Princess Eugenie In Zac Posen – Wedding Reception

Princess Eugenie opted for a gown from an American house for her wedding reception after choosing Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos to work on her ceremony gown.

I have to say that her second dress, a custom Zac Posen gown in what appears to be a soft shade of blush, rather than bridal white, didn’t work for me.

From the comments I know a lot of you loved it, but for me it didn’t like anything from the waist up.

Put this on Cate Blanchett, Celine Dion, Julia Roberts or Kate Bosworth and I would’ve loved it, but the bodice didn’t work for me on Princess Eugenie.

Princess Eugenie of York Weds Jack Brooksbank In Peter Pilotto

Princess Eugenie of York Weds Jack Brooksbank In Peter Pilotto

Princess Eugenie of York married Jack Brooksbank at a ceremony today (October 12) in front of family and celebrities on a very windy day in Windsor, England.

The gown, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, was simple and elegant; notably, the princess chose not to have a veil, showing off the low back of the dress.

The low back of the dress was included in the design at the request of Princess Eugenie, who had surgery, aged 12, to correct scoliosis.

The condition causes the spine to bend to one side, and can make the back appear rounded and the shoulder blades more prominent.

Before the wedding, the princess told a journalist: “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.”

As someone who also has had a scar on her back from a child, I really commend her not hiding this part of her on her big day.

The fabric includes a number of symbols that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs.

A thistle representing Scotland acknowledges the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, and a shamrock representing Ireland is a nod to the Ferguson family.

The other symbols used including the York Rose – a nod to the princess’s family name of York – and ivy, which represents the couple’s home, Ivy Cottage, in Kensington Palace.

Princess Eugenie wore the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by the Queen, which made up of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pave set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side.

Her diamond and emerald drop ear-rings are a her wedding gift from the groom.

The wedding bouquet consists of lily of the valley, stephanotis pips, hints of baby blue thistles, white spray roses and trailing ivy.

It was created by floral designer Rob Van Helden’s sister, Patrice Van Helden Oakes.

The look was complete with Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Princess Beatrice In Jonathan Simkhai & Princess Eugenie In Erdem – Royal Ascot

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie both attended day 3 of the Royal Ascot – also known as Ascot Ladies Day — on Thursday (June 21) in England.

Princess Beatrice: It’s been a while since I really loved a look from the royal, and this monochromatic look Jonathan Simkhai is no different. The New York based fashion designer is known for his cutting edge designs, but this feels a bit frumpy on Beatrice. Out of the three who stuck to a simple black and white colour palette, only Ciara nailed her look. As you can see she gave her Pop & Suki box bag its third outing of the week.

Princess Eugenie: There was something a bit deja vu about this silk floral number from Erdem. As Erdem is Eugenie’s favourite designer, I guess her style is suddenly feeling all too familiar. The look was paired with a Sally-Ann Provan hat and studded shoes.

Princess Eugenie In Roland Mouret & Princess Beatrice In Mary Katrantzou – Serpentine Summer Party 2018

Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York attended the Serpentine Summer Party 2018 on Tuesday (June 19) in London, alongside Lady Kitty Spencer and Ciara.

Princess Eugenie: Joined by her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, the Princess wore a Roland Mouret asymmetrical top patterned with Japanese blooms that was simply styled with black trousers. If you’re having a case of deja vu, that’s because Yara Shahdi wore the same top recently.

Princess Beatrice: The royal looked fabulous wearing a beautiful dress from Mary Katrantzou’s Resort 2018 collection. I adore multi-coloured peacock-printed detail that was embossed on the super-shiny fabric of this flared design. When it came to the accessories, I loved the metallic silver sandals and smart black box bag engraved with ‘Be Nice Be Cool’, but the leather moto jacket felt a bit like she was trying a bit too hard.

Princess Beatrice In Roksanda & Princess Eugenie In Gainsbourg – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie joined other members of the royal family including Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle today (May 19) in Windsor, England.

Princes Beatrice: Opting for a bohemian sentiment, she wore a bespoke Roksanda Viola dress, Stephen Jones hat and Gianvito Rossi shoes and Roksanda ‘Besa’ bag. The rich petrol blue with clusters of embellishment created a striking finish with her ginger hair. I’m sure many will wonder whether this subdued headpiece is after the statement one she wore to Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding.

Princess Eugenie: The engaged royal was clad in a bespoke dress by Gainsbourg, hat by Fiona Graham, M2Malletier bag and Valentino shoes. It brought to mind outfits worn by Jacqueline Lee Kennedy Onassis. But, it is not in the realm of the former first lady’s wardrobe and I question whether it was entirely suitable.

Princess Beatrice In Suzannah & Princess Eugenie In Oscar de la Renta – Easter Service

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie were also at Easter service on Sunday (April 1) at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, England, joining Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Princess Beatrice: Dressed in Easter whites, she opted for a tailored Suzannah woven coat dress with girlish finishes in the nipped-in waist and buttons along with the flared cuffs. A Bottega Veneta clutch, hat, and Kurt Geiger nude pumps completed the ensemble.

Princess Eugenie: I am quite fond of the abstract fun of Oscar de la Renta paint-splattered, pouf dress, which was an artsy rush of energy on Easter morning. A Juliette Boterill Millinery hat reinforced the moments of fuchsia in the skirt.

Princess Eugenie Announces Engagement to Jack Brooksbank

So we now have two royal weddings in 2018, as Princess Eugenie of York and her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank are set to wed this autumn.

The pair will marry at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle – the same venue where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will say ‘I do’ on May 19.

Mr Brooksbank, a wine merchant, popped the question in Nicaragua earlier this month and the happy couple released their official engagement photos yesterday (January 22).

Eugenie, who is eighth in line to the throne, wore a floral embroidered cap sleeve dress by her go-to label, Erdem with black satin heels from Jimmy Choo.

She proudly showed off her engagement ring – a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds, which bears a resemblance to the one worn by her mother, Sarah Ferguson.

The question is who will design her gown?

There has been speculation that Meghan will wear Erdem because the actress and the designer share the Canadian/English connection, but I would imagine Princess Eugenie would want her favourite designer to create her dress.

It could be a very busy year for Erdem Moralıoğlu.

Princess Eugenie of York In Peter Pilotto – Chiltern Fire House

Princess Eugenie was spotted leaving the Chiltern Fire House on Saturday (November 25) in London.

I love how this Peter Pilotto Pre-Fall 2017 dress is printed with a vivid design in a handful of bright colours, and how the cold shoulder adds modern whimsy, making it easy to dress for day or night.

However, I can’t say I love this dress on the Princess, this is mostly because I adored the look the first time it was worn by Thandie Newton.

The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party

Rita Ora, Ellie Bamber and Stacy Martin weren’t the only ones at The Serpentine Galleries Summer Party in London on Wednesday (June 28). Here, a look at the other stars in attendance.

Gala Gordon: This whimsical white Chanel Fall 2016 frock wasn’t too innocent, as the edgy, black accents imbued the look with just enough rebel spirit. The dress could have used a less distracting bra.

Charli XCX: Also going the way of white, the entertainer was entirely lovely in a Stella McCartney Fall 2017 top and lace skirt that I was head over heels for. Structured, chic, and sweet—and not over-styled.

Adwoa Aboah: While this Chanel pastel-beaded, sheer gown may have appeared to have all the qualities of standard prettiness, she added a layer of quirk appeal to its romantic side with the furry Chanel purse and white athletic shoes. Say what you will about the unexpected sneakers, but it was the necklace that I found so unnecessary with the already robust embellishment.

Princess Beatrice & Princess Eugenie of York at Ascot 2017

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie of York have been out and about at the Royal Ascot 2017 in Ascot, England.

Princess Beatrice: On Day 1 (June 20), Princess Beatrice’s interpretation of formal daywear had her channeling a garden spirit in this miniature-floral-bedecked Claire Mischevani cream dress styled with a Valentino clutch, Stuart Weitzman ‘Capsize’ shoes, and a Goldust Millinery bloom-topped hat to match. I have a feeling some might find this a bit too precious.

Princess Eugenie: Princess Eugenie was the yang to Beatrice’s yin in a black, polka-dot dress worn with Reiss ‘Ellen’ heels and a bespoke Ethan K clutch. The accent colours of her hat added a brighter note to the look.

V&A Summer Party

A whole host of stars attended the V&A summer party on Wednesday (June 21) in London,

Princess Beatrice of York: Deciding to go darker than most in attendance, Princess Beatrice opted for a Self-Portrait ruffled guipure lace midi dress. The tiered sheer dress may have been the perfect antidote to the heat but her Jimmy Choo pumps really weighed down the look.

Sai Bennett: This Temperley London Fall 2017 dress was utterly appropriate for the event, I especially love the front slit and gorgeous floral print which feels particularly summery. Some simple gold accessories and brown wedges tied this look together perfectly.

Donna Air: This lightweight Three Floor tiered lace dress looked incredibly feminine and pretty. The high-neck ruffles worked well with Donna’s swept back hair and round frame sunglasses. The silhouette is also incredibly flattering, with just the right amount of breathable cut-outs.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Wedding

The Cannes Film Festival may be in full swing, but the other major event of the weekend was the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews on Saturday (May 20) at St. Mark’s Church in England.

I was awestruck by the classic beauty of Pippa’s bespoke Giles Deacon lace gown that featured a heart-shaped cutout at the back. It was enduringly romantic, sophisticatedly feminine and forever timeless—everything you’d hope a wedding dress could be.

Her fine tulle veil, with its dégradé of embroidered pearls, was made by renowned milliner Stephen Jones, and it brought a delicate, whisper-light addition to the gown.

A Maidenhair Fern tiara and matching headpiece by Robinson Pelham, along with custom-made Robinson Pelham earrings and custom Manolo Blahnik ‘Seneca’ pumps completed the graceful, fairytale look.

Of course, we cannot forget the bride’s bouquet which included astilbe, sweet pea, peony, freesia and waxflower, as the lushly simple array of white blooms couldn’t have been more suiting.
