Over the weekend, Pippa Middleton wore an Alice Temperley dress to a society wedding that apparently didn't sit well with Liz Jones at the Daily Mail. The critique starts out, "Where do I begin with the wrongness of this frock? Well, it needed a jolly good iron, for starters. The colour, a sort of dentures salmon, is hideous." The word "ghastly" is used twice, along with the mention of "leg o' mutton sleeves." [Daily Mail UK]
