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.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – Luxembourg

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge traveled in to Luxembourg today (May 11) to visit the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art (MUDAM), before a visit to Place Clairefontaine and tour a cycling-themed festival.

Opting to finally select from her Spring wardrobe, the Duchess wore a bespoke Emilia Wickstead coat which epitomizes elegance and timeless sophistication.

I love wrap-style coat for its pale blue hue, lady-like knee length and subtly pleated swing skirt.

The nude accessories are to be expect, but one can never fault those glossy tresses.

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.
