Zara Phillips Gets Married
There's a chance you might not even know who she is but Zara Philips is technically a British princess is in fact 13th in line to the throne. Grand-daughter of The Queen, first cousin of William and Harry, she's spirited, athletic and very attractive. On July 30th in Scotland, she married another sporty-type, the former English rugby captain, Mike Tindall. Arriving on the arm of her father, Captain Mark Phillips, Zara wore a cap-sleeved, ivory silk gown designed by one of her grandmother's favorite couturiers, Stewart Parvin. The chevron-pleated bodice ended in dramatic inverted pleats on a dropped waist, designed to create a bell-shaped silhouette, while the concealed constructed corset had delicate fabric-covered buttons decorating the center back of the gown, running from the neckline to the hem.
The groom wore a morning suit from Saville Row tailor, Cad and the Dandy
The bride wore the exquisite Greek Key tiara loaned to her by her mother, Princess Anne. It was once owned by Princess Alice of Battenburg, the mother of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and great-grandmother of the bride.
"Shoe of the Day" was most definitely a nude pump (court shoe) made popular of late by The Duchess of Cambridge who favors the LK Bennett "Andie" (currently sold out on their website and only available on ebay.) The Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, plus numerous guests, wore nude colored shoes. Kate recycled a coat from 2006 but splashed out on a new hat.
