It’s fair to say that I haven’t paid that much attention to the growing anticipating of the Royal Wedding and was only vaguely aware that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were on the cover of every magazine I walked past in the shops. In fact it was only today, after the wedding that I have realised who ‘she’ is in relationship to Suits… you could say I need to get with the programme a little.
I am grateful therefore that a friend threw a wedding party which made me aware of the fashion show that was taking place at Windsor Castle. And what a show it was with some beautiful outfits and everyone looking very dapper. My personal favourite outfits have to go to Lady Kitty Spencer who nailed her Royal Wedding look and then I couldn’t be writing this without mentioning Amal Clooney who looked stunning in her vibrant yellow combination. What added just the right edge was her gold metallic shoes… and so my attention went to the shoes!
The dress code for a Royal Wedding could be seen as quite stifling so it was great to see some boundaries being pushed. Ladies must have stocking’d legs and are only allowed to wear closed toe shoes, so no sandals on show despite that very un-British blue sky. The dress code also states that women must wear heels, but no stilettos but it was clear that there was quite a liberal interpretation of this, and I am very grateful for this too as there were some stunning stilettos on show.
Here’s my round up of the best shoes on show at the Royal Wedding:
1. Priyanka Chopra – lavender beaded high heeled shoes
In my opinion, the best dressed feet belonged to Priyanka Chopra, close friend to Meghan Markle. These shoes signal a fab new trend ahead for beautiful sparkly feet!
2. Amal Clooney – gold metallic high heeled pumps
This lady knows how to dress well – does she ever look anything but amazing! Her bright yellow outfit was beautiful and regal, perfect for the Royal Wedding but my attention was definitely on her shoes. I want some, just like that… gorgeous shoes!
3. Victoria Beckham – vivid orange stilettos
Now if there is someone who can bend the dress code rules it’s VB. There’s no question these are stiletto heels and they totally rock. Love how subtle and stylish her navy outfit is and then a huge POP of bright orange on her beautiful shoes was spot on.
4. Oprah Winfrey – blush pink Mary Jane mules
Oprah’s last minute change of outfit has been talked about all over the fashion pages today and it seems to me that she made the right call. She looked stunning in blush pink Stella McCartney and her shoes finished her look beautifully. On trend mules in a beautiful, understated Mary Jane style. Perfect.
