Black seems to give Her Serene Highness a radiance, a luminosity, that is not so apparent when she wears beige.

Do you EVER throw an outfit away, Anne? Her style's not to all tastes. But our thriftiest royal will even dust off a look she's not worn for 32 years

I love every look here except Mary's gown and the Sheikha Mozah's second gown.

Those are some very lovely red gowns. However, I'm not too keen on Sheikha Mozah's second gown, CP Mary's gown and Queen Mathilde's gown. I really like the other gowns, very pretty. My favourite is Princess Letizia's.

I always liked the one she wore in Brussels for the Dutch state visit (no. 59) and the one for Philippe's 50th birthday (no. 57). A pity that neither of them has been repeated.

I realise this refers to earlier this year during the Grand Prix, but I don't think the link has been posted before and it provides a detailed digest of what Charlene wore during that week.

This is probably a long shot, but does anyone know what years these gowns are from:

http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/v...pse93c216f.jpg

http://i694.photobucket.com/albums/v...ps16347df0.jpg

I am assuming the first one is from the 1999 New Years Banquet (she wore the dress again in March 1999 for a dinner for Nelson Mandela). I think the second one is from maybe the 2000 or 2001 New Years Banquet?

Any ideas?

edit: Well, I found out from the Countess Alexandra fansite that the purple dress in the 2nd photo is from the 1999 New Year's Court. So the first one is either from 1998 or 2001, I think.

Kate Middleton's High Street Style

I love Kate's sense of style and her fashion choices are always so beautiful. I know she has worn Reiss, TopShop, Hobbs and Zara. But what other affordable retailers has she worn? I found this story interesting for anybody else looking to get Kate's style: http://www.theloop.ca/style/fashion/get-the-look/photo-gallery/-/p/7154/Kate-Middletons-most-shoppable-looks

Issa London is my favourite online retailer at the moment! How about you?

Surprise ... do you remember the beige Reiss-dress the Duchess of Cambridge has worn during the Obama-visit? Found it today by accident on the German amazon-site. Well, not the official Reiss dress, but something extremly similar by a chinese supplier at an competitive price:

http://www.amazon.de/Hee-Grand-Damen...inesische+dame

or on the UK-site:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hee-Grand-Pr...ords=hee+grand

But please note that the chinese sizes are different from European sizes.

I guess this might be the right place: https://app.box.com/s/42c4fn4mw1pkcjt0tv81

This folder deals mainly with clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery and so on worn by Mary and our Marie, but other royals are also depicted.
It's very simple: User - Item - Designer, you'll find further details in the text, usually highlighted like this.

If this is considered inappropriate feel free to delete this post.
