Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Royal Ascot 2017

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was the epitome of gracious charm at the Royal Ascot 2017 on Tuesday (June 20).

We all know how masterfully the house of Alexander McQueen can use lace, and that was proven true again here in this floral lace frock that fit Catherine like a dream.

In addition to the fresh enchantment of the dress that was likely customized to align with the Ascot dress code, Catherine’s styling on this occasion only served to enhance the effect.

From the pink Loeffler Randall clutch, to the nude Gianvito Rossi suede heels, to the sophisticated whimsy of the complementary fascinator, all the pieces worked in concert to elevate the classic allure of the look.

You even have to smile at her name tag that spells out: HRH The Duchess of Cambridge.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Trooping The Colour 2017

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was positively beaming at the Trooping The Colour 2017 parade on Saturday (June 17) in London alongside Prince William, Duke of Cambridge with the adorable Princess Charlotte and Prince George close at hand.

Her colour mantra for the day clearly took cues from pretty in pink, as she relied on favoured design house of Alexander McQueen for this sweet, gathered and pleated dress.

Together, with a matching Jane Taylor fascinator, this was right in the proper, sophisticated vein of Catherine’s style.

It was her radiant smile that sold the look, as one cannot deny the charm factor here.

Who Wore Preen Better? Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge or Mandy Moore?

When it comes to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s style, I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m not overly enamored by it.

However, the sight of her in this red Preen dress – with colour coordinated accessories – worn during her tour of Canada back in September fills me with so much joy.

Mandy Moore has been off the ball lately, but her blue Preen dress was electrifying.

The look was easily her best this month following a heavy promo tour for ‘This Is Us’, but Catherine wins my vote mostly due to this being one of her best ever looks to date.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Rochas – The Chelsea Flower Show

After her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was seen at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show a few days later on Monday (May 22) in London.

Getting in touch with her green thumb, she dressed for the occasion in a gracious, floral-strewn Rochas dress which was quite well-suited to the occasion.

A fresh ponytail and Monica Vinader ‘Siren’ green onyx earrings perfectly topped off the sophisticated, garden-variety look along with her go-to LK Bennett nude heels that I would have loved to transform into a dark-green sandal.

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Wedding

The Cannes Film Festival may be in full swing, but the other major event of the weekend was the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews on Saturday (May 20) at St. Mark’s Church in England.

I was awestruck by the classic beauty of Pippa’s bespoke Giles Deacon lace gown that featured a heart-shaped cutout at the back. It was enduringly romantic, sophisticatedly feminine and forever timeless—everything you’d hope a wedding dress could be.

Her fine tulle veil, with its dégradé of embroidered pearls, was made by renowned milliner Stephen Jones, and it brought a delicate, whisper-light addition to the gown.

A Maidenhair Fern tiara and matching headpiece by Robinson Pelham, along with custom-made Robinson Pelham earrings and custom Manolo Blahnik ‘Seneca’ pumps completed the graceful, fairytale look.

Of course, we cannot forget the bride’s bouquet which included astilbe, sweet pea, peony, freesia and waxflower, as the lushly simple array of white blooms couldn’t have been more suiting.
