It seems that the world is embracing Pippa Middleton mania in the wake of Friday's rAlice Temperley has spoken out on having the honour of designing that gorgeous green reception dress.

The youngest Middleton sister chose the British designer to create her eveningwear, with the result being this beautiful sweeping emerald gown, which she teamed with a half-up half-down 'do and a silver clutch.

"I was honoured that Ms Pippa Middleton asked us to design her dress for the royal wedding evening reception," the designer told Vogue. "Pippa is a beautiful young woman and a delight to work with. She looked incredible and the green colour looks great on her skin tone."

And it seems that like her older sibling, Pippa also wanted to be heavily involved with the design process.

"Pippa came into our store in Colville Mews and she fell in love with the Long Arabia dress," the designer added.

"We chose a new colour and reworked it with the lovely new back - incorporating new artwork panels with crystals, gold and silver details.

"We had about four fittings in our private bridal suite in the Mews. We decided on the colour and artwork panels together."
