Kate Middleton needs no advice when it comes to fashion. Stepping out in a regal looking white dress and white cotton Issa trench coat for the Diana memorial concert in London on Sunday she showed off a royal sense of style. With rumors of a reconciliation in the air all eyes were on the beaming Middleton, who dressed down the outfit with her favorite black knee high boots and a perfect blow dry. We love that her outfit was stylish yet practical. As Issa designer Daniella Helayel tells PEOPLE “She looks very chic, demure and understated in the trench coat. It was the perfect outfit for the weather and the event!” We couldn’t agree more. If you can’t afford Kate’s $900 designer trench, try this casual white trench for a similar look, on sale $30 from $80, at Add these Isaac Mizrahi boots, $36 at, and this Ann Taylor sheath, $80 at — and you’ve got the look!

Guys, we are getting sooooo off-topic. It doesn’t matter what the temperature in London is or what someone else perceives to be hot or cold. Nor is it very fair to say that all Brits are snobby. There are some, just like there are snobby Americans, Germans, Russians, Koreans and South Africans. Yes, t is being slightly immature and rude. It’s best to ignore people like that, they just want attention.

Anway, back to this girl’s look.

Get the Look? How about get a Life! She has no real accomplishments to speak of. Her whole celebrity is based on being Prince William’s on again/off again girlfriend. Perhaps instead of focusing on her look she should focus on developing a work ethic, performing community service, and cultivating knowledge in world affairs. Is she really valuable as a future princess because people like the way she dresses? How pathetically shallow.


I like her. She seems sincere and besides we make her a celebrity, she certainly doesn’t make herself a celebrity. She is young and some people seem to expect a lot from her for no apparent reason. Best wishes to her and I hope her an William work out. They seem sweet together and his mother probably would have liked her.

I don’t understand the venom that’s being directed towards this girl. You say instead of focusing on her look she should focus on developing a work ethic, performing community service and cultivating knowledge in world affairs. Last I read, she does have a job and as far as her knowledge or lack-there-of, I don’t know her so I can’t judge her. But I see that’s not stopping you. I’m sure you do LOADS of community service, work hard and cultivate your knowledge but still find the time to get worked up over someone you’ve seen in a glossy. She hasn’t asked for any of this limelight, she’s just a girl who’s hounded by the press because of her choice of dates. If anything blame yourselves for devouring all the gossip rags.

I’m with B…if she has talents, I’ve yet to discover them.

Kiwi: Yes, she has a job-she buys accesories for a shop. Seeing as she works in the fashion industry, she should know that brown suede boots with a sleeveless white lace dress in the summer looks silly! And it doesn’t matter how much community service an average person like myself or B does, because we weren’t two inches away from becoming the future Queen of Britain. Someone in her position should have strong work ethic and work with charities. (And FYI, I volunteer at a food pantry/thrift store for the needy every week.)And yes, she could have prevented all this media attention-she chose to date him, didn’t she?

yes…it is absolutely summer in England. It’s called the Northern Hemisphere. It’s winter in Australia, part of the Southern Hemisphere. Geography lessons aside, the boots look silly with that dress. With a black dress, eh maybe it would be oK.

I’m not crazy over Kate’s dress, but I love her trench coat. The boots are okay, but I would have gone with a peep toe pump. If the weather is a factor, the boots are okay, I’m with “k8”, I think instead of black boots, brown boots would have looked nice, IMO. By the way, $900 is crazy for that trench coat!

Kiwi: I do have a job, do community service and have raised five kids too. But you miss the point of my post. This is not venomous-sorry if I offended you. If the only focus is on Kate’s look and it is the only thing she publicly cultivates then what is the monarchy’s future, what relevance will it have? Sure she dresses nicely–but in the 21st century shouldn’t we expect, and demand, something more substantial from women who have garnered the spotlight and have the opportunity to be a positive influence in our world?

To all the haters of suede boots in summer — it’s fun to put together unconventional outfits and mix and match! You don’t always have to conform and follow ‘the rules.’ I actually wore an almost identical outfit today — sleeveless white eyelet dress and embroiderd brown suede boots (a little more boho)–and was surprised to browse this section and see this very similar look. Remember “a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

Yes, it is summer in London. When I was there a few weeks ago, it was indeed hot–around 80 degrees. Maybe it was cool over the past weekend, but that doesn’t necessarily make boots appropriate for the summer. If she wore a different shoe, I would love the outfit.
