Ever since Pippa Middleton became engaged to financier James Matthews back in July, we’ve been dreaming up her wedding gown in our heads. After all, her sister Kate Middleton‘s wedding-day gown will probably go down as the most iconic white dress of our generation, so it’s only natural for us to wonder if Pippa’s will be just as fabulous. We’ve been thinking the 33-year-old bride might choose the likes of Alexander McQueen to design her wedding dress — just as Kate did &mash; but a recent event has made us think otherwise.
According to the International Business Times, “the sighting of designer Giles Deacon with large garment bag in hand at her London home is currently sparking up interest on what the royal-in-law might be walking down the aisle in.” The garment bag fiasco may not be all that peculiar, considering that the socialite probably receives designer clothes all the time, but the fact that Pippa’s MOM was present during the exchange is making us believe this royal visit had a liiittle something to do with her wedding day — and possibly, her wedding dress!
Deacon, who is well-known for making statement gowns for celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Scarlett Johansson and even Princess Beatrice, has dabbled in the wedding gown business before. He designed Abbey Clancy’s stunning wedding dress in 2011 when she tied the knot with Peter Crouch, and we’re actually obsessed with how pretty it is. “As to how the actual dress will look, however, it is likely that Deacon is looking into classic art and the fashion it portrayed,” IBTimes wrote. “His Instagram feed has been full of beautiful paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which he has been captioning as ‘research.'”
It looks like we have another iconic wedding dress in the works!
