My favourite ladies at the the royal extravagenza

Yes, I was at home as it was a bank holiday and instead of revising for exams, I carefully chose to utilise my precious time to gasp at the royal wedding.

Come on, it was like a live fashion magazine and hard to resist! Now don't get me wrong, studying Marketing is equally fun too(yeah right!) but now that I have graduated already, it wont matter if I fail the Masters programme, right? RIGHT?

Anyhow, it was a coat and hat extravaganza and I had some favourites who looked like a million bucks in my opinion.

These two ladies stood out of the crowd as soon as they stepped out of their vehicle. The blue dress is a stunner and really compliments her body shape well. As for Princess Beatrice, you can't beat her for hats now can you? However this one here left everyone awestruck, in a shocking way I mean.

I however loved the way she pulled the entire nude ensemble with so much ease. Full marks for confidence (and the dramatic smokey eyes!).

If Lady Gaga would wear it, you wouldn't call it odd would you? 

I also found Zara Phillips particularly striking in her simple yet striking silver apparel. The hat again is a stunner here isn't it? Aren't their coats to die for?

With that expression and the full black attire, Posh mistook the event for a funeral did she?  I mean I usually am bowled over by her style but on this particular occasion, she could have dressed more appropriately. 

Some colour wouldn't have hurt for sure. The dress is one of her creations and I think she went a bit too far trying to cover her pregnant self. 

Why is she in my favourite list then? Coz I just love them as a couple! ha.

Chelsy Davy looked so pretty in her turquoise little number. Quite funky for the occasion I would say but she pulls it off quite well! Everyone should dress as young!

We can't forget the three leading ladies and they looked half their age! Especially Kate's mum and the Queen. How pretty is Kate's mum eh? and I still don't have a single yellow outfit in my wardrobe. *makes a mental note*

The showstopper however was Kate, without a doubt! LOVE the lace sleeves. I know, I know she could have gotten away with a slightly more puffy dress and some further blending in her make-up but regardless, I think she's a perfect Princess!

Out with it now! Tell me who you liked and who you despised?

I thought Pippa Middleton was best dressed by far today :) xxx

I like both the princesses dresses, but neither of their hats! Seems most people hated them. I think VB was the best dressed there in navy, absolutely stunning and stylish and how refreshing to not see a celeb wearing a skin tight dress to show off a bump (not that i think a bump should be hidden, I loved my bumps!). I just thought she looked amazing.

kate looked beautiful of course! x

@Charlie - I know people hated them so much! Navy? Oh my, it looks so much like black :O I agree, the fitting of dress is lovely, hated the colour and her hat!

@Sriya - She was gorgeous! But not a fan of her dress.

The worst hat by far was Tara Palmer Tompkinson or Miriam Cleggs I didn;t think Fergies two looked too bad

I loved Kate's gown, the perfect mix of traditional and modernity with long sleeve and the v-neck. I think Vicky B's is the only I would wear, everyone else's hats are just too bold for me!

The fashion just made me drool! The hats, I LOVED the hats! I want to go to a milliner to have a custom crazy hat!

I like Posh's dress because it was more modest around her belly but she could have done with some colour.

I thought Pippa's dress was beautiful and she looked amazing. She must be so happy for her sister.
