Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Christopher Kane - Garter Ceremony

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, watched as Queen Elizabeth II led the Knights of the Garter to the Most Noble Order of the Garter Ceremony from the Galilee Porch on Monday (June 16) in Windsor, England.

Opting for yet another repeat, the Duchess wore a Christopher Kane pale blue coat dress with a matching hat from Lock & Co.

Her favourite LK Bennett ‘Natalie’ raffia clutch and a new pair of nude pumps courtesy of Jimmy Choo completed the look.

Catherine first wore this coat dress back in July 2012 while attending a pre-Olympics reception. We were baffled that this look didn’t have a trace of Christopher Kane’s usual aesthetic.

Now, those coat dresses are just blending into one.

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other looks from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Preview Party at the Royal Academy of Arts on Wednesday (June 4) in London, England.

Yasmin Le Bon: The model wore a pretty Christopher Kane white dress with light-green pleats from the Spring 2014 collection, which she styled with yellow pumps. The pink Christopher Kane clutch and bracelets were perhaps two steps too far.

Sai Bennett: The young British actress wore a black Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 silk dress with colourful star sequins. Not trusting the Great British weather, as she shouldn’t, she styled her look with a black leather jacket. Black pumps and Chanel fine jewelry completed her look.

Jaime Winstone: The actress wore a summery Kate Moss for Topshop white dress styled with a Vivienne Westwood necklace, Dolce & Gabbana floral-print wedges, Louis Vuitton clutch and Dolce & Gabbana embellished shades. The accessories are OTT, but this is true to her quirky style.

Joely Richardson: The British actress braved the mild weather donning a Temperley London Resort 2014 sleeveless dress with a pretty floral-print design.

Laura Carmichael In Christopher Kane - The Duke Street Emporium Store Launch

Laura Carmichael attended the opening of the new concept store ‘The Duke Street Emporium’ on Wednesday (April 30) in London, England.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore her favourite designer, Christopher Kane, selecting a cropped black cashmere ‘Flower’ sweater featuring a lilac lace logo worn with a futuristic jacquard plasma-print skirt cut to a flattering A-line silhouette with glossy petal-shaped PVC pocket detailing.

Her look was pulled together with a quilted-sleeve leather biker jacket and platform sandals.

While Laura doesn’t instantly strike me as a Christopher Kane girl, she always manages to pull off the Scottish designer’s edgy pieces.

Does this look work for you?

Rihanna In Christopher Kane & Étoile Isabel Marant - Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets Playoff Game

Rihanna has become quite the basketball fan, taking her courtside seat on Sunday (April 27) to see the Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets playoff game held at Barclays Center in New York City with her BFF Melissa Forde.

The singer wore a sporty look for the occasion, donning a Christopher Kane camo-print dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Camouflage prints are traditionally used to blend in; however, the singer stood out, with the leather buckle details of the dress joining the crop top and pleated skirt.

The look was styled with an Étoile Isabel Marant ‘Cypress’ varsity-style bomber jacket and Nike ‘Jumpman’ red and black sneakers to complete her sporty courtside look.

BDOTW 28 April

There were many great looks this week, but Emma Stone wearing Prada was the runaway leader with 49% of the votes.

I was totally swept away by Solange Knowles’ yellow and white Christopher Kane look. Not only for the lovely sunshine hue and hot-pink lip combo, but also for her interesting choice of accessories.

When it came to menswear we were in total agreement: David Beckham in Ralph Lauren Black Label.

Handsomeness aside, the former soccer star looked very dapper in his well-cut three-piece suit.
