We can’t say that Kate Middleton is a big champion of eclectic ensembles and color clashing, but in putting together her look for Pippa Middleton’s wedding, we can appreciate the fashion-girl trick she did use. Head-to-toe monochrome, specifically.
The Duchess chose a blush-colored Alexander McQueen dress—the same designer behind her now-iconic wedding dress, as you may recall—to celebrate with her family. It featured a V-neck and slightly full, long sleeves—a modest and elegant choice. But the pieces that truly made the difference were Kate’s fascinator and pumps in the same shade of blush. Even her makeup mimicked the hues of her clothing.
Using a singular color palette is a classic fashion-girl shortcut to a chic and elevated ensemble. We just loved that she followed the trend today. Keep scrolling for her complete look.
