Katie Shillingford, Stylist and Fashion Editor for Dazed & Confused, married Alex Dromgoole in Greenwich's Eltham Palace last Friday wearing a custom pale grey gothic-style gown designed by Gareth Pugh. Pugh is a longtime friend and collaborator of the bride and the unconventional gown he designed for her featured long sleeves (definitely unusual for a summer wedding), and a floor-length skirt made up of shredded layers of silk chiffon. The bride covered her cotton candy pink hair with a floor-length veil designed by famed milliner Stephen Jones.
“WOWSA!!” admired Not Plain Jane
. “She looks AMAZING for her wedding, absolutely gorgeous. She should wear darker lipstick like that more often!”
“thought her dress was stunning – the most memorable bride I have seen in a long time,” she added.
couldn’t agree more. “Wow, that Gareth Pugh gown is absolutely brilliant on her. Every detail from the hair and makeup to the bridesmaids and flower girls dresses is so rockin’! I was so hyped for the Kate Moss
wedding and found it to be a total bore, never was even remotely interested in Kate Middleton
's wedding, so this is the Kate wedding of the summer for me. Amazing. Hope we get to see more.”
Congratulations to the newly married couple! This wedding may not have been as publicized as that of the other British Kates, but it certainly looks like it can hold its own on a fashion level.
