Bill and Cathy Cambridge Go to the Movies

Posted on January 09, 2012

The family can’t afford better umbrellas than this?

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attend the premiere of “War Horse” in London. Catherine wears a Temperley London gown.

Y’know, on a starlet, we probably would not have found this dress all that notable, since the black lace has been clogging up the world’s red carpets for several years now. But for the Duchess of Cambridge, this is downright scintillating. She doesn’t really take the opportunity to do dramatic things in the style arena, but this is bold and attention-seeking and it suits her to a T. We don’t love black lace dresses, but we can’t deny that Cathy looks amazing in this one.

Bill, stop wearing your father’s tuxes. We’re begging here.

      I’m on the fence about the dress. Sometimes it looks a little “saloon girl” to me. And I don’t know how true it is, but people say the royals use those clear umbrellas so that the public can still see their faces and vice versa.

            Who knew?!!  The slideshow is great, showing Betty’s color-coordinated clear umbrellas.   How utterly marvelous!  I know that in some ways QE2 is the very epitome of dowdiness, but I think the old broad has boatloads of style.   Love her.

            Kate looks marvelous, but then I’m a sucker for Temperley clothes.

              The Queen is the furthest thing from dowdy!  The woman is OLD — and has held a very public, very conservative position for decades.  She’s not dowdy, she’s appropriate.

              She’s always been my favorite royal.  And I have to agree with Shannon… she’s appropriate.  Always has been.

            The Queen looks adorable under those umbrellas! She should hold one whether it rains or not. It looks silly in Bill’s hand though. I guess  only an 80-something queen can rock those color matching umbrellas.

      • Anonymous

        The whole purpose of the clear umbrella so that it can pulled down lower and surround the holder. Here the prince is holding it as though it was a regular umbrella—therein defeating the purpose of it being clear plastic and practically defeating the purpose of it being an umbrella at all.

        I’m digging the retro clear dome umbrella. You don’t see them much in the US anymore. I’d love to see the coat closet at Buckingham Palace, probably filled with decades of old wellies, macs, and non-compact umbrellas.

      I find the crotch-framing seams a little distracting, but otherwise it’s amazing!

      • Alloy Jane

        They’re dissection lines and the ARE distracting.  But she looks wonderful.  Him?  I never notice him enough so I don’t care what he wears as long as he isn’t dressed like a slob.

      • marilyn

        I am on the fence asbout this dress. She is beautiful in anything she wears.   But that dress reminds me of her wedding dress, and I was not fond of that.  (It looked like a ripoff of Amy’s wedding dress on Everybody Loves Raymond).  She likes fine, flat lace over a very plain dress design.  I know that lace is extrememly expensive, but it looks like cheap machine made lace.  There I said it.  She likes severe, stark architecture, and covers it with what looks like very cheap lace.  I first thought this dress had an unforturnate seam ending on the crotch line.   This is designed so the seam appears to be the bottom edge of a trompe d’oile (sorry about the misspelling) jacket edge.  A clever way to hide the seam between the fitted top and the gathered skirt.  However, it is still that severe archittecture with the tacky looking lace.  I don’t like the lace at all, and don’t like the way those two things look together.   I hope she moves on to something else soon.  She is too good looking and has access to too much better looking stuff to keep going back to this look.

        • http://twitter.com/hmbscully Wendy

          Her hair is naturally straight and those type of locks don’t frizz. Her hair is the *only* thing I’ll ever have common with Kate!

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HREPOWNBVUBRIVPQCF3ST2IKDM Euphory

            As a girl with naturally straight hair, I definitely have frizz in humid weather (maybe my hair is not as straight as I think it is?).

            • Call me Bee

              I have naturally straight hair (didn’t even have to iron it in the late 60s…) and humidity just makes it straighter and lay flatter.  Mybe you do have a wave in your hair that you’ve not yet discovered…. :)

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              A lot of it is texture — people associate straight hair with fine hair, and they aren’t always the same.  If you have a coarser texture, that will frizz more.  Also, if your hair strands are thick, you may have some slight wave which is just pulled out by the weight of the hair — mine does that.

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HREPOWNBVUBRIVPQCF3ST2IKDM Euphory

              You are right.  I do have somewhat coarse and thick hair.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Basically, hair texture is determined by how smooth the cuticle lies — if it’s more open, then more humidity seeps in, causing it to open further and create a frizzy texture.

          • http://twitter.com/NC_Meg Megan

            In the photos of her walking on the beach with Pippa, her hair is not straight. It’s curly, wavy, and frizzy. She definitely has to work to get it as glossy and frizz-free as it is here!

          • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan

            My hair is like this too, I like to think of it as textureless. I don’t frizz ever for any reason. But it also means when I curl or style my hair it only lasts about 10 minutes before it’s straight again. 

        • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

          She gets Keratin smoothing treatments. Her hair isn’t naturally straight – it has a bit of a wave, but the smoothing treatments keep the flyaways at bay, particularly when it’s also professionally styled.

          • Anonymous

            I have commented on her amazing here before and maybe you or someone else mentioned the Keratin treatments, which I promptly googled.  In the 90’s I cut my hair to looks like Princess Di’s short hair (not because I have some sort of SWF thing for british royalty, but because I liked the cut), but my hair type is very similar Kate’s, except mine would never look that shiny or glossy.  It does the wavy thing like hers does very nicely without much coaxing.  I would pay good money to have it look that way.

            But when I discovered there is formaldehyde in the Keratin treatments, I crossed it right off my wish list!  I do not want embalming chemicals that close to my brain!!!

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              There are some that are starting to be made without formaldehyde, but all keratin treatments are VERY pricey.  My stylist charges over 300 for one and it only last for about 6 weeks.  And I found it only has an effect when blown dry — my hair looks exactly the same if it’s air-dried with or without a treatment. 

              Now, I had a Japanese straightening process done on it (though I can’t remember what it was called) that gave GREAT shine.

            • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

              Mine charges about $300, but I can get almost six months out of it. It’s formaldehyde free as well – I made sure to check on that.

      She does look stunning here, and very (not) pregnant. But what would she be, three or four months now, so maybe not enough time to show. Anyway back to the gown. It really shows how long and lean she is.  Yeah, the tux needs to go, but I’m thinking marriage really suits William…he looks better now than in the past four years.

        Super-skinny people like her tend to start showing WAY sooner than the rest of us, because she actually has to ADD some fat to protect a growing child :)

          I feel so sorry for royals who have people constantly staring at their midsections, wondering if there’s a bump yet.  I think I’ll just stick to admiring her clothes and let the Palace tell us when there’s an upcoming Happy Event; might as well let these two kids enjoy each other for at least a *little* while before adding ankle biters to the mix!

          And even though I have extra-thick hair like Cathy Cambridge’s, never in my entire life have I managed to get it looking even half as nice as hers.  Sigh.  Of course, I’m also not willing to spend four hours at the hairdressers a couple times a week, so I guess that might explain some of the difference?

          • Rachel Moss

            Seriously! I make sure never to speculate on things like this because I know how irritating *I* find it to get constantly asked when I’m going to get hitched – and I know that as soon as I do the baby question will be asked constantly too…

              What kills me is that these people are OUTSTANDING at managing their press — do you really think she’s going to go out in ANYTHING that betrays a bump until they’ve made the announcement?

            Althought it might not seem so from my original comment, I totally agree!  I think she’s gorgeous, and I love her simple/elegant style, so I’m enjoying looking at the pretty right now.   I also have crazy thick hair, and it NEVER looks REMOTELY this good. But maybe it could if I had a stylist ;)

      Yii, that brolly!  A refugee from the 1960s, shoved into the back of the closet and drug out in a frantic scramble when the weather went south.  And the UK a bastion of really well-made, expensive bumpershoots.  Inexplicable.

      I go to the flicks only rarely, but I can’t say that I’ve ever contemplated sitting in the cinema in a floor-length black lace overlay gown, even if the film in question was about solemn war themes, patriotism and matters equine.  The royals are different from you ‘n’ ‘me.

            I don’t know… I grew up with a great aunt who was quite fond of using her butter knife handle (one of the big old-fashioned ones) as a weapon against poor table manners.  A lot of it is simply formal manners, and a lot more is very common for state functions anyway.  Like the hoopla when Shelly O touched the Queen?  I guarantee you, she knew it was a no-no and did it anyway, because it would play well with the American people and since she wasn’t supposed to, it was sure to be mentioned.

      Day-um, that girl’s hair!

      I know it’s already been admired here but I had to.

      Prince William is clearly not going to listen to you about the tux issues (I suspect the only way he’d change is if his bride and whichever Highly Skilled Lackey With A Traditional Title that We Yanks Don’t Know who assembles his wardrobe collude and the next installment of beautifully custom made tuxes just show up in the wardrobe, improved per TLo.)

      I do think, however, that he should get some additional Order or Decoration or Honor for bringing that girl’s genes into the Windsor pool.

      Her hair is getting quite boring.

      But at least she seems to be having fun dressing herself.  In general, she seems to dressing herself just like any other stylish London girl if they can get their hands on some money.

      I wonder though, do they get clothes lent to them for free like entertainers do, or do they buy these clothes?

      William is still actually a quite good looking young man.  It’s a shame that he’s losing his hair (but I don’t recall Charles having so premature balding?).  If he gets hair nets or just shaves it all, he would be much more dashing. 

      • Anonymous

        My understanding is that they buy everything. They’re not permitted to take anything for free, and not even allowed a discount. Which I think is as it should be. However…per what I read on a trashy UK newspaper gossip website – the royal women do accept major jewelry as gifts from foreign heads of state. There’s some big kerfufulle right now about Edward’s wife, Sophie,and  jewels given by the King (Prince?) of Bahrain.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          They also have to be careful about HOW they spend money — the Queen is notoriously frugal and has no patience for flashing money around wastefully.  For instance, I know it has been remarked upon her that Kate has worn the same piece multiple times and that is highly encouraged in the royal family.  There are rumors that that was one of the things she didn’t like about Diana and Fergie.

        I thought the same thing!  There’s something very 1970’s retro about her when she is seen from the side, because if you look at the photos of ladies from that era, a lot of them had that long glossy hair, were quite thin and didn’t work out very much (at least not in the gym,) so they were relatively booty-less.

I wonder if she doesn’t do anything different with her hair (which is always gorgeous) to go along with their ” (relatively) less is more” lifestyle – in other words, maybe she feels it is too much of an extravagance to hire someone to do her hair when she can do it herself.

      Other than that weird line around her crotch, I think she looks fabulous. Will’s tuxedo seems to fit him better than some others he’s worn lately. He looks good.

        I agree on the seam across the crotch. It’s the only blotch on what is otherwise a lovely look for her.

      and find a bigger umbrella…it’s the land of rain, for goodness sake!

      I think she looks gorgeous and radiant. 

      And btw, I have the same umbrella. Got it from a street vendor on 5th Avenue for 12 bucks. I’ll have to do the Windsor wave (at passersby) next time I use it.

      She looks fabulous as always.   I love that she still manages to be stylish within the constraints of being the future queen of England

      This is how they dress to see a movie?

        It’s part of the family business.  They are attending the premiere of a fairly big film about a fairly big war.

      Striking.  Is it me, or is she morphing into a cross between Lynda Carter and Erin Grey?

      At least this tux seems better fitted. I wonder if the problem is that they have one “royals approved” suit guy, who learned his craft in the 1980’s, and simply doesn’t know how to make a jacket that isn’t double breasted.

      I don’t know about the dress.  Something about it just doesn’t seem all that flattering, but I can’t put my finger on it.  Still, I should probably refrain from commenting until I look that good going out…

      Will, you look like a waiter. Fire your tailor!

      I find myself wishing that the top part of the dress was in reality a jacket, and would look better paired with a solid black skirt.  Still, she looks lovely and the dress does fit like a glove.  William’s tux seems more tailored than in recent outings.  I really don’t mind the double-breasted tux; he looks great.  That umbrella looks like one somebody on the street just gave them as they were getting out of the limo.

      Love the dress, but I wish she’d do something interesting with her hair every once in a while. She’s gorgeous, the hair’s shiny and healthy, and she’d look SO fabulous in an updo, or a half-up half-down, or or even a sophisticated ponytail. It’s such a waste of good hair opportunities!

        I agree – a hair style – anything would be amazing. She’s got Kyle Richards syndrome. She thinks because she has pantene comercial hair it’s “done” just as it is. I guess she thinks it speaks for itself.

      I know I’m a bad person because when I see hair like this, all I want to do is chop it off.

      What on earth possesses him to wear double breasted tuxes ALL.THE.TIME.?  Not doing him any favors at all.  She looks gorgeous, as usual, and I want her hair, as usual.  :)

      I love Cathy’s dress, but the way the seam runs below the belt makes it look like there’s an ass on the front of the dress.

      • Mary McClelland

        agreed!

      She looks amazing.  And that’s saying something since I don’t even really like the dress on it’s own.

      Love the dress. I also disagree slightly on Bill’s suit choice. Yes, he defaults to the double-breast far too often, but I think this is the best iteration of it I’ve seen.

    • Pennymac

      She looks amazing. He still looks like Wills. How can she possibly have hair that perfect in the yucky English rain and with the crappy umbrella? Not fair!

      Totally agree. Love them!

      She has NO ASS.  The back of that dress looks like the curtains on some sad community theater version of Arsenic and Old Lace.  Just saying.  

    • elzatelzabelz

      She looks beautiful and classic here. Her style may not be terribly exciting (from a fashion standpoint), but she dresses beautifully and classic. Plus, she’s so darn pretty. I really hope those two crazy kids make it last!

      MAN she has a flat ass. I think they look terrific.

      Is it just me or is the prince becoming more dashing with each month of marriage.  I always thought he was the cutest of the two but recently he seems down right HOT.  Bad Tux or not the Prince has Come!

      Not sure why you hate his tuxes.? beautifully tailored, well fitted…a little bland? perhaps, but appropriate for who he is and the occasions…..and look!!! his shoes are POLISHED!!

      You can’t really judge his suits on fashion terms. Classic tailoring will always sit outside it, and the more traditional Row companies pour scorn on those who cross into more fashiony cuts, colours and fabrics and on fashion designers that make suits. They’ll advise on height and build, and for their interpretations that will swing towards double-breasted for him. 

      Yes, I’d also like to see him in a different style now and then. But it’s clearly not something he particularly cares about, as long as he looks smart and appropriate. He’ll be happier in his flying gear or his motorbike leathers. I think the fit issues we see sometimes come from his weight fluctuating depending on what job he’s doing at the time, RAF or Royal, and him not really caring enough for it to bother him.Prince Charles actually does seem to care more about clothes, he can be quite a dapper wee chap.She looks good in that.

      she really does look great – go princess!

      How, in the name of all that is holy, does she get her hair to be so damn smooth and gorgeous IN THE RAIN? I mean, I haven’t exactly gotten up close and personal with her head, but it appears that she has very similar hair to mine (thick, mostly straight, but can take a curl), but mine frizzes up like crazy in humid weather. WHAT SORCERY IS THIS, CATHY? Seriously. Let me know.

      She is just too thin. It makes her look “harder” and older.
