Last time we saw Duchess Catherine in all-white Alexander McQueen was at her royal nuptials to Prince William. This time, it’s for another royal occasion — the christening of her 3-month-old son Prince George.

While George was dressed in an elaborate replica of the royal christening robe, Middleton took a slightly more modern approach, wearing a custom ivory Alexander McQueen coat dress featuring ruffles down the front. Simple drop earrings and coordinating L.K. Bennett cream pumps completed the look.

And of course, she topped her famously gorgeous hair with a coordinating bespoke Jane Taylor “sinamay beret” featuring netting and a flower appliqué. (See a similar style by the milliner — for more than $1,200! — here.)

First things first: We’re basically devastated that Prince Harry is off the market. So we did what any normal girl would do and ordered up a little style recon on his possible princess-to-be, Cressida Bonas, to compare ourselves to her. Our findings: She’s super pretty and seems nice and she’s totally the anti-Duchess Catherine (at least in the wardrobe department).

Prince Albert of Monaco has said he loves his wife, Princess Charlene, at her most basic. “To me, Charlene never looks more beautiful than when she is natural — without makeup and her hair pulled back,” he told Vogue last summer.

So we’re guessing her new haircut — which she debuted at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tennis tournament over the weekend — is a huge hit with her husband. The Princess stepped out at the event — where Rafael Nadal took the crown — showcasing a closely cropped new do. Though the Princess has never been one to wear her hair down, she’s often pulled her longer locks back into sleek ponytails and updos, as she did for her July wedding.

We didn’t have to wait long: Charlotte Casiraghi’s first “Forever Now” ad for Gucci debuted Tuesday, and as expected, it’s especially pretty. Casiraghi is from a long line of beauties, including her grandmother, Princess Grace of Monaco, and her mother Princess Caroline, who both modeled for magazines.

Appropriately, the competitive equestrian was photographed (by Peter Lindbergh) in front of a stable for her first campaign, a nod to her work and founder Guccio Gucci’s fascination with the art of riding, according to a release.

From European royalty to fashion princess: Charlotte Casiraghi, 25, has been named a new face of Gucci. Casiraghi is from a long line of beauties, including her grandmother, Princess Grace of Monaco, and her mother Princess Caroline, who both modeled for magazines.

The competitive esquestrian only recently made her own modelling debut, landing the cover of French Vogue in September, but she’s long been a fixture on the fashion scene, attending shows by Stella McCartney and Yves Saint Laurent.

Her model good looks and jetsetting style make her a perfect fit for the brand, but we want to know: What do you think of Gucci’s newest ambassador?

Lady Gaga's New Job: Philip Treacy's Hat-Making Intern?

Milliner Philip Treacy has received much buzz for his one-of-a-kind fascinators, especially those worn at the royal wedding. And now he’s reportedly sharing his sacred hat-making skills with one of his biggest clients: Lady Gaga! Treacy tells the U.K.’s Observer that Gaga, already a fan of his work, is ready to be his next apprentice. “She plans to,” Treacy reveals of her intent to intern with him. “She’s already visited me.” After requesting to work with the designer last spring, it appears that the collaboration is finally beginning. “This is what happened: one Monday morning, four burly bodyguards arrived — Lady Gaga’s security team — to check out the security of the building,” Treacy explains. “I looked at them as if to say, ‘What?! Who is going to take a pot shot at Lady Gaga?’ Anyway, she is young, talented and peculiar — which I like.” Given that Treacy’s hats are sometimes controversial — namely the love-it-or-hate-it headpiece worn by Princess Beatrice in April, which netted $130,000 for charity at auction — it seems only fitting that Gaga would be interested in his creation process. “A person carries off the hat,” Treacy says. “Hats are about emotion. It is all about how it makes you feel. I like hats that make the heart beat faster.” Tell us: What do you think of Lady Gaga interning for Treacy? –Kim Peiffer

She made quite the impression with her debut at the royal wedding in a stunning Alexander McQueen gown and now, Pippa Middleton is causing yet another frenzy with her fashion choices. The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge has been the center of attention recently for her girl-next-door style, and the buzz continued the day after the wedding when she was seen carrying a snazzy Modalu purse around town. According to Stylelist.com the bag — formerly called the Bristol — is made of gray leather and accented with gold-colored statement zippers and a classic structure. Since Middleton’s debut with the bag the day after the wedding, it sold out almost instantly online and has been now renamed the “Pippa” bag. But you still might be able to get your hands on one; Modalu is now taking a limited number of pre-orders online and ready to ship by June 22. Read all about Middleton in this week’s PEOPLE, on newsstands now! Tell us: What do you think of the “Pippa” bag? –Kim Peiffer
