As promised, I would do a little coverage of Kate's looks from her and her husband's tour of North America. So I chose a few of my favorites.
For the Citizenship Ceremony at the Canadian Museum of Civilisation, Catherine wore a white, ruffle dress by Reiss. She accented it with a red fascinator, Anya Hindmarch Fan Clutch, and red Hobbs shoes.
At the Tree Planting Ceremony, Catherine wore a grey Catherine Walker dress with one of my favorite pair of Tabitha Simmons pumps. Her clutch is Hobbs.
I really have to commend her for wearing those shoes to dig dirt. Probably wouldn't have been me.
For her arrival at the Calgary Airport, the Duchess wore a pretty summer yellow dress by Jenny Peckham which she wore with LK Bennett nude pumps.
And, you could tell that it was really gusty.
This was by far my favorite look. Maybe it's because I'm from Texas even though I don't own any cowboy boots, shirt, or hat. For the Calgary Stampede, she and her husband rocked jeans. Catherine wore an Alice by Alice Temperley blouse and Goldsign Bootcut Jeans. Of course the hat is a Stetson. Even I know that Stetson is the Cadillac of cowboy hats.
Also in Calgary, the couple visited the ENMAX Conservatory, Calgary Zoo. Catherine stepped out of the box and wore-gasp!-a red Catherine Walker coat dress with her LK Bennett nude pumps along with the Queen's maple leaf brooch.
For the British Consul-General Private Reception, Catherine wore a beautiful green Diane von Furstenberg dress and a DVF snakeskin clutch. I like seeing her in a color other than navy, cream, beige...Unfortunately, she wore those nude LK Bennett. Again.
Finally, for National Canada Day, Catherine looked royal in a purple Issa dress. Her shoes are actually navy Prada, and her clutch is by Anya Hindmarch. For a change of pace, she wore her hair back. I haven't really minded her hair loose because I would if I had her beautiful head of hair.
Overall, I would give Catherine a solid B+. She looked appropriate. However, I think that she looks so good when she wears color. Just because you are in the royal family doesn't mean that you have to wear boring navy, beige, and pastels. I mean, look at the Queen.
She is rocking the colorblocking trend with hot pink and lavender. LOVE!
