Steal Her Look For Less: Kate Middleton in Temperley London


Kate Middleton shined at the War Horse London Premiere

How does that saying go - "If it ain't broke don't fix it"? It sure seems like Kate Middleton is taking that phrase to heart. From her gorgeous colorful Issa dresses to her long sleeved wedding gown, she's really made quite the "lacey" fashion statement. Some might consider this fabric to be old fashioned and beyond it's time. Yet she's proven how extremely modern and somewhat sexy it can be. Perhaps it helps that she's got that mega-watt smile and the shiniest hair known to man. Either way, no one was surprised how gorgeously stunning she looked at the London War Horse premiere on Sunday night. Wearing a sweeping black lace gown from Temperley London, the Duchess showed why she's every bit a piece of regal royalty.


The nude underlay offers the look of a skin-bearing sheath keeping the look fresh, fun and current. And while her floor length dress is perfect for a red carpet appearance, I want to translate this elegant style for the everyday woman. And of course, stay on budget! After all, we might all think we're princesses (present company included) but not all of us actually are....
I think the key to wearing this ladylike design is to not over-do it. You want the lace to be the center of attention. Kate was smart by choosing a simple black velvet clutch, that beautiful engagement ring and a sparkling bracelet for a hint of glitz. (The girl can't go around wearing the crown jewels everywhere!) But if you like to keep things a little on the wild side, a peek-a-book cut-out adds a hint of edgy to this classic look. I hope these picks make you feel like the Queen-in-training you all are! xoxo
