The Esme bridal gown [Jenny Packham]
Congrats are in order for Jenny Packham who has been crowned 'most-pinned designer of 2013'. Hurrah! It's all thanks to the Esme gown from the Brit designer's Spring Summer 2013 Bridal collection - a gorgeously feminine creation with a figure-hugging silhouette, sparkling embellishments on the neckline and a nipped-in waist. Yes please.
Pinterest has revealed this was THE most-pinned image in the UK. Phewf! It comes as no surprise considering the social media platform is hugely popular for brides-to-be looking for inspiration, not to mention an abundance of fashion bunnies. Jenny Packham has also bagged more than a few A-list fans from Angelina Jolie to Christina Hendricks, who sat FROW at her show during New York Fashion Week in September.

But there's one lady who packs a fabulously royal punch for JP: Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge famously wore a Packham frock when she emerged from hospital carrying her new-born son in July, but it's when Kate wants a bit of glitz that the designer has served her best. Lest we forget the emerald green stunner she chose for the 'Our Greatest Team Rises' concert last May featuring a lace bodice embellished with Swarovski crystals [above left]. And perhaps our favourite Middy moment EVER was when she stepped out in a bedazzling pearlescent dress at the ARK Gala [above right]. Hmm, did someone say Kate Effect?
Jenny Packham is set to launch her own Pinterest board in 2014 so stay tuned for more pinnable creations. While we wait, swoon over the Spring Summer 2014 collection in the gallery below...
