Sarah Ferguson, widely referred to as Fergie and today as Mother of the Bride, arrived to her daughter Princess Eugenie's wedding in a perfectly tailored green dress. The long sleeve, short length dress is ultra-flattering thanks to its wrap detail, finished with a satin lapel. It was designed by Emma Louise, a local Ascot designer. For a little added flair, the dress has a subdued train, which whipped up delightfully on this windy London day.
She paired the dress with a show-stopping wide-brim green hat to match, complete with a gilded bow, designed by milliner Jess Collett. Twitter is full of references to Fergie taking flight thanks to that major bow and Storm Callum in full effect.
The star jewelry piece in her ensemble is a pair of emerald and diamond drop earrings, which mirror the stunning emerald and diamond crown her daughter Eugenie donned down the aisle. Ferguson also wore the brown leather clutch bag that her own mother carried when she wed Prince Andrew at her own royal wedding in 1986. Her slingback embossed leather heels coordinate with her bag.
Alas, Fergie's own marriage was not to last. She and Prince Andrew dated for one year before marrying in the mid-1980s and divorced in 1996, after a decade of marriage. The two remained successful co-parents to their daughters Eugenie and Beatrice and reportedly still live together.
“I’m in and out all the time, and he’s in and out all the time,” Fergie said in an interview in 2016 for an Australian radio show, according to People.com. “And no, we’re not married. We’re very happy with the way things are.”
But back to that look, it's a standout Mother of the Bride moment, classic and well-tailored with just the right amount of nostalgia. But more than that, Fergie looks utterly thrilled to be there.
