Cannes Red Carpet Top 10

Beyond the foamy curtain of the Côte d’Azur lays the scene of cinema’s annual cult gathering—Cannes, a festival like no other. It is an event that has captivated audiences for the past 67 years with its unique and intoxicating brand of Mediterranean glamour.

Besotted by champagne soaked parties, historic hotels, and delectable French fare, it is a veritable paradise of indulgences for the beautiful, rich, and famous (which is at least what reading Assouline books on the topic will lead you to believe). The level of exclusivity on the Cannes red carpet guarantees that only a negligible percentage of the population will ever be granted access beyond its velvet ropes, which of course only adds to its prestigious reputation.

After three weeks of straight up Kate stalking, it’s nice to know the Duchess of Cambridge can still surprise and delight. On the final night of the Royal Tour, Kate did the black-and-white trend perfectly, wearing Texan-born designer Lela Rose for the first time. Pairing the airy white peplum dress alongside black accessories (suede Jimmy Choo Cosmic pumps and Mulberry Bayswater clutch, check!) is a new thing for the Duchess and pretty modern when you think about it—it wasn’t too long ago that dark accessories were considered a no-go with white dresses. The circular lace trim is also a step away from the typical, providing a peekaboo effect for Kate’s mega-toned upper arms. The black-tie reception was given the Governor-General in honour of the Royals and, capping a day of sightseeing in Canberra.

And we’re off! The royal tour of Australia and New Zealand has officially begun, with Kate, Will and Prince George arriving at Wellington Airport yesterday afternoon. It was our first IRL glimpse of the little prince since his christening last fall and that baby did not disappoint. (Case in point: He already has his own grumpy baby face meme.)

Also in the not disappointing us department was Kate Middleton, whose scarlet-red ensemble was a certainly a nod to Jackie Kennedy’s signature style. The military button coat was by Catherine Walker, who designed many outfits for Princess Diana but we’ve only seen Kate wear her twice before—both times during her tour of Canada in 2011. The coat was paired with a matching red dress and Gina Foster pillbox hat. Its placement is probably what evokes the most comparisons to Jackie O—seriously, if you squint at this Instagram you could mistake it for a photo from the ’60s!—with the hat resting at the crown of Kate’s head, her hair neatly tucked half-up underneath.

Kate Middleton style: Every single flawless look


Kate Middleton Style

Kate Middleton style, from the beginning »

We present your complete guide to everything Kate Middleton/Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge/the Future Queen of England has worn since officially becoming destined for the throne. Since her first appearance alongside Prince William in a cobalt blue Issa wrap dress upon the announcement of their engagement; she’s wowed as the new heir to The People’s Princess throne. Like Diana before her, Kate’s got a way with fashion, which this time around has translated to the best high low mix we’ve ever seen on the celebrity front. Frequently mixing designer pieces with High Street one offs, Kate Middleton’s style is as synonymous with Alexander Mcqueen as it is Topshop. The Duchess is also known for introducing little (or at least lesser) known designer labels to the mainstream, making household names of Erdem, Christopher Kane, LK Bennett and Jenny Packham.

We’ve been following Kate through the stages of her wedding, her inaugural visit to North America (wassup!), and most recently, her pregnancy. It’s safe to say Kate Middleton style is a fixture of this here website, but hey, we don’t need to convince you. Fancy a gander at any and everything she’s outfitted herself in over the past 3 years? It’s all here! Just try to pick a favourite. We dare you.

Out of their cowboy garb, Will and Kate were back into their respective regal wardrobes for one last trip, to the Calgary Zoo and then on to say farewell to the country at the city’s Challenger Rotary. As the 2011 Royal Tour comes to a close, we’re anticipating going through some major Kate withdrawal. If we had to say goodbye to the royal rock stars in any way though, we’re happy to have done it with one last beauty: a scarlet Catherine Walker button down suit dress with pleated full skirt accessorized with the Queen’s diamond maple leaf brooch.

Are you as sad as we are to see the Royals go? Vote after the jump!

For today’s tree planting ceremony in Rideau Hall in Ottawa, Kate donned a beautiful grey Catherine Walker dress with an oversized collar that extended into a deep V at her back. So fitting for the romantically themed ceremony that celebrated the couple’s union as well as those of others married on the same day (some as long as 50 years ago!) Kate and Wills shoveled some dirt with the fanciest spade we’ve ever seen and even received marriage advice from some of the elderly couples!

We’re loving this collared look so much that we’ve gone shopping for dresses just like the one Kate wore. Shop our picks now! »
