Recap of the Beautiful Royal Wedding of William and Catherine (The Fashion)

Now that Miss Catherine's mysterious wedding gown has been revealed, let us find out how others dressed up for the Royal Wedding such as The Queen, Princess Camilla, Carole Middleton, and the wedding party. How do you like their hats and fascinators? 

Queen Elizabeth II chose an Angela Kelly single crepe wool primrose dress with hand-sewn beading at the neck in the shape of sun rays. Pinned to her matching double crepe wool tailored primrose coat was Queen Mary's True Lovers Knot diamond brooch. Her hat with silk roses -- also designed by Angela Kelly -- was a lovely addition to her outfit. Ladylike accessories like white gloves, pearl necklace and white handbag added a timeless elegance. - AOL Royal Wedding

Philippa Middleton, Kate's younger sister and maid of honor, arrived at Westminster Abbey on Friday wearing a sleek ivory satin dress with a crepe cowl neckline by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. - AOL Royal Wedding

Philippa Middleton, the maid of honor, changed into an emerald green Temperley London gown with a plunging neckline and sparkly embellishments. She paired the jewel-toned stunner with Aruna Seth's "Lynn" sandal, a silver strappy shoe with rhinestone accents. - AOL Royal Wedding
The cheerful bridesmaid and page boys

The young Bridesmaids’ dresses were designed by childrenswear designer Nicki Macfarlane to echo the Bride’s dress.
The Bridesmaids’ dresses have been created using the same fabrics as the Bride’s dress.  The ballerina-length, full, box pleated skirt gives the dresses a sculptural quality, with the layering of ivory over white satin gazar adding depth of colour.  They have all been hand-finished with delicate English Cluny lace, which is visible under the skirts, and four layers of net underskirt.  The puff sleeves and neckline are trimmed with the same English lace as the Bride’s underskirt. The backs have been finished with the same button detail.
The sashes are made of pale gold, wild silk, which is tucked at the front and tied at the back in a sumptuous bow.

The Pages are wearing a uniform in the style of that worn by a Foot Guards officer at the time of the Regency (the 1820s). The Pages will wear a gold and crimson sash (with tassel) around their waists. - Official Royal Wedding Website
