Kate Middleton- The Royal Tour Wardrobe 2014

Darlings, I have been waiting too long to write this blog post. Rather than post daily about the Duchess of Cambridge's attire I thought I would do a collective post so we can analyse our favourites. This has also been the reason Kate has not appeared on my best dressed lists. Kate Middleton and Prince William have spent the past three weeks touring New Zealand and Australia with Prince George (his first royal engagement!). Whilst equally being interested in the activities of these darling pair our real attention lies with Kate Middleton's wardrobe and we can confirm her dresser has outdone themselves.
From the moment she stepped off the plane we knew we were in for weeks of impeccable ensembles.
Here is what she wore:
My favourite aspect of the whole Royal tour wardrobe was the concentration on colour and vibrancy. We have all heard the rumour that Kate has been told to wear slightly longer pieces however to our surprise, and delight we saw a whole different side to her wardrobe. From green and red Catherine Walker to yellow Roksanda Ilincic it was fabulous to see the Duchess have a little fun with her look. She also flew the flag for Great Britain choosing a block coloured blue Stella McCartney.
My favourite colour piece was by far this gorgeous Emilia Wickstead with a matching hat. Whilst remaining totally chic and classy this bold look complimented Kate's age, we have to remember she is only 32. Her luscious locks were left loose and she kept accessorsing minimal letting the dress speak for itself.

The Sell out
This is where Kate Middleton targets not only the nation but the globe wearing pieces that are affordable and can be found on the high street. Both her Tory Burch and L K Bennett daytime gowns were contrasting yet sold out just as quick as one another.
This is one of my favourite looks of the entire three weeks. Kate wears my beloved favourite Diane Von Fursterberg which sold out online in 8 minutes. Paired with those fabulous Stuart Weitzman wedges that I dream of owning and minimal hair, Kate is glowing.
Summer chic
Here we find the most chic, summery and ravishing looks. Wearing a patterned Hobbs, one of Kate's favourite designers, she showed her ability to dress appropriately (whilst the world was watching) and reaffirmed her fashionista status. Her lemon flared piece was by independent designer Broderie Anglaise which she paired tan Stuart Weitzman wedges. Her mink Roksanda Ilincic was the same design as the stunning lilac gown she wore last year and looked just as magnificent. 
What does Kate Middleton wear when DJing? Alexander McQueen of course. Baby pink is one of my favourite colours to see her wear (remember her Emilia Wickstead from last summer?) and is hot on trend for SS14.
My favourite was this elegant Zimmerman gown that Kate wore to the beach. The look is sassy and effortless. Keeping her hair a little more natural, Kate looked at home and was a picture of perfection.

Outfit repeater
This is one of our favourite traits ever in our future Queen to be. She too outfit repeats!!! From her red Luisa Spagnoli (which she played cricket in) to her Rebecca Taylor and Max Mara she chose to travel in, we cannot help but admire this women. With the world watching the pressure to look fabulous all the time is beyond great. She proves she is just like any other girl out there which is why we adore her.
I am just as obsessed with this nautical Zara and J Brand look as I was when she wore it in 2012 for her Canadian tour and in 2013 when she it wore it to the Olympics. The most amazing thing about this entire ensemble is she wore it twice during her NZ/AUS tour and just days apart.

Dress down
Even Duchesses dress down. Whilst Kate may have opted to play cricket wearing her Luisa Spagnoli two piece she opted for a more casual look wearing Jonathan Saunders whilst watching rugby.

Every girls dream, an array of designer coats. Kate Middleton's collection is divine and are the epitome of excellence. Wearing her beloved Alexander McQueen whilst embracing what is now known as 'the princess ponytail', Kate had already proven her wardrobe would be one to remember and this was on the second day. Green Erdem was breathtaking despite Kate admitting William thought it was a little 'too bright'. Prince or not, this girl need no advice when it comes to fashion! 
Staying true to her favourite designer Kate chose another Alexander McQueen for church on Easter Sunday. When it comes to the most important occasions she relies on Sarah Burton who creates the most amazing pieces.This pale blue is one of the hottest colours around this season and what more than a perfect pair of courts and impeccable hat to complete this look.

High society
High society events are where ball gowns usually arise. Surprisingly Kate opted for minimalistic, yet exquisite pieces for these events. It is impossible to choose a favourite between her black Jenny Packham and white Lela Rose. 

The Royal Tour is officially over, to our dismay. I have adored receiving a daily fashion fix from our style Queen and future Queen to be. Which was your favourite ensemble darlings? Mine is between her beautiful DVF and Zimmerman. 

Until next time.

Coachella 2014 style, Weekend Two

18th-20th April- Weekend Two
We spent yet another weekend obsessing over Coachella despite the first weekend proving a little more popular. Despite the lack of Popchella (Poppy Delevingne hen party) glamour, trends remained and the fashion stakes were still at their finest.
The Two Piece 
Solange Knowles once again proved she was the ultimate style Queen- no one will ever look at her as solely Beyonce's sister ever again. This printed piece and those gorgeous cat eye sunglasses with her natural locks are picture perfection. Ellie Goulding , who is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, also opted for a little black two piece which is complimented by her loose blonde hair and black booties.
The Jenner girls were out and about again proving their are turning into the hottest festival goers. Denim cuts were once again a favourite of there's. The usually glamorous, designer ensembles they wear were switched for laid back festival looks. Kendall and Kylie are making their own names in the fashion industry away from the Kardashian sisters (although were are obsessed with them too!) by channelling everyday wear targeted to late teens which is also shown through their Pac Sun collection.
The rules of print
-Be excessive
-Be brave
-Colour is everything
Kendall Jenner, Lana del Ray, Alessandra Ambrosio and Dita Von Teese are perfection. Although festival hair is minimal, accessorsing and beauty looks are everything. 
Vanessa Hudgens, our favourite Coachella goer year after year, channelled rainbow locks and a fringed skirt. Alongside Bella Thorne ensemble these girls are hot on trend. Fringed hems are popular both on the catwalk and obviously in the fields so keep your eye out darlings. I love Vanessa's minimal black combination and Bella's contrast by pairing her fringed cami with patterned tribal shorts.

Which is your favourite trend darlings?
Until next year Coachella ...

This weeks best dressed, 14th April-19th April

Style Queen of the week
Emma Stone
Once again Emma Stone has wowed, topping the best dressed list for the second week running whilst promoting 'the Amazing Spiderman 2'. I love that she has chosen an array of designers and various seasonal pieces rather than shown her allegiance to one. Whilst opting for a pretty lace Dolce and Gabbana ensemble for a photo call, Emma's transformation to a red carpet night look is head to toe fabulous. Channelling a red and blue embellished Chanel from the pre A/W14 collection and a A/W14 Valentino Emma's style dominance continues and her beauty looks are equally as gorgeous. My favourite has to be this blue, embellished Erdem. It's fun and sassy whilst looking totally chic. 
Other darling ensembles
Kim Kardashian
This ensemble has everyone talking and indecisive. However I am in love! This gorgeous baby pink Kardashian Kollection jumpsuit is one of my favourite Kimmy looks, her style has been impeccable since she gave birth and her beauty looks are phenomenal! Of course this girly knows her stuff.

Candice Swanepoel
wearing Roland Mouret. OH ... did I mention the Victoria's Secret fashion show 2014 is coming to London!!!

Leighton Meester
wearing Versace.

Kate Moss
wearing Topshop.

Miranda Kerr
My favourite fashionista wears Elizabeth and James.

Coachella 2014 style, Weekend One

11th-13th April- Weekend One
Our favourite festival of the year arrived this past Friday bringing the best music, parties and most of all style. This year our favourite stars knew all eyes would be on them meaning the fashion stakes were at their highest and oh, they delivered. From Popchella (Poppy Delevingnes hen party) to the famous Lacoste party, style was impeccable and it was lovely to see some of our favourite festival goers and some newbies including Kendall and Kylie Jenner. We dreamt of Coachella all weekend and we will equally do the same this weekend- it even broke instagram!
I have rounded up the hottest festival style from weekend one in which we can predict this Summers festival trends. Let me know your favourites darlings, we still have another weekend ahead of us. 

The Two piece
The two piece was quite literally everywhere and in various forms. From cropped top/midi skirt combinations to bralets and shorts this is undoubtedly my favourite trend from this weekend and the best thing of all? It is popular on the high street, particularly Topshop.

 Both Jourdan Dunn and Alessandra Ambrosio (a Coachella regular) opted for a tee/shorts combination showing it is appropriate for both casual and events that are a little dressier. They are equally gorgeous.
Katy Perry (a Coachella regular) and Chanel Iman chose midi skirts, which are perfect for experimentation with patterns and colours.
When it comes to festivals, denim is everything.
This is a trend that will NEVER go out of style but instead are a go to wardrobe piece. Denim is fabulous and provides a starting point to creating one amazing ensemble. From shades, to added prints, to lengths and cuts denim shorts are a festival saviour shown by our favourite starlets. Laura Whitmore is a fan of printed shorts which are both cute and fun whilst Emma Roberts, Camille Belle and Shenae Grimes choose something a little more simplistic but equally as ravishing and evidently pave way for some stunning accessorising.
These starlets are the ones to watch. On one hand with have the festival Queen, Vanessa Hudgens bedazzled her face in pretty jewels and wore extensive jewellery which was completely chic. It was lovely to see her blonde, bohemian locks which looked marvellous on this style chameleon. On the other hand it was Kendall and Kylie who dominated the festival. Rather than all eyes being on their new best friend Selena Gomez these two girls were show stopping in every piece they wore, embracing festival chic to it's finest. We have to give it to these darlings for experimenting, Kendalls nose ring was the talk of the day and she also channelled a black lengthy look taking some inspiration from Vanessa Hudgens bejewelled eyebrows which I love. Whilst Kendall is known for walking the high fashion runway, Kylie's laid back, yet cool, style is envied by many, including her sister Kim. Kylie embraces these trends daily. Could she be our new new festival Queen? Her accessorsing is impecable and effortless. 
Jared Leto is playful and experimental in zebra print leggings with his lucious locks left loose. Emmy Rossum and Kate Bosworth chose understated prints with gorgeous cuts. Bold prints and clear cut pieces are a perfect combination however understated patterns and eccentric cuts are equally on trend and dominating. 
Of course Beyonce stole the show, Beyonce always steals the show. Making a surprise appearance at Solange Knowles' set , Queen B stunned wearing Topshop florals that were to die for. Nina Dobrev was also a fan of prints which look pretty and perfect.
Another festival favourite, fringed pieces were truly embraced in the Californian valley. Aluna Francis and Kate Bosworth, wearing H&M portrayed laid back graceful looks.

So darlings who wore your favourite look? Of course Queen B is right at the top of our lists but I was ridiculously impressed by Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Until next weekend darlings! xo
