What Kate Wore: The White Album
Much like the Beatle’s White Album was the pinnacle of their musical achievement,
Kate Middleton was having a ‘white album’ fashion moment of her own this Easter weekend. As in, she wore pretty much all white, and it was flawless.
George, Kate and Wills began their long weekend with a visit to the Royal Easter Show in Sydney (a sort of fun fair meets livestock show). Given the extended periods of time she spent in close proximity to sheep, Kate’s decision to wear a white, eyelet (or ‘broderie anglaise’) dress was brave if nothing else. (In a strange aside, they apparently met Fred, the actual sheep who had ‘donated wool’ that was used in Wills’ wedding suit). The dress is actually by Aussie label Zimmerman, and is part of their upcoming collection (although demand for the $400 frock is so strong they’re probably releasing it sooner that later). Bonus? It seamlessly transitioned Kate into a spot of surf boarding (see above) later that day…
The next day it was off to Brisbane for possibly the most challenging activity of the tour thus far: getting in and out of a fighter jet in a skirt. Kate managed the feat (in a blue and white LK Bennet frock) with aplomb. We fear it would have been less dignified (but truthfully, more entertaining) if Mindy Kaling, who actually wore that exact dress on TV recently, had been hopping in and out of cockpits…
For Easter Sunday, it was back to Sydney, where Kate kinda-sorta gave a nod to the tradition of wearing white to church on Easter Sunday in a grey-blue Alexander McQueen, which was a custom design based on a past season runway look. As for the hat…bunny ears would have been a more obvious choice, don’t you think?
