Yes, Grazia Daily is super excited to see our very own Andy Murray play against Roger Federer in the Men's Wimbledon 2012 final this afternoon - and it looks like we're not the only ones. Today, the seats surrounding Centre Court are positively heaving with A-list supporters so let the battle of the blowdries commence!
Tennis fan and Wimbledon regular the Duchess of Cambridge is flying the royal flag in the Royal Box and has brought little sister Pippa along as her date. Apparently, William is otherwise engaged (boo!) but that does mean TWO Middletons for the price of one (yay!).
Kate Middleton in Canada in July 2011 and at the Epsom Derby in June 2011
Kate has taken a gamble with this wet weather with lashings of white-on-white as well as Joseph-on-Joseph. Yep, in true recycling stylee, the Duchess is re-wearing the very same tweed Nessie jacket by the London-based label that she sported at the Epsom Derby last year over a sleeveless cream dress, also by Joseph, that she wore during the North American tour. As we reported in March, the 'Kate Effect' has already provided a handy boost to the Brit brand and Joseph is due to show at London Fashion Week in September. Will Middy make a FROW appearance? We can but hope...
UPDATE: Grazia Daily has just spoken to Joseph’s Creative Director, Louise Trotter, who tells us: ‘Kate is the perfect ambassador for Joseph – she is a busy confident woman who needs clothes to suit her lifestyle. Joseph is the ultimate brand for the modern princess! We are so happy to see she is a fan!'
As for the DoC's accessories, she added a splash of fun courtesy of a Diane von Furstenberg leopard print clutch that we've also seen before and - quelle surprise - her beloved LK Bennett Sledge heels. Those Kiki McDonough citrine drop earrings also made a reappearance and (thanks to our pals at What Kate Wore), we know the gold plated acorn necklace she's wearing is by Kristin Magnusson. Kate also popped on a pair of sunnies, which are the Givenchy beauties Pippa was spotted wearing at Wimbledon last week. See, these two are still into their clothes-swapping.
Pippa in Project D
But for today, Pippa has a brand new frock and boy, is it cute! Middy Junior is working the peplum trend in the Phoebe Bluebird Peplum dress from Project D by Dannii Minogue and Tabitha Somerset Webb and it seems Pip has inherited her sister's thrifty ways - this number was recently on sale at www.my-wardrobe.com reduced from £350 to £175. She's accessorised the look with Tory Burch's Robinson satchel and a pair of Givenchy sunnies.
The Beckhams cheer on Murray
And the Royal Box is also hosting British fashion royalty in the fine form of Victoria Beckham who is joined by husband David (swoon). VB was seen arriving looking rather festive in Wimbledon colours thanks to a bottle green and black v-neck stripe fitted dress from her Autumn / Winter 2012 collection.
We knew the It-Brit girls wouldn't let us down on the fashion front but let's hope these lovely ladies don't prove to be TOO much of a distraction for Mr Murray, eh? On with the match!
