Africa Cats: Catherine Is The Peplum Princess

Catherine4 Africa Cats: Catherine Is The Peplum Princess %tag

Who: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Where: At the UK Royal Premiere of African Cats at the BFI Southbank in London, England

Wearing: A grey knee-length Matthew Williamson dress from the pre-fall 2012 collection with three-quarter sleeves, a peplum waist, and turquoise and gold embellishments to the cuffs and neckline. Completing her look, Catherine wore simple matching heels and a clutch.

Verdict: With the fact that it has been raining for what seems like weeks now in London I wasn’t expecting a floor-length gown from Catherine, which is a shame as I love to see her glammed up, but this is one gorgeous dress.

I love everything from the colour to the waist peplum, but what shines for me on this dress has to be the modified neckline to include matching embellishments to go with the cuffs, totally makes this dress Royal worthy. The turquoise jewels against the grey is just a great combination, make the pastel grey look fresh rather than dull, which can sometimes happen with grey on the red carpet.

This is a great look from Catherine for me, do you like it?

I do love wedding pictures, and these gorgeous snaps of the Royal Wedding taken by Hugo Burnand in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace are just so adorable.

My favourite snap has to be this one of the Bridge and Groom, TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the centre with their bridesmaids and page boys, (clockwise from bottom right: The Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, Miss Eliza Lopes, Miss Grace van Cutsem, Lady Louise Windsor, Master Tom Pettifer, Master William Lowther-Pinkerton).

I have to admit I was hoping for one of Catherine, William, Pippa and Harry, with all the flirting going on yesterday I bet that is one cheeky snap!!!

Royal Wedding: Catherine Middleton at the Evening Reception

Like every bride, Catherine Middleton choose to change into something else for the evening reception, and once again it was a stunning gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.

The white sweetheart neckline satin Alexander McQueen gown, has exquisite detailing with its diamanté waist band, simple-yet-elegant, and to finish the look was an adorable white mohair cropped cardigan.

The Duchess of Cambridge is glowing in this gorgeous and elegant gown, perfect for the evening reception, and it was nice to see the Duke of Cambridge in a tux, very James Bond!!
