Celebrity Get the look featuring Halle Berry, Samantha Barks and Holly Willoughby

I’m celebrating the fact that it is Friday and almost the weekend with some glorious style spots from a series of well dressed celebrities. Autumn is most definitely here and we are seeing this in the darker, muted colours, longer sleeves and knee-length dresses.

We are also have some nods to glamorous Christmas dressing from the gorgeous Rachel Riley, who wows week in, week out on Eight out of ten Cats does Countdown. Her stunning Needle and Thread dress is also available in a longer black version which is just perfect for Christmas black tie events.

But whilst most of us are getting used to the chillier feel of Autumn, some celebs are still lapping up the sunshine. Billie Faiers looks great in her Love kimono, which I think would also be great over jeans and a thin knit sweater for a sweet Autumn look.

Here are some of the looks that have been gaining attention in the last few weeks.

New Royal Baby Photo released – and Kate is wearing Seraphine.

At the stroke of midnight on the 20th August, a couple of gorgeous, much anticipated photographs were released to the public. Featuring a lovely young couple and their beautiful baby son, this could be any normal, proud family photograph. Except that this wasn’t any normal couple, and this certainly wasn’t any baby.

The photograph in question of course, features the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge cradling the sleeping Prince George. Lupo the dog also has a starring role, and the celebrity photographer was non other than proud grandad Michael Middleton. It is a really lovely, natural family shot that shows how happy and proud the couple are and is sure to warm the hearts of everyone who sees it.

This is a short post, but I couldn’t finish without mentioning how glad I am to see Kate looking beautiful and elegant in what is actually a maternity dress from Seraphine. Not bowing to any pressure to fit into those skinny jeans or pencil thin dresses just yet, Kate looks as supremely stylish as ever and shows once again that she does things her way.

The dress is sure to be a sell out, with Seraphine already announcing  ‘Due to high popularity of this style, please be advised that orders will be dispatched week commencing 16th of September’. The Kate effect is certainly striking again!

William and Kate welcome baby George to the World

After all the speculation and tantalising slips of the tongue indicating that Baby Cambridge was going to be a girl, Kate and William have now welcomed a beautiful little Prince by the name of George Alexander Louis to the world. And it seems the world is already besotted with the gorgeous little bundle.

Kate looked amazing, choosing to wear a cornflower blue and white dotted crepe de chine dress by Jenny Packham. This was a great stylish choice, the empire line showing that Kate had no intention of hiding her remaining baby bump, and the colour obviously echoing William’s blue jeans and shirt. The trusty Pied A Terre wedges made another appearance, making this a perfect outfit for what was a pretty sticky, hot day.

The choice of a dotted dress made me think back to when Princess Diana left the same hospital, St Mary’s Paddington, with baby William in June 1982. Diana had worn a green dotted maternity dress as she left hospital, a look that was roundly criticised at the time, both for the maternity style, and for the pop socks that she teamed with it. Kate’s dress, whilst definitely more well received, is a nice nod to the woman sadly no longer there to enjoy her first grandchild.

Today the Royal couple have left London for Bucklebury , where they will be able to enjoy some much deserved family bonding time. Kate was glimpsed through the car window, wearing another great look, this time from maternity brand Seraphine. The short-sleeved knot front dress is just lovely, with pretty knot detail, a great length, and comfy stretchy fabric, perfect for a new mom to travel in.
