Get a Wardrobe Worthy of the Royal Wedding

I'm betting that since Friday's fairytale nuptials you've been lusting after Prince Harry as well as all the fabulous outfits showcased in the glorious setting of Westminster Abbey. And I'm guessing that now you want to know where you can get your hands on an ensemble worthy of a royal wedding - I'm right, aren't I? Well at least I can help you out in the fashion department, when it comes to landing a prince, I'm afraid you're on your own.

Several guests, including the likes of Laura Parker Bowles, wore outfits from Austique - the Kings Road boutique which has been a firm favourite of Kate and Pippa Middleton for years. Owner Katie Canvin confirmed:

'At Austique we have been busy for quite some weeks now dressing guests for the royal wedding and helping them choose their outfits. From the pieces we have sold it seems very much that the ladies are following in Kate's classic style and basing their look on what she would wear to attend a wedding. Dresses are structured and wrapped, such as the Libelula dress that one guest has chosen from us and the Issa pieces Kate is so often seen in. Coats are all knee-length, and those more daring have chosen to express themselves through bold splashes of colour, such as a hot pink coat and Austique own brand dress that we sold to one customer.'

Dress, Libelula £310


Red Clutch, Wilbur & Gussie £165
Black Gown, Yeojin Bae £500

One outfit I particularly admired was Holly Branson's beautiful lace dress and tailored jacket - which are stand-out pieces from Irwin & Jordan's SS/11 collection. Designer Zoe Jordan said she was 'thrilled' that Holly chose one of her creations for the occasion:

'The royal wedding is a truly great British occasion. It is a unique moment in history and as a member of the British Fashion industry I am privileged to play a part in their big day. I am so thrilled that Holly Branson chose Irwin & Jordan. She embodies our brand; understated, effortless in style, and so wonderfully elegant.'
