Well Played: Kate, Wills, and George’s Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, Day Six


There was A LOT on the docket today: Kate visited a children’s hospice, William went to an aerospace something or other (technically, it was the aircraft manufacturer Pacific Aerospace), they both went to visit Cambridge (appropriate; and per Twitter, there are 18,000 residents of Cambridge, NZ and a crowd of 15,000. As Cambridge Watch put it on Twitter, “those other 3000 people are no fun”) where roses were laid at memorials, and then they went and hung out with some Olympians and opened the Avantidrome. I wonder if everyone reminisced about the London Olympics and how fun they were and how everyone at those Olympics had such amazing abs….

Where were we? Ah, yes! Big day for Wills and Kate but no wardrobe change — and no George, who I don’t think we’re going to see until they get to Australia, maybe, so at least a few more days…I think. (Tomorrow is even busier and involves a Maori welcome and wine-tasting and rugby and white-water rafting, which is actually also all of what I have on my sked tomorrow as well.) At any rate, let’s eyeball them. I hope it goes without saying that I like her green Erdem coat VERY MUCH. She told someone that William thought it was “a bit bright,” but I am pleased that she clearly was like, “yes,  and you own 45 identical blue suits,” and wore it anyway. (I can’t see what she’s got on underneath — there was serious discussion on Twitter, and we finally decided it was probably old tee shirts of W’s — but I guess we were wrong, as I read on Kate Middleton Style that it’s this fabulous dress by Susannah which now I also covet. So. Yeah. This tour is really, really bad for my budget.)

You should know that as always I picked the photos where (a) you can best see her outfit, and  (b) they’re cute with each other. Let’s not pretend we don’t care about that.

Royals Round-Up, April 11, 2014


Okay, so obviously, most of the Royals Shenanigans this week have been Wills, Kate, and George on their New Zealand/Australia Royal Tour. If you’ve missed any of those posts, here they are:

That being said, other stuff happened too, including a state dinner at Windsor Castle at which the Queen wore MAJOR JEWELS, Camilla held up books, people wore shoes, there’s an amazing table-setting, and all kinds of other stuff that you can ogle in the slideshow.

Other tidbits of interest:

  • People has the full menu for the New Zealand state dinner and it’s making me hungry. I am obsessed with menus for formal events. I really am. I will ALWAYS read them. Just the other day, I had to look something up for The Royal We and ended up spending like AN HOUR reading about what the Queen has served at various Important Dinners.
  • Charles and Camilla’s ninth anniversary was this week. Royal Central has archival news video from the wedding. And is it amazing. “Camilla. Looked. Terrified. All. Day,” the announcer intones (over footage of her looking totally normal). William looks REALLY REALLY handsome. Holy cow, you William lovers will die. Stephen Fry looks A DELIGHT. Harry looks like A CHILD. And Camilla is OF COURSE wearing some kind of wreath on her head. You need to watch this.

Fugs and Fabs: The Tiffany Blue Book Party


Some of these women look INSANE and other looks glorious and I hate to say it, but Jessica Biel is really working it. Maybe her surprisingly good Fug Madness run scared her straight.

High Fugshion: New York Bridal Week: Reem Acra


Things I Have Admitted Loving This Week include babies, Nat Faxon, Emma Stone/Andrew Garfield, and now, Bridal Week, because of how I love looking at wedding dresses. I know. Now you’ve seen my squishy insides and they are disgusting. Don’t even get me started on how I cry at holiday coffee commercials. Just sit back and enjoy this wave of (mostly) pretty on a Friday.

Fugs and Fabs: The F/X Upfronts


As usual, the dress code for this looks like, “none of these people are exactly sure what to wear to this party.”
