Pippa Middleton's Royal Wedding Dress + OOAK Royal Wedding dolls

Hello, world! It is 3:26 a.m. in California right now, and at this particular moment there are a number of things on my mind: The Middleton Sister's dresses at the Royal Wedding, amongst others. So, I shall begin!!

On April 29th, 2011, the entire world was glued to their television sets to witness history in the making: Not only was there to be a new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appointed (as well as there also being a future king and queen, William is 2nd in line of succession to the throne), the beloved and always remembered Princess Diana's first born was getting married, once again making history. Such a lovely woman she was, Princess Diana, and how I cried wishing she could have been at the wedding. Except nobody was really paying attention to the 1900+ guests or the fact that the wedding in total ended up costing $2.9 billion, all the attention was fixated on Catherine Middleton's wedding dress. Since little to no details were in fact revealed before the big day, the universe wondered what she would possibly pick, anxiously anticipating the big day. 3:30 in the morning PST quickly arrived, as I raced up the stairs to awaken my sound-asleep mother. Barely awake, she asked "Who is that?" There, we saw a vision in loveliness gracing our television screen: A very cool, gorgeous satin ivory dress, with little finishes of lace on the cap sleeves and decolltege, followed by a finish of white satin buttons in the back that went down the spine. This was not the Duchess of Cambridge, but none other than her darling little sister, Phillipa "Pippa" Middleton. With her beautiful body and dazzling smile, she was stunning as she graced the red carpet down into St. Abbey's Cathedral. She only further complimented the dress with white Jimmy Choo sandals, floral diamond earring studs (personally designed by Mama Middleton), and lily of the valley flowers decorating her chestnut brown hair. Kate's dress, on the other hand, was nothing I would stop and say "WOW!" to... It was somewhat of a mess. Here is EXACTLY what it was: It was 2 different parts of 2 completely different dresses, mixed and matched. The lace on the top, the sweetheart neckline, the whole thing was a disaster. Plus, for somebody who is very pretty like Kate, she looked horrible. She insisted on doing her own hair and make up, she looked like she just got done running a marathon to St. Abbey's. Overall, she was one of the plainest looking brides my mother and I have ever seen, It seemed like everybody and their sister had to write glowing status updates about it on Facebook within the hour. Of course, nobody is going to want to insult the new Duchess, which is why anybody who liked the dress is a docile, carbon-copied cliche of society. Although both of the Middleton's dresses were designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, PIPPA'S DRESS REALLY DID STEAL THE SHOW, AND PRETTY SOON, THE WHOLE WORLD CAUGHT ON, TOO. EVEN WITH PEOPLE MAGAZINE CALLING HER "The sizzling knockout who stole the show." A close friend of mine told me that Pippa's dress was in fact Kate's original pick and was the first dress she tried on. GUESS YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH THAT ONE, KATE! I know that the Duchess is simple when it comes to style, but THIS IS THE ROYAL WEDDING, LOVE! GO ALL OUT!




                                                     "THE DRESS THAT STOLE THE SHOW"

Pippa continued to wow the crowd once at the Royal Reception following the wedding in a sleeveless emerald green dress with a plunging neckline by Alice Temperley with a jewel finish in the middle. actually liked Kate's dress this time around, and she actually improved on her hair and make up. She was a lovely duchess of a winter-wonderland. Once again designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, I also couldn't help but get a "White Riding Hood" feel from it?



                                                   


Dakota'ssong, a very popular OOAK (One Of A Kind) doll making team of sisters Christine and Nikki, made replicas of all the dolls except for Pippa's reception dress. Quite frankly, the Kate doll looks MUCH better than the actual Kate did at the wedding. The girls do stunning work and can make virtually any doll upon request. I've posted some pictures below. I'm going to try to get some sleep so I can put an end to being nocturnal. Until next time, ciao!!!!

I also forgot to mention Kate's engagement party dress. I found this to be a nice dress with a brilliant blue color. There is also a doll that follows
