Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Adds A New Green Dress To Her Collection

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Adds A New Green Dress To Her Collection

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for her first royal engagement in May on Wednesday (May 1), when she opened the new Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families in London.

For the occasion, the duchess turned to one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead, opting for a dark green long-sleeved dress with a built-in belt.

You may be surprised to learn that this is a new look, as it feels very similar to the Beulah London dress she wore back February, and the Emilia Wickstead lilac dress she wore back in October.

The new addition to her royal wardrobe was styled with Gianvito Rossi suede pumps and a matching Mulberry ‘Amberley’ clutch.

    I like the colour, the style and the impeccable tailoring. I understand that some might think her style is safe (or boring) but I think that dressing simply yet elegantly is respectful towards the people she meets (can you imagine her talking to sick children in some outrageously fashionable outfit? The press would eat her alive. Besides that would make her less approachable.). She looks lovely and perhaps she doesn’t feel comfortable being a proper fashionista. That is perfectly fine, her ‘job’ is not in fashion.

    Re spending tax pounds: fair enough, but if you look at the amount of money that is daily being misdirected or mismanaged by local and national authorities, you will probably find that a couple of McQueen dresses don’t really compare.

    I’d love to see Catherine in a pant suit.

    What is the problem with having two dresses from the same label in different colors? I do it all the time and no way do I have the money that the Duchess has for her wardrobe. Other than the color, this dress does not remind me of the Beulah dress, which is longer and does not have a fit and flare silhouette. Don’t get me wrong, I think the Duchess is a very, very boring dresser and often veers into mumsy or childish outfits but the negativity about this dress is a bit much. Especially, when we know her aesthetic. There are only so many boring dresses out there and she has to go to a lot of events. She may as well buy them all.

      The problem is that her clothing allowance (which I assume only has a ceiling amount on paper and not in real life) is taxpayers money. So if she had to buy event appropriate boring dresses that even regular brands in the UK provide, why is she getting it for 4-10 times the price from luxury labels, and she doesn’t stop there. She buys clones of those dresses at the same unjustifiable prices. How disrespectful to taxpayers. We pay her a clothing allowance more than what Condé Nast gives Anna Wintour only to end up with “Sunday school teacher” wardrobe. Her style can be done well economically, but I guess she just spends because she can.

      I like her simple and elegant style and she’s worn a lot of high street brand. So what if the taxpayers pays for her clothes for Royal events? That doesn’t mean the public gets to dictate her wardrobe. Meghan has spent 10 times more on her clothes this past year and her looks have mostly been a miss.

    • Guest May 4, 2019 at 4:48 am #

      10 times more ? That would be in millions of pounds then lol. Bordering on 2 million maybe lol. Wrong numbers. This also reminds me, no taxpayer is funding me. Gotta start my day, no point arguing with someone who’s a Kate fan. Have a nice day Miss.

      If she started to dress non-boring like a Lady Gaga or a Cardi B, that would be far far worse because: a) the Duchess is using tax payer money to look glam, b) it sets of competition for looks and so on. It would be a slippery slope. If she were my Duchess, I would still want her to look the way she does: prim, proper, classic, timeless (so that her pics from 2012 still look fresh and will continue to look so in 20 years), and well-turned out. This may be dull but it does not risk being improper by any standards.

      Your reply just goes to show that your original comment had no merit. When forced to defend yourself, you have excuses. Meghan has spent close to half a million for her wardrobe this past 12 months. Kate has not spent nearly as much.

    • Guest May 5, 2019 at 11:27 am #

      First of all, the blog which published the alleged price of Meghan’s wardrobe got publicly called out by Queen Rania for making up numbers but okay. Meghan joined the BRF last year, Kate in 2011. One is building her royal wardrobe, the other isn’t. No sane mind should even compare their spending. But that has become the MO for Kate’s supporters. Deflect any perceived (emphasis on perceived) slight towards Kate by bringing up Meghan. It’s telling.

    • Guest May 5, 2019 at 8:57 pm #

      If I look through your angle, then Kate should have spent extravagantly in 2011/12 when she was building up her wardrobe but she did not. Why shouldn’t the taxpayers compare their spending? We judge everything else from education to medical care that’s funded from taxpayer money. If Royal spending did not matter, why do they disclose it every year?The problem is Meghan spends extravagantly for every engagement, but when Kate gets a new dress once in a while in the silhouette she likes, Meghan fans pounce on her. We don’t need Queen Rania’s advice on how to add the numbers for the cost of Meghan’s clothes 😉

    • Guest May 5, 2019 at 11:31 pm #

      Rania denied the blog’s estimation of her spending on clothing and they couldn’t back up their claims. That’s not giving advice. Also, Kate did spend extravagantly and continues to do so, Charles pays for their clothes and the BRF doesn’t disclose the cost. At least, deflect with facts that aren’t refutable lol.

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 4:28 am #

      Rania is clueless for saying blogs/newspapers can’t add up cost of Meghan’s clothes. It’s easy. The clothes are available for sale so you add the numbers up. For bespoke, most top designers have prices that are generally known. Where’s your proof of Kate’s extravagant spending???. I think you are the one trying to deflect with facts that can be easily refuted lol

    • Guest May 7, 2019 at 10:53 am #

      If you actually believe the retail prices available to the masses are the same ones applied to the royals, I have a bridge to sell you. Kate’s spending has been heavily documented over the years. You didn’t follow her much before, did you? I figured. She gained a lot of new “fans” recently. It’s odd lmao

    • Guest May 8, 2019 at 12:34 am #

      I’ve followed Kate since before she married into the Royal Family thank you very much. she has always been very popular and its not a recent thing. You still haven’t provided evidence of Kate’s extravagant spending. It’s because there is none 😉 .So what you are saying is Meghan’s non stop designer purchases are due to the fact she take advantage of her Royal status by paying little?

    • Guest May 8, 2019 at 3:29 pm #

      All you have to do is search “Kate spending” and you’ll have the proof you need. I didn’t ask you to prove your claims because Google is easy and free. Brands deal with celebrities and royals (all of them). Your last question makes me even more skeptical that you’ve actually followed royals for years.

    I’ll take this over another coat dress but what’s with the Duchesses obsession with forest green? I’ve loved a more grass green or mint shade. Plus, will her new stylist show her some fun with her pumps. A pink pair would have jazzed this up no end.

  5. Guest May 3, 2019 at 8:40 pm #

    She orders the same design in multiple colors from different designers and have some fooled into believing she’s frugal or my personal favorite “she recycles so much”. It’s low key brilliant so props to her lol.

    • Guest May 3, 2019 at 8:46 pm #

      And none of them represent the designers true aesthetic. They all look simple and boring. Could easily buy such designs from high street brands, but guess a couple hundred/thousand pounds of taxpayers money means nothing.

  6. Guest May 3, 2019 at 8:25 pm #

    She looks perfectly lovely and all, but when you compare it to the Beulah you have to wonder why she bothered?

  7. Guest May 3, 2019 at 8:07 pm #

    Taxpayers money well spent on a dress with such a radically different design. And the nude pumps and bag, such a stroke of inspired genius.
