Long Island Bridesmaids Dresses FASHION FRONT

Jump to Comments

Leave it to the Brits to create and popularize a bridesmaids gown that doesn’t look like a typical bridesmaids gown!   Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, made headlines of her own at the royal wedding with her gorgeous dress designed and created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.   Fabricated with heavy, ivory satin-based crepe, the cowl neckline is elegant and stylish.   So stylish that it’s soon coming to bridal salons near you.   National retailer David’s Bridal is quickly churning out their version of the gown, as is designer Faviana, according to this article in The New York Times.

But here’s an interesting fashion tidbit:  Pippa’s dress was not quite that original.   Cameron Diaz wore a very similar version, also designed by Alexander McQueen, back in 2010.   Which begs the question — will we be seeing more red carpet-inspired bridesmaids dresses in the near future?
