She may have eschewed a long-sleeve wedding gown — like the one worn by her sister, Kate Middleton, in 2011 — but Pippa Middleton’s cap-sleeve lace wedding dress was a stunner, and sure to start a brand new bridal style trend. The royal sister married her longtime love, hedge fund manager James Matthews, in Englefield, England on Saturday morning, and donned an exceptional frock by designer Giles Deacon.
The custom gown features a high neckline and corseted bodice, and includes a heart-shaped peekaboo opening on the back — the perfect detail for a down-the-aisle photo. She paired the dress with ivory Manolo Blahnik heels, and donned a tiara and veil by Robinson Pelham.
Here’s Pippa looking radiant in her lace wedding dress.
And here’s a look at the detail on the back of the gown.

Talk about sisterly love!
