We did this when they took their tour of Australia and New Zealand, and I thought it was entertaining. After all, who doesn’t love to vote? Let’s pass some judgement and decide which of Kate’s tour ensembles most tickled our collective fancy. Collectively speaking, I think this may be Kate’s most successful tour yet. So many patterns and colors! Here’s hoping she takes a bit of this feeling and brings it home. (If you feel you need to revisit each outfit in greater detail, the entire tour can be found here.)
There are a LOT of dudes wearing bandannas at Coachella this weekend. It’s like they all decided that looking as if they recently robbed a stagecoach is all the rage.
Hey, look, Nicole Kidman got fresh extensions for her press junket for The Family Fang:
She also might be wearing the inside lining of a REALLY beautiful Crane’s envelope married to a variety of fabric remnants. I know it sounds hard to believe, but I kind of mean it in a good way.
Good news! The paperback of The Royal We is out in the world a week from tomorrow, April 26th — and, in a lovely piece of synergy, Wills’ and Kate’s fifth anniversary is also next week, and we are currently in the UK enjoying all manner of wonderful British and royal goodness. We’ll definitely be writing about much of that here on GFY, but you can also follow along on our Twitter, and respective Instagrams (this is Heather’s, and this is mine), as well as on our nascent and perhaps totally cracked out Snapchat (we’re FugGirls), and basically everywhere on the internet where we can normally be found. (We’re going to take a copy of the book to visit a variety of vital locations in the book, obviously. It needs to visit Windsor. Windsor is very important.)
But while you’ll soon be able to buy the paperback basically everywhere you’d go to buy a paperback — Amazon; Barnes & Noble; your friendly local bookstore; and, conveniently for everyone, TARGET! – we wanted to do a giveaway here on GFY in advance of its release, to celebrate. We’re giving away five autographed copies and ONE OF YOU will get a special prize pack of goodies we’ll pick out for you while we’re here in the UK.
If you’re curious about the book, you can find out more about it here. We can’t wait for you to take the paperback to the pool and spill your margarita all over it. Seriously. Bex would want you to.
THE TASK: I will be choosing the winners at random, but to keep it fun, please give a thought on the following and share: You are REQUIRED to marry a king or queen — of any country of your choosing, alive or dead; our only requirement is that this person be real. NAME THAT RULER.
THE RULES: Enter as many times as you want. All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you — although it might take a little time, because we’re not at our desks much this week. (Prizing courtesy of the box of books in my living room; contest open to everyone.)
The pluses: Naomi’s lipstick is gorgeous, and she does not NAB.
The minuses: Everything else, potentially. The bodice is juggling her EXTREMELY strangely, and I don’t love the union of the neck and waist ties. It’s like a nightgown got too bored with itself even to bother finishing its identity crisis.
Bonus points for looking comfortable, I guess?
But then demerits for looking like she’s on QVC selling a line of Star Wars inspired glam nighties called Leia Down In Bed.
