The royal baby is due to slide down the royal vagina any minute now and Britain is ready. Specifically, British gamblers are placing bets on everything to do with the child: name, gender (a boy according to Prince Harry, a girl according to some lady who claims Kate Middleton spilled the beans), its hair color, even whether it’ll have hair at all. Daddy did start balding in kindergarten, you know. Gambling website Paddy Power sent these four creepy giant babies around London-town to drum up press for their bets and cause nightmares in small children. Clearly they succeeded at both. If you were hoping for another Prince Hot Ginge in 18 years, I hate to break it to you that the odds are 11 to 4. [AdWeek] [Photo: AdWeek]
“A princess should be sexy. She is young, she is beautiful – I would like to create something special for her, but nothing too bold. I would like to prove to the world that Roberto Cavalli can dress a princess. Maybe I would use a print, keeping it young, sophisticated and sexy. Just because you are queen or princess it doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy.”
– Cinderella, watch out. If Robert Cavalli was your fairy godmother, that beautiful blue ball gown would have been a cleavage-bearing bandage dress. As if our dear Duchess of Cambridge didn’t have enough to worry about (it’s not like the heir to the royal throne is growing inside her or anything), she now has to be a “sexy,” according to Cavalli.

Kates Moss and Middleton effectively share nothing in common aside from a first name and a nationality: one is a renegade party girl and supermodel, the other a refined, perfectly vanilla royal wife and full-time perfect blowout-haver. And yet! The results of a poll formulated by Britain’s largest online beauty retailer, feelunique.com, show that the polar opposites snagged the top spots in the running for the UK’s most influential beauty icons.
Moreover, Middleton has knocked Moss out of the prime seat by almost double, with 30 percent of the poll’s responders citing the Duchess as the inspiration behind their beauty purchases. Says the site’s editorial director, who happens to be named NEWBY HANDS (????!), “Kate and Kate represent two sides of really modern women and between the two of them they cover all style and lifestyle tastes. … Despite their differences they are both aspirational and fascinating.” But, you know, Moss forever and ever and ever amen. There is only one Kate in London, am I right?
Of course, this raises the question — which side are you on? Do you skew towards Kate Moss’s insouciant tousled hair, smudged smoky eye, and nighttime red lip, or Kate Middleton’s black liner, flawless curls, and healthy bronzed skin? [Telegraph]
Royal couple William and Kate recently paid a visit to the UK’s Warner Bros. studio to see where the “Harry Potter” movies were filmed and play with props from the Hogwarts set. (Best. Royal. Perk. Ever.) Kate wore an adorable polka dot dress from Topshop that’s obviously sold out now, but don’t worry, I found a similar one for even cheaper than the Topshop version, plus everything else you’ll need to recreate her fabulous outfit. Read on for shopping details! Keep reading »
Attention, royal bump watchers! Kate Middleton is officially showing! And it is predictably adorable! So, I consider myself an expert at predicting whether people are having boys or girls and because Kate appears to be carrying low, I’m guessing she’s having a girl. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST, FOLKS. There’s a princess in that belly. [Photos: Getty]
This is a picture of Melanie Chisholm AKA Sporty Spice, but when I first saw it I thought it was a picture of Kate Middleton AKA Sporty Duchess. I tested my theory by calling my boyfriend into my office, showing him the picture, and asking him who it was. “Oh!” he said, “the girl from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!” I shook my head and asked him to think more along the lines of British royalty. “Oh, you mean Kate Middleton? I don’t know what she looks like.” Siiiiigh. What do you guys think? Is Melanie looking more and more like a Duchess doppelganger or am I seeing things? [Fame/Flynet]
Is it a girl?!
Kate Middleton may have let the sex of her unborn child slip today as she greeted well-wishers in Grimsby, England. As the Telegraph reports, the duchess was chit-chatting with fans when one woman handed her a teddy bear. Kate reportedly replied, “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d…” then stopped herself.
According to Us Weekly, another bystander asked her if she had meant to say “daughter,” to which the royal replied, “We’re not telling.” Not telling or don’t know? Because another bystander heard her say, “No, we don’t know.” The plot thickens…
Either way, this is exciting because we can finally start envisioning how amazing it would be if Kate and Will had a girl. No offense to baby boys, but think of the fashion potential!
In addition to inheriting a great sense of style, Catherine’s baby girl would also inherit the throne. This year, the British parliament moved forward with legislation to end the principle of male primogeniture, so that Kate and William’s first child can inherit the throne regardless of gender. Yes, Kate’s first born might one day become queen. Read more…
Here we go again.
St. James Palace has confirmed that paparazzi photos of Kate Middleton in her bikiniare in the hands of Chi magazine, the same Italian tabloid that published a 26-page spread of Kate’s topless photos last September.
The photos were reportedly taken while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on vacation in Mustique and show Kate, who is around four months pregnant, in a bikini. Read more…
