Cathy and Megs hit the bricks (literally!) in some bold and bright looks for Commonwealth Day.
Cathy Cambridge in Catherine Walker
Mrs. Cathy is a vision in red – all red – as she pairs one of her fave Catherine Walker coats with a stunning and totally royal sort of chapeau. It takes a certain something to pull of a hat like that and she didn’t always have the skill, but she’s really figured out how to master them – and which type suit her best. It’s all in her preferred matchy tones, but we appreciate that the shoes and bag coordinate at a darker shade than the coat and hat.

Megs pulls a three-fer on her goodbye tour. It’s official with this third look, which follows a pattern of suddenly embracing the kinds of bold colors that always suited her best, but that she avoided like the plague after she got married, Mrs. Mountbatten-Windsor would like you all to stay mad as she happily esconces to another continent with her prince. That is the smile of a Duchess who’s feeling herself. We love the hat and the cape, but the shape of the dress leaves is a little underwhelmed. Love the un-royal bag but the beige shoes aren’t slaying us. Still, it’s boldly declarative and confident in a way her official Duchess-wear never was. She’s making a point.
