Date or no date this Valentine’s Day, there’s no reason not to put on your flirtiest frock to paint the town red… or pink.  Nothing stops traffic quite like a little red dress, but if you’re not crazy about crimson, there are several shades of pink- pale to punchy- that will also do the trick turning heads.

Setting the Mood: Separate but Equal

Setting the Mood: The Daisies of Our Lives

Girl Crush: Kiss Me Kate!

By |April 28th, 2011|Celebrity Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

As we all wait with bated breath to see what the beautiful brunette Kate Middelton will wear when she walks down the aisle to wed William, let’s take a look back at a few of her fabulous outfits.

I mean, despite the obvious- she’s gorgeous- this princess in waiting has completely mastered polished and timeless attire.  Knee high boots, tights, fitted frocks, and of course, quirky headwear are just a few of her staples.

While the girl knows how to dress the part, what I’m really impressed with the way she played her cards. If you’re under the impression that Kate and Wills just locked across eyes across the university cafeteria and the rest was history, you’re mistaken.

There was Jecca and Anna and Arabella. Oh my.

What did Kate do?  Handled herself with class and dignity.  She let William sew his wild oats while keeping her composure and proving that looking good is definitely the best revenge.

1. French Connection City Crepe Dress, $178, 2. Miss Sixty Thurles Hat, $59, 3. Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti  Short Dress, $680, 4. Burberry Leather Detail Trench Coat, $1,195, 5. Conair  Big Curls Travel Setter, $17.99, 6. Moschino Cheap & Chic Tie Neck Felt Oversize Button Coat, $1,295, 7. Giuseppe Zanotti Black Suede Foldover Boots, $488, 8. Fred Flare Tango Feathered Headband, $10

She may technically be considered a “commoner” but she is truly and exquisite woman teeming with class, grace  – all the ingredients of a princess.
