KATE Middleton, Prince William and children Charlotte and George will all be pulling out their best occasion wear to watch Pippa Middleton walk down the aisle.
And while we know the world will go into a total frenzy about what the royal family are wearing, little sister Pippa’s wedding dress will most surely be the star of the show.
Especially as an Ann Summers’ designer is working their magic.
According to Daily Star sources, the brunette, who is marrying James Mathews, has hired Giles Deacon – who has previously designed underwear for the sexy lingerie brand – to make the wedding dress of her dreams.

Wanting something both elegant and classy, it’s thought the 33 year old wanted something with a little bit of edge for her wedding day.
An insider told the paper: “Pippa wanted something elegant and classic, but with a bit of edge and a small twist to reflect her personality. She will look absolutely beautiful.”
It’s also believed Pippa’s dress is costing around £40,000. Not your average cost of a wedding dress that’s for sure.
Giles – who hasn’t been confirmed as the designer – is known for his dramatic and beautiful couture designs.

He’s also designed a wedding dress for Abbey Clancy and red carpet gowns for the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker and Cate Blanchett.
It’s thought Pippa has held many design meetings with designers ahead of her big day with Spencer Matthews’ brother.
There’s been speculation over whether the Queen will attend Pippa’s day as it seems unlikely the royal will make it.
Hundreds of guests will descend on the village of Englefield, in Berkshire, for what looks set to be the wedding of the year.

Given their family connection, it seems likely Pippa will have extended an invitation to the monarch.
While it’s not certain, Queen Elizabeth very rarely attends weddings and funerals, other than for royal engagements. But it is not unheard of for the Queen to break her own rules from time to time.
