Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Marchesa Notte – The Opening Night Of ’42nd Street’

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the opening night of ’42nd Street’ at the Theatre Royal on Tuesday (April 4) in London.

Still not ready to showcase her evening spring wardrobe, the Duchess wore a deep maroon Marchesa Notte tulle midi dress; coordinating her accessories, including Kate Spade New York ‘Pretty Poms’ tassel earrings, in the same hue.

I love the irresistibly feminine details and fairytale-like impression thanks to the embellished waistband and full-bodied skirt.

I just wish she opted for an updo or a ballerina bun.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Temperley London – 2017 Portrait Gala

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the 2017 Portrait Gala on Monday (March 28) in London alongside Rosamund Pike and Alexa Chung.

Her forest green Temperely London lace gown wasn’t a re-run, but it had a strong case of déjà vu about it, as it reminded me of her Temperley London ‘Amoret’ lace gown which she’s worn thrice before.

It has the exact same silhouette, the same lace pattern and the same satin waistband.

I also found myself a bit disappointed by the moody hue. We’re in Spring. Let’s celebrate that with some joyful colour. The Queen would’ve done so.

A gold Wilbur and Gussie ‘Charlie’ clutch and matching Jimmy Choo ‘Dart’ sandals rounded out her look.

I don’t hate this by any means, but as usual I’m thirsty for more from Kate.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Eponine London – Maternal Mental Health Films Launch

Whether we like or loathe Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s style, she always manages to be event appropriate.

This statement very much applied to her visit to the launch of Maternal Mental Health Films on Thursday (March 23) in London.

The Duchess wore a two-piece red and white gingham Eponine London skirt suit styled with tried-and-true accessories including her Kiki McDonough pink morganite earrings, Gianvito Rossi pumps and a L.K. Bennett clutch.

I wasn’t surprised to discover that this was a second outing for this outfit.

I much prefer the nude accessories with this look, the black – even though they were brought in to compliment the buttons – felt too heavy for this early spring look.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Chanel, Jenny Packman, and Alexander McQueen – In Paris

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was in Paris for a two-day stay over the weekend, arriving in the City of Light on Friday (March 17).

Look 1: This colourful tweed Chanel pleated dress was a chic way to make the rounds in Paris, with the bell sleeves and box pleats adding ladylike poise.

Look 2: Catherine opted to wear a longtime favoured designer of choice, Jenny Packham, for an embassy gala dinner. Although it may have appeared to be baby blue, the gown was actually a striking icy-silver hue. It featured a familiar silhouette, but the special flourish came in the dimensional floral embellishment for an enchanting finish.

Look 3: For a welcome reception at the British embassy on Friday, she wore a black Alexander McQueen textural dress in a fresh, ankle-grazing length with its modern elegance only heightened by her statement necklace.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Catherine Walker – St. Patrick’s Day With The Irish Guards In London

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was fully dressed in the colour of the day at the annual Irish Guards St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Friday (March 17) in London.

As we’d expect with a bespoke piece, her deep forest-green Catherine Walker coat fit her like a glove.

Additional sartorial beauty shone through with the coat dress’s dark contrast velvet collar and cuffs and military-inspired buttons, which she enlivened further with a shamrock pin and associated foliage.

Topping it off in final celebration to Ireland’s national colour, she tied the ensemble together with a matching green, sculptural hat for a look that didn’t skip a beat from her signature refined sophistication.
