Prince George's big day is finally here!

The littlest British royal made his first major fashion statement at his christening today, wearing a frilly traditional ivory christening gown created by his great-grandmother's favorite designer, Angela Kelly. But even all that lace plus the adorable chubby cheeks (seriously, this is one cute kid) couldn't overshadow his chic mommy and aunt, who also chose ivory outfits.

The Duchess of Cambridge was glowing as usual in a ruffly Alexander McQueen dress with a peplum top, a swingy ivory skirt and a matching Jane Taylor hat tilted to the side (natch). Pippa Middleton showed up with her proud parents wearing a trapeze coat over a lace dress from the London boutique Suzannah, styled by Suzannah Crabb herself. She also had on a fascinator from Edwina Ibbotson.

Pippa was not among the seven individuals named as godparents to Georgie, but she did participate in the christening ceremony with a reading from St. Luke ch. 18, verses 15-17. (Prince Harry did one from St. John ch. 15, verses 1-5.)

Prince William also looked quite nice for the occasion, wearing a bright blue tie plus a sharp pocket square. But really, Georgie is the star today. Check out photos from the christening at St. James's Palace. Think Georgie looks more like his mum or his dad?
