The Royal Wedding: Best and Worst Dressed

The Best 

 Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel of Sweden

John Bercow and Sally Bercow

Some argued that Sally Bercow's cleavage was a bit too much but from this picture the first thing I notice is her lovely lace dress not her cleavage.

The daughters of Earl Spencer sit in the pews at Westminster Abbey.

 Zara Phillips

 Last but not least, Hollywood power couple David and Victoria Beckham. 

He wore a smart morning suit by Ralph Lauren Purple Label, she wore a dress from her own collection, specially-made Louboutins, and a Philip Treacy hat. 

Update: Here are some fashionable guests that I had originally missed
Joss Stone 

The singer chose to ditch her usual hippie and bohemian attire for a much more appropriate and flattering look. She appears to be in quite a good mood in this particular picture.

Princess Letizia of Asturias

I actually love what she's wearing but I originally couldn't find a decent photo of her standing alone.

The Duchess of Cornwall 
representing the older but still fashionable crowd.

Carole Middleton
How could I forget the bride's mother ? 

I'm sure she was just as nervous as her daughter - no one wants to embarrass the royal family. She chose to dress classic and understated but she appears to have gotten the last laugh.
Carole wore a design from Catherine Walker who happened to be one of the most important women in Princess Diana’s life. She died of breast cancer in September last year, but the label she founded lives on.

The Worst (and most Comical)

Princess Eugenie of York in Vivienne Westwood and Princess Beatrice of York in Valentino haute couture.

These two together looked comical but I think Princess Beatrice could have made the best dressed list if she wore a different hat. While Philip Treacy designs many gorgeous couture hats (many worn by Lady Gaga) I personally think that the hat takes away from her face and doesn't compliment her beautiful outfit but most importantly trying to make a ridiculous statement like this has no place in a royal wedding - or any wedding for that matter.
