Kate Can't Go Wrong
What more can I say about Kate Middleton - she kills it every time she steps out. She defines elegance in her every move and fashion choices, which is why IMO she is a true style icon. And while attending the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Middleton couldn't have looked better. Dressed in her go-to designer Alexander McQueen, Middleton wore a firey red dress - which Creative Director Sarah Burton customized just for Middleton - and a gorgeous nude-colored lace dress.
Red is THE color of the moment - it's sexy, powerful, feminine and you can't go wrong with a red dress done right. The pleating in Middleton's dress added a bit of flirty-ness to the look and the long sleeves and knee-length hemline adding a touch of conservativeness - a winning combination!
The lace number was my favorite - truly elegant, romantic and feminine. Lace is a forever trend and in the warm nude color this type of dress will remain a classic through the years. When shopping for your lace dress, it's worth it to spend a bit more on a high-end, fine quality piece as you want it to hold up over time.
Get the looks.

Middleton is the perfect example of how you can make anything look good, whether it's from Zara or a couture Parisian fashion house, it's all about how you carry yourself. I am the first to admit though, I adore all the Alexander McQueen dresses has worn. If I had one fashion wish to be granted today it would be to raid the Alexander McQueen section of Middleton's closet and keep them all for myself! :o)
