The Simply Luxurious Life®: Rules of Style – Kate Middleton

Rules of Style – Kate Middleton

I will admit freely, I am very intrigued by Kate Middleton and her style. Standing at 5’10” and recently believed to have lost some weight to be either an American 2 or 4 (not that she needed to), Kate is looking fabulous for her special day that will be viewed by millions.  So with the royal wedding taking place tomorrow (11am London time), I’ve decided to gather up some images of Kate’s classic style that continues to improve and now regularly causes designs to be sold in a matter of hours (the navy blue Issa dress she wore in November for their engagement announcement sold out in 24 hours).  Oh, and in case you might be interested, the white Reiss dress worn in the photos taken by Mario Testino for the couple’s royal engagement images is now again available.

So in the mean time, with my alarm set to wake up at 3am Pacific Daylight Time bright and early tomorrow morning and with a few cups of tea to sip in order to keep me awake as I finally, along with the rest of the fashion world, get to see what the wedding dress looks (Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen is the designer – click here to view the gown, the details and more) like for the new princess, here’s a look at a few of Kate Middleton’s rules of style to tide us all over.

~And be sure to stop by tomorrow after all of the festivities as I will have a full rundown of images and details.~

She's awfully thin just now, I saw her on the KIng's Road last week, it has aged her but I don't think she's dieting, it must be an incredibly stressful time for her. I think her style has been pretty awful to date, it's getting better and she will have people to help her now but fingers crossed she ditches those awful black knee length boots with short skirts!

I am very unaware of the royal wedding - except that it falls on my parent's anniversary :)
I think she looks great in those classic clothes and simple draping dresses. And I agree with Tabitha above, she's too thin and its making her look a bit more aged....

I LOVEEEEEEE Issa! One of my favorite designers b/c the material is light weight silk jersey :)

She is very beautiful in an unaltered way. I like that she is now a princess.

Me again! I am becoming more and more in love with Kate, such a classic beauty. So happy for the new Duke and Duchess.
