We are back with a very brief post, primarily to share something fun:
That is a new picture of Prince George, one of three being released as his first birthday draws near. In this first of the three images, HRH not only appears to be walking on his own, he seems more-than-confident and happy as he does so. You can read all of the details on his sartorial selections at our sister site, What Prince George Wore. (A quick hint on those overalls: Petit Bateau.)
Many readers will recall our post earlier this month showing the Cambridges leaving a Natural History Museum exhibit, “Sensational Butterflies.” Comments suggesting official photos were being taken at the to coincide with George’s birthday were spot on. You can just make out photographer John Stillwell in this picture.
Does it seem like it’s been a year since we first met the young Prince?
For those interested in a little stroll down Memory Lane we also have a delightful collection of images showcased in that What Prince George Wore post.
The other two pictures to be released include Kate and William, they will be out on Monday. We will have a more comprehensive look at this past year in a Monday post that will include the newest family photos.
We originally said the Duchess was wearing separates, the brand’s Pique Knit Top and a pleated skirt.
But it turns out that isn’t the case. Behold, the Alexander McQueen ‘Wool Cashmere Peplum Dress,’ we show it at My Theresa ($3395) in ‘powder’.
A look comparing what Kate wore and the Peplum Dress.
Another group of comparison shots:
More about the frock:
- it is 90% wool, 10% cashmere blend
- this dress features a high/low draped hemline, longer in back than in the front
- the peplum is structured and reinforced with interfacing, as opposed to a soft, unstructured style
- in addition to a hidden zipper there are 3 interior hook/eye fastenings at the waist to help maintain a clean, uninterrupted line
It also comes in a second color, the poppy red version is available at Lane Crawford ($3235).
We send thanks to our pals at the HRH Duchess Kate blog for the tip on this!
Finally this evening, we now have an official release date for the Roland Mouret/Banana Republic capsule collection launching this fall: it will be available in-store and online beginning Thursday, August 7.
Those who sign up for BR’s email list (and presumably those already on the list) will be able to shop the much-anticipated collection a day earlier.
We’ll see you on Monday, until then we hope everyone enjoys a splendid rest-of-the-weekend!
