The Queen has always been a style icon for Britons and fashion lovers around the globe. Her bright colored outfits and glamorous hats make her stand out and easily noticeable to the public. Being the grandmother of prince harry along with the head of state, she chose to wear a lime green flared dress by Stuart Parvin and a similar toned hat decorated with handmade lace crystals; by Angela Kelly and Lucy Price.  The well put together an outfit does not steal 'Rachel's Thunder' and at the same time makes the Queen look unique.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

Camilla, the step-mother of Prince Harry and now, mother-in-law of Meghan Markle went for a pale pink color and an elaborate hat. She wore an asymmetrical pink colored dress coat by the designer Anna Valentine and a similar colored feathery hat by Philip Treacy. The choice of color seemed to be the most appropriate given the romantic occasion and the spring-meets-summer vibe.  She topped it up with the 5 layered pearl necklace and a clutch.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge

Being one of the most loved British women for her sense of style and generosity, Kate very well understated herself for the wedding going for her trustworthy choice - Alexander McQueen; yellow coat-dress, a floral hat by Philip Treacy and heels by Jimmy Choo. She very smartly made fashion choices which kept her safe from any scrutiny whilst keeping the limelight on the bride herself.

Beatrice, Princess of York

The 29 years old princess has broken many a royal dressing protocol in the past, one of the most prominent being her 'way-too-big' of a hat at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding at 2011. However, this time she played safe at cousin Harry's wedding by wearing a Roskanda Viola dress in the shade Turquoise studded with several beads and translucent long fluffy sleeves pairing it up with a headpiece by Stephen Jones and heels.  The over-all outfit made her look feminine and fresh due to her color choices. 

Eugenie, Princess of York

On the other hand, Princess Eugenie went for a muted color, powder blue along with a matching pillbox hat and silver Valentino shoes and beige colored handbag. Both the sisters playing it safe unlike their previous public appearances as it was a big "no-no" to steal the spotlight from the newly-weds in the royal household.  

Who Wore What: A-List Celebrity Pals

Oprah Winfrey

The American Media Propetior, Oprah Winfrey was on the guest list amongst many others for the Royal Wedding. On the day before the wedding she posted a video on social media admitting her outfit mishap, the former dress being too white which underwent a last-minute change with her showing up in two-tier dress with lace borders by Stella McCartney, a dramatic Philip Treacy hat which underwent a make-over by adding new feathersclutch, and same colored stilettos.

Victoria Beckham

The 44-year-old fashion designer Victoria Beckham looked poise, chic and feminine wearing a midi-dress in the color navy blue with bright orange colored stilettos and a fascinator. The dress belonged to her own label looking quite similar to the one she wore previously on William and Kate's wedding in 2011. The dark color of the dress did make her look elegant however, it’s a questionable choice given the wedding was held in spring-summer season and the occasion to be a romantic one. A lighter color palette for her dress and/or floral patterns would be a better choice for the event.  Nevertheless, her color choice complimented her husband's attire and both looked great together. 

Serena Williams

The tennis star and Duchess of Sussex first met at the Direct TV's Celebrity Beach Bowl and their friendship blossomed each time Meghan cheered, congratulated Serena for her back to back tennis wins. Now, it was time for Serena to support Meghan at her wedding. The gorgeous athlete wore a pink dress by Versace matching stilettos and a gorgeous fascinator which if I am not wrong, made her look like a magical unicorn for the wedding ceremony. Adding details to her outfit was her all-time-famous small braids pulled into an infinite looking long ponytail of rope twists and minimalist accessories to adorn her hands and a neckpiece. For the night time events, she shifted a floral gown with sneakers leaving everyone in an awe.

Amal Clooney

Being one of the most searched outfits on the royal wedding also means that she's best dressed, right? Amal Clooney, a barrister specializing in human rights and international law, wore a streamlined mustard color, cap-sleeved midi dress by Stella Macartney along with a pair of gold stilettos, a bright yellow hat, and a clutch. The color choice of the dress was apt for the ceremony, the yellow screaming out summer and also a color of pure joy! (All the smiley faces are bright yellow!?) 

Priyanka Chopra

Ever since their meeting; the Bollywood diva, Priyanka Chopra, and Meghan Markle at the annual ELLE women in television dinner they have hit it off quite well; supporting each other time and again. PC attending the royal wedding was inevitable. The former miss world slayed both her morning wedding ceremony look and the evening reception look. For the wedding, she wore a lavender Vivienne Westwood suit and topped it up with Philip Treacy hat along with a clutch and gorgeous pair of lavender stilettos. For the evening reception, she underwent a complete makeover with a sparkling Dior full-length gown, diamond studded earrings, and a silver purse. The actress turned heads at every step.

All the ladies followed the royal dressing etiquettes by upholding a tradition of wearing outfits designed by British fashion houses like Vivienne Westwood, Stella Macartney, and Alexander McQueen whilst being effortlessly stylish. On the other hand, Philips Treacy ruled the hats and fascinators section. No matter the fashion choices, all the ladies looked their absolute best at the event making it hard to choose a favorite or 'best-dressed'.
