Long Live McQueen - Royal Wedding Part 2

For the evening celebrations, Catherine Middleton chose another Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown. With a jewel embellished waistband and cropped white mohair cardigan, this look was a lot simpler than her wedding dress.

Here's a sketch of the gown which was worn by Prince Harry's on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy by fashion house Alberta Feretti for the evening celebrations.
At the wedding, Princesses of York, Beatrice and Eugenie wore quite contrasting looks. Staying true to her British roots, Princess Eugenie stood out wearing a bright blue Vivienne Westwood dress with three bows across the front jacket. Choosing to wear Valentino instead of a British designer, Beatrice wore a Valentino Spring 2011 Couture coat and dress. Both girls wore Philip Treacy fascinators.

Crown Princess of Sweden wore a long sleeved, peach Eli Saab dress from his 2011 Spring collection.

Zara Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne arrived with her fiancee rugby player MIke Tindall. She was wearing a monochromatic silver bespoke Paul Costelloe dress with a large black hat.

Carole Middleton, Catherine's mother, wore a light blue Catherine Walker blue wool crepe coatdress with matching satin piping over a light blue silk shantung day dress. Catherine Walker was a favourite designer of the late Princess Diana. Middleton's hat was made by British designer Jane Corbett.

Standing out from the crowd in what one commentator called "the sexiest outfit" of the day, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's wife Miriam Gonzalez Duantez, a spanish attorney, wore a bright ref flower fascinator and figure hugging silver dress with polkadot lace overlay.

British socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson wore head-to-toe bright blue. Wearing a Deborah Milner dress accessorised with matching gloves, Nicholas Kirkwood heels with pearl detailing and a a boat-shaped Philip Treacy fascinator.

Wife of Saudi Prince Al Walid bin Talal, Princess Ameerah Al Taweel, looked stunning in a beautiful custom made Zuhair Murad couture coat dress. Made from satin, the dress was accentuated with silk lace and hand embroidered organza flowers.
