Royal Wedding Fashion

I've already expressed my love of Pippa Middleton's Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, satin cap sleeved gown which featured the same lace trim and button details as Kate's gown, (which some may find familiar, due to Cameron Diaz wearing a red version to the 2010 Golden Globes), shown here flower girls with Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes; But Pippa wasn't the only person to stand out at the Royal ceremony.

One of the biggest stars of the night, besides Kate and her gown, were the hats! There was not one woman sitting inside Westminster Abbey that was not sporting a topper, whether large or small. Most of these essential British accessories were designed by milliner Philip Treacy, who's designs have often been the final touch of many man SJP's looks. Above we see Princess Beatrice (in Valentino) and Princess Eugenie (in Vivienne Westwood) of York sporting some of his show-stopping work.

This is not Philip Treacy's first encounter with the Royal family, he's also designed for Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, shown entering Westminster Abbey with her husband Prince Charles.

I love Queen Elizabeth II's fashion sense, she's incredibly posh and proper. A great mix of Coco Chanel and Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Here she is leaving with her husband Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, and son Prince Charles of Wales.

Speaking of Posh... The Beckham's were in attendance, and it's rumoured that after the newlyweds visit Canada, they'll be heading to LA and may be staying with the Beckham's. What an interesting friendship. Could you imagine having any of the Royals as house guests? That would be incredibly nerve-racking!

Victoria Beckham wasn't the only "singer" present at the ceremony, normally barefooted free-spirit, Joss Stone looked incredible in this classic red satin sheath dress with matching cropped jacket and complimentary peep-toes. I love this look, even with that cell phone pressed against her ear.

British socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, rocked a head-to-toe cobalt look with a Deborah Milner dress, Nicholas Kirkwood pumps and of course a Philip Treacy hat. Which, although this is my favourite colour and I do actually think it looks good, it would have been interesting to see her throw in something unexpected.

The ladies weren't the only one's to bring their A-game with their fashion choices, Australian Olympic medalist Ian Thorpe was an excellent example of how dapper a man can look in a a great tux!

To close out, the Bride's mother Carole Middleton looked elegant and fit right in with the Royal Family. That is one proud mum!
