Cathy Cambridge in Alexander McQueen at Buckingham Palace Garden Party

Posted on May 26, 2016

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attends a garden party at Buckingham Palace in London, UK.

 

We’re not all that enamored of this look, which is unsurprising, since it’s exactly the kind of Cathy Cambridge look that tends to underwhelm us: safe and colorless.

And if it feels doubly familiar, it’s because she’s worn this before. Which is fine, of course. All of this is perfectly Cathy C. And really, we didn’t post these shots to criticize. She looks lovely and the look is fine, if safe and colorless (and sucked dry of anything that looks like McQueen to us, but that’s a rant for another day).

We posted these shots because we just wanted to spend a minute imagining we were at a garden party at Buckingham Palace. Is that so wrong?
