Any bets that after shirking Christmas, Kate will lose out on more nice clothes? Even more bargain bin stuff for her since she pulled this power play. While HM is sick, Charles will surely be more in charge and frankly I believe Kate will get NOTHING by way of new items and won't get new jewels either. No way is Kate going to be going on small shopping sprees or buying new candles or splurging on big jewels. I hope Charles has canceled the credit cards/black AMEX.

I'm amazed she made it out of the Jubilee year alive. Frankly, she might not make it to her usual vacation after this BS stunt, shirking the Christmas and Charles SHOULD make it clear that if she leaves the country, she is not welcome back to the palaces. That kind of ultimatum would send a VERY clear message. I wonder if she will in fact have the suicidal gall to go on her usual vacation. If she does, it'll be a downward slope and frankly I believe this will be the year in which she permanently destroys what LITTLE credibility she has left.

Revealed: Why the Duchess of Cambridge only ever carries a clutch bag - and the reason makes her seem VERY standoffish

Kate, 34, is rarely seen without a small box clutch on official engagements
Often carries her bag in front of her, clutching it with both hands
Etiquette experts believe it's a way of avoiding unwanted handshakes
But William Hanson says there's no need to deploy accessory as a shield


But now MailOnline's expert in all things mannerly William Hanson says that the Kate is going about things the wrong way by using her handbag as a shield.
'The Duchess of Cambridge may well prefer not to shake hands with certain people - but there are other ways to achieve this, as used by The Queen and other members of the royal family, than opting for a clutch over a bag with a strap,' he told FEMAIL.

Fur belongs to beautiful animals and ugly people  -  they sure got that saying right.  If they think we believe the baby alpacas dies of "natural causes" then they really are utterly stupid.  Most of us do have intelligence, far more than the writers it would appear.  How gross, no way could  wear something made out of baby alpaca, I vomit at the thought.  Disgusting creature wearing it, how could she - oh yes, like her ma, hard as nails without a conscience.

^ Waity hunts and she wore a fur hat a few years ago too. So she definitely wears fur and shedoesn' t care about respecting animals.
Well, she doesn' t care about respecting anyone too.

What a bad move actually. In Italy fur is seen as something rather shameful to wear, if a publicperson like Waity is, wears it, that person is harshly criticized by the media.
I don' t know about English people though.

Diana did wear a white mink coat to the opera at times when she went there with HM and Charles; she did have her furs and it was the Eighties when having a fur was considered high class. I( do think however that Kate's attempts to come across as humanitarian is what strikes me as hypocritical.

I have no problem with people wearing fur in climates where it would be life threatening not to do so. Like Siberia, Canada and places in the USA like North Dakota etc. (-43C a few days ago).  But there's no need for her to do so.

That's what I found disappointing.  :sigh:

Going back to the fur, I think you all made very good points for one simple reason: WK wants to live like its the 80s, when royalty and excess and things like that were different than they are now. It was acceptable for PD to wear her fur coat, but it is not, for the various reasons outlined above, acceptable for WK to do the same. I think that they want to pretend to live in the past. Certainly Ma has ideas about raising her daughters that are more eighteenth century than 1985.


Title: Re: Duchess of Cashbridge: The fashion files 2017
Post by: Kuei Fei on February 07, 2017, 01:56:26 am
Thing is, that this is an issue I do have with mainstream middle class values: somehow the past is idealized by people who would in reality, not be living easy lives. If Kate and Carole and Pippa and Ratboy were in the eighteen hundreds, or even in 1985, none of them would have gone to 'good' schools and socialized with the titled. Kate would likely be a kept woman, Pippa the local strumpet, and Carole a hardworking housekeeper at the squire's manor. Not living a life of comfort and success in owning a business and married to a prince.

WHY Kate and Co. embrace such a value system as a 'good marriage' is truly beyond my comprehension.


Title: Re: Duchess of Cashbridge: The fashion files 2017
Post by: Demeter on February 11, 2017, 02:29:37 am
Well, I know that and you know that, but do they? I do very, very, much think they embrace this idealized view of themselves and their roles, as they have an idealized and sanitized view of their family history and connections. They would sooner imagine themselves as the Bennet sisters, which makes me want to scream, because not even Lydia Bennet deserves that comparison. The social mobility they benefit from is very much a modern thing.

I've got no problems with coal miners or whatever it is their family did. I'm sure most are very genuine people. But what bothers me most is the faux signet ring and the purchased titles as though they are too good now to admit to using their 'middle class card' to cry discrimination and force their way into the set they now cling unto. I cannot imagine things said about them behind closed doors.

Anyway, I'm off topic. Apologies. Back to fashion...

I wonder why she can't grasp that she can't just live for herself anymore, but has to live for her people and nation. Seeking out good British designers is something that she should be doing and it is something that she should be promoting. It's a pity she keeps trying to be freer than she's entitled to be.


Title: Re: Duchess of Cashbridge: The fashion files 2017
Post by: Demeter on February 11, 2017, 07:21:24 pm
I think she resents the lifestyle of women like her sister, or the future lifestyle of her sister, who by virtue of the man she marries, will not be accountable to a nation and can jet off to Paris and load up on Dior twice a year.

Kate wanted Will, actively worked to make the relationship happen. She knew what was expected. I have little sympathy for the 'woe is me' act I'm sure goes on behind closed doors at Anmer or wherever they are living. If you chose to represent the UK, then the clothes on your back should represent them, especially since she does little by word or action to represent her nation.


Title: Re: Duchess of Cashbridge: The fashion files 2017
Post by: Kuei Fei on February 11, 2017, 07:30:43 pm
Same here.

She grew up in the UK, grew up in the nation of England, sang "God Save the Queen" as a child from birth and now we're supposed to think that she didn't know what she was getting into? I am so ticked at how she keeps moaning about how she has a miserable life. I ma fed up with the expectation that I Have to feel sorry for her just because she threw her entire life away and ended up trying to freeload on a life of unaccountable privilege.

She chose to sell herself, no one could have made her stay if she didn't want to.

She chose to go along with all of that and chose to basically be a mooch and be selfish and do horrendous harm to so many decent people. She wasn't even WANTED and she was hinted at to go away and was encouraged by William at times. Instead she stuck around and continued to hurt so many people and damage countless reputations. She could have struk out on her own and basically earned more than enough money, but wanted to mooch.

Oh.  My.  God.  That frock is truly horrendous.  Looks like old curtain fabric my granny had in the "front room" as they used to call it.  Stiff, ugly and does not suit the style of this horrid frock. Black, is she in mourning, seems her favourite colour.  Maybe she should become a professions Wake Follower, all that black. As for her face, ever worse than the frock, she looks the spitting image of council caro.  No way can she carry off that style, and she does not look overly comfortable in it.  Must be one of her slapper trio who advised her to wear it.  Are we sure it is McQueen?  If it is their days ar over if that is the best they can do.  That up makes her face look very hard, as for the trashy looking earrings, would need proof they were loaned to her from the family vault, although will say they suit the rest of the trashy look she gave out last night.  Again, the top of the frock looks very childish, not the style an adult, mature, stylish woman would choose.  They say look at the mother in law and that is the wife in 25 years, and my isn´t it true, although did not take 25 years with her  -  never seen her look quite as bad as this, a big, major fail in the fashion stakes, that frock is truly horrendous.

Primark is a cheap shop that sells clothing, bedding, household goods, etc.  All cheap and cheerful.   https://www.primark.com/en/homepage

Asprey is a British jeweller  -  http://www.asprey.com/

Aldi I think is a German company, it is like a supermarket.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldi

We also have Lidl, another German company, and that is also a supermarket  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidl

I would say Iceland a little more downmarket than Tesco, but other Brits might think differently.  I think most supermarkets are much of a muchess these days personally.

^^One big difference  -  the Avengers woman always looked well turned out, confident and did not act in a vulgar fashion.  Other than that she could be from the Avengers in the 60´s.  This one, for some reason, her clothes always look tatty.  Have you seen the photo of her from the back, the seam on the jacket looks awful, as if one of them has taken it in, and badly.

Look at the pockets, they do not sit nicely at all, especially when you consider it was allegedly over 700 GBP  -  must have seen her coming, she is no advert for the designer that much is for sure, because based on that jacket, and the price tag on it, no way would would I purchase any from that label.  It looks like a limp red dishrag.

The designer names looks Italian to me, could be wrong, but if so the Italian designers are normally very good, but obviously not this one.  They mention the council cath effect again, but who, in general, can afford to pay 760 GBP for an ordinary blazer, cheap material and badly made, people are struggling to pay their mortgage and feed their kids.

We all know the Duchess of Cambridge to be a whizz at recycling her clothes and her labels.

She often sticks to old favourites like Hobbs, Erdem, L.K. Bennett, Catherine Walker and Alexander McQueen but today she ventured out into the unknown in this très chic jacket by Philospohy di Lorenzo Serafini.

This label is better known for its floaty, ethereal creations as seen on style mavens like Alessandra Ambrosio, Bella Hadid, Sarah-Jessica Parker and Suki Waterhouse but this blazer is an altogether more tailored affair.

In regal red it looks wonderful against her brunette hair and adds a much needed pop of colour to an otherwise all-black ensemble. And the good news for all fans of Kate's wardrobe is this is one piece you can actually snap up for your own.

So click (right) before the Duchess effect takes hold and layer over denim and crisp white tees this season. Or shop our pick of similar jackets below from the likes of Sandro and Forever 21.

The Kate Effect made me – then broke me

Quote
Having Kate Middleton wear your dress for her engagement interview would be fashion gold for most designers. But for Daniella Helayel it was the beginning of the end. Here, for the first time, she opens up to Katie Nicholl about the rise and dramatic demise of her A-list label Issa   

The story of Issa, the label that was catapulted into a global brand and championed by the A-list, and then, as quickly as it rose, was left in tatters, is something of fashion legend. Which is why the return of Issa’s flamboyant Brazilian-born designer Daniella Helayel following an unexpected two-year hiatus from the industry is the cause of huge excitement.

And, having had a sneak preview of her new spring/summer collection – which boasts a riot of colour, a return of her vibrant prints and the welcome revival of her trademark draped silk-jersey dresses – the fashion pack will not be disappointed.

Dhela – a play on Daniella’s name – combines the best of the designer’s signature style and, just like her original label Issa, the clothes are cut to suit and flatter.

‘I began designing to make women feel gorgeous. This was my philosophy when I launched Issa, and it’s my philosophy now,’ says Daniella, who floats around her Chelsea townhouse in a vintage Issa kaftan despite the plunging temperatures outside.

Her stuff is neat and does serve a good market; pity she wasn't prepped for the 'Kate Effect', but easy come, this is what happens.

Strikes me that a lot of talented designers are not big on preparation and are not at all prepped for mass orders or success itself.

Who the h*ll wants to be compared with a downmarket sink estate slapper like council cath.   Can´t image HM being pleased if the courtiers pass her that article.

^Hideous, hair do, well, all I can say on that one is if we paid for it I want a refund.  Dead eyes, shoes did not match frock.  Quite a mess really on every front.

The outfit today was diabolical too.

And look at the face on it, enough to turn the milk sour.  No crowd turnout either.

And she is back to the short hems again I note, another two fingers to HM, who has no doubt made it clear they are not suitable for these engagements.

The three tarts we employ for her are pretty good at making her look a mess aren´t they.  The hair do today looks as though he has a piece of dog poop stuck on the back of it.  She lurches from bad to worse every time.  The word fashion and council cath should never be in the same sentence.

Both outfits were a major mistake.  The colour of that lacey frock was too pale for her, washed her out, the shoes looked like something from a Disney cartoon.  The hair, the less said about that the better.

Today that suit was awful, seen better at the Oxfam shop, really horrid, and again far too short for such an engagement.  As for the hair, well I already said it looks like a piece of poop stuck to the back of her head, grey hair showing through, she looked like an old lady from olden times.  God knows what her team of tarts get paid, but they need sacked, immediately, as they are not worth one penny of it.

All the money spent on those outfits, and in reality it was a personal jolly to watch the rugby. So pleased France won on this occasion.  To cover it up after negative remarks about it being a jolly for the odious duo, up pop two events at the British Embassy, a short visit with Hollande, neither of the two twits can speek French, and a fortune spent on ghastly outfits.  When you think of the severely under funded NHS, homeless veterans, kids going to school without breakfast, wearing clothing form cast offs at the clothing banks, and who would dearly love a brand new tee shirt, even if it only cost a couple of pounds, and yet council cath gets away with spending thousands on the most ghastly outfits, it does not make sense.  And all for a rugby match.  Bill medd could have gone to that on his own and saved the taxpayer a fortune.  No idea why they allow her to spend fortunes on clothes, very little of what she wastes the money on suits her, is too short, too matronly, horrid colours/patterns.  Stick her in the tower and leave her there, much better idea for all concerned.

I don't even care for her dressing frumpy or not, that's partly down to taste, what bothers me is, why on earth does she wear always the same??? Taking the lace of a dress she already has but cutting it based on the new dress design, which looked with the original lace better. Then the new dress has the same weird part below the bum as the old dress. Not even fully keeping with the new design. wtf are those useless alterations? andthe new kiki earrings could be old as well..  :Kate:

Not so thrifty after all! How Kate spent more than £57,000 on new clothes and accessories in the first quarter of 2017 (putting her on course to have her most expensive year yet)

The Duchess of Cambridge, 35, is shaping up to have a very expensive 2017 as she's already dwarfed her entire 2015 wardrobe spend in the first quarter of this year.

Carole was caught out wearing a hat that was supposed to go to Kate and I am certain that Pippa has been getting bonuses from William every so often. The house in Berkshire and of course, Carole living at Anmer ordering staff around and quaffing the best wines and champagnes. I do think Kate has been buying nice stuff, but only wearing the worse stuff publicly. It could well be that Kate is secretly buying all sorts of nice stuff from foreign houses.

^^I honestly don't think it's the suit but, Kate!  If Queen Leitza wore the same suit we'd be going "gaga" over it.  The problem with Kate is that she is one of those people who thinks the "label" means that she will look great whereas someone like QL wears her clothes so she makes the label look fantastic and we all want to go and buy it (regardless of whether or not it suits us  lol).  Diana also had it and I can remember as a young woman buying several outfits similar to Diana's because of how great they looked on her. 

Sadly for Kate, she may have the ring but, she will never have the style and elegance of Diana.  Let's remember that Diana enlisted a Vogue editor to help her look as great as she did and I'm sure QL would have done something similar.  Kate on the other hand seems to rely on her mother and friends to style her and they're letting her down because they're just not up to the job.

Looking good on the public stage means taking time out to listen to professionals but, Kate doesn't seem to want to do this. With King Phillipe and QL due to visit the UK in June Kate had better start getting her act together because QL will wipe the floor with her when it comes to "looking the part" of King's Consort.

If Natasha was up to the job she wouldn't allow Kate to make a beautiful Armani suit look like a cheap "knock off".  The sleeves on the suit Kate is wearing are too short and the skirt is too tight.  Having seen a picture (on another forum of the suit) on the original model, Kate makes it like looks at a completely different suit!

As for the coat dresses, they are so boring, she must have a whole store room full of them by now.  Luxembourg were so unimpressed with her.  Just hear from a friend of mine who is on hols there at the moment, apparently no excitement about the visit, public press ganged into making it look as if they were waiting to see her.   Nobody impressed, at all.  Luxembourg awash with gossip as to why the h*ll she was there anyway, total waste of space, boring person, who appeared, surprise surprise, eager to get away.  Always interesting when you get these snippets from people on the ground.

That coat dress was horrendous, not because it looks terrible as such, but because Waity looked once again the same as always, the coatdress has the exact same cut as one of the green ones she wore for St Pat's Day, and generally follows the samey cut as many of her other clothes. If she wanted sth powder blue she could have chosen literally amongst a dozen other coatdresses she already has. Always diasppointing to see her.
And then she debuted new overpriced Kiki earrings that cost a fortune and looked like cheap paste jewellery on her.
At least she still lays off the eyeliner a bit and has her wigs blow dried in a different way.
The article has been pulled pretty fast from the front page of her visit to Lux....

Seems as if she is out to grab all she can whilst she can.  Also says that coat is bespoke, but it is very poor made, especially the crease at the front beneath lapel and above belt.  If that is bespoke tailoring then she needs to go elsewhere, it is visible in every photo.

Regardless, the woman doesn't wear anything, including jewelry, within any true regal presence.  I haven't seen it yet anyway.  The coat dress, however bespoke it may have been, was still not quite right.  Maybe it's her posture?  The acres of hair?  The face?  The phoniness?  The wearying beige pumps?  So many choices, so little chance of it improving.

Just gurning, snort-laughing, crotch pressing, and hair twiddling. Any attempts to make her look useful at this point just make her look more stupid because that facade she wears has many cracks (pun intended and it stays).

Rebecca Deacon, Kate's soon-to-step down private secretary.  This is the woman who would have had the most access (aside from her wardrobe lady who is a complete failure) to tell Kate that something may be amiss with how she looks in public and photographed.  Can we see her underwear underneath that skirt?   Anyway, it's a stinker.

re: dress kate wore to Pippa wedding.

some people have sharp eyes to notice the similarities; about 3/4 down the post:

Quote
the dress has elements from previous McQueen designs, including one Kate has worn. Below left, the Ivory Crepe Pencil Dress and second from the right, the green McQueen gown worn by the Duchess to the 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards. Both have the fitted bodice with the deep v-neck and billowing sleeves; Kate’s sleeves are cuffed with three self-covered buttons.


i wonder if mcqueen used her on file measurements to create the dress thus the droopy bust ....  ?

She doesn't have that since she is an adult who shouldn't need a minder; she shouldn't need an adult to discipline her into dressing right and making sure that her privates don't advertise her long term experience (a kind of play on how all jobs prefer someone with experience).

At the risk of being flamed, if needs someone to have a minder to make sure they dress right with everything covered, obviously they don't belong married and having adult responsibilities, they need to be in a care home for the mentally ill and need to live in restricted living conditions and on welfare.

It's the same with giving WK&H a talking to about behaving right at appearances; they should know by now how to handle things and should be well behaved. This childishness is in my view is what has led to the royals being utterly unable to deal with the littlest things in life. Or handle people who are pushy.

    The Duchess of Cambridge has been sporting the £50 White 2750 Cotu Classics
    Chose them for an intimate family portrait that appears in the new issue of GQ
    Wore them on her Canadian tour, at the London marathon, and when off duty
    The brand claim that they have seen sales double since Kate showed an interest

^^Actually, that's the Superga classic kick sold in US for $30+ at Target and rack stores.  They're marketed for the 10-14 y/o here but a bargain, for once.  I needed a pair of boat shoes to carry as a spare on a sailing outing and tried them because they were in the reduced bin at Skechers.  Awful shoes; like cardboard and cheaply made.  Chose good old Sperry Topsiders instead.  Great grip.  Not sure what good these shoes are because they are not trainers by any means.  She's such a klunk.

I wonder how long until the press just throws up their hands and gives up. Kate hasn't been their little moneymaker and clearly Charles is not shelling out the pounds for couture, or the couture houses are in fact locking her out. At some point the press will realize that bashing her fashion sense will in fact sell and tell the truth a lot more honestly. It must frustrate Kate that she can't manipulate HM or Charles into giving her what she wants.

^ However, as soon as the Queen dies Willie will get all the millions each year of Duchy of Cornwall money. Vogue has Kate's wardrobe costing about £57,300 a year. That's pounds not dollars, and that doesn't count in the money for her wardrobe when on tour. The DM calculated that on the the Canadian tour last year, Kate's clothing bill for that one tour came in at over £60,000. Charles has to fork out the money for wardrobe in her official life, tours, engagements. I think he'll be glad when William does have to pay!

Also, the fact that she chose AGAIN to upstage HM by wearing fluorescent pink and dressing the 2 fraudlings in coordinating pink at The Trooping of the Color. In addition, it was so insensitive to flaunt that screaming color in such a time of tragedy. Council Cath never disappoints now does she?

^ Indeed.
To me it kind of looks like an underhanded Diana copy if you so will; it kind of just struck me. Diana at Kate's age now wore loads of Italian designers and quite a bit of French too; she was divorced, basically out of the family and had greater freedom to wear brands she just wanted to. Kate seems to be doing the same; she's just simply for no apparent reason switched from mainly British to loads of Italian with some French. And she probably thinks it's her right, because Diana did so too at that age, without taking into account their very different circumstances (& popularity).
But I could be wrong, it just came into my head and I haven't thought about it too much (& don't intend to hehe!).

PW needs to find his stones, take back his life and sick his guards on her, have her arrested and file the damn restraining order already.  End. Of. Enough has been enough of this shytfest to last an eternity. Next!

I'm reminded of people who go through life thinking that the elite is just WAITING for them and if they only push further, they'll find that Elysium that is supposedly waiting for her. Frankly, it's likely becoming clear that she made the biggest mistake of her life and she can't cope. She's likely not able to handle the fact that there is in fact nothing for her in William's life. As for divorce, if he had had the stones to sic the police on her in 2007, he would be more credible. I think her mother fed her a pile of BS that she belonged to the upper class and that she was just as good as them and would be considered so. So Kate refused to leave what she thought was her rightful place and decided to basically stay since she thought it would all work out in time. Instead it hasn't. If she ends up facing stark realities, she might not be able to handle it.

As for her looks, she is experiencing the effects of her lifestyle in her twenties and her smoking and her boozing.

^ Indeed. To me it kind of looks like an underhanded Diana copy if you so will; it kind of just struck me. Diana at Kate's age now wore loads of Italian designers and quite a bit of French too; she was divorced, basically out of the family and had greater freedom to wear brands she just wanted to. Kate seems to be doing the same; she's just simply for no apparent reason switched from mainly British to loads of Italian with some French. And she probably thinks it's her right, because Diana did so too at that age, without taking into account their very different circumstances (& popularity).

She keeps trying (and failing) to basically have it both ways and it's costing her dearly.

^KM Wardrobe Secrets

1. Go into a high end designer boutique and pick the ugliest most boring dresses they have, if they don't have any have them alter the dresses they have until they are the ugliest most boring dresses ever.
2. Make sure all skirts and dresses are short enough to flash everyone when you are sited or when you bend over and that they blow up in the wind, in fact make sure to wear them on windy days.
3. Pick skin tight pants and jeans that guarantee camel toe.
4. Pick low neck tops.
5. Finish off every outfit with boring ugly heels and wedges.

Kate's secret style inspiration: How Princess Diana was the original trendsetter for the £50 Superga trainers popularised by the Duchess

    The Duchess of Cambridge helped to double sales of Superga this year
    However, it seems that it was another who was the original trendsetter
    Pictures prove that Princess Diana was first to wear the Italian footwear
    Seen wearing a navy pair of lace-ups during a visit to Angola in 1997

Is the dm catching onto Kate's blatant and creepy copying of her late mil?

Also seems like the dm has their story from twitter (or the forums), nothing new there
"It turns out Princess Diana also liked Superga sneakers. [...]"
https://twitter.com/WhatKateWore/status/884607061362954240

If the dm is watching, here they can have a field day and make dozens of articles on Kate's copying her mil, though as hint: she also copies Jecca and some others, but Jecca & Diana must be in dozens of Kate's scrapbooks

The tiara will likely be the only one she is permitted to use from here on out and I am certain that she's clearly out of favor with HM. As for the emotions, she looks desperately unhappy. At best hostile, but at the worst, clearly out of her element and unhappy. If not for the unhappy look in her eye and clear evidence of rejection, she would look stunning in that color and tiara. I do like the necklace though to be honest. Yet, this is what she chased; I am sure she had warning signs that she would end up miserable, but go figure, she didn't heed them. As for the tiara, it is the Cambridge Lover's Knot, not just Princess Diana's and so really, I think this is the best way to move on. I don't think she gets to choose anything to be honest.

No orders, no jewels from Middle Eastern sheiks (something that Diana got right off the bat) and I don't believe that Kate will ever be invited to the Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia or Bahrain or UAE.

So true, that "fasion icon" status is a joke and any woman marrying in will get it, esp those higher up the line. Though why they stick with it I don't get. In the beginning it was understandable, but now?

Interestingly, she received some nice-ish jewellery for her wedding, like that diamond and ruby necklace (the rubies make tiny kiddie appropriate flowers) and she hasn't been seen in it in years. After the first year the jewellery she got for the wedding just disappeared. The bracelet she received from Camz too. She wore that all the time first year and since it's been confined to gather dust. Also the diamond bracelet received from Chuck, where is that?

Things like tonight at the museum would have been a great opportunity to dust off some of the stuff, even that diamond/ ruby necklace for sparkle, but nope... She also could have things altered, she's addicted to ruining clothes, why not try it with jewellery? Diana altered many things too, incl much of what she received for her wedding. A shame to throw the things in a drawer and wear that damn kiki stuff exclusively almost.

It is indeed telling that the Saudis have not showered her in lavish sparkle, even after all these years. I bet she's praying for a tour there every night just for the gifts, but it's not happeing and I doubt it will anytime soon.

Is Kate taking style cues from Ivanka? Eagle-eyed fashion watchers notice the Duchess' custom Jenny Packham dress is VERY similar to Ms Trump's Lela Rose gown

    President Trump's daughter wore a zingy yellow Lela Rose gown in DC this week
    On Thursday the Duchess of Cambridge wore similar design by Jenny Packham
    Kate, 35, is currently on a royal tour of Germany and Poland with her family
    She has worn a mix of bespoke designer pieces mixed with high street classics

Don't like the belt in the original design (it's "edgy"), but Kate's is much worse, doesn't fit at all... The dress is true to her style though.

^100% agree on that.   That awful frock she wore yesterday, the him was all over the place, and such bad sewing as well.  Plus the frock stuck to her legs.  Look how it clings to here on this photo

The frock keeps doing this, clinging to her legs

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFPzkLzXUAAv61E?format=jpg

It has been said many times that she buys her stuff from the Upmarket Outlet place in Gloucestershire somewhere and she with her team of tarts do the altering  - so obvious this lilac jobbie has been altered.  The frock even clings to her legs when she is shaking hands with some policemen.  To say she has no idea of how to dress and what is appropriate is a major understatement.

^ I think she, Cruella and Pipsqueak visit Bicester Village in Oxfordshire where one can buy designer labels cheaply because they are last season's models.  If she's doing this, then I suggest she employs a decent dressmaker for the alterations, because her staff's attempts at changing some of the garments are shoddy and unprofessional.  And that vile, tacky red dress must have been lurking around since the mid 1970s!  The only improvement needed to that dress would be to burn it!

Exactly and that is her budget level; at this point in her marriage, Kate should be getting designer and couture and have mounds of jewels. I don't believe that she's happy with this state of affairs, but Charles isn't giving her things to lounge around in.

You know, we might think of Charles as a dolt at times, but stuff like this, he shows his subtle, but ruthless streak. He's not someone to be trifled with and Kate has been playing games with him and the RF nonstop and it's clear in areas like this that this is how he pushes back and even I daresay it's telling in more ways than one. He's showing that he is very aware of her games and is not going to refrain from pushing back where and how and when he can.

Duchess Kate spent $34,000 on clothes for the 5-day Germany-Poland trip

Quote
It’s said by all of the royal courtiers that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make their own schedules and determine what they will and will not do on royal tours. Historically, that’s been the biggest reason why the Cambridges’ tours have always been light on substance: both Will and Kate only really care about the image they’re creating, so they’ve always put a heavy emphasis on photo-ops and organized events where they can appear photogenic and happy. There’s always been a steep cost, of course. These tours cost a lot, with the tabs being picked up mostly by the host country, for everything from flowers to food to security.
http://www.celebitchy.com/543576/duchess_kate_spent_34000_on_clothes_for_the_5-day_germany-poland_trip/

I think royals these days should have more assigned to them rather than choosing. In the past royals might have been driven enough to challenge themselves, but these days it is clear that this is just a field trip and boutique tourist dalliance with diplomatic trappings.

From LAK in the comments from the link above:
"The Queen of Spain spent £9,000 in total on her wardrobe for the 4day state visit to the UK and that included 2 ballgowns."

They supposedly do only fluff for the photo-ops and good image, but the irony is that they are failing. Every tour has been called a holiday, partly even in headlines by the press. They'd get much better photos and PR if they did some heavier stuff and met with charities and some glamour, like Diana did (I think that was part of her winning formula - doing serious impactful stuff and being very glamorous); instead they just focus on looking pretty and that hasn't helped anyone in the long run.

Major fail because they don´t even look "pretty", either of them, a total mess in some of those photos from Poland/German Club Med holiday.  Has anyone ever told bill medd you don´t wear brown suede shoes with navy blue trousers.  He looks such a scruff, trousers always wrinkled, getting more and more unattractive by the week.  The King and Queen of Spain have a presence, and they look regal, not scruffs like these two.  The clothes of council cath look as if the team of tarts work on every one of them and make them look cheap and nasty.  Regal those two did not look, could have pulled them in from the street the state of them at times.

That article is poor BS. I skimmed over it. Firstly it claims Liz uses nail varnish, some pale pinky shade since he 1980s. I mean, really. Then it says Waity uses that mixed varnish regularly, even though her nails are clearly either bare or buffed, rarely does she wear varnish on her fingers, when she does it's noticeable and it's always clear; only on her toes does she do colour, and I swear to God, I think she uses the same Chanel shade Diana used to use and does the same as Diana: no varnish on fingers (she did that later when she divorced and wasn't working on behalf of Liz) but a stark colour on toes (sticking to reds, mainly burgundy). And lastly, I am a cosmetics addict and mix and match as I please, but never would I mix nail varnishes, esp between brands. I admit though that I'm not very much into nail varnish and a nail person will know what they are doing, but the chemical mix of nail varnishes is sth else than powder and foundation or lipstick or moisturizers and can create reactions, esp when mixing between brands. People are discouraged from mixing nail varnish and it's messy as heck (I was very briefly into nail vanishes a few years ago, but it was always to bothersome).
The two shades shown make little sense for mixes anyway. Two pale, basically translucent, pinks. Wow, how daring and revolutionary.  :wopedo:

Apart from total, she wouldn't want to wear any coloured nail varnish otherwise we'd all be looking at her nails instead of her precious Diana's ring.

Kate "chose a beautiful new black velvet coat by Catherine Walker tonight. The piece is a bespoke version of the Caressa Jacket (with thanks to Laura).The Caressa is described as "The structured, nipped in silhouette with a gentle flick at the hem contrasts beautifully with the full skirt. Jet, glass and silver Swarovski buttons lend a further eye-catching dimension oin this black silk velvet jacket"."

Something tells me she was forced to go to this gig - with a bunch of family members that she probably doesn't talk to much - and that's the cause for the sour face. She'd rather be at home.

Why is she wearing an Italian designer? https://whatkatewore.com/2017/11/12/duchess-dolce-gabbana-remembrance-sunday/

From the Festival of Remembrance: https://whatkatewore.com/2017/11/11/kate-catherine-walker-festival-remembrance/ A custom made Catherine Walker coat.

So that's two new black coats in two days. How many does she need?

Kate's £119K shopping bill: How the Duchess splashed out thousands on new clothing in 2017 - making it her most expensive year to date (including a designer ensemble that cost £13K)

    Femail has calculated cost of all the new items Kate wore throughout 2017
    Anything seen before or recycled was discounted from the list
    Her most expensive ensemble was £13K ($17,400) Chanel outfit worn in Paris
    Pippa's wedding outfit came a close second at £11,500 ($15,400)

Maybe no one cares enough about her to tell her to stop spending so much. So she spends, but no one admonishes her since they really truly don't care anymore and have given up on trying to help her help herself.

A large part of the big ticket items were new bling, which you effing can't see because her hair is always covering them! :angry:
Not a fan of kiki mcdonouch(or whatever her name is) anyway but dang it if you're gonna spend some serious dough on bling at least make sure we can see it!
such a waste of cash!
Of all the big outfit's there was one that I found ok: the Jenny Packham from paris, well put together with decent jewels (although earrings could have been a tat bigger imo)

The chanel dress was awful, if it weren't for the belt I would have never called that as a chanel piece! :thumbsdown:
The wedding outfit was yucky: poofy, bland it made her look soo old! powdery pink is not her shade :snob:
The rest is just boring... either it's a sporty outfit, a knee length jacket/dress/suit, or a tinner silky flower dress  :bored:
Oh and doesn't she have a single pair of non-skinny pants?! :o

Bloody hell even I have more variety in my wardrobe and I wear a damn uniform 5day's a week! :-

Even though Waity spends ridiculous amounts on clothes, I'm not taking the bait with this article. It was put out to distract from the negative press the engagement photo dress is getting and it's only making Kate look as though she's doing the taxpayer a favor. The engagement photo dress amounts to half of what Waity spent in an entire year.

^Who would've thought we'd ever see, read or think "She only spent $110,000!" which is what this article spawned right after the major extravagance disgust.  Well played, Kate.  Well played.

I thought, however, and was surprised to see the price tag on the fugly dress she wore to Pipster's wedding.  I thought it was one she already owned.  They all do look kind of alike.  The green coat they added in is an oldie, tho.  Or another version.  Plus, they added Ms. Quinn to the mix and she must've thrown some things out and started a more cultivated and organized wardrobe.  Or tried!  That would cost a bit.


Title: Re: Duchess of Cashbridge: The fashion files 2017
Post by: HRH Tiana of NOLA on December 23, 2017, 05:30:11 am
I expect to see a much more refined wardrobe now that Ms. Quinn is in the mix and Marbles has set the tone with her two most recent wardrobe choices.

I agree. This is  one of the very few times where another woman will entire her life and not want what she and ma middleton worked to achieve. Meghan made it known that Kate was "warm, kind,  welcoming & looking  forward to spending more time with her". So, I fingers crossed that these two will form a bond beneficial both to themselves and the stability of their family.
