething! 


Continuing the peach / coral theme was Princess Victoria of Sweden, simple but very elegant and great matching shoes.


I hated reading all the bitchy tweets about Victoria Beckham.  I love Vicky B and think she's fab and this outfit certainly didn't disappoint me.  She looks better pregnant than most of us could hope for on our skinniest of days! Apparently it's one of her own designs from her autumn collection, modified for her bump!

David Beckham of course was looking hot as expected too =)


In contrast to Nick Clegg's wife, David Cameron's Sam Cam was looking fresh and fab in turquoise.


Initially the Queen's outfit reminded me of custard, but she supposedly wears bright colours so that the crowds can see her!  She looks very good for her age actually.  Shame she was clashing with the Dean of Westminster!


I couldn't leave this post without the best bits now could I..... the bride and bridesmaids!

Just wow, look at that wedding dress!  I don't quite understand how it's vintage Alexander McQueen, as it's certainly not second hand, but it's certainly fabulous!  Obviously Sarah Burton's creation is going to spark thousands of copies, but I hope also it will bring about a revival of wedding dresses with sleeves - some brides have wiggly bingo wings don't you know!


Pippa / Phillippa Middleton also looked amazing - quite an achievement next to her stunning sister Kate Middleton. Her Temperley dress was gorgeous, and to pull off that look from the back with her bum still looking so small!  I'm so jel!  


The cutest little bridesmaids and page boys


Just married, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge



She did her own make-up and it looked beautiful and went well with her elegant hair.  Some people have been tweeting that her eyeliner looked bad but I disagree - she always wears black eyeliner.  You don't want to look like a different person on your wedding day, you should look like yourself but your best most polished version and I think she did.

Such an amazing dress, well worth the wait!  And now she's a princess!  Go Kate!


And finally, the long awaited balcony kiss! Awww

  3. Samantha Cameron is looking classy as always - so glad you included her in this because I missed her on the coverage :(
    I actually thought Camilla looked great. Underneath that coat was a fabulous dress which looked great with her hat and pearl necklace I thought? She definitely should have ditched that coat though!

  4. Diana and Lydia, thanks for commenting. I didn't see her dress Lydia, I'll google it and have a look. I may have mis-judged her!

    @anon - you're entitled to your opinion, but I think most of the planet would disagree with you today!
