Duchess Kate in a royal blue Rebecca Taylor suit: gorgeous or boring?

OMG, two public events within 24 hours?! There won’t be a vacation long enough for Duchess Kate and Prince William after this grueling week is over! As I covered earlier today, Kate and William were at a charitable screening for the film African Cats last night. I wasn’t crazy about Kate’s familiar-seeming Matthew Williamson dress. And she decided to go with another familiar-feeling look today. Her suit/dress is by Rebecca Taylor – the textured blue reminds me of the Missoni coat she wore for a photo-op with the Queen last month. It’s not a repeat, and it’s not the same look, but Kate does love her blues, and she loves some nubby, textured fabric. Look, she’s got matching blue pumps too! I don’t think she’s a shoe person – I’m not either, so I give her a pass.

I was looking around for a good shot of Kate’s “blinged out” poppy pin, but her hair was covering the poppy in most of the photos. When you see British people wearing any kind of lapel poppy, it’s in honor of the Royal British Legion, or veterans in general. You can read more about Kate’s sparkly poppy pin here. The London event today was for a group of servicemen who “recreated the Scott-Amundsen race to the South Pole.” Later today, Will and Kate will attend an event for the Imperial War Museum Foundation.

Will and Kate’s first wedding anniversary is Sunday. They don’t have any public appearances for the day, and UK gossip says that they’ll be spending some of their anniversary at a party with friends. My guess? They’ll totally manage to find the time to take an anniversary vacation.

    She is wearing an outfit that would look appropriate on a 90 yr old woman (Brooke Astor would never dress that matronly!)

  2. Lucy says:

    She’s put some much needed weight on. That’s all I have to say

  3. spinner says:

    Beautiful couple. I love how at ease they are together.

  4. Franny says:

    I think she’s very pretty. I like what she wears. She can’t win in many eyes – either she dresses too old for her age, or she’s too slutty. How do you win?

  5. francesca says:

    I love the suit. And it’s sweet that their anniversary is coming up. I hope they take a fabulous get-away.

  6. Jackson says:

    It’s a nice suit. Good color for her. But let’s face it, she will always dress a little on the ‘boring’ side because she has to. There are only so many ways you can wow-up the same classic silhouettes. I think within the fashion confines of being the future queen, she’s doing a good job. Except for that freaking eye liner. :)

  7. Dan says:

    Kate’s sparkly poppy was designed by Buckley Jewellery on behalf of the Royal British Legion and is available to purchase online direct from their poppy shop website.

  8. Gossip PHD says:

    Someone should hang a “FEED ME” sign behind her wherever she goes. She looks truly unhealthy!

  9. Nicole says:

    I’m loving the red tint in her hair. It’s nice.

  10. iseepinkelefants@hotmail.com says:

    By friends we’re talking about William’s friends right? Because we all know Waity doesn’t have those, unless you count her mum and sister.

      and once again the prince charming will take his princess with whom he is madly in love to another holiday,evening with friends . is he scared to be alone with her or something? for a couple in love how come they never go on a vacation alone, never saw them having a dinner date or anything that would be personnel, intimate and private .they are always with other people .

  11. blonde on the dock says:

    Fabulous legs!

  12. Reece says:

    –The unfinished/finished edge bugs me a little.
    –Pins are supposed to be seen!
    –Aren’t they matchy-matchy.
    –Do all of his pants fit like that?!? What happened to all those great British tailors?
    –1st & 2nd pics of Will’s face need to be a meme.
    –Even security & the car are in blue! LOL

  13. ANGELIC 20 says:

    clothes , eyeliner,shoes ,weight that’s all she is doing ,nothing about her work.wow what a great inspiration she is .

  14. lower-case deb says:

    they’re so coordinated that Kate’s dress brought out the blue in Will’s eyes.

    Them Royals. Us commoners are not worthy.

  15. Cathy says:

    I like the dress, it looks good on her. She still needs to gain a few pounds, but she looks a hell of alot better than she did when they went to Canada.

  16. Xantha says:

    Has anyone else noticed that she’s stopped recycling her outfits? I’m trying to remember the last time I saw her wear the same outfit twice and I can’t.

    Not to mention that Rebecca Taylor and Matthew Williamson aren’t exactly cheap.

  17. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    HAHA in the last post, everyone was like, ‘Yay for Wills, his hair is back.’ These pics: um no, it’s not. Oh well. Sad little Will is looking more like his father everyday and Harry will go on looking cute forever. Give us some Harry eye candy!

  18. Lila says:

    It looks too short. The skirt and the jacket both look too short. I have some sympathy with her being so tall but still, it doesn’t fit right.

  19. lisa says:

    I keep trying to get interested in them. I just can’t find them that interesting. I don’t hate on them, but I just don’t find either of them interesting.

    I just think the media is so desperate to recreate the Diana fascination that they keep trying to make them this HUGE thing

    Oh well…

  20. Lorrie says:

    That suit looks like its hanging off of her. She really needs to put on a feed bag and eat. I’m over them.

  21. molly says:

    You are right on Kaiser, they already have a vacation planned for this weekend (Scotland is what I hear). This will be Kates fourth vacation and Williams fifth of the year.(They both had their New Years vacation,Mustique, France, and William stayed an extra week in the Falklands onces he was done “working”) I cant even begin to explain how annoyed I am with these two. William is going to make a horrible king.

  22. mimi says:

    The color is gorgeous, but the fabric is too “old” for such a young woman.

  23. dahlia1947 says:

    Nah , I’m not crazy about it. The color is nice. I love her little mannerisms like when she smiles. She’s cute.

  24. staci says:

    I understand she has to dress a little “boring,” but the fact remains she’s a 30-year-old who consistently dresses 20 years older. It’s possible to be conservative yet age-appropriate (and in-fashion, come on) in dress. And her shoes are always awful.

  25. GoodCapon says:

    Back to boring, I see…!

    But good work on the make-up, Waity. Me likey.

  26. Jenna says:

    Her thinness is starting to show on her face. I’ve seen younger-looking 45-year-olds, and not of the Hollyweird variety.

  27. jes_sayin says:

    Ugh, why the constant boring clothes??

    She dresses like a 12 yr old in her Sunday best.

  28. aud says:

    jesus, i would love to have the time to dedicate to just helping various charities.

    she squanders it when it should be something she cherishes

  29. Mew says:

    It looks as if she had a brow lift or tapes, since her brows go up instead of being flat like they used to be. The dress looks pretty much the same she usually wears, so she could just as well wear always the same dress.

  30. Britt says:

    I really wish she would do something different with her hair, it’s terribly boring.
