Probably due to the 90-something degree weather in New York right now, the fact that I shouldn’t be wearing black trench coats has me obsessing over them. Yesterday, when I was checking out the latest issue of Interview, I noticed that Kristen Stewart had decided to rub it in.
The Western Hemisphere may not be temperature-friendly enough for this ensemble at the moment, but the styling is perfect for the Snow White heroine. Maybe I’ll make a pit stop in Australia to test drive this baby on my way back to London….

Catherine Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, just navy threesomed us.
In a whirlwind 24 hour time slot, she first arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport in a silk and cotton-blend dress by Roland Mouret, a one-button blazer by Toronto-based designer Smythe, a Mulberry Polly Push lock shoulder bag, and navy blue pumps by Manolo Blahnik. What we really want? A look at her on-plane outfit!
It could very well have been this navy Resort 2012 dress by Erdem. Ever conscious of her critique in the media, choosing Candian designer Erdem Moralioglu was a great choice as she arrived at Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. She paired the dress with a nude clutch, nude L.K. Bennett pumps, and a new hairstyle. Salon in the sky; the ultimate in luxury.
Last (and least): she atteneded a reception in the house of the Governor General of Canada. After a jam-packed day, you really can’t fault her for choosing a simple wrap dress by Issa and low, matching wedges from L.K. Bennett. Kate Middleton really has her ‘style uniform‘ down pat.
Last night, New York’s “Mildred Pierce” premiere brought us a stunning Kate Winslet. She opted for a recent runway look by sporting a stretched black, cut-out dot Stella McCartney Fall/Winter 2011 dress. Combining such a body-skimming garment with her curvaceous figure and new peroxide hair, you have to wonder why anyone insists on airbrushing the bombshell. Her black and nude strappy heels were also Stella McCartney, and her gold tube clutch was designed by Calvin Klein.
Last night, Leighton Meester wore an ornate, long Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 dress to the Golden Globes. The night before, the Gossip Girl was at the Art of Elysium sporting a Louis Vuitton dress and clutch along with Roger Vivier heels, combined with another face of elegant, minimalist makeup. I just can’t quit you, Meester.
