Pippa Middleton Gets Married

She became world famous at her big sister’s wedding, but today Pippa Middleton showed that she could be an incredibly beautiful bride in her own right when she married James Matthews in a lovely ceremony in St Mark’s Church in Englefield.

Wearing a stunning lace gown, which reputedly cost £40,000 and was designed by Giles Deacon, Pippa looked radiant, and, in a reverse of the royal wedding, she was looked after by big sister Kate, who shepherded the little bridesmaids and paige boys, which included Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Pippa rose to prominence as the perfect maid of honour at the royal wedding of William and Kate, and has proved to be something of a style icon since, always managing to look chic at a range of occasions.  Her wedding dress was beautiful and elegant, with a full skirt, high neckline and lattice style lace work.  Her chic updo also added to the effortless beauty of the whole look.

Here are some images from a very stylish country wedding.


Pippa and Kate end 2011 in Style.

Those lovely Middleton ladies ended the year on a style high, showing that the cold weather is no excuse to let up on the fashion front. A new picture of Kate showed her looking dressed down in a stylish shearling style jacket from LK Bennett along with a pair of Wellington boots that matched those worn by her brother-in-law Prince Harry. The jacket, the Darwin, is now sold out completely online, in both expresso brown and black shades.

Kate was also wearing her much loved Temperley honeycomb jumper, and a rather stylish jaunty hat. You can  steal Kate’s hat style for just £4 with this cute wool felt trilby from New Look.

For Kate fans still in need of a great winter coat, the gorgeous Ami red number that she wore when she visited Denmark has now been reduced in the January sales (now £245). This is a seriously chic full length coat that has a classic style meaning years of wear.  Remember, the darker the day, the brighter the coat needed!

Pippa has shown a fabulous array of ‘Autumn/winter looks through the season so far.  Just before Christmas she was photographed wearing a utility/duffle style coat from Fay. This moss green coat with buckle style fastenings doesn’t  come cheap (£859),but it is an investment piece that looks great with both jeans, or over a shift dress.However, you can get a similar look from New Look for just £12.

I totally adore Pippa’s Loewe Amazona bag, a real classic from the Spanish luxury brand, but I think I prefer this stunning shade with a touch of red. This is a tru statement piece, but at £1,295, a girl can only dream…

My favourite Pippa look of recent times is one that comes right from the High Street. The Reiss Eden charcoal belted trenchcoat has all the traditions of a classic Burberry trench, but in a glorious silvery shade. You can get it now in the sale for £171.

I am so looking forward to seeing what looks both ladies present us with this New Year.

Pippa Middleton Shows of her Autumn Style – get the Look for Less.

The temperatures have dipped and now Pippa Middleton is showing us how to get an Autumn look that keeps you  snug without compromising on style. Bright coloured coats, animal print scarves and black basics are a simple, yet effective look which are proving that Pippa has a cold weather style almost as smoking hot as her summer looks.

I love the Sara Berman Yvette coat that Pippa is wearing below.It has a 1950s teddy boy feel that lends itself to this season’s androgynous look. The coat is available from my-wardrobe.com for £396.  Like sister Kate, Pippa is showing support for the ethical label Beulah London, wearing the Shibani scarf from the label that aims to help the victims of sex trafficking. This costs £80, but you can find cheaper alternatives on the high street and web.

Pippa is clearly a believer that duller days don’t have to mean muted shades. She had sported this fabulous coat from Zara  last week in a glorious shade of burnt  orange. It looked amazing when teamed with the Panthera black and white  scarf by Alice by Temperley. This coat is almost a pea coat style, and is perfect for petite girls, or  those who hate full length coats. The coat is currently available on the Zara website for £79.99, and the scarf is £54.99.
