Princess Eugenie chose a bespoke Peter Pilotto dress designed Christopher De Vos and Peter Pilotto for her wedding to Jack Brooksbank today.
The British-based label was founded in London in 2007 and the designers said they undertook archive research into previous dresses worn by members of the Royal Family and identified a silhouette.
The neckline which exposes the shoulders and low back was a feature specifically requested by Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis. The dress itself was developed layer by layer, from the corset to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt.
De Vos and Pilotto created the dress fabric at their studio in East London. A thistle for Scotland, a shamrock for Ireland, the York rose for England and ivy representing the couple’s home, were reinterpreted and woven into the jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend.
The bridal shoes were a pair of satin peep-toe heels by Charlotte Olympia.
Maid of Honour, Princes Beatrice wore a custom Ralph and Russo ink blue, off the shoulder two-piece, while the Duchess of Sussex opted for a coat dress from her wedding dress designer, Givenchy.
Among the guests were Liv Tyler, who wore a navy skirt suit and Demi Moore, who wore a burgundy Bordeaux dress, both from Stella McCartney.
