LONDON (AP) — Style icon Pippa Middleton took a front row seat as one of her favorite designers, Temperley London, unveiled its Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week.

The catwalk show Monday at the British Museum launched elegantly glamorous designs inspired by the silver screen.

The 28-year-old Middleton wore a long emerald green dress designed by Alice Temperley to the April 29 royal wedding reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate her older sister Kate's marriage to Prince William.

The gown, together with the Alexander McQueen bridesmaid dress she wore at the wedding ceremony, propelled Pippa into the world's fashion spotlight.

Others in the audience included actress Rosario Dawson and socialite Peaches Geldof.
