We all know when it comes to sports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are big fans, so it’s always nice to see the royal duo come out and support British athletes and sporting events hosted by the United Kingdom. Plus, it gives us an excuse to talk about all things Kate Middleton. This past Saturday, Kate joined Prince William and Prince Harry to kick off the launch of the Tour de France at Harewood House in Leeds. Quite the treat for the competing 22 teams, the royal trio greeted and waved off the anxious riders as they embarked on their 2, 272 mile four-country race that starts off in Leeds and finishes off in Paris. For the day’s event, the Duchess chose a bright green wool coat by Erdem from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection, which we last saw on her during the royal tour Down Under when the Cambridges visited Cambridge. The knee-length tailored coat was worn over a similar hue printed silk dress by Suzannah. Although it was hidden this time, knowing Kate, she’ll recycle this dress in no time. Allowing her coat to be the statement piece, she teamed it with a neutral-coloured clutch by L.K. Bennett and matching patent pumps by the same designer and added a pair of emerald earrings that coordinated accordingly to her outfit, as usual. Read more »

Kate Middleton makes us green with envy in Erdem and Jonathan Saunders at two sporting events this weekend
As many designer-loving brides have already figured out, white wedding dresses are simply that: white dresses. (Actually, sometimes wedding dresses aren’t even white, but I digress.) And while there will always be legions of Say Yes to the Dress fans who dream of trying on elaborate confections in a bridal boutique, there is no rule that says a wedding dress must be created especially for the occasion (a.k.a. with a price tag that would make most bring up their breakfast). As such, searching for wedding dresses in unexpected places might just produce unexpected results. Case in point: Net-a-Porter‘s annual spring sale which started today and has a pretty epic selection of stunning white designer dresses that can easily double as wedding dresses. Always dreamt of owning a Marchesa but balked at the price? Now’s your chance! These babies are selling fast so if you’re in the bridal market, get thee to this slideshow. Your dreams await!

Forget sports: We’re all about a fashion fantasy draft. FASHION’s editors share their favourite runway looks and the real ways to wear them come springtime.
It was a very busy weekend for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—but busy is always welcome for those of us obsessed with the royals, especially when you consider that Kate Middleton had 5 outfit changes! We have photos of every single look in our massive Kate Middleton style gallery, but here’s a rundown of what the royals got up to in New Zealand.
On Saturday, the Cambridges went to Cambridge! The couple toured the town and met with locals who lined the streets. Kate debuted a new coat by Erdem—a bright green, knee-length coat with front zip from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. She paired it with a floral print tea dress by Suzannah, though only the hemline was visible. Knowing Kate, we’ll likely see this dress in full at some point in the future. Since when doesn’t she wear an item more than once? Read more »
Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.
We’ve just wrapped another stellar round of London Fashion Week and it has just solidified that the British designers have made a huge impact globally with their prestigious labels, creativity and innovative approach to fashion. Here are some of the top trends developing from the Fall 2014 collections:
