5 Things You Can't Miss Today: A Must-See Photoshop Video, Matt Lauer Jiggles, Kids Dressed as Chanel Bags and More
What has us buzzing in the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices? We’re sharing five things that got us talking today — because if we’re loving them, we know you will too. Join our conversation and let us know what has you clicking, favoriting, pinning, and all that other good stuff.
We had our suspicions (see: uncharacteristically roomy dresses here, here and here) but we also knew that if Kerry Washington wanted to keep something to herself, she would (hello, secret wedding). Well, the cat’s out of the bag: the actress is indeed pregnant! We don’t know what that will mean for her Scandal plotline, but what we do know is that we’re in for some classy maternity style on the level of Duchess Catherine‘s.
So what will PEOPLE’s Best Dressed Woman of 2013 wear to accommodate her growing bump? She’ll have no shortage of designers clamoring to make her custom items, but we rounded up a few ready-to-wear pieces she can add to her closet ASAP.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bucked several longtime traditions for the first official portraits with Prince George. First, the photo was snapped by Kate’s father Michael in his backyard. And second, rather than consult a stylist with racks of designer outfits for the new mom to wear, the princess chose a maternity dress from her own closet — an item that she bought several months ago from the high-street brand (and one of her go-to labels during pregnancy) Séraphine.
She loves the floaty, empire-line “Jolene” dress so much, she bought it in three colors: Fuchsia, navy and blossom print (the latter of which she wore the day after she left the hospital headed for her parents’ home in Bucklebury).
The Duchess of Cambridge‘s famously classic style didn’t miss a beat during her pregnancy, and now that the heir is born, we can’t imagine that she’ll suddenly start wearing sweats and a topknot.
And U.K. fashion expert Hilary Alexander agrees that we’ll be seeing more of the same lovely dresses — like the one she wore to introduce Baby Cambridge — as the Duchess enters her first few months of motherhood.
“Coming out of the hospital, she wore a very simple, pretty dress from one of her favorite designers,” Alexander said of Kate’s Jenny Packham polka-dots, adding of the dress’s forgiving cut, “She’ll stick to an empire line for the first month. At the moment, in this heatwave in London, the looser, the lighter, the better.”
That means that the sweatpants aren’t an option — even if the Duchess wanted them to be. “It’s just too hot for tracksuits,” Alexander said. “Maybe sleeveless maxi dresses or caftans in pure cotton — anything that is cool. Something easy to wear, [perhaps from] her favorite high street stores: Reiss, Hobbs, Whistles.”
The day the Duchess steps out in a caftan, we’re going to need to be immediately alerted, but judging by her blissed-out expression holding the baby on the St. Mary’s steps, it may be a while before she leaves the nursery again!
