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
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Scotland yesterday (without Prince George, insert sad face emoji) for their royal duties as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn. This is their first visit to the region since being given the titles in 2011. Before spending the rest of day touring a distillery and visiting a village fête, for their first stop, the duo visited the Strathearn Community College to greet young scouts, cadets and reps from Scotland’s Air Ambulance service. While William chatted it up with the rescue team, Kate Middleton got a warm welcome from a group of young girl guides and was gifted a large teddy bear in a Stathearn kilt for Prince George from the people.
For her first official public appearance since the Australian Royal Tour, Kate Middleton wore a regal-looking wool jacquard coat by Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders (how fitting) from the Fall 2013 collection. Although we can only catch a glimpse of her dress, Middleton donned a matching pink-hue dress by Goat, a designer she has stepped out in before. While she opted for neutral-coloured accessories—a patent leather clutch and her go-to pair of pumps– by L.K. Bennett, the Duchess surprised us with the addition of Celtic-designed brooch we’ve never seen before. Her stunning engagement ring, Kiki McDonough drop earrings and her Cartier watch she wears on repeat completed her look. With Kate’s calendar being much busier in the coming months, we know this summer we’re going to be sartorially (and royally!) satisfied.
From digitized foliage to hand beaded blooms, this spring offers a garden of earthly delights. In this vibrant photo shoot from our May 2014 issue, florals take a spin for yet another season and proof less ordinary than ever.

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 »
Move over KStew, there’s a new franchise face in town. If box office predictions are right: Shailene Woodley is about to become one of the biggest starts in Hollywood. As star of the upcoming Divergent, the 22-year-old actress is transitioning from a teen drama actress into a full-fledged A-lister. Known for her laid-back vibe and newly chopped hair, Woodley has been racking up red carpet marks in looks by Calvin Klein, Valentino and Jonathan Saunders.
For the past few months, Woodley’s been making the promotional rounds alongside studly co-star Theo James (a.k.a. Kemal Pamuk from season one of Downton Abbey). And while she describes her personal style as plain Jane, she favours relaxed statement making on the red carpet. Standout looks have included the bell-sleeved white Alexander McQueen dress and shoes worn at the Atlanta Divergent screening as well as the head-to-toe bodycon Jeremy Laing worn to the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.
