Once again we have a number of updates to share, as well as some new images of Kate, so we’ll jump right in with this Us Weekly story about Kate visiting the hair salon last Friday.
Kate was sporting a winter white v-neck sweater with horizontal ribbing, black skinny jeans; it seems the change of seasons has brought the return of her black suede boots. She also carried the navy Mulberry bag we have seen previously, most recently on the runway as she boarded a flight to Canada back in June. The Polly Push Lock in midnight navy is available directly from Mulberry, priced at $1300.
From the story:
The 29-year-old royal stopped by her go-to hair haven, Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa, in London’s stylish Chelsea neighborhood where she sat all afternoon for a series of services including getting her hair colored with an organic vegetable-based hair dye.
There is another photo of Kate that seemed a little intrusive, so we aren’t sharing it, click here to see it and read the entire Us Weekly article.
Next, we have an exciting story to share about another Kate style blogger who actually saw Kate in London yesterday! Ashlin at Get What Kate Wore was in Topshop and noticed someone in line ahead of her who looked familiar…guess who?! In her post on the event, Ashlin says the Duchess appeared to be wearing the very same jeans and boots as those seen above in the Us Weekly story.
From what Ashlin shares Kate is said to have purchased a skirt that is now sold out, the Polka Dot Pencil skirt in green with black dots, it was £38.00.
She is also thought to have bought the Velvet Trim Boucle Jacket in a beautiful cobalt blue. (I like this style quite a bit.)
Next, the debate about whether or not Kate should pose for Vogue magazine, the US publication. That story first surfaced online late last week, and it gained traction when the NY Post published this piece:
Anna Wintour is still quietly but persuasively campaigning to land the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, for the cover of US Vogue.
Sources tell us that Wintour has been appealing to famed photographer Mario Testino, a close friend of the British royals, to reach out to the elegant newlywed to shoot her for the fashion bible.
The rumors have been squashed, Richard Palmer, the Royal Correspondent for The Express tweeted the definitive word from the Palace yesterday.
Richard went on to add:
In the wake of the rumors there has been a spot of fun with Photoshop, someVogue covers appeared, here are two of our favorites.
The image on the right is via Royal Photos on Twitter, the image on the left is from the creative folks at The Cut, one of our favorite blogs. We like it because they also came up with some fake stories to tease:
- “Do You Have Tiara Neck?”
- “Special Report: Everything You Need To Know About LK Bennett Wedges!”
- “Sheer Pantyhose: We’re All Wearing It”
The image on the right is from the very talented Charlotte at the Duchess Kate blog.
The Duchess of Cambridge should avoid Anna Wintour and US Vogue like the plague
From the blog post by Cristina Odone:
Anna Wintour, scary-wary editrix of American Vogue, is determined, by all accounts, to get to the Duchess of Cambridge.
A few more bullet points from the story:
- “Cover girls are celebrities. The Duchess of Cambridge should be something much more.”
- “She may kindly condescend to her photo appearing in a mag, “but she must never look like she’s in cahoots with that media lot.”
- “To date, the Duchess of Cambridge has played her role perfectly: charming, caring, glamorous and regal.”
- “Leave Pippa to deal with the glossies, Your Royal Highness,“ you’ve got history to make.”
We will be back soon, at the very latest on Thursday when Kate & William have a scheduled appearance, if not before.
