best dressed at the royal wedding

Of course, the best dressed at the wedding was the bride, the gorgeous Duchess of Cambridge (formerly known as Kate Middleton) in her Alexander McQueen gown.

But what about the guests?

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson wore one of the more memorable outfits – head to toe royal blue (including gloves, shoes and hat!)

Prime Minister David Cameron’s wife, Samantha, went against tradition and didn’t wear a hat, though her teal Burberry dress sold out on Net-A-Porter within minutes of her arrival at Westminster Abbey.

Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, also opted for teal. Her dress was designed by Alberta Ferretti and topped with a matching silk faille jacket.

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice wore crazy hats and edgy outfits, with Eugenie opting for dusky pink Valentino and Beatrice wearing peacock Vivienne Westwood.

I adored mother-of-the-bride Carole Middleton’s pale blue dress and coat by Catherine Walker (incidentally, one of Princess Diana’s favourite designers) with her matching Jane Corbett hat.

However my choice for best dressed was mother-to-be Victoria Beckham (pictured). She wore a navy dress from her own collection (although slightly adjusted to accommodate her bump) with platform Christian Louboutin heels. Her hair was slicked back in a sleek ponytail and topped with a stunning hat by Philip Treacy. Her husband, David Beckham, didn’t scrub up too badly either in his Ralph Lauren Purple Label morning suit.

Who do you think was the best dressed guest?

  • Ooh, Tara Palmer – I don’t know, she reminds me of a royally large chess piece in her ensemble. From the smattering of pics I’ve seen from other blogs this morning, I’d have to agree with you – Victoria Beckham is London-fab, but still classic and demure. No point trying to upstage the world’s most famous bride!

  • how can, in 1.900 people in that abbey, the sites only shows the same 6 or 8 people???

    I can not get that !!!! Be creative !!!!!

    Where weas the rest 1.894 people that was there.?????

    There was no one to be shown???

    • @Ana Cristina – good question! I think sites are showing the same few people because most of the wedding guests were actually personally invited by the couple and therefore are not necessarily well-known by the public (take the Duke’s air force colleagues or the Duchess’ butcher from her hometown, for example).

      There were also a few people I think would’ve been very well dressed (for example, the always stylish Governor-General of Australia Quentin Bryce) but it was very hard to track down photos of them. And of course, a lot of the guests were men and most of them were wearing morning suits which, although very dapper, look very similar to one another. Hope that clears it up a bit for you!

  • I thought VB looked exceptionally elegant but even though it’s her signature colour, i think she looked a bit too much like she was going to a funeral and not a wedging… a smile might have lightened the outfit, but i don’t think i saw her wear one of those at all!


    • @Chrissy London – yes, I don’t think VB got the “you’re never fully dressed without a smile” memo. It was a wedding after all!
