“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride…” But it doesn’t matter if your Princess Catherine’s maid-of-honor, because you’ll be wearing some hot designer duds! For the ceremony, both Kate Middleton and her younger sister, Pippa, were wearing Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton. But for the second reception, Pippa wore an emerald green Temperley gown. “The dress was designed especially for her with a fantastic open back and a full skirt for dancing in,” Alice Temperley explained. Temperley, who attended the same college as McQueen and Burton (Central St. Martins), launched her own line in 2000. The high-end British designer might sound familiar to American ears, due to her participation in the Target GO International program. This gown’s color does look divine on Miss Middleton, but maybe that’s because our editors are quite biased… We certainly approve of maid-of-honors in green!
