Zac Posen shares unseen photo of Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress and says she knocked his socks off

Designer Zac Posen has shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the wedding dress he designed for Princess Eugenie.

Princess Eugenie, 29, wore the stunning peach-hued gown to her evening reception last October, after opting for a white low-back dress by Peter Pilotto for her church wedding to Jack Brooksbank, 33.

And on Sunday, American fashion designer Zac posted an unseen photo of the wedding dress fitting, paying tribute to Eugenie, who he described as possessing 'natural elegance and a heart of gold'.

'This last year I got to know a young lady who possessed natural elegance, a heart of gold and sophisticated humor. 

'My studio and I had the honor (and the best time) collaborating with her on her special gown. Best of all she is dedicated to using her privilege to help our world and its people with her project The Anti-slavery collective'. 

Meanwhile Eugenie posted a picture of the wedding reception to her own Instagram account, admitting: 'My 28th year was the best one yet. Now to being 29...Thank you for all the birthday wishes.'

Last October Princess Eugenie married tequila executive Jack Brooksbank in a lavish ceremony at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, who is ninth in line to the British throne, wore two dresses on the lavish day, where security reportedly cost £2million alone.

Eugenie arrived at the church wearing a V-neck dress made from a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend by British designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, estimated at £200,000, and a diamond and emerald encrusted tiara.

Her bridal gown, designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, was created with a low back at Eugenie’s request to show a long scar from a procedure to correct scoliosis – curvature of the spine – when she was 12. 

Arriving at the evening reception, Eugenie changed into a blush-coloured evening gown inspired by Grace Kelly in the 1955 film To Catch a Thief, which is currently on display alongside her first wedding dress at Windsor Castle.

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, attended the wedding, along with other senior royals.

Jack proposed to Eugenie during a holiday trip to Nicaragua in Central America, seven years after they first met.
