Breaking tradition: Princess Eugenie’s second wedding dress is NOT what we expected

She didn't go for white!

She completely wowed us with her main dress.

Certainly, and more than 24 hours after the happy couple said ‘I do,’ there’s no denying that Princess Eugenie looked totally incredible on her wedding day on Friday, October 12 at Windsor near London.

And now – finally! – the British royal’s second gown has been revealed. We’re also pretty surprised to see that the 28-year-old broke with tradition by opting for a plush, deep champagne hue rather than anything white or cream.

Snaps captured by official photographer, Alex Bramall, confirm that the full-length gúna is remarkably different to the fab Peter Pilotto creation she wore for the ceremony earlier that day.

The second dress was designed by American Zac Posen and we have to say we ADORE it.

Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank, 32, in front of a host of celebrated guests including the likes of Demi Moore; Cara Delevingne; Naomi Campbell; Robbie Williams; and Holly Valance.

“Zac is said to have been inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside when designing the gown, which features a bias-cut pin-tucked plissé and a blush hue that reflects the colour of an English rose,” reports Hello! magazine.

“Giving a fitting nod to Princess Eugenie’s heritage, Mr Posen took particular inspiration from the White Rose of York,” the publication added.

The same flower was also beautifully embroidered on the shoulder and back of the evening gown. It was made from silk from the British mill, Biddle Sawyer Silk.

Eugenie furthermore wore her hair down in loose waves for the later celebrations (her tresses had been in an up-style for the 11am ceremony), accessorising with a hair slide that belongs to her grandmother, the Queen.
