Thanks, centerstage01 !!!!
This thread should have been named after bonny Prince George. Sooooooo cute!
He really is a cute baby. We are not the only ones who think so, apparently: http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blog...e-george-151724150--abc-news-celebrities.html
And I think most of us will agree that Kate's white eyelet dress is very pretty: https://shine.yahoo.com/fashion/kat...elet-dress-might-favorite-look-183700406.html
The eyelet dress was great.
I like the royalty thread titles to be more inclusive (and happily, MILF-free this time). There's more than just the British royals!
I lurved the white dress with the blue flowers. Gorgeous...and would probably look good on a lot of body types.
Just a note to all those who are commenting on Kate's skirt flying up when she arrived in NZ, if you haven't exited a plane in NZ wind and made that long walk down those stairs, you should try it sometime. It would have taken dumb bells to keep that hem down! Furthermore, those cameras were significantly below her. I think her outfit was lovely, and George looked very happy for a baby who has just been on a long flight, what more can we ask for. I may not like every outfit Kate wears, but she is always appropriately dressed and seems genuinely happy - as does William.
That eyelet dress was gorgeous! And the espadrille wedges. Possibly my favorite outfit of hers ever.
I am not the one clutching her pearls over the skirts. I don't really mind and understand that wind happens. It seems the concern is emanating from the palace. What they need to understand is that it doesn't seem to hurt Kate's image one little bit.
I marvel that the Duchess is always so appropriately attired for all these events.
Even with help. it must be a challenge.
I love the blue and white ensemble she wore today.
If you google the following: "queen kate wardrobe", what you will find is that story #1 came from the Daily Mail. Every other story follows that one in chronology. And that makes the likelihood of there being any truth to it about zero.
The Queen has a very intense job herself. It does not leave time to be the wardrobe police for the rest of the family and the notion that she is issuing edicts about skirt length or shoes or personally picking out Kate's clothes is laughable.
I realize you are not one of the critics. I do find it an interesting study in human nature how so many feel the need to tear others down. I do get a little annoyed at the whole working full time thing, but that is the palace, not Kate, making those statements. As far as I can see, Kate's biggest crime is marrying the man she loves and working to have a happy stable home in which to raise her children. I love reading What Kate Wore because I find it a great site for fashion information. They provide lots of links and helpful information. I don't want to look like Kate, or wear the same clothes as Kate, but through her clothing I have discovered designer I had never heard of. In the slightly altered words of Patrick Chan, it is only fashion lol!
I really am amazed you still seem to be insisting that the Queen is worried or concerned regarding some wind and Kate's outfits - I really doubt HM QE2 or anyone at the palace is clutching anything in regards to Kate's clothes and is probably very happy with how this tour is going and the immense popularity of her grandson and his family!!
Well, if you are so sure, please say hello to HM next time you have tea together.
Love the eyelet dress. And is this the first time she's gone open-toed/tightless since she had George?
Here's a lovely video of George meeting a bilby, I love what happens to the toy bilby at the end of the video https://uk.news.yahoo.com/prince-george-goes-walkabout-bilbies-075230570.html#t08VPMl
Why should he have to put up with a toy when the real one was so close Just like any other kid Loved Kate's dress - as well as her earlier one at the church service - the Queen must be very proud how this young couple - and their son - are acquitting themselves on this tour
HM The Queen's 88th birthday portrait by David Bailey has been released. It's one of those angle ones where the head looks larger than it really is but I kind of like it. She looks genuinely happy.
Is that portrait a photograph? Because it doesn't look like a painting.
It's a photo.
Dumb question eh? But the word portrait isn't usually used for a photo.
Weird. When I think of a potrait, I think of a photo before a painting.
Portrait photography is many photographers specialty. And even places like Sears, Walmart, JC Penny advertise "Portrait Studios".
David Bailey is also famous for taking portrait photos of the rich and/or famous. The article linked does sTate in the second paragraph that this is a picture rather than a painting.
Personally I think it is nice to see the Queen smiling like that - must be the length of Kate's hemlines
Yeah, dumb bells....or an extra set of hands. Michelle Obama had a similar problem debarking in a skirt....POTUS to the rescue!
I agree HM does have a wonderful smile, but the use of a short lens distorts her face too much for my liking. This photo was always one of my favourites.
The Duchess and an actress wear the same dress: https://celebrity.yahoo.com/news/kate-middleton-mindy-kaling-wear-same-l-k-214500496-us-weekly.html
Who wore it best? I have an opinion--do you? Love the dress, btw, so good for spring.
Ah, I did wonder why the top half of the Queen's head looks smaller than the bottom half - why on earth did he do that? It's like a vague caricature and just odd. I don't like the photo for that reason.
And Kate wore the blue poppy dress best
I think Kate and Mindy both look very nice. Without seeing shoes, it is tough to say who is styled better.
The photo of him holding down the back of her skirt just makes it look like he's grabbing her butt. And a Kate Middleton moment? Has no other woman in history had a skirt fly up before?
ITA, no contest. But for some reason I don't love her second eyelet dress she wore to the Zoo: http://a.abcnews.com/images/Entertainment/GTY_kate_middleton_australia_zoo_jt_140420_11x16_1600.jpg
That is, I like everything about it but the sleeves. Perhaps if it were sleeveless or the sleeves were not so wide...
I think the dress looks good on Kate. But Mindy looks smashing in it. The picture is not great, but from what i can see the dress beautifully accentuates Mindy's curves and her curves beautifully accentuate the design of the dress. So for me, the dress looks better on Mindy.
The dress is fitted to/on the Duchess.
Mindy, unfortunately, looks as though she has been "stuffed" into it.
It doesn't flatter her at all, IMO.
^^^ Yes, that is what I think too. Mindy doesn't benefit from the horizontal design at the waist either, it draws the eye sideways and makes her look wider.
Update: the royals were at the Ayers Rock.
Looking awefully cute in Earth tones. This dress looks familiar or am I inventing things?
She wore the dress for a warm-weather event in 2012.

Ahh, thank you.
Just as there's no "the" in Ukraine, there's no "the" in Ayers Rock.
And it's more PC to use its original Aboriginal name, Uluru.
OK, they were at Ayers Rock. Thank you for the correction. These little things drive the native crazeee. Something small but nonetheless, important.
Yep. Kate crushes that "competition." The dress is completely wrong--I'm sure Mindy (whoever she is) is not a large woman but the dress makes her look huge.
Separate names with a comma.
