White faux pas amongst left-field fashion choices
Stars from singers to supermodels were among A-listers at Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding, but some of their fashion choices raised eyebrows.
Catwalk model Cara Delevingne wore a black tailored suit with tails, a tie, and a top hat, with her look compared to a character from Oliver Twist by a bridal expert.
Peta Hunt, editor at large at You & Your Wedding Magazine, said: “Of course it’s OK to wear a mannish powersuit to a wedding. It’s modern, stylish and cool – love the Artful Dodger look.”
Fashion queen Kate Moss took her seat in the front row wearing a delicate monochrome polka dot outfit, while supermodel Naomi Campbell turned up clad in a textured black knee-length dress with white detailing.
Sarah Allard, editor at hitched.co.uk, thought Campbell pulled off the look.
However, she was less convinced about X Factor judge Ayda Field, who chose all white. “Wearing white or any shade of white to a wedding is commonly considered a huge no-no, even more so for a royal wedding,” Ms Allard said. Field entered St George’s Chapel at Windsor with singer husband Robbie Williams.
Their six-year-old daughter Theodora was one of Eugenie’s bridesmaids.
Undoubtedly casting a discerning eye over the outfits on display was fellow guest David Emanuel – the designer of Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Other singers at the ceremony of the ninth in line to the throne included James Blunt, Ellie Goulding and Ricky Martin. Providing a touch of levity were comedians Stephen Fry, Jimmy Carr and Jack Whitehall.
