Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Seraphine & Beulah – Out In New York City

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Seraphine & Beulah - Out In New York City

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, took a slice of the Big Apple for the first time as a couple, arriving in New York for a landmark three-day official visit on Sunday (December 7).

Arrival: William and Kate mania broke out in Manhattan’s normally refined Upper East Side as they arrived at The Carlyle Hotel, once the favourite New York haunt of Princess Diana. The Duchess was wrapped up in a maroon and black tweed bespoke coat by her go-to maternity brand Seraphine, styled with tights, a black clutch and suede ankle boots.

Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry Benefit: Later the same evening, the couple were spotted leaving a private reception and dinner for their foundation. Catherine braved the cold temperatures leaving the Gramercy Park residence sans coat wearing an intricate lace Beulah ‘Amara’ black lace dress styled with the usual black clutch and pumps.

I find myself liking both looks, especially the intricate lace motif on the second.

I am hoping there are some galas she will be attending during her stay so we get to see her take things up a notch with some glorious (hopefully non-black lace) gowns of the Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera or Monique Lhuillier variety.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Katherine Hooker – EACH (East Anglia Children’s Hospice) Appeal Launch Event

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Katherine Hooker - EACH (East Anglia Children's Hospice) Appeal Launch Event

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant while attending an EACH (East Anglia Children’s Hospice) Appeal Launch Event held at Norfolk Showground earlier today (November 25) in Norwich, England.

The Duchess, who is four months pregnant, showed off a fresh new radiant look dressing her growing baby bump in a vibrant red Katherine Hooker frock brightening up a cold miserable morning.

Considering the cold snap, I’m surprised she didn’t opt for one of her favoured coat dresses.

Sweeping her brunette locks into a high ponytail she accessorised with black Jimmy Choo ‘Aimee’ pumps, a matching black clutch and Kiki McDonough green amethyst and diamond drop earrings.

Between the colour and the ponytail, I will take this as yet more progress.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – The Place2Be Wellbeing Schools Awards Reception

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham - The Place2Be Wellbeing Schools Awards Reception

Before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the US next month, Catherine was flying solo on the red carpet yesterday (November 19) evening for the Place2be Wellbeing in Schools Awards Reception held at Kensington Palace in London, England.

The Duchess wore a Hobbs textured crepe overlay top in an embroidered polka-dot design with a subtle peplum waist detail accented with a belt and paired with a Jenny Packham Fall 2013 teal-blue silk knee-length skirt.

Styled with her favourite Jimmy Choo pumps and Cassandra Goad ‘Temple of Heaven’ earrings, I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this look.

While I would’ve loved the full runway look had this been a gala or a dinner party, her top is actually a really interesting choice, especially when paired with the belt.

Event and season appropriate without being boring? Colour me impressed.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Diane von Furstenberg – Royal Variety Performance

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Diane von Furstenberg - Royal Variety Performance

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Royal Variety Performance on Thursday (November 13) ready for a night of entertainment courtesy of Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding and One Direction.

The Duchess kept it very simple, wearing a long black Diane von Furstenberg lace gown with a delicate scalloped neckline.

She styled the dress, which showed off her blossoming baby bump, with a sparkly black clutch and Lola blue topaz hoop earrings by Kiki McDonough, while styling her gorgeous brunette locks in a low chignon for a refreshing change.

I know what many of you are thinking… boring, and I would tend to agree. I wish this was teal-blue, plum or even red.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Temperley London – Action on Addiction Autumn Gala

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Temperley London - Action on Addiction Autumn Gala

Stepping out for a third time in the past three days, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala Evening at L’Anima on Thursday (October 23) in London, England.

The mum-to-be wore a Temperley London Pre-Fall 2014 black dress which was modified from the look book version to have more of a flared skirt.

Her long curled brunette hair, kohl-rimmed eyes, jewels and matching black clutch and pumps completed her look for the night.

I kinda admire this look for its more modern feel, yet I’m not excited by it, especially when the styling and her hair is so familiar.
