The Duchess never disappoints...


Last saturday,the iconic Epsom Derby( in Surrey, England) attracted the biggest gathering of royals since the William-Kate nuptials and the Duchess of Cambridge stole the show yet again...with her new look...distinctly different but not veering too far from her signature look of 'understated elegance' ...




The demure Chanel-esque jacket is offset by the the flirty frills of the short chiffon dress which keeps the look from getting too staid...and the 40's assymetrical chignon topped with a stylishly sculptural hat is the right 'classic' touch...a woven straw clutch and nude pumps complete the look...




Earlier in May..Catherine, seen here with the Obamas at the Buckimgham Palace, with her trademark hair-do...perfection personified...




Which look do you prefer..Kate with her 'tumbling tresses' or the 'chic chignon'?

I think she is absolutely lovely! Very elegant and understated -- and I cannot choose between the two looks -- both are quite fabulous and fitting. Not many can pull off such a look as the first as effortlessly as she...

Hope you are having a great week so far, xoxo

Well, Ladies... I like her white look, but to be honest the lady self does not look good any more. I am not envy at all, but if you look at her face, she looks +5-10 years to her current age.
May the weightloss or the recent stress have left visible effects, but for me she does not look good.
On the picture of below (in the beige dress) she is just disappearing. If you have a look how slim the arms are comepared to the head+hair combo.
I am worried of the very nice lady. She also deserves to be happy and healthy.
I wish her (and to ALL of you) all the best

Wow, she's been always beautiful but you can already see the beginning of her transformation. She is turning into a more, as you say, "discrete lady" I love it.

If I had that hair I'd never pull it back but if I had that face I'd never want anything to distract from it so I am torn - BOTH!!!
