Last night Pippa attended a VIP dinner in London, which was jointly held by Vanity Fair magazine and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. (For those who aren’t in the know, Pippa is a contributor to Vanity Fair.) The party celebrated the gallery’s new building space in Kensington Gardens. It was a star-studded event, with Jemima Khan, Boris Johnson, George Osbourne and Roman Abramovich all joining Pippa at the party.
However, it was definitely Pippa who stole the show! Miss Middleton wore a vibrant blue silk shift dress by designer Matthew Williamson. The dress featured teal and coral hand-dyed ostrich feathers and the plunging neckline was embellished with crystals. (Click for pictures of Pippa )
A look at the Matthew Williamson feather dress:
Here’s a look at the dress and modelled (right) for MW Daily (Matthew Williams’ style blog)
The Matthew Williamson feather dress retails at a whopping £2,495 and is described on the designer’s website as follows:
Dance the night away in this cocktail dress. The silk shift features chevron-pattern silver beads at the hips, before finishing in a flourish of hand-dyed ostrich feathers, where teal blue melts into peach tones. The scoop neckline is highlighted with twists of silver beads encircling teal ribbon, punctuated with sapphire Swarovski crystals and a trim of tiny silver crystals. The dress is available in other colours. // The dress fastens with a concealed zip at the centre back and hook-and-eye fastening at the neckline.

And a final quote from the MW Daily article:
THIS DRESS WAS MADE for dancing. The atelier worked in new, innovative ways to make it a stand-out statement, with each dress taking 8 days to be hand-finished. The skirt debuts fluorescent ostrich feathers – hand-dyed in London – a punch of fun against the teal blue, showcased as you spin. 3.5 metres of plumes are hand-stitched to the skirt. // Silver beads in chevron shapes hark back to the chevron weaves of traditional Nomad dress, as does the woven lace around the neckline. But this is a flirty, fresh take on it all. From the old to the very new…
Back to Pippa’s outfit now: Pippa accessorised her Matthew Williamson dress with grey-taupe suede clutch bag by Emmy Shoes and matching teal suede shoes by the same designer.
