In February this year, Kate wore a white high neck shirt by Reiss for the Huffington Post Young Minds Matter event at Kensington Palace. As you may recall, Kate turned her hand to journalism for the day, guest editing the newspaper and penning a blog post on the topic of children’s mental health. The “office appropriate” shirt was the perfect choice for Kate’s temporary role. She wore it tucked into a grey skirt by Dolce and Gabbana. The lightweight chiffon shirt featured textured … [Read more...]

The Duchess of Cambridge often carries her Longchamp Le Pliage tote bag. You may recall she carried the bag throughout the 2012 Olympics in London, and then later, during shopping trips in London. Kate carries the large size bag, which is made from nylon and features leather trimmings. It is available from Neiman Marcus, Ideel, Selfridge and Harrods, where it retails for around £70 (give or take). However, while out shopping in my local Marks and Spencer this afternoon, I spotted … [Read more...]
In the winter, Kate often wears her Temperley London Odele coat for carrying out private errands, such as grabbing coffee or walking Lupo. You may recall this photo from 2012 snapped by Sandra, a fan of WhatKateWore.com who happened to be visiting Kensington Gardens and saw Kate with a friend. The Duchess is wearing the Temperley Odele coat. The coat is pretty edgy compared to the Duchess' usual style, it features an asymmetric zip front and leather detailing to the cuffs. It was an … [Read more...]

During the 2012 Diamond Jubilee tour, Duchess Kate attended a special tea party in Kuala Lumpur. She wore a stunning ice blue lace dress by Temperley London. The dress was a bespoke piece, adapted from Temperley London's “Aster Flower” dress from the brand's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. The Aster Flower dress was available in black and gold/metallic, which suited the season. However, it is quite the contrast to Kate’s beautiful "airy" white and blue summer dress. We believe Duchess … [Read more...]
Earlier this month, William, Kate, George and Charlotte left Kensington Palace to take residence at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, a ten-bedroom country house on the Queen's Sandringham Estate. It's unlikely we'll see much of the Cambridges over the next couple of months, as they settle into their new family life and enjoy spending time with their new arrival. In order to help ease the withdrawal pains as we wait for Princess Charlotte's christening, I thought I’d take this opportunity … [Read more...]
On May 2nd 2015, The Duchess of Cambridge left St. Mary's Hospital (Lindo Wing) with her new baby girl, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

Steal Kate's style: a great "Copy Kate" look: Today, Dillards sell this lovely lemon yellow dress, you have to agree it is the … [Read more...]
Duchess Kate's Zimmermann Roamer Day Dress was a firm favourite with fans. The Duchess wore the piece during a trip to Australia in April 2014 and then again to Wimbledon later in the year. The dress was expensive ($500+). Zimmermann is a BIG name in Australia and the dress was part of the designer's flagship collection. Despite the cost, the dress was still hugely popular and it sold out. The label isn't due to restock the piece, as it was part of their 2014 "Summer … [Read more...]
Last night, William and Kate attended the Royal Variety Performance at London's Palladium theatre. Kate looked stunning in a black lace dress by Diane Von Furstenberg. The dress, which retailed for $900, was highly popular and quickly sold out at Net-A-Porter.com and Farfetch.com. Today, a reader from Switzerland (who wishes to remain anonymous) emailed me with a fantastic "RepliKate." The dress is a long sleeve black lace gown by Adrianna Papell at 6pm.com. The dress also has over 50% … [Read more...]
Last night, The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Action on Addiction Autumn Evening Gala, wearing a beautiful black dress by Temperley London and her Jimmy Choo Cosmic heels.

It's the first time she has carried it to a public engagement (though we have reason to believe that the clutch might actually date back to … [Read more...]

Yesterday, Duchess Kate visited the National Maritime Museum to meet with Olympic sailer Ben Ainslie and learn more about the bid to enter a British team into the 35th annual America's Cup competition.

Here's a reminder of her outfit: White Crepe Dress with Navy Trim • Jaeger • $250 Blue Suede Pumps • Alexander McQueen • $660 Muse / Raz Clutch Bag • … [Read more...]
It's no secret that us royal fashion followers can't get enough of glittering jewels and beautiful bling! Seriously, it's like we're all magpies!

Luckily for you, I have a pretty cool repliKate for the Kiki McDonough Grace earrings: The Swarovski Angelic Pierced Earrings. The sparkling Swarovski earrings are rhodium-plated with a single clear charon in … [Read more...]

I was looking at the Daily Mail "sidebar of shame" this morning (I know, terrible habit) and noticed Claire Richards from the band Steps has released a 'plus size' collection with Fashion World. The dress she was wearing is a great repliKate for Kate's Erdem lace dress: Obviously it isn't the perfect style - the repliKate dress has a v-neckline. Of course, as this is a plus size range, women with a larger bust will perhaps appreciate the difference in cut. The similarity of the two … [Read more...]
Kate Middleton wore the Topshop Contrast Collar Dress back in March when visiting Child Bereavement UK, and then once again for her video marking Children's Hospices Week in April. The style was very popular with many Kate fans, though it quickly sold out online. Because it's such an easy to wear piece that is both elegant and classy, many Kate fans wish to 'repliKate' or 'replicate' the look still today, a year later. Here are some of my personal favourites from ASOS and … [Read more...]
