The whirlwind 9 day North American tour for the newly married Royal couple is over…. from Canada to California, here are the looks Ms. Catherine chose:
She LOVES her J Brand jeans… she wore 3 different times, and this style- 811 midrise skinny crop, which sells for $189… is already sold out in the US. THAT’S SOME POWER OF PUBLICITY FOR YOU! The navy blazer is Smyth, and EVERY woman should own something like this- it’s a lot better than a hoodie! ps: the navy is great- black is WAY TOO business-y. Shoes (in right pic) are Sebago. Not my favorite.
Collared dress by Catherine Walker. You know why this is great??? It was one of Diana’s favorite designers, and they are on their way to a tree-planting ceremony in her honor… (“awww”)
Dress by ERDEM. Kate wore this arriving to Canada. I say “good choice”! Who doesn’t love a little black lace and showing some leg? But she did it PROPERLY by wearing sleeves and a high neckline.
Stetson Hat…. I’m glad they got it out of their system in Canada.
Another ERDEM dress… She knows what fits her best! Show some leg- keeping the length “royal-appropriate”, while covering arms and chest… You can’t ALWAYS show it all off!! She has a TINY waist, and GREAT legs… not to forget AMAZING HAIR!!!!!
In JENNY PACKHAM at the Calgary Airport…. I’m all about “airport outfits”. Gone are the luxury days of travel, where you actually LOOK GREAT while traveling, opposed to wearing your sweats… (gross). Can this look GET any Better??
Arriving at ANOTHER airport in Canada, Prince Edward Island…. wearing Joseph. There are those nude shoes again by L.K. BENNETT. When you travel this much in such a small amount of time, you’ve GOT to recycle some parts of the wardrobe! (I prefer COMPLETELY different outfits, but in her case- how many cities, how many functions, in 2 countries, in 9 days??? Yeah, I’d probably recycle too…. Thankfully it’s something NOT OVERPOWERING, and blends in with the outfit, as opposed to DISTRACTING from it.)
Wearing Nautical-themed McQueen at a seaside town…. how charming. She does need to have SOME fun on this trip!
Probably my FAVORITE look of hers in CANADA…. dress is by MALENE BIRGERSH. Even though it’s so simple, the WAIST is the first thing I look at, it’s so small, and looks GREAT! Simple clean color scheme, and she looks HAPPY! (that’s the best part of the outfit- having the right attitude!)
In REISS dress for another ceremony. Wearing the Canadian colors… with a Maple Leaf in the Hat…… a little Kitsch-y, a little too theme-y, but like I said: she needs to have some fun on this trip. Can you imagine ALL the speeches, and ALL the hand-shaking and formalities?? I WOULD NEED to wear a costume too!
ISSA dress and PRADA shoes. The dress is the SAME DRESS STYLE as the NAVY BLUE she wore to the engagement announcement. (if you know what fits you…). Not my favorite- the shoes are too dark a contrast, and I don’t like her hair up!!! She has great hair, why is it up?? I know it can’t ALWAYS be down, but this is boring 😦
NOW IT’S TIME FOR: CALIFORNIA…. IN MY CITY – L.A.!!!!!
You KNOW she’s in L.A .NOW!!!!! SLEEVELESS AND SHORT?!?!? WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD!!! Dress by Roksanda Illincic. Is it just the lavender color, or does she ALREADY look TAN??? Mystic? Bronzer? Whatever she did befor exiting that plane at LAX is WORKING!!!
THIS is a PRINCESS……. ! This is ALEXANDER MCQUEEN to the BAFTA AWARDS in Hollywood. How fun is that? An evening with fellow Brits, Celebrities, and Red Carpet? Hopefully she liked it, because I could watch her on red carpets ANY day… LOOK AT HER WAIST!!!!! Official- The best in Hollywood!
At a reception in Hancock Park,(5 min from me) at the home of British Consulate. Here they welcomed friends and guests, (including David Beckham). She is wearing a DVF dress… (Diane Von Furstenburg for all you learning). How cool- in LA for a day, and already at a Hancock Park House Party??? She’s definitely more fun in California!!!!
In JENNY PACKHAM for a Polo Tournament in Santa Barbara…. SEE! She’s letting go of the formality, and enjoying the freedom Cali brings- Sleeveless AGAIN AND showing leg! Notice the OPEN-TOED NUDE SHOES NOW????
Wearing from London highstreet shop, WHISTLES. A conservative, but young outfit for visiting inner city Skid Row children. I think it would have been wiser to wear jeans- and cover up: that place is SCARY!
Well, we got to see Kate in many different looks, lots of the same shoes, (and jeans) and make all women jealous of her waistline- Does this mean she’ll start a trend for diets? (One can hope….) Since she has made a frenzy over the J BRAND jeans, she sure has got the ladies taking note!
All in all, she has definitely catapulted herself into a style icon of today….
