After yesterday’s glamping experience, Kate Middleton was back to her typically regal ways as the Royal tour of Australia continued in Adelaide. Arriving at Edinburgh RAAF base this morning, Kate wore a pastel pink peplum top and skirt by go-to Alexander McQueen as she greeted the latest batch of eager onlookers and a 6-year-old girl from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were then driven to the suburb of Elizabeth, which was named for the Queen in 1963. The two visited youth workshop Northern Sound Studio, where Kate basically made GIF history faux-spinning some records and persuading Prince William to follow suit. Later, the Duke and Duchess greeted with more Royal fans while unveiling Prince George Square.

Kate Middleton may wear many vibrant colours (bright blue being at the top of that list) but we’re quite fond of her other favourite go-to: dove grey. Today she wore two different dresses in shades of grey while out exploring the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park, home of the awe-inspiring Uluru/Ayer’s Rock. While the Duke of Cambridge spent the day in an all-khaki ensemble (fitting for a very hot day spent in the desert) Kate started the day in a custom Roksanda Ilincic dress. The sleeveless, asymmetrical dress is similar to the one Kate wore upon arrivial in Los Angeles in 2011, but less formal in both fabrication and silhouette—making it ideal for an afternoon spent at the National Indigenous Training Academy, watching your husband learn how to handle a two meter long traditional hunting spear.

So much happened in Australia this weekend! When we last saw them on Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George had just arrived on the continent and the royal trio certainly had a busy Easter weekend. First up, the couple visited the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, where Kate Middleton joked about Prince William using some just-shorn alpaca fur as a toupee—and thus causing a thousand royal reporters around the globe to burst out laughing. The afternoon was spent on the beach, where’s Kate’s wardrobe choice for the day—a cream lace eyelet dress by Zimmermann and Stuart Weitzman wedge sandals—didn’t miss a beat. Though the royals did miss a chance to try surfing… Read more »

Kate Middleton puts DVF’s iconic wrap dress to good use in Australia

When Diane Von Furstenberg hit the scene back in the ’70s, her wrap dress was the most significant piece in any working woman’s wardrobe. “Feel like a woman, wear a dress,” she often said. What she really meant was “Feel like a woman, while calling the shots like a man.” How fitting it is to see history’s most “real world” Royal sporting one of those iconic dresses today. And digging earth at that!

Earlier today, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Australia’s Blue Mountains. The rugged natural region is a hotspot for adventure-seekers and brushfires alike, the latter of which damaged over 200 properties in the area last year. Arriving by helicopter (Kate’s hair was in a pony for the ride, just FYI), the ever-dutiful couple met with brushfire victims and first responders as well as some adorable Girl Guides who opted to say “princess” instead of “cheese” for their Kate Middleton photo op. The couple also partook in a tree planting ceremony where Kate put that DVF to good use, as she dug some space for the red eucalyptus planted to commemorate last year’s damage.

What’s better than a Kate Middelton appearance? Two Kate Middleton appearances! Earlier today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited New Zealand’s South Island, where Kate was spotted in a sleek cornflower blue Alexander McQueen coatdress.

Tonight (a.k.a earlier today, given that good ole 16 hour time difference), she continued her bouncy-haired flawlessness at a state reception in Wellington for some royal mingling and the unveiling of a new Queen Elizabeth portrait (she too is looking fierce in cornflower blue). After a few short hours presumably hanging with baby and baby daddy, Middleton re-emerged in a bespoke black crepe cocktail number by Jenny Packham. The dress’s right shoulder was embroidered with silver beading in the shape of New Zealand’s national emblem, a silver fern. The Duchess wore her Jimmy Choo Cosmic pumps, a Mulberry clutch and the diamond earrings and bracelet Prince William gave her as a wedding present. She looks great. What else is new?

Is there better news for a Monday morning than two new photos of Kate Middleton? How about: two new photos of Kate, one of which is an official family portrait, complete with smiling Prince George, happy Lupo and doting dad, Prince William. Best Monday ever!

The official Cambridge family portrait was taken by Jason Bell, who also took the (super adorable) Prince George christening photos. Kate, Will, Prince George and Lupo are sitting in a window at apartment A1 in Kensington Palace, otherwise known as their new royal home and the family looks perfectly at ease. “Why yes, our baby does have the cutest, pudgiest cheeks! Oh, the personalized “George” sweater he’s wearing? That was just a small gift from Grandpa Charles.” Read more »

Last night the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the London premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, as it was selected as this year’s Royal Film Performance. Will and Kate were joined by the film’s stars, Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, as well as Mandela’s daughter, Zindzi Mandela, for the lavish opening. However, the event took a tragic turn when, during the screening, it was announced that Nelson Mandela had passed away. Will briefly shared his condolences with reporters after the film, saying: “We were just reminded what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. It’s very sad.”

The Royal Film Performance started in 1946, and members of the royal family attend each year with proceeds going to the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund. Always one to look amazing on a red carpet, Kate wore a cream-coloured Roland Mouret gown, a piece that she first wore in May 2012 to a private dinner with The Thirty Club. Kate also wore black suede Prada heels and carried a matching clutch by Mulberry. She also debuted a new hairstyle, opting to wear her hair in a volume-filled ponytail, tied with a black ribbon. But the standout item is, without a doubt, the necklace. Read more »

Last night, Prince William played the role of host to guests attending the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace (aka his home!) in London. The event was in support of Centrepoint, a charity that gives homeless young people shelter, to which the future monarch has been a devoted patron. Among the VIP guests in attendance were Taylor Swift and Michelle Dockery whose head-turning style choices stood out in the crowd of do-gooders.

If you’ve ever wondered what one wears when they are meeting royalty, look to Taylor Swift who impressed in a dreamy floor-grazing white Reem Acra gown from the designer’s Spring 2014 Collection. She let the silver embellished bodice do all the shining by keeping her accessories modest. A classic retro curled updo and a signature red pout made up her beauty look for the night.
