The royal wedding day has finally arrived, and the guests' beauty looks do not disappoint. Unlike past royal weddings, this day brings together actors, actresses, influential people from the worlds of charity and sport and members of the royal family—which, thankfully, makes for a visually rich and eclectic mix of looks for us to take inspiration from. It's being dubbed the "most modern royal wedding."
The dress code includes hats, which isn't the easiest accessory to wear, especially as the guests are in front of the nation's glare as they make the walk to St George's Chapel. The pressure is on.
Do you go for hair down or work an updo that doesn't detract from the hat or fascinator? Then there is the decision of makeup. Do you go neutral and let the accessory do all the talking (like Pippa Middleton) or be bold and go for a jaunty colour clash à la Amal Clooney? Decisions, decisions.
Below you'll find all the best wedding guest beauty and grooming looks. Enjoy.
There is so much that we love about the Queen's wedding day look. For starters, she's in hot-right-now yellow, which she has confidently paired with a bold red lip. Oh, and with her dedication to accessories, we wonder whether she is channelling her inner Anna Dello Russo.
Beckham pairs her navy net-adorned hat with an understated ponytail. Her makeup is beautifully understated with her signature soft smoky eye and nude lip. We're also always obsessed with her straight brows.
Williams wears her hair pulled back from her face to let her fascinator and glowing complexion take centre stage (or should that be court?).
Blaquier, wife of Polo player Nacho Figueras, shows how to do the bushy brow look right. When wearing an oversized hat like this, keeping your hairstyle simple is crucial.
Soft pink lips and blush go beautifully with Oprah's blush-hued Stella McCartney dress (which the design team made overnight!).
How gorgeous does Amal Clooney look? The striking combination of her canary-yellow Stella McCartney dress against her red lip is a total winner.
Mother of the bride Doria Ragland's makeup look wasn't a million miles away from her daughter's. A soft smoky eye paired with a glossy lip. Just beautiful.
Elba with his fianceé Dhowre. Her sleek hair offsets her elaborately crafted hat.
Like Oprah, Middleton opts for pink-toned makeup that goes beautifully with her printed The Fold dress and floral headpiece.

Middleton will know only too well how Doria Ragland feels on the momentous day. Middleton got the makeup memo and opted for pink tones, just like her daughter Pippa.
How wonderful does Spencer's makeup look? Her flawless complexion, pillowy pink lips and taupe eye shadow is so effortless.
Actresses Abigail Spencer and Priyanka Chopra arrive at the chapel. Spencer wearing an autumnal red lip and Chopra wearing a soft pink smoky eye.

Mulligan's feather headdress looks subtle against her blonde hair. We love the loose wavy tendrils of hair around her face that keep the look undone yet elegant.
We were expecting something completely outlandish in the hat department, but we're pleasantly surprised by Princess Beatrice's Fiona Graham headband. Thumbs up from us.
