This isn’t just a case of twinsies, it’s triplet-ies! Kate, Camilla and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, were all dressed in light (and in Kate’s case, white) shades for yesterday’s Order of the Garter ceremony. These royals really do have a thing for wearing white—but then again, you know they don’t have such pedestrian concerns as spilling coffee, sitting in something sticky or any other menial task that would ruin their pristine attire. Of course, we’ve seen this particular white item on Kate before: it’s the Alexander McQueen coat she wore to last year’s Trooping the Colour. On top, Kate had on a cream hat by Jane Corbett, who also designed the very similar pastel-blue hat she wore the day before. (At, coincidentally, this year’s Trooping the Colour.) And while we can’t see what dress Kate has on underneath her McQueen topper, all guesses point to the white Reiss Peacock dress she wore to last year’s Epsom Derby. Read more »

Kate looks ravishing in all-white at the Order of the Garter and are Camilla and Sophie playing twinsies with her?
While we expected Kate would opt for a British designer for Trooping the Colour (the annual parade that celebrates the Queen’s birthday), we were more than happily surprised to see her dressed in Canadian designer Erdem for the big day. This isn’t the first time Kate’s worn Erdem either: during the royal couple’s Canadian tour, she wore the designer twice.

Kate attends the Queen’s garden party in a dress she’s worn before but her fancy new hat makes all the difference
While Kate Middleton has been known to recycle outfits and accessories (which, in our opinion, is how all princesses should act—especially those of the self-proclaimed pop culture variety) we’ve never seen her wear the same dress at back-to-back royal events. But there’s a first time for everything, and that time was yesterday at the Queen‘s garden party at Buckingham Palace. Kate wore the pastel-pink pleated Emilia Wickstead dress we saw earlier in the month at the Sovereign’s luncheon but left her Prada shoes at home, opting instead for her favourite pair of taupe L.K.Bennett pumps. Also notable? That hat! If there was ever a reason to want an invite to a royal garden party, Kate’s straw and lace hat by Jane Corbett is it. Read more »
One week after the fairytale wedding to end all fairytale weddings, we’ve still got a serious case of royal fever. We can’t get enough of the gossip around the royal couple (or lack thereof because it seems that they are flawless!), and we have a feeling you can’t either. We hope this will provide a cure. If only for a little while…
A longstanding and decidedly British tradition is donning all kinds of extravagant headwear to nuptials⎯a tradition the royal family has long followed.
Catering to both the fashion crowd as well as royalty is designer and milliner Philip Treacy, a former protégé of Isabella Blow, and frequent collaborator of the late Alexander McQueen⎯besides virtually every female royal, his pieces have sat on the heads of Lady Gaga, SJP, Grace Jones and Daphne Guinness.
