You wouldn’t be surprised if we told you Kate Middleton’s & Other Stories dress is already sold out, or that her sister Pippa won over the fashion crowd with her Kate Spade New York number at Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding. But there’s a new stylish woman to watch running around in these circles, and it’s French financial expert Alizee Thevenet, aka James Middleton’s girlfriend.
Kate and Pippa’s brother attended the May 18 nuptials of Lady Gabriella and Thomas Kingston at Windsor Castle, and Alizee was right by his side in a paisley-print wrap midi dress with a pleated skirt and flutter sleeves. We might’ve skipped right by it on H&M’s site, where it retailed for $70, and that’s because, at first glance, it doesn’t look like your typical wedding guest dress.
You may not immediately picture it with a sophisticated Summer hat, suede court shoes, and a gold and ivory box clutch, like Alizee wore it. But now we’ve got a whole new idea for our next wedding, and it looks a lot like this. We aren’t the only ones, apparently. The look is now going for a sweet $115 on eBay. Read on to see how lovely Alizee looked by James’s side, then get behind the very notion that we’re selling here: paisley can be quite romantic on a Spring or Summer afternoon.
