The dress is gorgeous and that’s one hell of a train too!
According to the Royal website, Princess Eugenie’s dress was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, who founded the British based label Peter Pilotto in 2007. The brand is known for its “innovative textile design, paired with a modern feminine silhouette.”
Princess Eugenie and the designers reportedly met when she was co-hosting an event in support of female artists. She has been wearing designs by the brand for years, so it makes sense that she would go with someone she trusts to design her wedding gown.
Eugenie worked closely with the designers who looked at dresses worn by previous members of the Royal Family and chose a silhouette based on that.
You’ll notice that the dress has a low back, this was a specific request of the princess due to the surgery she had when she was 12 to correct scoliosis. The neckline folds around the shoulders and goes into the low back and then flows into the full length train.
The fabric that the dress is made of was custom made for the princess by the designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos and has several symbols which are meaningful to her.
“The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple's fondness for Balmoral, a Shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the bride's Ferguson family, the York Rose and ivy representing the couple's home,” says the royal website.
Princess Eugenie is wearing a beautiful tiara on her head. This is the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara lent to her by Her Majesty The Queen. The tiara is made of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side. The tiara was bequeathed by Mrs Greville to Queen Elizabeth in 1942.
Eugenie’s wedding shoes are satin peep-toe heels by Charlotte Olympia.
