Royal wedding hits and misses From julia gillard's david jones fascinator to the motherofthebride's decision to wear one of lady diana's favourite designers, the wedding party and the hundreds of wellheeled guests turned out in immaculately tailored suits, dresses and the customary military dress. And leading the parade was the queen decked out in a pale yellow gown by her official designer angela kelly who is understood to have prepared two dresses for the big day. Middleton's mother, meanwhile, provided fans of the late lady diana with reason to smile when she opted for a skyblue wool crepe coat dress over a sky blue silk shantung dress designed by catherine walker a favourite of diana's while her hat was by jane corbett who is based chrioutinchaussurespascher in the berkshire, where the middletons live. Outside of the wedding party and with the freedom to take some risks, the invited guests at westminster abbey provided some classic spring looks interspersed with some fashionforward choices none more so than victoria beckham who bucked the trend of bold primary colours and pastels with a stunning navy dress from her own collection topped with a philip treacy headpiece. The eightmonths pregnant former spice girl, who wore sixinch christian louboutin stilletoes, was accompanied by her dashing beau david who, surprisingly, shunned an english tailor in favour of a ralph lauren bespoke suit finished with his obe medal which royal correspondents were quick to point out was incorrectly pinned on his right side(It should be worn on the left, apparently). Prince harry's onagain, offagain girlfriend(And, if the english press is to be believed the next royal bride), Chelsy Davy arrived at the Abbey in an aqua green Alberta Ferretti skirt and offtheshoulder jacket with a bow at the back.Her taupe lace hat was made for her by milliner victoria grant. Plonked on the fashion 'miss' list were princesses beatrice and eugenie who both chose philip treacy toppers to accessorise their outfits. While eugenie's nude dress and jacket(By vivienne westwood)Were given a 'pass', beatrice's garish turquoise gown by valentino received a resounding 'fail' from fashion critics. 'Safe' too was a word used to describe Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's choice of a champagnecoloured gown by Anna Valentine while, in a nice compliment to our Aussie Prime Minister, Julia Gillard received a big thumbs up from the fashion litterati for her David Jones fascinator which she wore with an Anthea Crawford frock. Always one to fulfil her sartorial obligations with ease, governorgeneral quentin bryce cut an elegant figure in a hot pink, red and orange silk brocade two piece suit by christian louboutin france brisbane designer pia du pradal. Completing her outfit was a hot pink patent clutch, matching pink patent stilettoes and a straw hat decorated with gold, pink and red flowers.
