Styling Kate: Submit Your Choices for Royal Ascot & a Royal Premiere!

For the third consecutive year we're asking you to indulge your inner stylist and share your dream looks for the Duchess. In yesterday's poll, we asked you which event you would like to 'Style Kate' for. The 'Evening Gala' option was an instant winner with 'Royal Ascot' taking second. As we've done evening looks each time previously, I thought it might be fun to have both options available with a specific event in mind for the gala - a movie premiere.


Look One:



The Duchess made her debut at Royal Ascot in 2016 and has decidedly favoured white for the event. For her first appearance, the Duchess drew comparison to Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady in a white Dolce & Gabbana cotton-blend midi dress with a nipped waist and tiered swishy skirt. Kate styled the dress with a matching Jane Taylor hat, her Gianvito Rossi Praline pumps and L.K. Bennett Natalie clutch.


This year, Kate opted for white lace again, this time an Alexander McQueen design featuring delicate pleats, a high neck, three-quarter sleeves and a flared skirt. I loved this dress, and thought it a far superior piece to the Dolce & Gabbana. Kate wore a white bespoke hat, the Queen's Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings, carried a Loeffler Randall clutch, and completed the ensemble with her trusty Gianvito Rossi Praline pumps.


Royal Ascot is synonymous with sartorial elegance. The event is considered a spectacle of fashion, with ladies decked out in their finery. There is a strict dress code for the Royal Enclosure with the following requirements:


Two fabulous sample looks suggested in the Royal Ascot style guide.


Look Two:


When considering which event to feature for the 'Evening Gala' look, I thought it interesting to select something different from the white-tie/tiara category we've favoured over the past two years. The Duchess attended the premiere of Spectre in a bespoke Jenny Packham gown with sheer overlay and sleeves. Ms Packham is the Queen of evening wear in my opinion, however, the drape and fit of this particular gown swamped Kate and didn't quite fit the bill for such a glamorous evening. The most interesting aspect of the look was the gorgeous Robinson Pelham blue topaz earrings Kate borrowed from her mother Carole. The look was completed with Kate's Jimmy Choo Vamp sandals and Casa clutch.


Perhaps you will choose a new gown for the Duchess or select one already in her closet which you would like to see again and style differently. There's an array of dazzling pieces only worn once which would be perfect for a premiere. Speaking of Jenny Packham, this teal number deserves another outing. The detail on the back is beautifully done.


Designers and Retailers:

Your look can consist of couture, high street choices, favoured designers of the Duchess, completely new ones or pieces already in Kate's wardrobe. To help you get started we've compiled a list of retailers with clothing, shoes and accessories suitable for the events:


If planning to add jewellery from Her Majesty, the best resource is Her Majesty's Jewel Vault. If planning to add a piece worn by the late Diana, Princess of Wales, visit Diana's Jewels.

Before You Get Started:

  • Leave a comment with your suggestions. Please include links to the designer/retailer in order for me to obtain images and to share your selection.
  • Don't forget to leave a name or a moniker of some sort to ensure I can appropriately credit your look.
  • The look can simply consist of one item, for example, a dress. If you wish, however, you can include footwear, jewellery, a clutch, bag, etc. It can be as simple or as detailed as you want. Remember you're the stylist!
  • Please only submit one look for Royal Ascot and one for the premiere.
  • Submissions for the post showcasing all looks will be accepted until midnight on Monday.

Most importantly, this is a fun exercise which I hope will encourage lurkers to participate and lend itself to an even greater sense of community on the blog. It isn't a competition, but merely an opportunity to indulge our love for fashion and get to know one another a little better. I'm very excited to see what you all come with. Judging by previous years, I have no doubt we're in for many a visual treat! :)

    1. Sorry PC auto at https, and then copy a www address. The dress is the purple one. Violet can be declared as color of 2017 for HRHD site. So many people were taken by it along with the amethyst. So I went searching for a violet/ purple. If I have time before Monday, I will search for amethyst earrings and bracelet sets. This dress may not need a necklace. Accessories could have been deeper metallic w/o looking greyish. It is for the Bond night.
      Charlotte,
      It was very nice you posted the invitation and rules for Ascot. In US people who live in Kentucky or attend Kentucky derby or visit the annual horse races, dress up for it, will participate too for the Ascot selection.
      Wishing you all, a fun and creative week end.

    4. Please include the ruby ring too. I hope Kate will continue to have her own kind of ring (this time birth stone) she will continue to be identified with. She had done enough saffaire in all due dedication to her "inherited" engagement ring ( well that is to saty there any way). If William said, " It is about curving our own destiny. No one is trying to fill my mother's shoes"., it is also about time Kate has her own kind of stone on the other hand of her. It was a pleasant surprise to see her wear a ring with a different stone color.

    I discovered this gorgeous brand called talbot runhof and they had this gown which was just... perfection! The pleats, tge beading, everything is so 'Kate' yet a little departure from her usual style which I really like. The combination of these champagne/rosy hues with a bold autumnal bordeaux would just look so sophisticated and elegant - perfect for Kate!

    Kate never wore 'real big hats' to Ascot, only fascinators/headpieces that were bigger, so I followed this tradition here.
    I tried to create a very summer-y look, the light floral dress that still followed the dress code seemed perfect (Kate must have been so hot when she wore the dresses with long sleeves, so I decided to go against something seemingly too warm for summer and sunshine).

    Travelling right now with wonky WiFi and a laptop that thinks it's on holiday too, so I hope this is going to work. As a vintage poster, I'm going to crave Charlotte's indulgence and submit two Ascot looks because I couldn't decide. All links are tested.

    My first brief to myself was to keep to Kate's love of white lace and beige accessories but to find a smart little dress so she didn't look like she was on her way to the registry office, then to get rid of the fussy little hats and courts and those overpriced Kiki earrings, and to find a dress that showed off Kate's fabulous figure without bed valences (well a tiny one.)

    But I fell in love with a pair of courts for Kate and they didn't work with the above dress so I found myself looking for a dress that did suit them. I've added some pieces from jewellers I admire picking up the leaf design. A very sophisticated look for Kate.

    For a gala look, I envisioned a state dinner this autumn for the Belgium or Dutch king and queen (one can dream) or the diplomatic reception with a more substantial look for Kate - picking up the fact she read art history with a tribute dress for the guests. I would have loved to think Wartski would give back Victoria's sapphire tiara to the royal family or some billionaire would buy it for them but in the absence of that I chose a remade Strathmore.

    Add if possible Diana's sapphire bracelets in the sixth photo down of her in a white lace dress (my favourite ever) and Diana's sapphire earrings in the photo (duckbill do) above it - the DM seems to have stolen this link for their recent article.

    Lord, I am out of it - I forgot to say that I chose a look for a state banquet rather than the Bond premiere because I fell for a gown that wouldn't work for Bond and wanted a tiara. Then I put the comment in the wrong post! Clueless!!

    Charlotte, I'm afraid I'm going to drive you mad - I found a hat I like better for my second (Mouret) Ascot Choice.

    https://www.1stdibs.com/fashion/accessories/hats/keneth-hopkins-wide-brim-straw-sunhat-circa-1940s/id-v_1887383/

    It's such a simple but brilliant hat!

    And Leo thought I should do the Bond premiere - and this is his choice - you can style it Leo from Leominster if you like - and I have to say, his choice surprised me - thought he would pick a sexier selection but he thinks this would suit Kate.

    I chose the shoes and bag. No interest from him there.

I know several high profile woman wore the Margot dress but I was dying for Kate to show up somewhere wearing it because it would be incredibly fabulous on her. Back to the drawing board for me but nice to see that someone has the same vision.

      And the "Wild Horse Long Dress" - perfect for a "Bond" premiere!

      Ladies, you have to stop - you´re doing my head in with all your great choices!!! You make me want to rob a bank so that I can afford ALL of it!! ;-))))

  29. Here are my choices. Such fun to do this.

    Royal Ascot
    Dress: Jenny Packham’s Beaded Lace Half-Sleeve Cocktail Dress
    http://www.neimanmarcus.com/Jenny-Packham-Beaded-Lace-Half-Sleeve-Cocktail-Dress-Ivory/prod193570108_cat49670739__/p.prod?icid=&searchType=EndecaDrivenCat&rte=%252Fcategory.service%253FitemId%253Dcat49670739%2526pageSize%253D30%2526Nao%253D30%2526refinements%253D&eItemId=prod193570108&cmCat=product&navid=QuickToProduct
    This continues the Duchess’ penchant for channeling the white lace of Eliza Doolittle but glams it up several notches. To continue the Eliza Doolittle channeling, I would go for black or black-and-white accessories.
    Hat: see the black mesh saucer with the white feathers she wore in 2008—a new bespoke hat with a wide brim in a black and white theme. It could be white lace with beading or black-and-white silk flowers.
    http://www.eonline.com/photos/14273/kate-middleton-s-hats-fascinators/435368
    Hair: down or half up.
    Jewelry: Annoushka pearl earrings.
    http://katemiddletonstyle.org/item/annoushka-baroque-pearl-drops/
    Shoes: continue the black and white theme wearing her own Office “Nina” block heel sandals in black nubeck—not to mention these are very friendly shoes for walking on turf.
    http://www.katescloset.com.au/office-nina-block-heel-sandals-in-black-nubuck.html

    Royal Flush Movie Premiere
    Dress: I’m going to copy you, Charlotte on this one. I really want to see that teal Jenny Packham gown again too. It was far too pretty to be retired permanently, and its style needs another outing soon.
    Hair: elegant updo. The back of the dress has to be seen. Besides, with hair down, it will tangle on those buttons.
    Shoes: the Prada scalloped suede sandals that she wore to the Clärchens Ballhaus in Berlin.

    Jewels: the Queen’s Brazilian Aquamarine Parure earrings and bracelet would be beautiful with this dress—each would complement the other I think.

  36. Ascot ~ hmmm ~ now there’s a challenge I’m probably not up to. Alas, I can’t help myself, I just have to accept ~ :P
    The outfit proposal leans on the Duchess’ penchant for wearing white on the occasion, but with a little twist, stile-wise. Aaaand … here we go:

    The dress (Ralph and Russo):

    with some tiny alterations: The white ribbon that twirls around the feather and the center needs to be either have a burgundy center line or burgundy borders (just a dash …) because …
    … for jewelry the outfit is paired with Victorian (inspired) garnets in form of:

      Now THAT is some serious bling! I don't think I have ever seen this necklace on the Queen (not that I can remember), probably because it would be so hard to style, but it works nicely with the dress you chose

      Delete
    3. It would look very beautiful if styled properly. It is 203 carats. Apparently the Queen has only worn it once years and years ago. It looked really pretty on the Queen.

      Valentino is just a classic for evening gowns! How about these diamond earrings Kate has had on loan from the queen several times (for the Diplomatic Reception, State Banquet, when she wore the shimmering pink Jenny Packham gown,...)?

      Delete
    2. Sonja, grazie, just googled the earrings...and they would go beautifully with the style of the Valentino dress...a terribly expensive dress, but shopping "virtually" is quite fun, and the dress would not be over the top for a film premier. Ciao from Tuscany!

    For the hat and earrings, I picked the Christmas 2015 accessories

    For the shoes, I would choose the green heel shoes she wore this year for St Patrick's day( sorry I don't have a picture for that)

    For the James Bond Movie premiere I have picked

    http://www.matchesfashion.com/us/products/Roland-Mouret-Hampstead-Bloom-one-shoulder-fil-coup%C3%A9-gown--1159667

    And I would accessorize this dress with black heels and Diana's bracelet and necklace she wore for the London premiere of 'Gandhi' in December 1982.

The jewels are wonderful, but I just can not bring myself to say buy more jewels:):) Re fashion what they have or just use what is available and realize it may not be perfect but the quality is probably not available in todays world for the most part:)

      Alaina! I LOVE your style! You picked so many things I would love to wear! That ascot dress is perfect. She would look great in that dress on a charity work day too.

      You can style me anytime honey!

  46. My pick for a Premiere: http://www.carolinaherrera.com/bridal/spring-2018/21484/. I would like this in sapphire blue and paired with Diana's 7 strand pearl and sapphire choker. I am still working on Ascot.

    2. That is a gorgeous dress but maybe too much for movie premiere. I would love to see her wear it but maybe to something a bit more formal than a movie premiere.

    3. For sure, Sonja. That is such a beautiful necklace.

  47. My choice for the movie premiere:

    Gown: https://www.rolandmouret.com/product/pre-fall-2017/cheveley-gown/white-viscose

    The white version of Roland Mouret's Cheveley gown would look simply stunning on Kate

    Jewelry: https://www.pinterest.at/pin/31173422396787572/

    I would use the earrings and bracelet of Princess Dianas' Oman sapphire and diamond suite.

    Bag: https://www.pinterest.at/pin/324611085630245107/

    Shoes: https://www.pinterest.at/pin/27936460165565748/

    These Jimmy Choos are simply gorgeous!

    Hair: With this look, I would style Kate's Hair as an updo with braided parts.


    Stay tuned, Ascot is coming up in a second post!

      I would love to see Kate in an updo with braided parts! Her usual updo's with the hairnets are pretty but nothing special...

      Delete
    2. Again, I totally agree. The hairnets are practical, I get that. It would be so nice though, if she would get a more interesting updo for movie premieres or evening events in general. She could learn a thing or two from Queen Letitia, who favours braided hairstyles.

      I'm in love with the green asos dress you picked for Ascot!

      Delete
  49. Ok, second round. Let's go. My Ascot outfit for Kate:

    Note: For this outfit i am "borrowing" this and that from other royals

    Dress: This dress was already worn to Ascot by another Royal: Princess Beatrice. I would continue Kate's white dress trend - minus the lace - and this little number is just the perfekt white, summer-y dress i would love to see on her: https://www.pinterest.at/pin/242983342374716429/

    Jewelry: I would go with these awesome earing https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/d0/a8/b3/d0a8b33b8734cfe14b35ba41879f0ab5--art-deco-earrings-pendant-earrings.jpg and Kate's delicate tiffany bracelet she debuted on her first ever tour as a royal https://www.pinterest.at/pin/434667801505547307/

    Hat (or rather fascinator): Yet another borrowed item, i would style the crisp white dress with the fascinator Princess Madeleine wore for Prince Nicolas' christening: https://royalhats.wordpress.com/2015/10/11/christening-of-prince-nicolas/

    This probably won't go together with Ascot's guidelines on hats, but since Kate is part of the Royal family, I hope they look the other way.

    Shoes: Jimmy Choos again, I know they aren't exactly the same colour as the headpiece, but let's pretend, ok? https://www.pinterest.at/pin/509188301611750843/

    For the evening event, because it is a film premiere rather than a state event, I'd like to see Kate wear something more like her pre-engagement style. I love this Matthew Williamson https://www.theoutnet.com/en-GB/Shop/Product/Matthew-Williamson/One-shoulder-pleated-silk-chiffon-gown/927446 with her cream Prada sandals, a new pair of Kiki's https://kiki.co.uk/product/green-tourmaline-and-kunzite-earrings/ and this painted clutch from Dolce & Gabbana https://www.net-a-porter.com/gb/en/product/889650/dolce___gabbana/dolce-box-painted-wood-clutch. Last but not least, Queen Mary's diamond bangles http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/queen-marys-diamond-indian-bangle.html?m=1 on her left wrist.

  53. This is my suggestion for Royal Ascot:

    This light blue dress with lace flowers and ruffled neckline from the Erdem pre-spring 2018 suits Kate's style perfectly: http://www.fashionisers.com/fashion-news/erdem-resort-2018-collection/
    The dress is floor length in the picture, but I would suggest shortening it.

    The dress works great with the 'Volute' headpiece from Camilla Rose: http://www.camillarose.co.uk/occasion-wear/copy-of-volute I would suggest a bespoke piece in the same blue colour as the Erdem dress. The monochrome colour palette would bring out the white lace on the dress even better.

    Lastly, The Gianvito Rossi Praline Pumps are a personal favorite of mine and I would include them in this look.

    And the Annoushka pearl earrings enhance any outfit without competing for attention: https://www.annoushka.com/en/annoushka-favourites-pearl-earrings-1.html

    The sleeves are also similar to those on Kate's gown at the State banquet. It is a beautiful color.

  56. So here's part 2 of my looks for the James Bond premiere:

    I decided to go for a different colour palette than Kate's usual evening looks, and combine it with the Temple of Heaven earrings she already owns.

    I struggled to choose an outfit for Ascot. As far as I know, Kate has been to the races 4 times since her wedding. On 3 occasions she has worn white/cream. The 4th, which was more of a private visit, was while she was pregnant with George and was a hit and miss re-working of an old coat. Pre-wedding her visits to the races were characterised by tweeds and trilbies. The royal enclosure calls for a formal outfit but not too formal. I wanted something not just not white but not in the dreamy/romantic style Kate has favoured since her wedding. But, go too formal and the outfit looks like something she would wear for a visit to a patronage or formal royal duty. In the end I plumped for this Roland Mouret https://www.net-a-porter.com/gb/en/product/912756 and to accessorise, this Lock & Co hat (trimmed with a black rather than blue rose) http://www.lockhatters.co.uk/women/lock-couture/precious-hour.html, Marc Jacobs' black block-heeled sandals https://www.net-a-porter.com/gb/en/product/888826 and this Kayu clutch http://www.revolve.com/mobile/kayu-charlotte-clutch/dp/KAYR-WY31/?d=Womens&itrownum=5&itcurrpage=1&itview=01. I'd style Kate's hair up and finish with a pair of Links of London black diamond drop earrings http://www.linksoflondon.com/gb-en/hope-18kt-rose-gold-and-black-diamond-drop-earrings/5040-2349.html?cgid=women-earrings#sz=12&start=59.

  58. I wanted to give the outfit for a James Bond premiere a patriotic touch by adding a sparkly union jack clutch from mcqueen. Since this is not as formal as a state banquet, a slit in the dress is totally appropriate and adds some va-va-voom.

  63. For Royal Ascot, the Roksanda Margot crepe jumpsuit with Kate's black hat from her first Trooping the Colour with her art deco bracelet and matching earrings and her Gianvito Rossi black suede pumps and the Kate Spade evening belles zurie with flower gem clutch and (if the Queen is feeling generous) the Queen's six petal diamond floral brooch. If that is too much black for Royal Ascot or for those who don't like everything matchy-matchy, I'd switch out the shoes and clutch for Kate's neutral LK Bennett sledges and the LK Bennett nina beige nappa leather clutch.

    Congratulations on your blog, you do an amazing job. I am a loyal fan.

    I know this Ascot look is a departure but hey, why not! So the dress would need to be tweaked to work for Ascot. Get rid of the straps and make it a cap or flutter sleeve and the dress would work and be fun.

    Hat - without the black and white ribbon and replace it with a purple ribbon drawing from the purple in the dress.

    Shoes - a bespoke color in these shoes. Leave the black but sub out the pink for a matching purple to the ribbon on the hat.

    Look One.

    In the Royal Repeats category; I would love to see the green Temperley London dress from the India/Bhutan Tour styled with the mystery clutch purse from 2016 Garden Party and the amber earrings from the Poland tour.
    To finish off new shoes from Ted Baker and to an ascot worthy froth of a chapeau from John Boyd (with hair decidedly up!)

  78. My pick for Ascot:

    A Marc Jacobs Midi dress:
    https://www.mytheresa.com/de-de/embellished-dress-543620.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIlvzylpvW1QIVj48bCh2H1wGiEAEYASABEgL6MPD_BwE
    (I would have minor alterations done - place a piece of nude fabric under the sheer eylet part so that the dress is modest enough for Ascot)

    Kate's Gianvito Rossi Ankle Strap D'Orsay pumps she wore with the black dress in Paris:
    https://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/product/791072?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-J84DHJLQkR4-_-Custom-_-LinkBuilder&siteID=J84DHJLQkR4-dSYPnJbcHfDnFgZBhswy3Q&ShopStyle+%28POPSUGAR%29=ShopStyle+%28POPSUGAR%29

    I had a look at Rachel Trevor-Morgan's homepage because I love all the hats she has designed for Kate. I found a great one, but unfortunately, the website isn't that great because you cannot link one of the hats, just the general page :( But I saw that others who have also chosen hats from this millinery had the same problem and just described its position so that's what I'll do as well:
    Style R1787, 4th from the top, 2nd from the left
    http://www.racheltrevormorgan.com/collections/spring-summer/

    A matching clutch bag:

    And of course new Kiki McDonough earrings to add a splash of colour:

    I picked a golden dress as Kate cannot wear this colour for tiara occasions like state banquets because all the tiaras, earrings, necklaces, etc from the royal collection are silver or white gold so this would not match at all.

  86. Hello
    My focus will be the Royal Premiere, but with an Australian flavour.
    One of my favourite designers is Zimmerman. And - one of my favourite looks for Kate was the white sundress by Zimmerman that she wore on Manley beach (Sydney), then later to Wimbledon.

    With Kate’s penchant for lace, I thought this gown would appeal:

    https://www.zimmermannwear.com/readytowear/clothing/dresses/maples-temperance-dress-cream-floral.html

    To continue the Australian theme, the clutch is from Oroton;

    http://www.oroton.com.au/estate-box-clutch-pink-sand_6545433/

    The Prada scalloped suede sandals in cream would complement the look.

    There are many jewellery options with a vintage theme from Kate’s jewellery box, including: Custom wedding Kiki drops, Diamond frame earrings, Chandelier diamond earrings, Eva vintage earrings, Art deco diamond drops and matching bracelet, Queen Mary choker bracelet, The Queen’s wedding cuff bracelet.

    Thanks for the chance to join in Charlotte.
