Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – Macdonald-Cartier International Airport

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Macdonald-Cartier International Airport in Ottawa, Canada to with her husband Prince William moments ago.

My first reaction was, “thank god she changed.”

She opted for a lace navy blue (again) Erdem ‘Cecille’ dress from the Resort 2012 collection, which has just recently been presented.

This was very clever considering the British based designer Erdem Moralioglu is Canadian.

Her favourite nude L.K. Bennett shoes were matched with a nude clutch.

She even had time to redo her hair on the plane, as she opted for a half up, half down hairstyle.

The Royal couple will also join millions of Canadians to take part in tomorrow’s Canada Day celebrations which mark Canada’s 144th Birthday.

London, nil points. Canadian 8.

I’m starting to think that Kate prefers to wear navy to complement her sapphire engagement ring.

    It’s like she’s wearing the same dress over and over again in different colors and different prints

    the dress is beautifull! but i think a lace dress in the morning to greet handicapped children is inappropriate! this is a COCKTAIL dress! RIGHT DRESS WRONG OCCAISON!

      That was my first thought too. Although the plain shoes and simple hair do keep it toned down a bit.

  3. Lee Ann July 1, 2011 at 09:05 #

    God she can even make Erdem dull

  4. Rach July 1, 2011 at 05:55 #

    I LOVE this dress on her. More Erdem please Kate. It seems such an obvious choice now, but they’re a perfect fit.

    she has lost so much weight. well i guess since she’s already got the “you can’t ever be too rich” part down pat, she is getting the “you can’t ever be too thin” part.

    anyway–i kinda sorta dislike her smile. something about her doesn’t seem genuine. she looks cunning–but i guess you need to be to land a prince.

    her shoe game is lame.

      Please can we concentrate on fashion rather than weight

    I find her to be a little bit boring. I actually like Pippa’s style more. But she can be more fashionable since she’s not the Duchess of Cambridge.
    Or maybe, as a person who loves vibrant colors, just find navy to be supremely boring.

  7. Molly July 1, 2011 at 03:03 #

    I have just assumed that all the navy and white was to set off the ring to its best. She is gorgeous in both, but yes – way too much of the same. Not sure what the strategy is.

  8. Lisa July 1, 2011 at 01:43 #

    Dear Kate,
    I’m road-trippin’ to Ottawa to see you tomorrow. Yes, you. Not Will. Because I quite admire you, I do. And I really want to love your style too but you’re making it extremely difficult. So please make it worth my while tomorrow by wearing a color. Any color. Just not black, white, or navy. Please. Also, if you can, please avoid wearing another pencil dress or dress coat. But that might be asking a lot. Baby steps. There’s a fashionista in you just waiting to break free, I can feel it.
    Love always,

      Send positive vibes that your wish comes true.

    She has such a tiny waist !! She looks good though and gives an impression that wears what she finds comfortable and that is very relatable. She has a very down-to-earth vibe I must say.

  10. Amber Walker June 30, 2011 at 23:48 #

    I was thinking the same thing about her wearing Navy to compliment the ring! I think it is so unnecessary! The ring is gorgeous and her clothes are just getting boring! Can I see her in a coral color PLEASE!

    less dull than earlier, but still nowhere near a wow; it’s nice to see her change her hair though even if it’s a minimal change.
    i’ve just about given up on her wearing anything other than dull secretarial shoes at this point. looks like the duchess has said a permanent goodbye to her old high street faves, it was a nice pre wedding pr move from the palace.

  12. Emi June 30, 2011 at 22:43 #

    Really cute dress, ugly clutch… I don’t understand why she always matches bags and shoes (maybe it’s a royal habit), but I really can’t stand her smirk, which seems to say “I’m a Duchess, now, ahahah”.

    • Fashion Critic June 30, 2011 at 23:00 #

      lol…you are so funny

  13. dee June 30, 2011 at 22:18 #

    She looks really nice.

  14. Dirk June 30, 2011 at 21:59 #

    She always looks so sophisticated! but i just know she misses being able to throw on some jeans.

    BTW, i’m a bit late but congrats, FC on the Vogue Italia feature and making TIME’s list. I’m so happy for you and happy for this site. When i first came here, i wasn’t that interested in fashion, (i came to see a picture of Nicole Kidman) but boy, has that changed! I read the blog almost every single day and i’m getting so much better. I can actually identify something i see on TV (with a 30% success rate. lol) through consistent reading of the site. Plus, i think your distaste of black heels is rubbing off on me.

    But congrats to a great year so far and i know things will only get better!

    • Fashion Critic June 30, 2011 at 22:14 #

      Thanks Dirk.

      I’m just as addicted to the site as you guys are. I’m always looking for pictures to share with you all.

      I’m glad that my blog has given you a great enjoyment of fashion, because that is it’s purpose 😀


  15. Lily June 30, 2011 at 21:34 #

    She always looks lovely…and relatable. I could actually see myself wearing her clothes and I feel that way only about 2% of the time on this blog. Ha. Smart designer choice.

  16. Danika June 30, 2011 at 20:57 #

    Erdem is a fantastic choice, but again on her it’s very ‘young conservative British’. Interestingly, it looks like the dress is modified to be slightly more revealing in that the lace sleeves aren’t lined. I might be wrong (the model is very pale) but I think it was a good decision!

  17. Emma June 30, 2011 at 20:56 #

    I love it!
    FC, will you go see her wedding dress at the exhibition this summer?

    • Fashion Critic June 30, 2011 at 21:05 #

      I’m hoping to 🙂

  18. Molly June 30, 2011 at 20:49 #

    I love this but I want to see her in a real color. I’m glad that she is taking advantage of all the designers that want to dress her. I wonder if we will get any Oscar details la Renta or Marchesa in California.

    • Fashion Critic June 30, 2011 at 20:52 #

      I would die to see her in Oscar de la Renta.

      • Molly June 30, 2011 at 21:14 #

        I have several outfits already picked out for her:)

    • Alina July 1, 2011 at 07:49 #

      Oscar de la Renta would be a great choice for her.
      I can also see her in something from Chanel.

  19. Stylish1 June 30, 2011 at 20:47 #

    Not more navy 🙂
    Those shoes must have a hole in the bottom by now!

  20. mol June 30, 2011 at 20:41 #

    I”m so sorry we won’t get a glimpse of this glamorous couple in Vancouver…Catherine looks great for her arrival in Canada, fingers crossed for more fashion fun to follow!

  21. Ella June 30, 2011 at 20:26 #

    I also am so glad that she changed…..this dress is amazing! And hey, I think she looks good in navy. But is it too much to ask for some strappy heels or something.

    Yep….she looks better thus far in Canada than she did leaving London!

  22. Marvel June 30, 2011 at 20:23 #

    Love it. Much better than London but Im hoping for some yellow, pink, purple and blue looks. Bold but she could pull them off

    • Gigi June 30, 2011 at 21:33 #

      Me too. She looks lovely. But boy is she thin! She may be thinner than the model. Princess Di did the same, but not to this extreme…. I don’t think.

      Good to see she’s still got “the ” ring on!

    • artemis June 30, 2011 at 21:38 #


  23. Pati June 30, 2011 at 20:16 #

    I love this dress! She looks great. But her shoe collection is the most boring ever….

  24. anamika June 30, 2011 at 20:15 #

    Super lovely!

  25. Mahima June 30, 2011 at 20:14 #

    Everyone is going crazy here.
