Designer behind Diana’s wedding dress gives a hint of what Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress could look like

David Emanuel is the man behind the iconic dress Princess Diana wore down the aisle to marry Prince Charles in 1981.

He’s a designer famed for styling some high profile weddings, and he’s given his thoughts on exactly what Pippa Middleton should look like on her big day.

Speaking to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Good Morning Britain, the designer – who revealed the most expensive dress he’s designed cost £80,000 – said Pippa should opt for the antithesis of her sister Kate’s big day.

‘I would do her the complete opposite of her sister,’ he said. ‘Let’s remember Catherine was a royal bride, it was a royal wedding. She looked very grand and quite severe, but amazing confidence as a bride.’

‘Pippa now, very pretty younger sister, please do her the complete opposite, do it soft and pretty, it’s an English country wedding,’ he added.

He commented that the two girls are completely different, and should be styled as such.

‘She’s very English pretty, is she going to better [Kate’s]? Yes if she does the opposite.’

David added that Pippa should accessorise with flowers in her hair: ‘I’d do a soft bit in lace and loads and loads of chiffon, keep it soft.’

The day is reportedly costing £250,000, with famous faces such as Spencer Matthews, brother of Pippa’s fiance, potentially Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s girlfriend, and Donna Air attending the do.

Spencer’s girlfriend Vogue Williams has reportedly been banned from the main event, with only an invite to the reception because her relationship with Spencer is still ‘new’.

The wedding takes place on Saturday May 20.
