The Duchess of Cambridge mixes up her jewelry; sometimes she’ll buy reasonably-priced pieces that the everyday girl can afford and sometimes she does the royal thing and wears something from the Queen’s private collection. That’s the magic of Kate, my friends. Below are some ways to replicate. [Read more…]
Good evening and welcome to the ninth anniversary of the best day of my life. There was never a time in recent history as magnificent as that Friday, when Catherine Elizabeth Middleton walked gracefully through a tented tunnel that connected the Goring Hotel to a waiting Rolls Royce — nay — a page in British history.
The soon-to-be former commoner sat next to her father, Michael as she waved to throngs of screaming well-wishers before arriving at Westminster Abbey’s west door. As she stepped out of the vehicle, the House of Alexander McQueen confirmed that their creative director, Sarah Burton, had designed the future Queen Consort’s wedding gown. [Read more…]
Hello, friends. I hope this post finds you safe and healthy (if not a little stir crazy). While we’re all doing our part by staying home, I’d like to offer some distraction in the form of headbands. Whimsically-designed, fairytale-like headbands designed by Jane Taylor London, who creates hats for the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Cambridge (to name a few).
Since this year there will be no Trooping of the Colour or Royal Ascot at which the royals may show off their millinery finest, it is up to bloggers like myself to showcase what these brilliant designers are whipping up. [Read more…]
While the Cambridge kids were likely on their 600th screening of “Frozen 2” back at the palace, William and Kate took in a special performance of “Dear Evan Hansen” at the Noel Coward Theater in aid of The Royal Foundation. The couple are heavily involved in organizations that focus on mental health, which is why they chose to watch the play. [Read more…]
*GASP* Who dareth lay a handeth on thine anointed hair, which doth not quit.
Just kidding. It’s really nice of the Duchess of Cambridge to let anyone run their hands over her hair/pet her head like this little girl did in Dundeed, Scotland back in January, 2019. She’s got the patience of a saint, that Kate.
It comes as no surprise to anyone who likes color, well-cut fabric, puppies and sunshine that Her Majesty Queen Maxima of the Netherlands is part of Vanity Fair‘s 2016 International Best-Dressed List.
The Argentina native married Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, heir to the Dutch throne, in 2002, and the couple have three girls together.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s 2011 tour of Canada was my first introduction to a royal tour (albeit from afar).
With the help of royal reporters on the ground, other bloggers and I were able to identify items that would come to be synonymous with the name “Kate Middleton.”
There were also, of course, quirks here and there that those of us who’ve been covering Her Royal Highness have come to recognize (hello, Marilyn Monroe moments!). [Read more…]
We the People of the United States need to take a page from the mother country and start wearing hats on special occasions.
I’m not talking about gluing toys on a wide-brim hat and taking it to the races. I’m talking about beautifully crafted objects of art that sit daintily atop one’s head.
One milliner who recently caught my attention does just that. London-based Juliette Botterill worked for uber-famous designer Philip Treacy before breaking out on her own.
Last night, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene arrived at the Salle des Etoiles in Monaco to officially open this year’s Red Cross Gala, an event that thanks donors for making it possible for the organization to carry out its work. [Read more…]
If Vogue invites you to cover their magazine, you leave the denim at home, break out the couture, and have granny unlock the jewel vault.
This is precisely what Crown Princess of Mary did for the August cover of Australian Vogue, her second since marrying the heir to the Danish throne in 2004.
