Celebrity inspired wedding guest: Kate Middleton

 Kate Middleton is the ultimate style Queen. She makes it into all the best dressed lists and every piece of clothing or jewellery she wears quickly sells out in less than 24 hours.

Her looks are always impeccable and perfect for any occasion and that is why I have chosen to highlight some of her outfits, as they will help inspire you for any upcoming wedding you may be attending.


Long dresses

Kate saves long dresses for very special occasions and they are always absolutely stunning. She usually goes for dresses that highlight her tiny waist, have a flowy skirt and short sleeves.

She completes her look with a matching clutch, sky-high heels and her famous glossy hair.

Remember, long dresses are PERFECT for evening weddings.


Short dresses

Knee-length dresses are definitely Kate’s favourite. She wears them on most outings, public and private. Since her wedding to William in 2011 we have seen her in hundreds of them.

Although she usually favours dark colours, she sometimes surprises with bright and bold choices.

The three looks shown here are just some of my favourite and are appropriate for any type of wedding, especially a morning one.

Which one of the three is your favourite: the purple Issa dress, the Jenny Packham dress with flower detailing in the front or the stunning red Alexander McQueen creation she wore for the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant?



Winter looks

We are lucky that Kate has engagements all year round as we get to see how she embraces all the seasons. Here are three outfits that could work for a winter wedding, which requires more covering up!


If you are pregnant…

Being pregnant does not mean you have to wear shapeless and boring clothes and the Duchess of Cambridge is the perfect example as to how to embrace maternity style with the ease and grace of a queen. Here are just three of the outfits she wore during her pregnancy.

They are stunning and so elegant.


Wedding dress inspiration

Very rarely, Kate goes out in white outfits, and although they are not suitable for a more traditional and religious wedding, some brides who are thinking of having a more relaxed and low-key wedding might find some inspiration in these three choices:

Royal weddings: Tatiana Santo Domingo and Andrea Casiraghi

After an eight-month engagement and a child together, Princess Caroline‘s son Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo finally tied the knot last month.

Both the ceremony and reception took place in Monaco and the young couple surrounded themselves with 350 close family and friends who flew over to the small Principality from all over the world.

Here we take a look at ALL the details: the two wedding dresses, the lunch party, the fancy dress dinner party, the stunning guests and much more!


The bride

Tatiana was the ultimate boho bride on her big day. The 29-year-old stayed true to her style and opted to walk down the aisle in a V-neck Missoni dress with three-quarter-length sleeves.

The dress’s bodice was embroidered with raffia and silk thread, and the full-length circle skirt featured layers of silk organza that matched her five-month-old son Alexander’s bloomers (not pictured on the wedding day).


The bride ditched the traditional high-heeled wedding shoes for comfortable flat silver sandals.

Groom Andrea chose a dark blue suit with a spotted tie and white shirt.

The hair and make-up

Bride Tatiana topped the vintage look off with tousled tresses and a floral headpiece, similar to the she wore for her pre-wedding party.

As for her make-up, she kept her look natural, opting for a bit of blusher and lipstick.


The bridesmaids

The bridesmaids weren’t given any specific dressing instructions, but almost all were in Dolce & Gabbana or Valentino.  Two of the bridesmaids wore a yellow Valentino dress which featured light pink, dark pink and yellow heavy lace at the chest with a flirty cutout, a round neckline, a high waisted and pleated A-line skirt with a scalloped hem and two more flirtatious cutouts on the back.


The other two bridesmaids were spotted in a Dolce&Gabbana bouquet flower and strawberry print dress from the FW14 pre collection.


The bride’s second wedding dress

For the couple’s wedding dinner party, the bride changed into a stunning lace Valentino dress with long sleeves, from the 2013 Resort Collection.

It seems the dress was specially made for the bride. The pattern used for the dress is only featured in the Resort collection as a jump suit and the actual design is from the Valentino Spring/Summer collection.


The wedding parties

Following the romantic ceremony, which took place inside the Palace, Andrea and Tatiana were joined by the likes of Greek shipping heiress Eugenie Niarchos and Tatiana’s influential New York-based siblings for an al fresco lunch by the Palace pool. The guests enjoyed a garden lunch with popcorn and ice-cream cart included.



A rock-and-reggae band performed as guests lounged on casual picnic blankets set up on the hillside. Everyone drank the local electric-blue-coloured pastis and, just as the sun hit its peak in the sky, Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline’s daughters led the charge and jumped into the pool.

Later in the day, all guests changed into the long gowns and tuxedos for an incredible party which took place at the Monte-Carlo Sporting Club.



What did you think of Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo¡s wedding? What was your favourite part? Did you like that the bride stayed true to herself?

Celebrity inspired wedding guest: Charlotte Casiraghi

Whenever I know that I have a wedding coming up I start to look at different celebrities for inspiration. I have a few fave celebs, but Charlotte Casiraghi is definitely my NUMBER ONE choice for inspiration.

I love her style, whether it is for a fashion show, a wedding or a royal event, she looks perfect in every way.

Here I have gathered some of my favourite looks to help any mystery readers who are in search of inspirations!



The looks above are perfect for morning weddings, they are the perfect length and the colour is ideal if you have a nice soft tan. In the picture on the left, Charlotte is attending her uncle Prince Albert’s wedding to Charlene.



I LOVE the choices above. I have to say I prefer evening weddings to morning ones, I just love love love wearing long dresses. For SURE my wedding will be an evening one, can’t wait to see ALL my girl friends in stunning long gowns!!

My favourite of the three above has to be the third dress, a stunning Giambattista Valli dress in Princess Grace blue.




Here I have chosen a bit of everything, but all in the same colour,grey. The middle one is lovely for a winter wedding. I once went to a winter wedding and I have to say that I had no idea what to wear. I actually ended up wearing long black trousers and it is one of by biggest fashion regrets!



Charlotte rocked both these Gucci green dresses, the one of the left for a fashion event and the one on the right for the Cannes Film Festival. She knows how to choose right, doesn’t she?




My last choices are the most informal ones of all. Some weddings don’t require the guests to go too over the top, such as civil weddings, and I think these choice are perfect. The one on the left is ideal for the spring/summer season and the one on the right for autumn/winter.

Which one is your favourite choice?

Celebrity inspired wedding guest: Diane Kruger

I love Diane Kruger. Her style is always impeccable. I think if I raided her wardrobe I would not find one single piece of clothing that I did not like. That’s why I have chosen her best looks to inspire future wedding guests ahead of the big day, especially with the sales just around the corner.

I have selected several outfits that she has worn over the last year and that could work for a winter and summer wedding. Hopefully you will be inspired by them!

Winter Wedding

Just because temperatures might be below zero, or it may be pouring down and snowing it doesn’t mean you have to cover up like a polar bear. Diane still manages to look elegant and chic! For the switching on of the Christmas lights along the Champs Elysees, Paris, the actress braved the French cold in a lovely thick olive coloured dress and high boots.

My favourite look has to be the third one, where she is wearing a very sexy double strap blue lace jumpsuit from Jason Wu and a cosy leopard print coat.

Long dresses

Diane is mostly seen with long dresses. Some are a bit over the top such as the ones she wears to big events like the Cannes Film Festival or the Oscars, but others are much more low-key and could fit in perfectly in a wedding. Above are my top picks! I love the middle blue dress as I find it very sexy!


Short and colourful dresses

These dresses are perfect for spring and summer weddings. They are very colourful and the perfect length. Strapless, with sleeves or halterneck… take your pick!

Bridal looks 

Diane Kruger can even inspire brides, she sometimes favours white dresses for her red carpet events and they are so elegant and chic that they would be perfect for a low-key wedding or civil ceremony.
