It’s no secret that the Middleton sisters are fans of Alice Temperley’s signature lady-like styles.
And to wow Kuala Lumpur at the Diamond Jubilee tea party, the Duchess of Cambridge chose a pale blue lace dress, fresh from this year’s collection by the British designer.
She complimented the bespoke dress with her favourite LK Bennett nude platforms, and swept her hair into an intricate up-do decorated with pearls – a nod to a Malaysian bridal tradition.
With only a decade in the fashion world, the Somerset-born designer has already made quite an impact in the business, helped no doubt by royal patronage.
So it’s not surprising that she credits Kate as a source of inspiration: “She is a breath of fresh air and has encouraged people to experiment and combine high fashion with high-street fashion.”
Temperley’s bridal line, includes wedding dresses inspired by the romance of the Twenties, along with accessories and outfits for the bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride.
