A Week In Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s Closet

A Week In Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's Closet

It has been a busy few days for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who has attended several events in the UK this week.

M-PACT Plus Counselling Programme: On Tuesday (July 1) the duchess wore a sweet coral-pink Goat 3/4-sleeve belted dress styled with her favourite L.K. Bennett clutch and nude pumps.

Wimbledon Championships: On Wednesday (July 2) for the Simone Halep v Sabine Lisicki match on Day 9 of the Wimbledon Championships, Catherine repeated her Zimmermann ‘Roamer’ eyelet dress she wore on her tour of Australia. The look was of course styled with her L.K. Bennett nude pumps, with a red, tan and ivory Anya Hindmarch fan clutch providing the finishing touch.

Tour de France Grand Depart: For the official launch of the Tour de France – which, despite its title, kicked off from Harewood House in Leeds, England on Saturday (July 5) – the duchess repeated her green Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 coat. Worn over a green and white printed Suzannah summer dress, her nude L.K. Bennett clutch and pumps were of course also present.

Wimbledon Men’s Final: The duchess attended the Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer match held at Wimbledon on Sunday (July 6). Wearing another repeat, she opted for a Jonathan Saunders Pre-Fall 2012 dress which she first wore back in 2012. While we can’t see her shoes, I wouldn’t bet on her wearing anything other than her go-to L.K. Bennett nude pumps.

Sophia Bush In Zimmermann – InStyle Hosts A Cocktail Party To Welcome Eric Wilson

Sophia Bush In Zimmermann - InStyle Hosts A Cocktail Party To Welcome Eric Wilson

Sophia Bush joined Kiernan Shipka at a cocktail party hosted by InStyle to welcome Eric Wilson as Fashion News Director on Thursday (June 12) in West Hollywood, California, which was her fourth event this week.

She’s done prints, sheer, and a jumpsuit this week; so on this occasion bold colour was the focus.

There’s a lot going on with this Zimmermann Fall 2014 dress which features a lace body, plunging neckline and mesh skirt all wrapped up in a vibrant red hue.

I can’t say I’m entirely crazy about the look, but she makes it work, as per, plus I love the styling including her favourite Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, a red Rauwolf clutch and a bright red lip to round out her look.

Rita Ora In Zimmermann & Vionnet – Out In New York City

Rita Ora In Zimmermann & Vionnet - Out In New York City

Rita Ora was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City again today (April 30) sporting her second look.

With the rain coming down, the British singer donned two coats.

The black outer coat was a Zimmermann Fall 2014 military-style oversized piece, accented with shiny gold buttons and epaulettes.

The second, which is barely seen, was a blue and green striped high-neck coat from Vionnet’s Fall 2014 collection.

I instantly recognised the piece, because I had it in mind for the coat/dress-loving Duchess.

Why is Rita appearing to wear two coats? *Kanye shrug*

Update: So Rita wasn’t wearing two coats. She appeared on VH1’s Morning Buzz wearing the dress below.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Zimmermann – Sydney Royal Easter Show

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Zimmermann - Sydney Royal Easter Show

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the Sydney Royal Easter Show on Good Friday (April 18) in Sydney, Australia, before attended a surf lifesaving event on Manly Beach.

After creating quite a stir with locals for not wearing an Australian designer for her arrival, she obliged on this occasion donning a pretty white eyelet Zimmermann ‘Roamer’ day dress.

The dress, which has elbow-length sleeves, was styled with a nude box clutch and Stuart Weitzman cork wedges and, as expected, she opted to wear her hair down.

This look is one of my favourites of this tour along with the Roksanda Ilincic and Emilia Wickstead outings.

Easter Sunday will hopefully be a highlight too.

Naomi Watts has been spotted wearing this same dress.

Ashley Madekwe In Zimmermann – 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Ashley Madekwe In Zimmermann - 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Ashley Madekwe looked gorgeous as always attending the 2013 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic held at Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades, California on Saturday afternoon.

The ‘Revenge’ star wore an event-appropriate summery Zimmermann Spring 2014 white-and-black-print organza frock featuring choppy layers and a sexy open back.

Ashley styled her look with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals with a metal plate at the back, an EFFY Jewelry double finger panther ring and a metallic-silver Jimmy Choo ‘Rivera’ clutch.

A sleek bun and a deep-rouge lip shade provided the finishing touches to her look.

This is how to master a summery frock with Fall-hued lip colour without the contrast being so stark.
