YOU, The Fashion Jury: Rate The Royal Wedding Outfits!

29 April 2011

Calling all Fashion Jurors: Grazia needs your thoughts on the Royal Wedding outfits! Get commenting below, and remember, your verdict could appear in next week's issue!

First for your consideration is Princess Catherine's chief bridesmaid, Pippa Middleton. Like her big sis, Pippa opted for an Alexander McQueen dress, designed and created by Sarah Burton. The ivory satin-based crepe gown with a cowl front has the same button detail and lace trims as the bride’s beautiful dress, but does it get your approval?

Catherine and Pippa's mother, Carole Middleton impressed us with this sky blue Catherine Walker ensemble, but were you expecting more from the Mother of the Bride? Under that wool crepe coatdress, her dress featured pleated sleeves and pockets as well as braided trimming at the waist. As for the headgear, it comes courtesy of Berkshire-based designer Jane Corbett.

Bringing a splash of colour to the proceedings, it's HRH The Queen in a delightfully spring-appropriate primrose yellow outfit. Designed by Angela Kelly, the crepe wool dress had hand-sewn beading at the neck in the shape of sunrays. Over this, she wore a matching tailored coat. So are you rating or hating?

Next up, we bring you Camilla - aka: Duchess of Cornwall - wearing a Anna Valentine creation. Of course, Valentine was the lady who designed Camilla's wedding dress when she married Prince Charles back in 2005, remember? We're loving that she mixed it up with those Jimmy Choo heels - are you?

And we can't forget Wills - or should that be the Duke of Cambridge? He had us melting with this Prince Charming act and that bright red get-up certainly helped, dontcha think? The Colonel of the Irish Guards uniform with a sash and gold sword slings was fitted by Kashket and Partners and teamed with a Forage Cap.

So what are your thoughts, readers? Love or hate, we want to hear it so let loose in the box below...
