Pippa Middleton Should Avoid Looking Like Kate Middleton On Wedding Day, David Emanuel Says
Kate’s little sister, Pippa Middleton should wear a wedding gown that showcases her enviable figure. This was said by David Emanuel, the designer who was behind Princess Diana’s wedding dress.Advertisement
“I personally, would put her in something very soft, perhaps chiffon, with a train of course because it’s dramatic. Possibly a little lace bodice, soft and fluid, I mean she’s got a great shape,” said Emanuel, who co-designed Princess Diana’s wedding dress in 1981.
He added that in order for Pippa to stand out, she should go in for something completely opposite to her royal sister Kate Middleton, Daily Mail reports. The brunette should wear something “soft and pretty” and make a “statement.”
The Welsh-born designer said that Pippa Middleton was not royalty, and would not be one. Emanuel said that a wedding gown with a “little lace bodice soft and fluid” would do justice to her figure.
Pippa Middleton got engaged to hedge fund manager James Matthews in July. She will walk down the aisle next year in one of the biggest society weddings of the year.
According to friends, Kate and Pippa have sat down together to discuss potential designers, with Jenny Packham on top of the list. Kate is expected to be a maid of honor, while Prince George and Princess Charlotte are also expected to play starring roles.
The 32-year-old fitness freak and extreme sports enthusiast was suddenly thrown into limelight at Kate Middleton’s royal wedding to Prince William in 2011.
Emanuel talked about what Pippa should choose for her big day while promoting the new series of his TLC show “Say Yes To The Dress.” The show is a huge hit in the U.S., and is now filmed using British brides, Hello reports.
The show helps engaged women find their dream gowns. It is currently being filmed at the Confetti & Lace bridal boutique in Essex. Talking about Princess Diana’s wedding gown he said he created something that reflected her fresh and young spirit.
The famous dress was in keeping with the grand venue — St Paul’s Cathedral. It also reflected what “every girl thought a princess should look like.”
