Pippa Middleton has become quite the hot topic since taking centre stage as her elder sister’s maid of honour at the momentous royal wedding last friday, and it seems she’s bagged herself a firm A-list designer fan in the process.
After wearing a green floor-length dress by Alice Temperley to the royal wedding reception on Friday night, Pippa has cemented her new found love affair with the great British designer, and in return, earnt the respect and admiration of this hugely iconic name in fashion.
“I was honoured that Ms Pippa Middleton asked us to design her dress for the royal wedding evening reception,” said Temperley. “Pippa is a beautiful young woman and a delight to work with. She looked incredible and the green colour looks great on her skin tone.”
And, much like her sister Kate, Pippa was keen to be involved in the making and designing of her exclusive dress for the big day.
“Pippa came into our store in Colville Mews and she fell in love with the Long Arabia dress – we chose a new colour and reworked it with the lovely new back – incorporating new artwork panels with crystals, gold and silver details,” Temperley told Vogue UK. “We had about four fittings in our private bridal suite in the Mews. We decided on the colour and artwork panels together.”
To be a princess’s sister, eh?
