The Black Dress

One blog I love to look at every day is this one...

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor

Not surprised?
Didn't think you would be.
Look at 'What I'm reading now' on my sidebar...
When I saw this post I agreed completely.
Kate is definitely gold star material in this dress!

When I saw it, it instantly reminded me of the dress Diana wore on her first public engagement.

She didn't wear it as well as Kate wore hers.
It was off the rack and ill-fitting.
But Diana was so very young, only 19, and hadn't yet found her style.
She sure did find it in the end, though.

Diana will always be my number one fashion icon.

Although, I'm thinking Kate might join her as an equal in first place.



  1. My mum was and is THE biggest Diana fan, but she loves Kate too. Thanks for sharing - lve looking at all the photos. The comparisons are inevitable. Let's hope Kate has the fortitude to survive them.

  2. That is a stunning dress.
    I feel that she oozes class and rarely (if ever) looks less than gorgeous.

  3. I love Diana, Fergie (when she was married to Andrew & mucked around with Diana, not so much now) and Catherine (as William loves calling her, it seems its really only the press that call her Kate) Thanks for the post & pics

    (((( Hugs )))) XXXX Kisses XXXX

  4. I love her! And Princess Mary. Such elegant, graceful, stylish women!

  5. I love Kate! She is just gorgeous and natural and SUCH a good clothes model! :o) xo


Just one little comment will make my day.
