Duchess Kate proves red coats are not just for Santa

I love a nice red coat, and it seems I’m in good company. Last weekend the Duchess of Cambridge attended a rugby match wearing her lovely LK Bennett. full length red coat, looking both snug and stylish for the outdoor event. This was one outfit you could not blame her for recycling, what could look more warm and festive than a red coat? (Just ask Santa – he’s sure to agree.)

Kate’s red coat look is all over the High Street and internet at the moment, with nearly all the High Street big boys having a red coat in their seasonal collection. And why not? A red coat is a great way to get colour into your wardrobe, with a shade to suit almost every colouring. It looks good with so many different colours, from classic black to cobalt blue and emerald-green, or neutral beige and creams if you prefer. And it never dates, you can buy a red coat now and be sure to still be wearing it in years to come, a perennial fave that you can always turn to. What’s not to love?

Charlotte Casiraghi… The Royal Face of Gucci

This week Gucci unveiled its new face, and this one has a title. Charlotte Casiraghi, aka a Princess of Monaco and Granddaughter of the legendary Princess Grace, is the latest beauty to promote the Italian brand. No stranger to Gucci, Charlotte has been the face of its equistrian line for some time, but has now been photographed by Peter Lindbergh for the mainline collection.

The photographs are beautiful, and Charlotte is truly a stunning choice, a stylish, elegant presence for such a prestige brand with a proud heritage. Frida Giannini, creative director for Gucci, says, “Charlotte brings the spirit of Gucci to life so elegantly. I am delighted to be able to celebrate Gucci’s icons of heritage with someone who is so connected to the history and essence of this house.”

The super stylish princess looks amazing in the photographs, which retain a horsey feel. Resembling a 1970s Natasha Kinski, or the daughter Jane Birkin never knew she had, I love that the outfits are so covered up,making Charlotte look like a very modern Princess.
