Like her sister, Pippa Middleton made a costume change before last night's reception dinner at Buckingham Palace. The maid of honor chose an Alice Temperley dress, after wearing a stunning sleek ivory satin gown by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen to the ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
For the party celebrating Prince William and Kate, Pippa wore an emerald green Temperley London gown with a plunging neckline and sparkly embellishments -- a definite color contrast from her pale number earlier in the day.
She paired the jewel-toned stunner with Aruna Seth's "Lynn" sandal, a silver strappy shoe with rhinestone accents. The bridal accessory designer sent Pippa 10 pairs -- these were the winner.
"I was honored that Ms. Pippa Middleton asked me to design her dress for the Royal Wedding evening reception," Temperley said Friday, according to People magazine. "Pippa was a delight to work with and knows exactly what she likes. She loved the green color, which looks great on her skin tone. The dress was designed especially for her with a fantastic open back and a full skirt for dancing in."
Pippa and mom Carole had been spotted at the designer's boutique earlier this month, sparking rumors that Temperley was creating the bridesmaid's dress and the royal wedding gown. It appears at least part of the speculation was true.
