Conclusive proof that being a Princess is good for your appearance, courtesy of the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate Middleton impressed Grazia Daily (along with the rest of the planet) this weekend as she attended the Investec Derby at Epsom Downs racecourse, by sporting an immaculate off-white ensemble (No Pimms or red wine for Princess Catherine, we guess.)
For her day at the races, Kate sported a chiffon dress by Reiss (much like she did to meet Mobama). The dress features a terrrrrribly daring lace top, which Kate kept covered with a Chanel-esque waffle jacket by Joseph, nude patent LK Bennett pumps and a diamante encrusted clutch bag also by LK Bennett.
MOST excitingly for Grazia, however, is the revelation that Kate looks just as gorgeous with her hair up as she does with it down. Look! And there we were thinking she might have a peculiar piercing, or a hidden tattoo or something that she wanted to hide. But no. The famous Middleton tresses were styled into a super chic ‘40s style chignon for the weekend’s horsey fun, and the ensemble was completed with a nude hat, or hatlet, or fascinator, depending on which term you prefer (at Grazia Daily, if we can call it a hat, we will.) AND, might we add that Kate is wearing gold and citrine earrings by Kiki McDonough.
Hanging out with Kate is obviously good for the stylistic health of those around her, too, as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie turned up to the event looking actually rather lovely, and not inappropriate or bonkers at all, which is progress. Eugenie plumped for cream and navy polka dots and a wide brimmed hat, whilst Beatrice opted for a floral shift and oversized feather fascinator. And don’t they look great? All that remains is for some of that Middleton elegance to rub off on Chelsy...
