Today Kensington Palace shared a photo of the Duchess of Cambridge getting her first COVID-19 vaccine. Looking like an off-duty, casual Queen Consort-in-waiting, Kate wore her hair down and sported an outfit that reminded me of my middle school days — ribbed scoop neck fitted shirt with high-wasted jeans (something one might find in the now-shuttered Contempo Casuals or Wet Seal).

Last Friday’s premiere of “Emily in Paris” on Netflix might have been nothing like Kate’s royal trip to the city of lights in 2017 (for one, I don’t think Patricia Fields, the show’s costume designer, edited HRH’s wardrobe).
And yet, here I am flipping through a few of Kate’s looks and thinking how, like any woman, excited she must have been to wear Chanel while carrying Chanel in the city where Chanel made Chanel. [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…]
You know what’s strange? I didn’t love Kate Middleton’s Eponine dress last night, but I was totally into her head-to-toe green sports outfit today. I can’t explain why. Sometimes we’re drawn to weird things. One of my Twitter friends, Suzy Q, called Kate’s culottes “Sportspants” and henceforth they shall be referred to as such. [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…]
It’s the struggle each woman faces. And while she might yet not have her own account on Net-a-Porter, Princess Charlotte endured this struggle today at a children’s party for military families in Victoria, Canada.
What should I do with my cardigan/blazer/jacket?
I was too warm while wearing it, but now I’ve taken it off and I’m cold. But I know in a few minutes I’ll be too warm again.
While the Duke of Cambridge tried (and failed) to fashion a balloon animal, Charlotte was seen debating with herself whether put the cardigan on, or hold it. [Read more…]
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!).
