Kate Middleton Style: Epsom Derby
Allpix/Splash News Online

And she’s off! Just back from her honeymoon, the Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance as a newlywed Saturday, joining her husband and brother-in-law — plus other members of the royal family — at the Epsom Derby in Surrey, England. While the men wore traditional top hats and tails — and women impressed with another round of formal toppers — Kate stood out in her sleek white ensemble, reminiscent of a suit Princess Diana wore to the Royal Ascot race 25 years ago. For her day out, Kate chose a flowing white above-the-knee dress, topped with a white tweed “Nessie” jacket from Joseph. She accessorized with an L.K. Bennett “Natalie” clutch and taupe patent leather “Sledge” pumps by the brand, Kiki McDonough citrine drop earrings and topped her look with a Whiteley hat. While Kate’s look was winning, sadly, the horses she came to cheer for were not; the Queen of England’s horse placed third, while Kate’s mother’s horse came in fourth.

Lorraine – the Royal Family do things a certain way being “proper” as the right word. I don’t really consider it trained but just the way they do things. I think it makes her look elegant and distinguished.

Okay, that’s not William with her…ha. Pretty dress…

My goodness Lorraine, lighten up before you stroke out!I think Kate is stunning, and I love her sense of style–classic, elegant, and timeless.

Lorraine, why be a Debbie Downer? Wouldn’t you show off that ring too if you had just married one of the most eligible bachelors? Not to mention, THE son of Princess Diana? It sounds as if you’re jealous more than anything. Her outfit is beautiful and enhances her beauty. Gangly legs? Please. And yes, while some of her actions may be contrived, you need to understand there are ways that are proper and improper for her to hold herself as a member of a royal family. Get over it.

Congrats to Rapper, Ice-T, and his Wife, Coco, on Renewing Their Wedding Vows, and I am excited for Josh Duhamel to return to All My Children!

@Lorraine, perhaps she’s right handed and holds things in her right hand with her left overtop. Doesn’t seem so contrived to me. But I do wish she’d put on a little weight – she’s gotten way too thin.

This outfit is for wearing to church not a Horse race. I actually would have like to have seen her wear some colour. I thought the outfit was very bland. The jacket was too tight and was pulling on the buttons.

Love her outfit. She always look so beautiful. You should devote a whole Style Magazne to her.

Love the white suit. Love her hair up. The hat is unattractive…she could have chosen something so much prettier. Anyway, she looks good.
