And second, I don’t think there was any upstaging Kate Middleton. Yes, Pippa’s dress was long and white. But Kate’s was long and white and poufy and had an 8-foot train.
And even if half the world thought Pippa’s look was a little too flashy, clearly it was approved by the bride. Kate and Pippa’s dresses were both designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, so they were literally made to coordinate. And you know damn well Kate knew EXACTLY what her kid sister would be wearing on her wedding day! It’s not like there was a, “Oh crap! Pippa! YOU’RE wearing white? I was going to wear white!” moment in the royal bridal suite.
Sure, I would have been pissed if a guest wore Pippa’s dress to my wedding, but the royal wedding wasn’t your garden variety wedding, right?
I’ve said before that I don’t think it’s possible to upstage the bride. And I don’t think the royal wedding was any exception. Let’s leave poor Pippa alone, people!
Did you think Pippa’s look was too showy for a bridesmaid? Or were you 100 percent on board with it?
