Royal Wedding Style

Read more about the Queen's look
For starters, I thought the queen looked fierce in her canary yellow ensemble, and compared to the other guests her hat was relatively demure.
E! Online speculates that she was inspired by Grace Kelly

I was pleased with Kate's dress, it was appropriate for a church wedding but but beautiful. It may not have been a bold statement, but it was timelessly elegant. Read the New York Times review of the dress here. The gown was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen (view her Spring 2011 Runway Show).  Burton is also rumored to be in the running to replace John Galliano at Dior.

Kate borrowed the Queen's tiara
Kate's sister Pippa also looked lovely in Alexander McQueen, the children looked adorable of course!
And finally, and most importantly, the hats! Milliner Phillip Treacy was the standout of the day.

Kate's Mom, The Queen, Camilla
Princesses Eugenie & Beatrice (Fergie's daughters). I hate the beige one. They can't all be winners. Turns out Beatrice has a history of horrendous hats.
Check out the NY Mag's Royal Wedding Slideshow for more pics!

UPDATE: For the next round of parties, Middleton changed into another lovely Burton creation. I love the shrug! "Is Camilla wearing a house dress?"- My Mom.

UPDATE II: Nordstrom already has a reproduction gown for preorder.  It's availible in sizes 0-24W!

JS Collections 'Duchess' Wedding Gown

FINAL UPDATE: Princess Beatrice's hat was auctioned off and raised 130,000 for UNICEF. It's still ugly, but ugly for a great cause.
