We've known for a long time that Prince George would be christened in a replica of a christening gown made for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, circa 1841. But what about his mother? The duchess of Cambridge picked Alexander McQueen for the christening ceremony on Wednesday at the Chapel Royal in Saint James's Palace. She wore an ivory skirt suit with a peplumed jacket with a ruffle across the front from McQueen (the label that also made her wedding gown). With it, she wore a fascinator headpiece by milliner Jane Taylor and platform pumps by L.K. Bennett of London. [Vanity Fair] [Telegraph]
