SHE has Britain’s most photographed bottom thanks to an iconic wedding snap taken at sister Kate Middleton’s marriage to Prince William.
One year on and another wedding but this time the world’s attention is firmly on Pippa Middleton’s head – thanks to one Hampshire designer.
Madeleine O’Mahony from Fordingbridge is celebrating after designing the dramatic hat Pippa wore at a friend’s wedding.
Madeleine was thrilled when Pippa asked to hire one of her pieces for the wedding in Sussex.
And now the 28-year-old designer, who worked for famed milliner Vivien Sheriff, can’t believe her creation has hit the headlines.
Pippa wore the headgear when she accompanied her sister Kate and Prince William to the wedding of schoolfriend Hannah Gillingham on Saturday.
The dramatic fascinator covered in golden butterflies by Madeleine Millinery was teamed it with a gold sequinned dress designed by Dannii Minogue’s label and an elegant dark coat with a royal blue lining.
Madeleine, who studied fashion at Winchester School of Art, said: “I’m trying to grow my business and this should certainly help.”
