When Princess Eugenie walked down the aisle at her royal wedding on Friday, Oct. 12, we didn’t think she could be more stunning. But, later that night, the 28-year-old royal wowed in a second wedding dress at her reception and the gown literally took our breath away!
The day after Eugenie tied the knot with Jack Brooksbank, a photograph taken by Alex Bramhall of the newlyweds at their royal wedding reception was posted to the royal family’s official Instagram account with the caption, “Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are pictured at Royal Lodge, Windsor, ahead of a private dinner on their Wedding Day.”
Though royal fans around the world loved Eugenie’s Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos ceremony gown, people seemed to adore her Zac Posen reception dress even more. “She looks so beautiful in that dress,” one fan commented on the royal family’s Instagram pic of Eugenie with another person similarly adding, “NOW THAT’S A DRESS!!!”
According to People, Eugenie’s gorgeous second dress was created to look like the blush color of an English rose and the White Rose of York. The frock — made of plissé silk fabric — also subtly featured an image of the White Rose of York on both the shoulder and back as a sweet nod to Eugenie’s royal family.
Eugenie’s decision to change into a second wedding dress for her nighttime reception follows royal tradition as brides Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton did the same before her at their May 2018 and April 2011 weddings, respectively.
This past May, Meghan — who just announced she’s pregnant with her first baby! — changed into a dress designed by Stella McCartney for her evening party. And, back in 2011, Kate donned a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown for her reception.
