Daring Dress for Royal Kate

Friday, October 14, 2011

TRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. From The Daily Mail.

Over her tenure as a royal girlfriend, Kate Middleton developed a careful fashion sense and style both in her day wear and in evening apparel.  Many fashion pundits thought her much too reserved, but if there was one thing Kate dared to do it was flash stunning necklines.  Some of Kate's most beautiful evening gowns are the perfect example.  At her first evening gala after she became HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, and Baroness Carrickfergus she debuted a stunning dress, but with an out of "style-character" high neckline, and continued that trend at the BAFTA night.  I wondered if it was her new preferred look, but last night the Duchess wowed again in a Beulah London evening gown with a plunging neck like the old days.  As a singleton, her evening gowns showed more skin all around, but Kate has added a royal twist wearing a dress with full sleeves. Lovely balance!

This seemed the perfect night for an Issa, and although everything about the dress is very much of Issa ilk, it is another label.  Although, some of my readers do not think Kate has moved on from Issa-- time will tell, but I am inclined to think we will see Issa rarely, if at all.  Tonight seems to be a further indicator of that.

This little surprise appearance has certainly made my day!    Also in C&W news, the two apparently use Boris Bikes to pedal around London--presumably anonymously?  Well, not anymore!  Every tourist and royal fan will be scanning passing bikes hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds.  Wills must be mad. Ah well, they can always resort to the motorcycle, I suppose.  Nothing lends anonymity like bundles of protective gear and full helmet.  Of course, nothing says, possible death trap, like that either, so you win some, you lose some.

Wondering when you will catch another glimpse of the glowing Kate?  @liltinglimes suggests this December 5th charity evening as a possibility:
