The awaited bride is here!!! The stunning Princess Eugenie arrived at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle wearing a breathtaking gown. She looks the most regal of them all in a gown that featured a well-fitted bodice and full pleated skirt. It was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos. The gown has a neckline that wraps around the shoulders to a low back. This is something the Princess wanted herself because she wanted to show off the scar that’s left from the surgery she underwent when she was only 12 years old. She had to correct her scoliosis and is proud that she made it.
In an interview that took place before the wedding, she actually gave us a hint that her dress might feature the scars on her back, saying:
I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.
All three of them, the Princess, Piter and Christopher worked very closely while designing the dress.
Peter and Christopher designed the gown’s fabric at their studio in East London. They made sure to include a number of symbols that serve as motifs and are of high importance to Eugenie. One of the symbols is a Thistle for Scotland, which serves as an acknowledgment of the couple’s fondness of Balmora. Then, there was a Shamrock that, of course, represents Ireland and the bride’s maternal family. And another symbol was the York Rose which stands for the couple’s home.
The gown designers weaved the symbols into a jacquard of silk, cotton, and viscose. When the artwork was finished, it was transformed into a jacquard weave and the result was a super modern fabric that was woven in an intricate technique, making sure everything looked just as the Princess imagined it.
The Royal Bride accessorized the look with the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara that the Queen lent to her. It is made out of beautiful rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, embellished with a set of stunning six emeralds on each side. She also fashioned herself diamond and emerald earrings which were a wedding gift from Jack.
Of course, Prince Andrew would not miss escorting his daughter to the chapel. Hundreds and hundreds of people had gathered in front of the entrance just to sneak a peek at the royal bride.
One thing Eugenie wanted to keep as a royal tradition was to choose a dress with British ties. She looked absolutely stunning in her ensemble, and that smile on her face truly reflects how she is feeling today.
Although the details of the wedding dress were kept hidden even just months before the wedding, she did tell British Vogue that it had British roots, saying:
I’m not telling anyone who is making it, but I can say it is a British-based designer. [The dress] is the one thing that I was really decisive about. As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.
