Kate Fashion Fans Pick Favorite Coat, Gown and Earrings

With apologies for the lengthy delay in posting these, we have results from several of our year-end polls.

We begin with the poll for your favorite coat; there were 8296 votes and your favorite coat is…. the Alexander McQueen worn for Trooping the Colour.

Ranking second, another McQueen piece: the navy coat dress with gold buttons and epaulets seen at the Irish Guard ceremony on Armed Forces Day.

Your third choice is the Burberry trench Kate chose for the couple’s trip to Belfast in March.

Here is a look at the top three vote-getters.

The coat receiving the fewest votes was one seen for Remembrance Sunday, the black Diane von Furstenburg.


Also today, results from the Favorite Evening Gown poll. With 8920 votes, your pick for favorite party frock was….

The Jenny Packham “pearlescent rose sequin gown with Swarovski crystal,” a dress from the designers 2011 spring/summer collection. Running a very close second, Kate’s black velvet custom Alexander McQueen seen at the Sun Military Awards.

Third on the list was Kate’s lavender Alexander McQueen worn to the BAFTA dinner in Los Angeles.

Here is how those numbers tallied up.

Kate’s red Beulah London ‘Sarai’ gown worn for the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala received the least number of votes.


Our final batch of results today, the earrings you liked best. This one was a little tougher because there were so many choices. With a mere 5043 votes cast, your favorite pair of earrings is….

Canadian Heritage

The sapphire and diamond pair we believe to have been reset from a pair of Princess Diana’s earrings, with 20.43% of the votes.

Running a *very* close second, the Kiki McDonough Grace studs, receiving 19.33 % of your votes.

Canadian Heritage/Kiki McDonough

Rounding out the top three, the Links of London Hope Egg earrings.

Canadian Heritage/Links of London

The votes for those top two places really were close.

Many thanks to everyone for voting, the way these have turned out thus far has been fascinating, especially the earrings.

Tomorrow we’ll share results on your Favorite Hat & Boots, as well as the top three from each of the two favorite dress polls, seen here and here. Those will be closed to voting tomorrow, so don’t wait too long if you haven’t already popped in to share your opinion on any of those topics.

Again, I apologize for the slow rollout of the results, as an online retailer we expected business to taper off after the holidays, but that hasn’t happened – a lovely phenomenon to be sure, but it has slowed things down here on WKW. Tomorrow we will also launch a new poll with the top three vote-getters in the favorite dress/suit/separates polls to try and arrive at your top choice.

I just love that Black Diane Von Fustenberg coat so classic

I love the white alexander mcqueen coat and skirt ensemble, it is the boldest style (for her) yet in my mind and my favorite. If I could buy any outfit she wore it would be the purple Issa dress and and this white trooper coat/skirt..looks great on her and could be worn by someone who is more curvy.

My favourite coat was the red Catherine Walker she wore when they left Canada and it wasn't even in the list... I think she was gorgeous in that :).

Loved all the choices, even if my favorites didn't win. I WAS surprised to see the least-ranking coat ... that was my choice for favorite, although if I owned that white McQueen I would wear it everywhere. ;)

I think the most surprising was the evening gown category. The white McQueen? Really? It was so pretty, but compared to some of the others ... and even though I loved the winner, i think it makes her look too emaciated.
