Princess Eugenie's Wedding Dress Was So Stunning, She Left Us Breathless
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are married! After months of speculation, we finally got to see what Eugenie's wedding gown looked like, as well as who she entrusted with the task of creating the most important outfit of her life — and, well, it certainly didn't disappoint. For her big day, the princess wore a regal gown by British designer Peter Pilotto, with a pair of Charlotte Olympia heels.
With a modern and feminine silhouette, Eugenie's dress looked like it came straight out of a fairy tale. It featured a beautiful neckline which folded around the shoulders, a full pleated skirt, and a long, flowing train. The most striking detail, however, was the low back, which was a specific request of Princess Eugenie as she wanted to show off the scar she got after having surgery to correct her scoliosis at the age of 12.
But of course, a royal wedding dress wouldn't be the same if it didn't come with a few subtle details. Just like Meghan Markle chose to have flowers from the Commonwealth countries embroidered on her veil, Eugenie asked Peter Pilotto to include a number of symbols that are meaningful to her on the design: the Thistle for Scotland, which acknowledges the couple's love for Balmoral; a Shamrock for Ireland, which is a nod to the Ferguson family; and the York Rose and ivy, which represent Eugenie and Jack's home.
Eugenie accessorized her stunning gown with the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara — which was lent to her by the queen — as well as diamond and emerald drop earrings, but surprised everyone by choosing not to wear a veil. Read on to see Princess Eugenie's incredible dress in more detail.
