Kate Middleton isn’t exactly my fashion hero, given her somewhat mundane personal style selections (don’t hit me!), but I must confess that even I, a jaded fashion freak, am occasionally charmed by some of her more impressive choices. My favorite thus far of her sartorial standouts has been the Grecian-style lavender Alexander McQueen gown she wore in July to the Hollywood BAFTA dinner, but I’ll admit I’m equally dazzled by this week’s stunning floor-length split-to-the-thigh Roland Mouret. I know she’s married to the prince and all (I mean, duh), but Kate is a young, fresh-faced woman who shouldn’t feel confined to matronly wear. In particular, I like to see some glamour from her. This gown is the perfect synthesis of proper (the length, the long sleeves, the high neckline) and punchy (the off-center zipper in the back, the daring exposure of leg, and especially those shimmering Jimmy Choos). To this I say, Kate may in fact be wholly worthy of her iconic reputation. [photos via People Style Watch]

The Duchess Has Graduated

One year after her marriage to Prince William, the former Kate Middleton has something new to celebrate: Her “induction” is now complete and St. James’ Palace considers her a “fully fledged member” of the British monarchy, a senior royal source tells CNN. She achieved this vaunted status by fulfilling all her objectives of the past year, including charity work and her first speech, the source explains. Prior to the royal wedding, some had feared the “commoner” Kate would have a difficult transition. Read more…

Kate Middleton isn’t just an English rose glowing with natural beauty. She also fancies a bit of bee venom on her skin — AKA “natural” Botox — to sooth lines and wrinkles. Her stepmother-in-law, Camilla Parker-Bowles, turned her on to the $265 bee venom facial by aesthetician Deborah Mitchell, who works with Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. Mitchell runs a London spa called Heaven and has been working with Camilla for seven years; no doubt due in part to her discretion regarding celeb clients, she began working with Kate shortly after her engagement.

Kate Middleton Forced To Get Pregnant As Adoption Won’t Work For The Queen

Kate Middleton must have her own children with Prince William before she will be allowed to adopt according to Queen Elizabeth II.  It has been said that Kate considers Angelina Jolie her role model, so it is not surprising that she is considering adoption.  Nevertheless, it is the royal couple’s duty to provide the monarchy with an heir or two before adoption can be seriously considered.

Royal watchers concerned with the monarchy have been impatient for the news that Duchess Kate is pregnant – since an adopted child would be ineligible to ascend to the throne.  William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth IIsays that while she would consider the idea of Kate adopting in the future, she first wants to see her produce a legitimate heir.

Kate Middleton wearing L.K. Bennett photo

Some of us are not fans of Kate Middleton’s style, which Julie referred to as “on the mumsy, conservative ‘I shop at Talbots and Ann Taylor’ side.” I don’t dispute that characterization. But as someone who was weaned at a breast emblazoned with tiny whale appliqués, I find relief in Kate’s sartorial staidness. Thank God I don’t have to wear a plaid turquoise dashiki and pretend it doesn’t look moronic.

The U.S. is getting a little more Kate-ish today when an outpost of the preppy, European-based L.K. Bennett, opens in New York City. (Perplexingly, news reports say the store is in Columbus Circle but the company’s web site says it is in Bloomingdales. Fashion is so confusing.) The brand has five other shops around the country.  Keep reading »

We all know that I’m usually a little bit of a Kate Middleton player hater. But allow me to give her major props for some of her outfits lately. It seems that when she steps out without William she’s actually a little more fun and frisky. I like her more colorful palette. Here she is visiting the Treehouse Children’s Hospice in Ipswich, England, and she seems somehow more cheerful and sunny, you know? Anyway, I’m not above giving Kate a compliment when she deserves it.

The Duchess of Cambridge Visits The Olympic Park

Kate Middleton visited London’s Olympic Park today to play hockey with the national teams. In the process, she showed off a pair of super trendy red jeans — and some impressive lunging skills. Also her hair was looking perfectly wavy and frizz-free despite the physical exertion, but that was to be expected. (Oh, and it turns out the Duchess played field hockey in high school — no wonder she looks so adept!)

Caption This: What Are These Two Talking About?

The Queen of England and Duchess Catherine. What could they possibly have to talk about? Do you think Kate is all, “Oh, I just love the smell of begonias in spring” and the Queen is all, “Stuff it, bird?” I sure hope so. Your best guess in the comments, please.

If this story was a fairytale, it would go something like this: once upon a time, there was a duchess and a fake fur coat, and two fur organizations who will never live happily ever after. The actual story goes something like this: apparently Kate Middleton recently wore a coat lined with fake fur. The International Fur Trade Federation, which promotes and celebrates fur, posted a photo of her on their website, describing her chosen attire as “a classy fur-lined coat.” This pissed off PETA, the anti-fur organization, which got in touch with Middleton’s representatives, who issued the following response: “To state that the Duchess is wearing fur is not only false but offensive … to portray the new Duchess wearing something so blatantly cruel and contrary to her country’s values is insulting.” Now PETA and the Duchess’ office are demanding IFTF remove the photo and issue a retraction. The IFTF has yet to respond. We’re not sure how this will play out, but we do give the Duchess props for using this random scandal to make a pretty strong anti-fur statement.

Millionaires vacationing on the private island of Mustique this week have been dealing with certain inconveniences that come with sharing an island with the Duchess of Cambridge — and apparently they are not too happy about it. Ever since Kate Middleton and her family arrived on the island to celebrate mom Carole Middleton’s birthday, other vacationers have had to deal with hardships like being shuttled to restaurants in private vehicles and not having access to specialized golf carts. Said one anonymous vacationer: “This isn’t exactly the way one expects to be treated when you pay very good money to visit the most exclusive island in the Caribbean.” Sounds pretty rough, no? [Daily Mail UK]
