I knew Pippa Middleton — the stylish author, socialite and sister of  Princess Kate — would surely have a fantastic wedding gown of her own when her special day arrived

It turned out I was absolutely right.

Pippa Middleton, 33, known for stealing the show at Princess Kate's wedding six years ago in the sharpest, figure-grazing bridesmaid dress ever known to man, wed 41-year-old  millionaire financier James Matthews on Saturday in a lacy, capped-sleeved number by British designer Giles Deacon.

I give this nuptial look a solid A.

Shortly after the wedding, Deacon, known for his extravagant red carpet celebrity frocks, told the fashion world that indeed, he was the man behind Middleton's gorgeous gown. He was "thrilled" to work with Middleton.

The bespoke gown was beautiful in its simplicity. It was hand appliqued, Deacon said in a statement, to create the illusion that the the gown, with it's demure high neckline and organza and tulle skirt, was fashioned without seams. The heart-shaped cut-out in the back made for a perfectly alluring touch.  British milliner Stephen Jones made Middleton's tulle veil. And the bride's tiara was courtesy of jeweler Robinson Pelham.  Middleton's ivory, satin pumps were non other than Manolo Blahnik.

Deacon also designed mother of the bride Carole Middleton's  pale pink coat dress. Classy.

And then there was Princess Kate's rosy, pink confection. The calf-length dress, with its built-in peplum detailing and long sleeves, came exclusively from The House of McQueen, where designer Sarah Burton currently sits at the helm.  This vintage, 1950s style dress, in my opinion, is delicious. The fascinator, not so much.

The children in the bridal party — which included the bride's royal niece, Charlotte and nephew, George — were dressed in ensembles provided by the Spanish-based children's wear brand Pepa & Co. Something about those olive, kiddie knee-pants is just divine.

And we would be remiss not to mention the princes. Royal brothers William and Harry were nearly identically dressed in bespoke suits with dapper, double-breasted vests. What a handsome way to complete a royal wedding.
