The Follow Fashion: Kate Middleton (… er) Catherine Duchess of Cambridge

The Follow Fashion: Catherine Duchess of Cambridge

I promised myself I wouldn’t, so consider this as me giving in to the Royal Hoopla. Two days ago she woke as Kate Middleton, and while some have been reveling in calling her the new Princess Kate, it seems her official title is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. On all accounts I’ve heard everything from ‘the dress was drop dead gorgeous’ to ‘it was a little too simple for my taste.’ The Grace Kelly reminiscent Alexander McQueen made by Sarah Burton was definitely fit for a royal wedding, but something tells me that the simple but gorgeous dress Kate Catherine popped up in later in the evening was more her choice than the first.

Rumors were swarming that the gown was going to be decidedly less traditional, but when Catherine made her debut it was the picture of elegance and Royal Tradition. The demure nature of the gown leads me to wonder if her highness, the Queen didn’t get the last say on the gown for the ceremony. Nevertheless, they were perfectly adequate.

If I’d have attended the royal nuptials, I might have worn that rose white glove from Krista R. I haven’t been coveting the engagement ring, but these blue sapphire earrings are definitely lust-worthy.

The Fantastic Four: Fascinators

The Fantastic Four: FascinatorsIn the beginning, Blair Waldorf had her headbands and now Kate Middleton has her fascinators. With all eyes are on Kate Middleton less than two months until the royal wedding, Kate’s fashion sense is under the proverbial microscope and the one thing I’m utterly fascinated by are the fascinators (pardon the pun). On this side of the pond we don’t wear head appendages all that often, which is a shame if you ask me, but between Blair Waldorf and Kate Middleton we’ve got an excuse to explore the hair accessory world beyond the bounds of decorated bobby pins and barrettes.

All the feathers, veils, buttons, and little added details make these so called fascinators elegant and whimsical. We’d be willing to wager that it’s not socially acceptable to wear headdresses like Marie Antoinette in public so we’ll have to settle for these. [1] The Bundle MacLaren Millinery label makes some of the most beautiful fascinators I’ve ever seen, this one, the Alie, combines a faux snakeskin button headpiece, a crinoline veil, black quills, and a gorgeous gold and diamante brooch. [2] Planet’s Multi Feather Fascinator mixes purple and green perfectly, and the cut feathers are all about the drama. [3] Hobbs London’s Pacific blue Esme Fascinator is all about the aqua blue feathers, and it’s perfect for clipping onto the base of chignon or sitting atop of our heads. [4] Valencian hat designer, Catarina Vassalo puts Spanish society on the map with the Gold and Brown Fascinator, the cameo and buttons make this piece even more gorgeous.
