Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – Queen Elizabeth II Hosts A Garden Party At Buckingham Palace

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - Queen Elizabeth II Hosts A Garden Party At Buckingham Palace

Queen Elizabeth II hosted the Royal Garden Party held on the grounds of Buckingham Palace which was attended by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, earlier this afternoon in London.

Catherine wore a summer look to cheer up onlookers, turning to one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead.

The Duchess dressed her baby bump in an elegant yellow-and-white ‘Marella’ silk coat.

Her polished look was styled with pearl-drop earrings, a Jane Corbett hat, and her signature accessories including nude L.K.Bennett pumps and a matching clutch.

This is another pretty look from the Duchess, however, the hat feels overly fussy on this occasion and I can’t help thinking that this probably should’ve been worn on Easter Sunday.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – National Portrait Gallery

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - National Portrait Gallery

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge continued her busy week of official engagements with an appearance at a reception hosted by the National Portrait Gallery in London this evening.

The event honours the work of The Art Room, a charity which uses painting and drawing to build the self-confidence of young people.

Catherine’s maternity style continues to impress I am delighted to say.

The expectant royal looked divine wearing a sleeveless baby-blue Emilia Wickstead dress which perfectly showed off her growing baby bump.

She completed her look with a half-up, half-down hairstyle with cascading curls and grey suede Rupert Sanderson ‘Malone’ pumps.

I absolutely love this. The colour is so complementary to her colouring and perfect for the spring season. I’m surprised to say this, but I can’t wait to see what she wears next.

Do you love Catherine’s maternity style?

Jameson Empire Awards 2013 Red Carpet Round Up

Empire Awards Women

Here is a look at the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening for the Jameson Empire Awards 2013.

Ellie Goulding: The singer wore a simple black L’Agence halter dress with two-tone Nicholas Kirkwood sandals. The thing that piques my interest here is her Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch: the sharp-edged black-and-white leather clutch with geometric mirrors has just become my must have.

Alexandra Roach: With so much black on this red carpet, I was delighted to see the Welsh actress wearing this green-and-white Emilia Wickstead Spring 2013 long-sleeved flared dress. Simple styling – just adding nude Louboutins and a simple bun – ensured all focus was on her gorgeous dress.

Jenna-Louise Coleman: The actress wore a black-and-white on-trend floor-length dress with peaked shoulders and a leather belt accent by Latvia designer, Katya Shehurina. She also styled her look with the Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch which only fuels my must have desire for this clutch.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – St Patrick’s Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - St Patrick's Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a St Patrick’s Day parade by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards as she visited Aldershot Barracks on Sunday in Aldershot, England with her husband, Prince William.

Showing – somewhat – her baby bump, the Duchess donned a forest-green coat dress by one of her favoured designers: Emilia Wickstead.

The coat, which she also wore on St Patrick’s Day 2012, was decorated with a shamrock brooch.

Sporting a rare and elaborate updo, the Duchess wore a black John Locke hat, which was also worn back in March, 2012.

Keeping herself warm on a cold and wet Sunday afternoon, Catherine wore a black turtleneck and black tights, completing her look with black gloves.

The highlight of the day was when one of Catherine’s heels got caught one in a grate and had to be rescued by her husband, while the officers continued to salute.

She carried off the incident gracefully and with a smile.

Victoria Pendleton In Emilia Wickstead – Royal Ascot Launch

Victoria Pendleton In Emilia Wickstead - Royal Ascot Launch

Victoria Pendleton has pretty much worn Stella McCartney exclusively since the 2012 London Olympics, but she opted for a different designer this afternoon whilst launching the 2013 Royal Ascot campaign, ‘The Colour and the Glory’.

Brightening up a miserable day in London’s Hyde Park, she donned the Sloane Street, ‘Ladies who Lunch’ favourite, Emilia Wickstead.

Her white, long-sleeve, boat neck, flared dress from the designers Spring 2013 collection was styled with a beautiful pink orchid accented Philip Treacy lavender hat.

I love hat and the dress; both are perfect for such an occasion, but those shoes…*sighs*…I don’t think they are as elegant as everything north of her ankles.

The Royal Ascot will take place this year from June 18th – 22nd.

Luxembourg Royal Wedding Guests

Princess Mette Marit of Norway: She is always one I look out for so I was quite disappointed by this easily forgettable look. She opted for a navy lace Valentino coat dress which she styled with nude Louboutin pumps with navy and gold ribbons braided into her hair.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark: My favourite royal didn’t let me down, looking as uber chic as always wearing a maroon long sleeve dress with a peplum detail. An event appropriate OTT grey hat, a snakeskin Naledi Copenhagen clutch and black pumps completed her look.

Cameron Diaz In Emilia Wickstead – Obama Victory Fund 2012 Event

Cameron Diaz looked pretty in pink as she made her way out of a back exit from a Barack Obama fundraiser at Mark’s Club, which was also attended by Anna Wintour and Gwyneth Paltrow, in London yesterday evening to raise money for the Obama presidency campaign.

The actress wore an Emilia Wickstead Fall 2012 jumpsuit.

Her uber-chic look with short sleeves was styled with a matching leather belt, white peep-toes, a gold clutch and a black clutch.

I love this look from head to toe, excluding the black clutch. The white heels don’t trouble me on this occasion.

A simple ponytail and pink lippie completed her look.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Dannii Minogue are also fans of New Zealand-born, London-based designer Emilia Wickstead.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Repeats Her Emilia Wickstead Dress

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge joined other royals at Buckingham Palace this evening for the Queen’s garden party.

I was shocked to see that she was wearing the same Emilia Wickstead dress she wore to Royal Sovereign’s lunch in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee at Windsor Castle just two weeks ago.

The penny pinching princess added a Jane Corbett hat, her favourite LK Bennett nude pumps and an LK Bennett clutch on this occasion.

Whilst there is nothing wrong with repeating, did she have to wear it again so soon?

Is Kate running out of ideas, or do you approve of her quick recycling (and improvement) of this look?
