Royal Wedding: Most elegant and attractive guests - the results

10 MAY 2011

The royal wedding got the world talking. And everyone had their own opinion about which of the guests looked the best or what was the high point of the day. 

We wanted to know what our readers had to say, and asked them to vote on who they thought trumped in the style stakes as well as their favourite moments.

And you were eager to make your opinions known, clicking in your thousands. By the close more than 30,000 votes had been cast.

Most elegant guest

While the radiant bride was obviously the centre of attention, our readers also had eyes for Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco.

The North African beauty - dressed in a pale pink and gold kaftan, the traditional clothing of her native country - easily triumphed in our most elegant woman competition, gaining 55 percent of our readers' votes.



Pippa Middleton won the nation's heart as she supported her sister throughout the day. She also captured our readers' attentions, coming in second.

The battle for third place was closely fought with Charlene Wittstock - who is due to marry Prince Albert of Monaco this July - and Princess Letizia neck and neck most of the way.

In the end Charlene's grey-blue structured coat-dress won by one percent leaving the Spanish princess to take fourth place in her dusky pink gown.

Princess Victoria of Sweden came in fifth, looking lovely in a long-sleeved peach Elie Saab creation.

Most attractive man

Not only was he best man to the groom, Prince Harry was a clear best man to our readers, winning the title of most attractive male guest by 43 percent.

Despite the mishap with his OBE, David Beckham's dashing looks ensured he came in second place with 20 percent.

Prince Felipe of Spain had a close contender in the form of the bride's brother James Middleton for third place, but won by one percent - gaining ten percent of the votes.

Australian swimmer and friend of the groom Ian Thorpe beat a host of attractive males to the fifth position.

Top hat

April 29 cemented hats as a future fashion essential and our readers felt Zara Phillips - who is due to marry in July - paved the way coming in first with just under a quarter of the votes.

Princess Letizia's pale pink hat ensured she was a close second with 18 percent, followed by Princess Maxima of the Netherlands in third place with seven percent.

The Duchess' mother Carole Middleton also made a favourable impression in the style stakes at fourth place leaving the fifth place to Charlene Wittstock's elegant creation.

Favourite moment

And the votes would not be complete without our readers' best moments. A clear favourite was William's admiration of Kate - with the words "You look beautiful" - as she approached the altar, garnering half of your total votes.


The couple's spontaneous, joyful drive in the Aston Martin came in second place followed by their touching kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
