Designers all over the world would love to get their pieces on Pippa and Kate Middleton. Alice Temperley has—more than a few times over. “I’m flattered,” she told of being a royal go-to at the New York party for True British, a new book that celebrates the 10th anniversary of her London label. “They’re the most humble, down-to-earth people I’ve ever dressed. They’re completely easy and wonderful to work with, and they look great in the clothes. They know exactly what they like.” However, the global response—including winning Designer of the Year at the Hollywood Style Awards this week—is something she didn’t anticipate. “When I was dressing them I had no idea what a reaction the world would have,” she confessed. “I hope that they always get the support that they deserve because they are truly good girls.” See some of Temperley’s designs worn on the Middletons in the gallery.
