New styles for a new collection! As Temperley Bridal‘s largest line-up to date, Iris 2014/15 boasts a well-rounded tally of 14 bridal looks with daring new silhouettes that celebrate the female form and radiate with the fine craftsmanship that the English brand is known for. ”There is a full range of different styles, for different body shapes in Iris, all designed with the aesthetic I believe in; elegant, feminine, ethereal and timeless,” designer Alice Temperley MBE said in a statement. “Each dress has to be the perfect blend of functionality and fantasy.” In doing so, Temperley covered unfamiliar ground, revealing looks that break free from traditional wedding gowns, including a ’70s-inspired jumpsuit, a voluminous evening swing coat with ruffled silk organza roses and petals, and a floor-length chiffon kaftan.

It’s not common that we see party girl Pippa Middleton in an eye-popping pattern like the Alice by Temperley ikat-printed pants she wore to a club in London last week. This royal-in-law usually prefers stripes, tweeds, and color-blocking over something as eye-catching as these 100% silk trousers, though we’re loving the deviation from her norm. And you can scoop ‘em up, too: Find the bottoms for $395 at temperleylondon.com. The print is also available in a maxi dress style, available for $530 at shopbop.com.

Introducing eight new options in for the spring 2014 collection, Alice Temperley of Temperley London focused on the the most “timeless, feminine and ethereal,” brides. Featuring hand-crafted touches like embroidery and beadwork, the designs ranged from powerful draped columns like the Crystal Mirage dress (left) to the romantic-from-every-angle Dorothy (right), which featured peek-a-boo lace. Among the boldest surprises: separates! Brides seeking something old and new have the Heather Blouse and Petunia Skirt (center) to look forward to wearing down the aisle.

Kate Middleton, you never fail to surprise us! The royal is a Master of Rewears, and today she gave us another reason why with the re-appearance of her black lace Temperley gown. Catherine first wore the look on the eve of her 30th birthday 10 months ago—or 305 days, to be exact—for the War Horse premiere in London, and chose the black-tie style again today for a dinner hosted at Middle Temple Hall in London in support of the University of St. Andrews, the school she and Prince William attended (and where they met). We love how she added a pop of color with her red Alexander McQueen box clutch, just enough to make it different. And, a word for brides-to-be, this look could be yours—designer Alice Temperley debuted an all-white version at her last bridal show, which will be available for Fall 2013 weddings. Click through the gallery to see more of her most memorable looks.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge rarely deviates from her solid-colors-from-solid-designers modus operandi and that’s what we’ve grown to love about the new royal—just look at our extensive and somewhat exhuasting coverage of her every fashion move. However, we’re seeing a shift: She’s starting to integrate more and more floral embellishments into her choices, like the Alice by Temperley dress she wore to yesterday’s reception for Olympic and Paralympic Team Great Britain medal winners at Buckingham Palace. The number is a custom design by the British designer, and includes embroidered rose and gold details on sheer black fabric. Tell us, what do you think about this look: Love it or leave it?

When it comes to ethereal lace designs, it’s hard to top Temperley— just ask the Middleton sisters. And though it may seem that the Duchess was a source for the fall 2013 collection of mostly long-sleeve gowns, the label known for its feminine fabrics and romantic silhouettes drew inspiration from Hollywood and was largely influenced by Grace Kelly, the ’50s and film noir screen sirens. Accordingly, the collection, which designer Alice Temperley dubbed “Florence,” featured delicate embellishment, hand-cut flowers, elegant draping and embroidery. Check out all of the looks in the gallery.
Here’s a new way to look like a princess on your wedding day! Temperley Bridal just showed its fall 2013 collection during Bridal Fashion Week and the lineup included this long-sleeve lace gown—a dead ringer for the style Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore on the red carpet at January’s War Horse premiere in London. With its plunging neckline, sleek silhouette and cinched waist, any bride would look like royalty in this stunner, don’t you think?
