Alexander McQueen Reinvents Royal Bridesmaid Dress
The dress that Pippa Middleton wore to the royal wedding is now on sale… almost.
Kate Middleton’s wedding back in 2011 caused a replica-storm to hit the market shortly after, but not many were able to match up to the dressmaking abilities of Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, with its intricate lace and elaborate embroidery. Still, for those still having the white dreams of that day running through your head, you can get the next best thing – a reinterpretation of Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress on sale for $1,539. Well… it’s close enough.
The key difference between the new dress and Middleton’s are mainly in the lack of lace, the lack of a cowl scoop at the neckline, shorter sleeves, and no row of buttons down the back. Still, it’s the thought that counts – after all the dress made for the wedding was entirely custom created, attuned specifically to Pippa’s body.
So, for those who want to know what it feels like to be fabulous in white, you can check out the dress over at fashion retailer site Forward by Elsie Walker, where it’s been marked down by 40%.
