White faux pas amongst left-field fash­ion choices

The Scotsman - - News Digest - By THOMAS HORNALL

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.
