Andy Carroll and bride Billi Mucklow host Coachella-style wedding party

Billi Mucklow was in great spirits on Monday as she and her new husband Andy Carroll hosted a Coachella-themed wedding celebration, following on from their romantic nuptials the previous day.

The couple had earlier tied the knot at the Four Seasons in Hampshire on Sunday – just days after the sportsman’s raucous antics in Dubai left the future of their relationship clouded in uncertainty. 

New bride Billi swapped her flowing wedding gown for a white feathered mini dress and silver cowboy boots as she let her hair down and danced with her husband for the second day of their wedding festivities at a festival style bash dubbed ‘Carroll Chella’.

Red, white, and blue were the call of the day for the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

So after wearing a red coat to Cardiff Castle, and standing side-by-side with Prince William, wearing blue, there was really only one option for Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, for the Platinum Party at Buckingham Palace.

Yep, Kate went for white – or cream, to be exact – for the mega event celebrating the Queen.

If you saw her look and wanted to know all the details, don’t worry – we’re here to help.

The dress (yep, it’s a dress, not a jacket and skirt) is from Self Portrait, and is made with boucle, chiffon, and fine lace for an interesting mix of textures.

It’s got a long-sleeved top section, that creates the effect of a wraparound jacket, then a flowy pleated midi skirt, with a

The Platinum Jubilee weekend was full of memorable fashion, from the Queen’s pearl-embellished Trooping the Color outfit to Prince Louis’ little sailor suit.

Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations were full of lavish pageantry to mark the British monarch’s 70-year-reign. And with the packed schedule of events, which included a tribute service at St. Paul’s Cathedral and a concert at Buckingham Palace, came many fashion highlights. Members of the Royal Family were seen throughout the four-day weekend dressed in soft color palettes, structured silhouettes and of course, elaborate fascinators.

Elegance Met Eccentricity In Celeste’s Dior Platinum Jubilee Party Dress

What does one wear to serenade the Queen, her nation and Paddington Bear? It’s a fashion conundrum Celeste had to ponder ahead of the Party at the Palace on 4 June. The British-Jamaican soul singer’s first port of call was Dior, a house synonymous with modern femininity and the classic elegance the occasion called for. Working with creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, she landed on a red pleated dress from the autumn/winter 2022 collection owing to its quiet poeticism. “To me, this dress is the rose petal – the fabric softly reminds you it’s there, but it doesn’t wear me. I feel like myself, it is like perfume on the skin,” says the 28-year-old, who sang Louis Armstrong’s 1960s classic “What A Wonderful World” for her Platinum Jubilee performance.

Celeste’s relationship with Dior goes beyond the pomp and circumstances the royal celebration called for. She performed underneath feminist banners at
