Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In L.K. Bennett – Evelina London Children’s Hospital Visit

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In L.K. Bennett - Evelina London Children's Hospital Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital this morning (December 11) following the announcement of her patronage with the hospital.

Bringing some festive cheer the children and us royal fashion watchers, the Duchess wore a beautiful L.K. Bennett ‘Mortimer’ dress.

I love how understated the looks is, despite the cheery polka dots, but I’m sure if the fern green accessories, which she wore on her last outing, work for me here.

The shade fells a tad too dull against that vibrant emerald hue.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – Diplomatic Corps Reception

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham - Diplomatic Corps Reception

The royal family welcomed guests to the annual white tie Diplomatic Corps reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (December 4).

Yesterday I said that methinks that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has a new stylist, and this latest gown from Jenny Packham all but confirms it.

Could this be a more perfect princess moment?

I don’t think I have been this flushed with excitement for Catherine’s style since her 2011 Jenny Packham dress worn to the ARK gala.

How can I explain this?

This is the most princessy princess dress the Duchess has worn. With feeling overwrought, and you know, too princessy. Grown up. Fit for a Queen. It makes sense in my mind.

There is just the right smattering of embellishments, the House of Garrard ‘Lovers Knot’ tiara of course enhances the regal air, and the accessories which included the yellow Royal Family Order, silver box clutch and earrings rounded things of perfectly.

This is infinitely better than the Alexander McQueen gown she wore back in October. Hopefully Jenny Packham will be her go-to designer for these events in the future.

Which of Catherine’s three looks would you want up for BDOTW? Or is that a silly question?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Smythe – Cyprus Visit

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Smythe - Cyprus Visit

Following yesterday’s festivities at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet the servicemen and their families living at the base on Wednesday (December 5).

I’m sure since her Erdem frock back in October, it hasn’t escaped your notice that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has had somewhat of a mini style overhaul, and that continued today as she arrived in Cyprus wearing trousers, much to the surprise of those of us who like to keep a close eye on the royal’s wardrobe.

Over the years she’s been partial to a pair of skinny jeans, but she’s never been seen in a smart wide-leg pair of trousers for a public engagement.

Her tailored olive blazer by Canadian brand Smythe, aptly called the ‘Duchess Wool Blazer’, was styled with navy Jigsaw trousers and an ivory knit top.

We’ve grown tired of the nude L.K. Bennett heels, so I was delighted to see her opt for a fern green pair which matched her clutch.

All in all, it has been a very good 24 hours style wise for Catherine.

I think I love this look more than the previous. Only because refreshing change of direction once again, and the impeccable way in which she presented this look.

Methinks someone has a new stylist.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead & Brora – Christmas Party For Families Of Military Personnel Deployed In Cyprus

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead & Brora - Christmas Party For Families Of Military Personnel Deployed In Cyprus

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a Christmas party for families of military personnel deployed in Cyprus on Tuesday (December 4) in London.

December 25 is fast approaching which means it’s peak season for pine trees, presents and festive party dressing.

Catherine and William proved that they are ready for all the festive good times, as they both put on their most Christmassy garms.

While Prince William went for a more low-key, Mark Darcy inspired festive fleece, Catherine went full out with her red plaid skirt.

Emilia Wickstead’s ‘Richie’ pleated skirt, which boasts a bright red, green, and white tartan, was styled simply with a Brora cardigan and knee high suede boots.

I don’t think it would be a stretch if I was to say this is easily one of her best looks of 2018. It would definitely sit in her top 5.

It’s event and season appropriate, feels fresh from all those coat dresses she loves plus, there is a youthful, yet sophisticated energy here.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Catherine Walker – Leicester City Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Catherine Walker - Leicester City Visit

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Leicester City Football Club to pay their respects to the five people who died in a helicopter crash, including the football club’s Thai owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Vichai was known to the couple and the royal pair visited the city to recognise the strength and compassion the people of Leicester and the club’s fans have shown since the accident.

This wasn’t a funeral, so the Duchess wasn’t required to wear black.

She looked as elegant, and appropriate as ever in a grey coat dress by Catherine Walker.

Catherine completed her look with a black Aspinal London ‘Mayfair’ bag, Cassandra Goad jewels and Tod’s black pumps.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Paule Ka – UCL Developmental Neuroscience Lab Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Paule Ka - UCL Developmental Neuroscience Lab Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge surprised students and staff at University College London on Wednesday (November 21), when she dropped in for a chat with Professor Eamon McCrory, to learn about how children develop emotionally and socially.

The mum of three recycled her Paule Ka suit which saw her looking typically graceful, wearing her brunette hair tied up on this occasion.

Some might feel that her turtleneck is too sheer, but I personally wouldn’t want to wear a heavy piece under a blazer.

Much has been made about the royal sisters-in-law both opting for the same colour today with black tights, black shoes and their hair pulled back into low ponytails.

I’m just happy they both look good.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Eponine London – McLaren Automotive Composites Technology Centre

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Eponine London - McLaren Automotive Composites Technology Centre

Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge visited the McLaren Automotive Composites Technology Centre today (November 14) in Rotherham, England.

Opting for blue again, the Duchess wore a British brand for the occasion: Eponine London. One of her favourites.

This belted, cobalt blue coat dress takes its style cue from 1950s silhouettes, which sees the Duchess continue her retro phase.

I would expected nothing less than matching accessories – Stuart Weitzman Muse clutch and Rupert Sanderson pumps – even if I’m always secretly wanting something different.

This look is a re-run, as the Duchess wore this same dress back in January 2017.
