Kate Middleton’s Fashionable Weekend!
During her mini-tour of California, the princess wore clothes fit for a queen.
Only one word can describe this past weekend with Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge (see, we didn’t say “Kate Middleton.”) Wow. It was a weekend fit for royalty with three days of mingling with A-listers in the U.S. of A., posing in McQueen for the constant camera flashes on the red carpet, and switching outfits more than babies’ change diapers. What a weekend it was.
Let’s start with Friday, shall we? What an exciting adventure! When the royal lovebirds landed in their private jet at Los Angeles International Airport, Princess Kate appeared to be on a couture fashion tour all her own. All eyes were on the dynamic brunette as she owned the airport ramp, strolling effortlessly in classic beige pointed-toe stilettos and a fabulous lavender Peridot dress by fierce fashion designer Roksanda Illinic.
That was just the beginning! In princess fashion, Kate did a quick wardrobe change after being quickly whisked away from the airport in a classic black limo. After all, you can’t be caught in the same outfit after two hours!
Next on the royal agenda? An appearance at a British Consul-General’s private reception in Hancock Park. The power couple bumped elbows with new father and beloved Brit, David Beckham and 200 other guests as Princess Kate quietly made another amazing fashion statement. Again, she nailed another perfect summer outfit as she cordially chatted with some of the entertainment industry’s elite in a green Maja Diane Von Furstenberg dress, leopard clutch bag also by DVF and a simple gold charm bracelet. Elegant and fashionable!
Another wardrobe change and now, we’re headed to Santa Barbara. Taking cues from his charitable mother, Princess Diana, Prince William used some of his weekend for a good cause. The handsome prince played in a charity polo match at the Santa Barbara Polo Club for the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. His lovely wife was right beside him, cheering him on in a chic Jenny Packham silver silk dress and fabulous LK Bennett sandals. Princess Kate greeted her husband with a peck on the lips after the game was over, but we were too enthralled with her fashion choices to really notice.
But, the night still wasn’t over! Princess Kate had to prepare for her biggest stateside debut…on the red carpet. When in doubt, choose Alexander McQueen and Jimmy Choo! Kate followed that surefire advice as she elegantly strutted on the red carpet in a flowing, lilac McQueen original, adorable Jimmy Choo sandals and the perfect Jimmy Choo Ubai Clutch. To finish her look, the princess borrowed diamond earrings from her mom-in-law, Queen Elizabeth. She was such a natural in front of the cameras, it’s no wonder she’s the princess!
Diary, what a weekend! The prince and princess will be returning home this afternoon, but we won’t soon forget their whirlwind weekend on American soil. Four outfits in less than 48 hours? Royalty has its’ privileges. What a life!
