After exchanging her vows in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder gown by Peter Pilotto that showed off her surgery scars, Princess Eugenie slipped on — dare we say — an even more stunning dress for her evening reception.
While the first gown’s extravagance and hidden meanings sewn onto its fabric may be hard to top, it seems as if the royal managed to do so in a blush Zac Posen number.
According to the Palace, the showstopper of a dress was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the countryside. Meanwhile, it’s light pink shade resembles “the blush of an English rose.” Posen was specifically drawn to the White Rose of York.

The pleated gown even has the White Rose of York embroidered on the shoulder and back, which secures the cape.
“It was an incredible honor to create this dress for HRH Princess Eugenie on her wedding day,” the designer said of the dress per Town & Country. “Her grace, elegance and strength perfectly embody everything I could hope for in a woman wearing our design.”
Eugenie also swapped out her tiara for a hair slide belonging to the Queen, which was originally commissioned by William IV in 1830 for Queen Adelaide. She paired the historical jewels with diamond and emerald drop earrings that were gifted by her now-husband, Jack Brooksbank.
Though Eugenie’s Zac Posen dress was a custom creation, us commoners can purchase a similar version from the designer. Start saving, stat!
