Royal fever withdrawls

I cannot believe I have not posted anything on the Royal Wedding! With so much hype, rumour and speculation about who would design Kate Middleton's dress, the beautiful bride, to some critics surprise, chose to walk down the aisle in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen creation.

Catherine Middleton or should I say the Duchess of Cambridge, looked exquisite in her gown, which had a similar lace sweetheart neckline to that adorned by Princess Grace of Monaco on her wedding day.

There was however another Middleton turning heads on the big day  namely Pippa Middleton, sister of Catherine and Maid of Honour, whose  profile has literally skyrocketed since wearing that dress. It is incredible how one dress can generate such a buzz but as was the case with Elizabeth Hurley in her infamous Versace safety pin dress, Pippa is no exception! Pippa is set to become a style icon with rumours circulating that she has been inundated with offers of  fashion photoshoots already. She has even been dubbed 'Your Royal Hotness' by the media.

Pippa's ivory Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress with its simple cowl neck and fitted silhouette complimented Catherine's dress beautifully. 

With the wedding over, it remains to be seen how the Duchess of Cambridge's style will evolve with that of her new Royal Title but one things for sure, all eyes will be on her from now.

As I struggle with post Royal Fever,  I will no doubt continue to watch re runs of Will and Kate- The Road to Romance (cringe), re-watch their wedding on sky plus and buy just about every copy of Hello or Grazia I can get my hands on!
