CATHERINE WHO? OTHER ROYAL WEDDING GUESTS PUT ON STYLE FOR BIG DAY Soap Queen Outshines Duchess to Win Fashion Crown


Byline: LAUREN CROOKS

FASHION experts crowned soap queen Katherine Kelly the winner at Edinburgh's royal wedding yesterday.

She even outshone the more famous Catherine on the guest list - Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

The 31-year-old Corrie star led an celebrity parade who shone in the sun on the Royal Mile as Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips married rugby player Mike Tindall.

Katherine is usually seen in crop tops and tracksuits playing Rovers barmaid Becky McDonald. But Sunday Mail stylist Lindsay Campbell gave her full marks for her fantastic wide-brimmed orange hat and bag, which she matched with a light peach one-shoulder dress.

Advertising and celebrity stylist Lindsay, who has worked with Ultimo and John Lewis, said the former Kate Middleton, hailed as the Royal Family's new style icon, looked a little drab by comparison.

She said: "Katherine was my clear winner for the whole day. It's shocking to say it but she even stole the show from the bride and Kate Middleton.

"The 70s-style dress, with its billowing fabric and brilliant one-shoulder, was so on trend. I love how she kept with the 70s feel and went for a massive hat in bold orange with matching clutch.

"The zing of the colour was amazing.

If she hadn't done that, she could have been in huge bother as it could have looked like a wedding dress."

Katherine, an old pal of groom Mike Tindall, was one of a string of female celebrity guests.

They included Saturdays singer Una Healy, TV presenter Natalie Pinkham, Sky Sports News presenter Kirsty Gallacher and Olympic gold medallist skeleton racer Amy Williams.

Lindsay, 27, said: "I loved Una's hat but her dress was not a hit. It looked a little cheap, as did the bag. The floral detail just didn't work and the length wasn't right.

"Natalie's outfit was stunning, very flattering and very subtly accented.

"Kirsty had a very nice print on her dress and I loved her fascinator. The colour was bold and fun."

One big trend was nude shoes, which Lindsay says lengthen legs. She said: "Una was one of of several who really wore the nude shoe look well."

But there were disasters too.
