If I am truly honest, the event I have most been awaiting this fashion year, aside from the obvious spate of weddings, is the occasion when Catherine,Duchess of Cambridge, makes her first official evening engagement since becoming a married women. And tonight it finally happened!
Kate and William are currently attending the 10th Annual absolute Return for kids Gala Dinner. This glamorous occasion calls for full evening glamour, and Kate has pulled out all the stops. Her gown is a show-stopping blush organza full length gown from Jenny Packham, shimmering with sequins and pretty chiffon sleeves. This dress is the absolute height of prettiness, and I love that Kate has worn her beautiful hair loose and flowing, making her look young and exquisitely pretty.
Meanwhile Pippa has also been showing her fashion credentials on a return visit to the Goring Hotel. Attending a beach party in a gorgeous Maje dress, Pippa looked fabulous in what must be one of my favourite Pippa looks, but she was almost overshadowed by her amazing mom Carole, who wore a really stylish kimono style dress.
Tennis fan Pippa also looked great at the Queens Tennis club this week, when she sported this season’s hottest shade, white, for an afternoon of tennis in the traditional warm-up to Wimbledon.
There is a hot weekend of Kate fashion almost upon us, with Trooping the colour, Prince Philip’s 90th birthday and the Order of the Garter ceremony….I can hardly wait!
