A New Zealand designer has had her gorgeous garments slay two of the year's biggest events. 

Emilia Wickstead pieces were worn not only at the Cannes Film Festival, but at the royal wedding - ensuring eyes from across the globe were on the Kiwi's stunning designs.

Jacinda Barrett, whose husband is Meghan Markle's Suits co-star Gabriel Macht - wore a beautiful burgundy dress by Wickstead to the royal wedding.

And earlier in the week, Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor wore a Wickstead piece to Cannes, turning heads in the red and white candy-striped number.

Vogue has praised Wickstead as being "synonymous with English high-society style", having dressed and created custom dresses for the likes of Kate Middleton on more than one occasion.

She was born in Auckland and lived in New Zealand until she was 14, before she followed her mother Angela to Milan. She is now based in London.

Wickstead is in high demand in Hollywood, having dressed many celebs in the past including Shailene Woodley, Brie Larson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth and many more.
