Red Haute Kate in Alexander McQueen

So I come back from my Texas trip (don't worry I have plenty of pics to post for you later this week) to watch the pomp and circumstance of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Specifically, the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant that was held on the Thames River Sunday.

Did anybody else watch it? On tv? In person? I'm so jealous if you saw it in person (well maybe not, because it was pouring down raining and windy). HaHa They must only have 2 mos. of Summer I swear! Ok, I digress. Let me get to the point...

OMG'd!!! Did Kate Middleton steal the show or what in that haute super red Alexander McQueen dress, red clutch and Strathearn tartan scarf? I thought she looked gorgeous. Red is definitely her color. Do you think the Queen and Camilla were jealous? She showed up everybody!

What are your thoughts? I think Kate's fashion sense just gets better and better. What is UP with Camilla's hat? Let me STOP! I'm so bad. LOL



  1. i saw this in a news here.. she's so gorgeous with that red dress!!!

    hope you had great weekend!!

  2. Good God, what does Camilla have on her head? Love Kate though! She looks great as always.

  3. She is absolute perfection. Is the hat McQueen too? LOVE. IT.


  4. No, I haven't watch it, but man, Kate is just GORGEOUS! I love her fashion!

  5. I'm pretty sure I have an unhealthy obsession with Kate. She is just so LOVELY- that's the best way to describe her. I love that she's always smiling, she just seems so happy all the time. We could really use more of that in this world. Oh, and of course I love the way she dresses. She looks absolutely gorgeous here.

  6. nice outfit! i love the bold color

  7. She looked absolutely divine in that gorgeous red ensemble. I kind of like the hat. It's very quirky in a British posh sort of way. Hehe.

    I've found it interesting that Kate isn't getting the legendary celeb status that Diana did. Remember how back in the day Diana was such a huge figure? Perhaps because she was so into high fashion and did things out of the norm. But I feel like today we have SO MANY celebs (with reality tv stars and whatnot) that people aren't as interested in the royal family as they used to be. I find that very interesting...and sad. I'd rather people be obsessed with a princess like Kate rather than a nobody like Kim K.

  8. Welcome Back Kim!

    Can't wait to hear all about your Texan adventures. :)

    Kate did shine in that red ensemble. It really works for her well and she is bringing great style to the Royals. Love Love Love!

    Have a great week sweets!


  9. Pageant sounds like fun.

    Wow. The duchess looks gorgeous. She can do no wrong.

  10. She is one of my fashion idols (ok I'm slightly obsessed with her, let's be honest...haha...) I missed it on tv too, guh! I hope they'll be showing lots of footage from it.

    Oh Camilla, what the....?! Thank goodness for Kate, a breath of fresh air in that family!

  11. You know I was watching it here, haha!! Would have been fun to be there, but I've been down there around the time of another of these things and it's not always so pleasant, so many people and stuff. Watching on tv is more enjoyable!! We had no rain up here, haha. But, that's usually how it goes, one gets sun & the other gets a bit of rain. Her dress was amazing, loved it too!! And thanks for saying Tartan and not plaid, hahahaha!! Wouldn't mind that outfit myself ;) Hope you are doing fab doll, I look forward to the pictures!! xx

  12. I really like the tartan clutch with that dress :) She looks stunning :)

    Looking forward to seeing pics of your trip! :)

  13. Kate just always looks GORGEOUS and I love everything she wears! She's just stunning and a true princess :)

  14. Hahaha! Hi Kim! I love coming to you for a good laugh, you're so funny. You're right, that's an interesting bowl ... er, hat, I guess ... on C's head. Tee-hee. But Kate looks stunning, as USUAL! xoxo

  15. I missed the recap this morning, she really is rocking her looks this year. I simply adore her hat and the dropped waist of the dress.

    Can't wait to hear about Texas!

  16. Oooh know my love for the royals!! Kate was a knockout, AGAIN. What else is new? Although I didn't think she upstaged the Queen, who looked stunning in her white ensemble. Do you think she'll recycle this look??

    I just love them!

  17. She looks amazing! I love the last photo, she seems so humble and sweet.

  18. YAY hope you had fun in Texas!! Yes, Kate DID show everyone up! She looked amazing!!!!!!

    xo, sam

  19. Yeah, she's gorgeous! I love this dress on her (better than the other 2 who wore it before she did!!!) I had been a little disappointed with some of her choices lately, but baby is back!!

  20. Love that dress! So gorgeous!

    xo Mary Jo

  21. she looks beautiful in that all red outfit! The dress its her perfectly and the hat is gorgeous! Welcome back Kim!


  22. I saw your pics on Pinterest and LOVE her outfit! As much as I've not wanted to jump on the bandwagon, she always looks AMAZING! And yeah Camilla's hat is crazy!

  23. Welcome back from Texas Kim! Looking forward to seeing pics and hearing about your adventures. I was totally caught up on watching the Jubilee festivities on TV as well. Totally agree with you on Kate's style. She totally stole it with that amazing red ensemble. She always manages to look so ladylike and appropriate.

  26. I saw this on the news - twitter? I can't remember. But what I do remember is that when I saw her, I stopped what I was doing and watched. SHe looked amaizing!! Sara is going such a good job with McQueen.


  27. I love everything about this outfit and the colour is just perfect for her. I don't think I have ever seen a bad photo of Kate - so photogenic!

  31. I only watched the Jubilee on TV to see what she was wearing, and I can't say she disappointed. Love seeing Kate wearing such an iconic British brand like McQueen!

  32. I adore Kate Middleton. She is ao beautiful and elegant with such a pleasant personality. I like how she doesn't garner as much media attention as Princess Diana actually. It makes her all the more down to earth.

  33. The Duchess of Cambridge really has great style. She's so stunning.

  34. I LOVE this dress on her, do not like the shoes ... published a Fashion Police about it ;))

  37. Hey Kim - how are you doing gorgeous?? LOVE Kate she is so incredibly beautiful, and seems so down to earth - such a sweetie,
    Have a sunshiny day :)

  38. I didn't watch the Jubilee, Kim, so thanks for sharing these photos. I saw some other images of the dresses Kate wore and she was really working those hats! :)

  39. I wasn't there, but I did the see the photos of how amazing Kate looked - she's going up and down the country right now - still celebrating. What a party animal her royal highness is?!

    I also loved Kate's other hats at recent events too!

  40. Her dress sense is always demure, polished and elegant. Says a lot about the person. I bet she doesn't take all this fashion thing too seriously but it's part of her "job" now.

    Glad to see you back at blogging, Kim!
