Kate arrived at the wedding ceremony of Thomas Sutton and Harriet Colthurst with pal Louise Aubrey-Fletcher, looking chic in a knee-length red lace dress. The dress was originally reported as Erdem, but has now been confirmed as a french lace number from Collette Dinnigan. It may not be our favourite Kate look (the slanted hat kind of has a stewardess feel), but we understand that it must be difficult for the Duchess to strike the right note when trying not to upstage the bride.
Kate's accessories included a pair of patent platform Prada pumps.
While they look black in the first picture, this one definitely shows
them as more burgundy. The Duchess also carried her Aspinal
London Eaton Clutch and wore a diamond bracelet that looks
like the one she wore to the BAFTA event in L.A.
A similar red dress from Collette Dinnigan, fashioned from French lace.
This one has cap sleeves and an attractive V-neckline (we pretty much
like it better than Kate's), but is made of the same lace and has the same hemline.
Pippa, who has been on quite the marathon wedding schedule as of late, showed up with boyfriend Alex Loudon this time. Pips wore a monochromatic Alexander McQueen dress. This isn't terrible, but we never seem to be wowed by the Pipster's wedding looks.
The bride wore an oldish-feeling column dress with a pleated bodice.
We do like that tiara. Very much.
Oh, and were you wondering just what Wills was up to?
He was at the wedding too, but as he was an usher he showed
up at the church beforehand so that Kate had to arrive solo.
