Philippa Charlotte Middleton Matthews
Pippa wore a gorgeous wedding dress designed by British fashion star Giles Deacon. Designer Deacon described the dress as: a high neck bespoke silk cotton lace hand appliquéd to create an illusion of the dress having no seams, with a lace bodice embroidered and pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt. The skirt had a number of layers designed to enable a floor-sweeping movement.
Pippa’s veil was made by milliner Stephen Jones, of tulle with embroidered pearls. The tiara she wore was by Robinson Pelham, and her ivory stain pumps by Manolo Blahnik with pearl detailing.
Not much is known about Pippa since she doesn’t give many interviews. She is 33, born on September 6, 1983.
