It’s probably not fair to make the Princess comparisons but since she ranks as one of the most privileged women in the world, we’re thinking she can bear the burden. Our point: This reminds us of early ’60s Princess Grace:
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attends an evening reception to celebrate the work of The Art Room charity at The National Portrait Gallery in London, England in an a Emilia Wickstead dress.
Serving up Serene Highness realness. “Lovely” is the word du jour, darlings. Simple, beautiful and somehow fairy-tale regal. It’s like a maternity dress for Cinderella.
But what’s this? Has the Duchess, in a burst of hormones, said “Fuck it all, I’ma keep it REAL?” Consider:
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrives to visit The Willows Primary School, Wythenshawe to launch a new school counseling program in Manchester, England in an Erdem dress.

Of course it’s a little harder to say she’s keepin’ it real in Erdem, but still. This has far more of a personal style statement feel to it than, say, that QEII coat she wore the other day. This just feels more like something she chose to wear because she loves it rather than because it checks off all the boxes on appropriate Royal Wear. She looks fantastic.
