I tell you, these fascinators are not for the shy! Pippa looks like she's got a spider web spun around her head. And neither of these dresses appeal to me. Pippa's is just too overembroidered and with those sleeves, it looks like a child's dress.

Pippa's fascinator is actually not bad at all, am not fond of Catherine's though.

I think Pippa looks great here with her hair up; as does Emilia Jardine-Paterson.

Kate not loving the dress or her messy hair!

I really didn't care for any of the dresses I saw in the link. Pippa's dress looks like a little girl dress but I love her hat!

There are no great outfits going on there except for the men in their morning suits.

The Express's front page which ghost_night linked to has a big image of Pippa and a tiny little photo of Kate. I think they need to get their priorities straight.

kate's dress for me is nice. may be was very similar to the 80`s. I may be many people I make angry but I hace to sat that the dress is a carbon copy to one that diana used in canada 1983. one white with blue.
Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

I think Kate should give up on those Beulah dresses; they simply aren't becoming for her!

(In fact they are dowdy and old-fashioned, imo.) I know it sold out immediately, but someone compared it to flowered curtains and I think that's an apt comparison!

Just about any other designer suits her better.

I like Pippa's outfit better but it does look like a little girl's dress.

Although those flower pattern dresses seem to be in vogue (see the dresses favoured by several other guests ), I am not too fond of them. On the other hand, the cut and fabric of the Duchess' dress look nice to me. Here in Brazil, we almost never wear hats, so I really cannot give an educated opinion about them.

Are these dresses the new fashion???? Horrible. They all seems when a charwomen dressed to a lady... Did you see the "Sissi"-film? Sissi and the emperor are in Italy, and the nobility send their own servants to the reception/banquett... I have this feeling now, if I see these pictures. I can't belive that this class can't make eleganter...

I have to say Im not fond of the dresses. I suppose it is the thing to wear to a wedding but Im not into it. The dresses look too old. I think they could have done better but Catherine is wearing my favorite shoes! :)

William and Kate are at Wimbledon today to watch the men's quarterfinals. Kate is wearing the McQueen sailor inspired knitted outfit that she wore in Canada to see Prince Edward Island (I think).

The gentleman sitting behind Kate, whom she greeted with kisses, is Tim Henman's father, Tony Henman. Kate also met Jane Henman, Tony's wife who's sitting on his left, with warm kisses. I believe the Henmans are good friends of the Middletons.
