Princess fashion at the diamond jubilee

Leave a comment

Throughout the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend all of the royal ladies certainly made an effort with their choice of celebratory outfits and I was very interested to see which designers they were wearing and the trends they had adopted for this important weekend.

I was impressed to see even the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie (who are often criticised for their kooky fashion sense) looking classy, fashionable and summery on the final day of the celebration. Beatrice chose a striped cornflower blue Kinder Aggugini coat-dress while her sister Princess Eugenie wore a shapely purple Susannah dress, and both sensibly chose Stephen Jones hats and subtle Gina shoes (did Beatrice actually coordinate her shoes with her hair?!).

Kate Middleton/Princess Catherine/Duchess of Cambridge (which IS it??) wore Alexander McQueen on no less than 3 occasions during the jubilee weekend and my favourite outfit was this patriotic red dress created by her wedding dress designer Sarah Burton. Tulisa and Kim Kardashian have been spotted in the sleeveless version of this pleated dress in recent weeks but Kate’s custom-made version was much more demure and glamourous, especially combined with her floral Philip Treacy hat. Now where can I get this look on a budget..?
