Timeline: Kate Middleton’s Most Iconic Fashion Moments

January 7, 2011 § 1 Comment

On April 29th 2011 Kate Middleton is set to marry Prince William and join the Royal family, but will she become the Queen of fashion? Her iconic classic style has influenced fashionistas all over the world. Here are a few of her best moments.

2002: Kate won William’s heart at a University fashion show at St Andrews  donning a black see-through dress designed by fashion student Charlotte Todd. The Telegraph reports it could be worth £100,00.

2004: Kate makes a statement, donning a tweed skirt and Penelope Chilvers boots with cute long socks. Adding a bit of style to the traditional countryfied tweed.

2006: One of my absolute favourite’s! Kate matches perfectly a gorgeous cream coat, shoes and fascinator at the wedding of Laura Parker-Bowles and Harry Lopes. Like so many of her moments the simplicity of this outfit is so stylish.

2007: Kate wore a high street beauty from Topshop for her 25th birthday.

2008: Donning a pair of neon hot pants Kate wears this spangley outfit to a charity roller disco.

2010:  Kate wore a dress by Issa to announce her engagement to Prince William. Possibly her finest fashion moment, the same sapphire blue as her engagement ring, what a beauty!

Clarence House Announces More…… On Twitter?

January 6, 2011 § 2 Comments

Little has been heard about any major details of the Royal Wedding so far, as I looked at my Twitter page yesterday afternoon all was revealed. Yes, I follow Clarence House on Twitter. I expected to read about the details of the wedding in the paper, but there it was, on my Twitter feed. Fabulous. I later read an article on the day in today’s Telegraph.

After this very modern disclosure I can finally (excitedly) write about the proceedings! The 11am service on the 29th April will take place in Westminster Abbey. Another modern touch, Kate, breaking centuries of tradition, will be arriving by car as opposed to ceremonial coach. This will undoubtedly have angered many and it would have been lovely to see the bride and her father Michael in the coach. Though it may be for security reasons and if the couple want their day to be a low key, modern event then so be it.

Kate and her father will travel to the service starting at either Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace or Clarence House. The car will then travel pass landmarks such as The Mall, Horse Guards Parade Whitehall and Parliament Square. After the ceremony the married couple will travel by horse and carriage through London so the public can get a glimpse!

The Queen will then give a reception at Buckingham Palace with several hundred guests, later on that night The Prince of Wales will hold dinner and dancing. It’ll be a big day for Kate and William and all of Britain.

The announcements on Twitter are a testament to the impact of social networking today!

The Royal Wedding

November 29, 2010 § 3 Comments

It’s so lovely to hear some good and exciting news for a change and this came a few weeks ago when Prince William made the long-awaited announcement of his engagement to Kate Middleton.

During a holiday to Kenya the Prince proposed to Kate with the absolutely stunning saphire ring worn by his late mother Princess Diana.

Clarence House have announced that the wedding will be held on Friday 29 April at Westminster Abbey, so I hope everyone will be penciling this into their diary and tuning in or even lining the streets of London to watch the proceedings.

I’ll be keeping up to date on Royal Announcements made and further preparations on the big day, and most importantly one THE DRESS! As if choosing your wedding dress isn’t hard enough, Kate has to choose one if the most talked about dresses of 2011.

Vogue have already set the odds for the lucky designer. With the likes of British designers Alice Temperley, Bruce Oldfield and Julien Macdonald in the running, it’s going to be a stunner.Excited.
