The Royal Wedding…A Day in History to Remember…and Why Kate Middleton’s Sister Pippa is also Wearing White…
Today was a very special day in the U.K. and around the world, as millions of viewers watched the wedding ceremony of Prince William and Kate Middleton (“Princess Kate” by the public, but formally known as Princess William of Wales).
I personally think Princess Kate looked ultra elegant and classy while there were many critics complaining that her dress was too simple and she could have chosen something a little more extravagant. However, I honestly respect her choice and think this is what best suits HER. If you observe her style, she is not one to dress extravagantly. She always carries herself with elegance and why should her wedding day be any different?!
Also, I would like to add that her makeup was phenomenal and of course I was curious as to who did it, which a friend had found out she apparently did it herself! I’m even more impressed if this is the truth as the makeup looked flawless!
Now moving onto what is making a lot of headlines in the USA, not just Kate Middleton’s dress selection, but also her sister Pippa Middleton, who happens to be wearing a white dress. As we know in American culture, it is not okay to wear white to a wedding (it’s kind of a silly style rule if you ask me).
HOWEVER, in the U.K., it’s actually seen as GOOD LUCK to wear white and sort of resemble the bride and groom to ward off evil spirits. How interesting! So I hope this ends any sort of confusion regarding Pippa’s choice in wearing white!
