So, on that completely relevant note, some may consider Kate Middleton a celebrity, but in my eyes, she is nothing like that. She is an incredibly intelligent woman who has handled the limelight and responsibility of royalty with a sort of dignity, grace, warmth and style that not even a seasoned celebrity can aspire to. She is not a celebrity; she is us. And because of that, I have no shame in blogging about her. Everything she's worn has been a fashion hit, but here is a look at some of my favourites:
As if her wedding dress wasn't gorgeous enough, her post-wedding ensemble stunned me. The entire look is so perfectly polished it shines like a diamond, but that fuzzy cropped jacket tops it off like a cherry, exuding warmth and approachability. Every woman wants to look drop dead gorgeous on her wedding day, and Kate can put a large checkmark beside that.
I adore Erdem because it's a label that allows me to shamelessly indulge in my love of all things lacy. Being one of the looks worn during her Canadian tour, this dress holds a special place in my heart despite its otherwise simple demeanor.
This look is another simple one, but the colour is utter perfection. The lilac, being so light as to almost pass for white, makes the gown both ethereal and glamorous - a unique combination. On any other person, the gown might be a typical red carpet choice, but a touch of royalty makes it an instant hit.
I first saw this dress while waiting for my groceries to be scanned - no doubt it made waiting in line much more enjoyable. The intricacy of the beading and sequin design resembles the detail of a mermaid tail. An aquatic goddess, but in soft pink, making this yet another glamorous and ethereal combination.
Kate shows us she can go bold too! Admittedly, I absolutely loved the collection this dress came from (I'm still yearning for those sheer pants with dripping, purple liquid down the thighs), so I may be biased. Nonetheless, this was a bold, artistic move for Kate and a definite eye-catcher.
If I ever needed something to describe the word "angelic", this would be it. Everything about this look was so heart-achingly beautiful. Soft, kind, respectful...never have I seen an outfit I would attribute such a personality to. People Magazine can speculate all they want about The Most Beautiful Woman, but step aside celebrities, because the crown of that title belongs to Kate.
