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.

    Boy, everyone sure is jumping down Anne's throat for expressing an opinion! I have to agree with her on some things. I too feel that the neckline was too plunging for the event. The color is beautiful and looked wonderful on Pippa. However, this was a wedding reception and the neckline could have been a bit more tasteful. I certainly didn't think it was trashy though. And I don't think she was 'over tanned'. She is a very attractive young woman. As for Kate's wedding gown, I was surprised at it's simplicity. It was very tasteful but even the veil was quite bland. And if Kate looked tired, goodness....who wouldn't be under those circumstances? All in all, I think the whole event was exciting and I wish William and Kate all the blessings in the world.

    The dresses were lovely. Kate's wedding gown with its delicate white lace and her flowers was elegantly beautiful and highly appropriate for a royal wedding. Pippa in her emerald evening dress was absolutely stunning! . . . But, .I agree it that the revealing bodice was inappropriate. I know conventions have become more permissive, . . . but men's eyes and minds remain delightly and eternally stepped in testosterone. Thus, the dress was pleasingly suitable for the boudoir or a private evening, not a global social-political event linked to the British crown and people.

    Oh you folks come off it!

    There is nothing wrong in Pippa's dress!

    They are young people, and times have changed.

    No matter how beautiful, there will alwasy be those who will taint or throw something unpleasant in the mix. Why?

    For a private function of 300 of the couples closest friends I see nothing wrong with the neckline. I am sure no one else did at the function.

    I'd like Pippa to undo my Zippa and give ol' Flippa a nice Rippa as I put my Lippa on her Drippa.
    Even the Queen would wave to that action.

    Two beautiful sisters. Two handsome brothers. Pippa surely helped make Kate's Day "perfect" ... but she didn't steal the day. Harry with his good looks and obvious zest for life seemed just as intent on his best man role and support for his brother. I say hurrah to all of them, including the six young attendants -- bridesmaids and groomsmen -- who were perfectly behaved with no tears or tantrums in sight, as so often happens with ones so young in a wedding party. Our fascination with the royal family seems a bit arcane, but it's great entertainment, and I wish them well.

    Mari Mari Mari,

    "As long as a woman is black, she is considered beautiful by blacks." Now isn't that a stupid statement??? Not at all true. Why say it about Caucasians? You are trying to make this a racial topic and it's nothing of the sort. It's about two young women, a new duchess and her sister.

    I think she is just as beautiful as her sister. All the dresses were beautiful. Hoping all had a wonderful evening and enjoyed the wonderful celebration. It was nice to have some good news for once.
