Royal wedding: Pippa Middleton's dress receives (many) votes of approval

April 29, 2011 |  1:40 pm

Kate Middleton’s dress isn’t the only garment making headlines just hours after the royal wedding-- her sister and maid of honor Pippa Middleton’s dress is receiving accolades as well.

Pippa’s dress was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, who also designed the bride’s wedding gown. Although it is unusual for a bridesmaid to wear the same color as the bride, many applauded Pippa’s ivory satin-based crepe form-fitting column dress with a cowl neck and the same button detail and lace trims as the bride’s dress.

 “I like the counterpoint that they gave each other," said fashion expert Tim Gunn. "Very interesting that Pippa would wear that dress everyone predicted Catherine would wear."

Others have described Pippa’s look as “flawless” (The Daily Mirror). Sherri Shepherd of "The View" wondered if Pippa outshined her sister, and US Weekly described her as the “hottest bridesmaid ever.”
