Pippa Middleton wedding dress

This Saturday, May 20 will be the wedding of Pippa Middleton and the former racing driver turned millionaire trader, James Matthews. The bride’s dress and the name of its creator are at the heart of speculation.

In 2011, helping her big sister enter Westminster Abbey for her wedding to Prince William, Pippa Middleton stood out for her slender figure, highlighted in a bridesmaid dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Since then, if the slightest appearance of Kate Middleton gives rise to stockouts at Erdem or Marchesa, the style of her younger sister is also closely scrutinized.

Five years later, on May 20, it was Pippa Middleton’s turn to unite with James Matthews, a former racing driver who became a millionaire trader. The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, their children George and Charlotte, as well as Prince Harry and his companion, actress Meghan Markle, are expected among the guests who will attend the ceremony held in the family village of the Middleton family in Berkshire.

The details of the preparations for this union intrigue more than one, as evidenced by the debate around the regime imposed by the future bride. Likewise, rumors are rife about the stylist who will dress her up.

A wedding dress like that of her big sister?

Printed dresses fitted at the waist, coats with classic cuts, simple and refined accessories: Pippa Middleton’s style is not so far removed from that of her famous sister.

We can therefore imagine a wedding dress rather traditional, with a sophisticated cut highlighting its waist, subtly accessorized with refined details such as lace inserts. A creation finally in the same spirit as the famous Alexander McQueen dress created to measure for Kate Middleton in 2011.

It is still difficult to imagine Pippa Middleton using the same designer as for the cult wedding of her big sister, the name of Sarah Burton is now inseparable from that of the Duchess of Cambridge. To stand out from the princely marriage, other names are therefore possible.

Victoria Beckham among potential stylists?

Adept of British know-how, the future bride would have received the creator Giles Deacon and his assistant, with large covers, in the family home last November. Such a choice would be surprising, the stylist being best known for his theatrical creations, with a Gothic spirit.

We also think of Victoria Beckham, another British designer, with elegant and refined creations. The former Spice Girl has already proven her talent for wedding dresses by dressing her friend Eva Longoria during her wedding to José Baston in 2016.

Another possible option, Pippa Middleton could say “yes” by Emilia Wickstead, British stylist who has already dressed her in white for the christening of her niece Charlotte in the summer of 2015. Kate Middleton’s little sister would not also be the first celebrity affiliated with the royal family to choose her for her wedding . In May 2016, Lady Charlotte Wellesley has united with the businessman Alejandro Santo Domingo, in one of his creations.

A follower of the creators Marchesa Notte, Alice temperley or Erdem, the Duchess of Cambridge shares with her sister the same taste for signed creations Jenny Packham. Having already dressed the two young women on several occasions, the British stylist has her chances, her style corresponding to the elegant, refined and sophisticated allure of the bride-to-be. The bets are open.
