Style: Kate Middleton Royal Tour Week 3 and Favourites

It’s been a whirlwind tour of Australia and New Zealand for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The couple began their last week with a state visit to the Yarralumla House of Parliment. Kate wore a stunning white Lela Rose dress to mark the occasion. The crocheted sleeves and faux-peplum crochet add some interest to the dress. Accessories wise, Kate wore her blue engagement ring, a sparkling bracelet and watch. To finish the look Kate wore her hair in a low chignon and matched her shoes and clutch.

On the couple’s next visit to Australia’s Houses of Parliament, this time Canberra, Kate wore a green Catherine Walk coat dress. Green has been a favourite of Kate’s over the Royal Tour. I have to admit I found this one particularly bright and not  overly well styled. A neat updo or half-updo would have suited Kates hair better with this dress as the neckline is so high.

As part of their final engagements, the Royal Couple celebrated Anzac Day, a day of national remembrance for those who served in Wars or conflicts for Australia and New Zealand. To mark the occasion Kate donned a beautiful Michael Kors Coat from his Spring collection. The full skirted navy/indigo and white coat was paired with a navy fascinator which sat on-top of Kate’s quite curly hair.

Favourite Looks from the Tour

Favourite Royal Tour Outfits

L-R. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

1. The yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress is bang on trend for Spring and Summer. Kate carried off the look to perfection with nude heels and a chic hairdo.

2. I am in love with this Taupe Roksanda Ilincic dress Kate wore stepping off the plane in Uluru!!

3. Another big trend for Spring/Summer, Blue and white floral Combos. This LK Bennett dress is high on my wishlist… or something similar! I love the longer sleeves and navy heels.

4. Kate wore another British favourite, Alexander Mc Queen, on Easter Sunday. Pastel blue looks lovely on Kate, although what doesn’t? The head piece adds even more class to the outfit.

5. The casual Zara blazer is fast becoming synonymous with Kate. I loved that on this occasion she styled her signature look with a gingham shirt instead of the typical striped shirt.

Let me know which look you liked the best from the Royal Tour 2014!

Best Dressed October 2013

Now that November is upon us, it’s time to recap the best looks from October; the month that Miley covered up, (who would have thought!) and, of course,  the month Prince George made his second public appearance. Winter has landed as many opted to cover up and keep it chic.

Bundled Up for Winter

Blake Lively, the new face of L’Oreal Paris, stepped out in New York in an Isabel Marant cosy jumper with printed leggings. This is a look I’m sure will divide many, but personally I think Blake could wear a bin bag and look fabulous!

Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo Jumpers

Fashion Princess Olivia Palermo looked super chic in black and white in New York on October 9th.  Olivia takes this look from ordinary to chic by adding a belt to accentuate her minuscule waist.

Cream of the Crop

Kate Middleton and Baby George co-ordinated their beautiful dresses on October 23rd. Kate looked elegant in Alexander Mc Queen, with matching hat, while George wore a handmade replica of the royal christening gown.

Black to the Bone     

Actress Clara Paget attended a Gucci party on Bond Street, London, last month. Clara looked elegant in her below the knee dress with sheer detailing across the chest and long sleeves. This is perfect way to dress for the colder winter months and still look fashionable.

Nicole Scherzinger is becoming a regular feature on my Monthly Best Dressed list!  Nicole accessorised a figure hugging black one piece with a fun leopard print handbag and white shoes in London.

MTV presenter Laura Whitmore wore this black Christopher Kane creation to the Scottish Fashion Awards on October 9th,  demonstrating that sheer is definitely not going anywhere for winter.

Cara Delevinge brought some high fashion to the AMFAR event in Brazil. Cara accessorised her plain black jumpsuit with matching diamanté belt and necklace.

English rose and everyone’s favourite Crawley, Michelle Dockery, looked lovely in black at a ChildLine event in the Savoy Hotel London. The shoes let this outfit down but Michelle can carry them off.

Charlize Theron brought life to her simple black gown with intricate shoulder embellishments, a big trend from Spring/Summer 2014, as she attended the Beverly Hills Arts Gala.

Naya Rivera and Olivia Wilde wore similar white print trends.  Glee actress Naya, who was wedding dress shopping in LA, looked runway ready with her black bag and nude heels in her structured dress. Olivia sported a higher neck line and longer hem line to the International Women’s Foundation.

Samantha Barks looked radiant in a printed mini dress at the Classic Brit Awards on October 2nd. The newly single actress matched her shoes to the subtle gold tones running through her dress.

Hunger Games actress Elizabeth banks wore a red printed crop top and matching skirt to the Variety Power of Women event on October 5th.

Casual Ladies

Cheryl Cole and Selena Gomez looked effortless this month in leather look trousers and white tops.

Model Karlie Kloss looked amazing as she posed for Coach’s new collection on the streets of New York.

Julianne Hough and Lily Collins kept it causal but chic, at the 30Seconds to Mars concert in LA on October 13th. Julianne paired a plaid red top with a black leather jacket, leggings, gorgeous boots and a fun hat. Lily wore a long camel coat which she also accessorised with black.

Miley Cyrus wore this long sequined green number to The Fashion Group International event on October 22nd.  Somehow I have a feeling we won’t see Miley this covered up for a long time to come.

Miley Cyrus and Ashley Roberts

Ashley Roberts wore a dark green jumpsuit, not unlike the same one Nicole Scherzinger wore last month to and Autism Fundraiser in London.

Not forgetting the Fellas!

Michael Fassbender looked sharp as he took a break from gracing the front pages of magazines to attend to The Councillor premiere in London, October 9th.

Michael Fassbender and Prince Harry

Prince Harry kept it simple with a crisp white shirt, navy chinos and brown suede shoes, on October 1st as he left the Book of Mormon theatre show in Notting Hill, London.
