Dress: Jenny Packham, Clutch: Prada






































The first thing I saw on the internet today were these pictures of William & Catherine from last night.
How beautiful is Catherine’s dress?
I’m really into nude/pink colors lately and I think it’s really pretty.

But the thing is; I knew I had seen that dress before.

It was only after reading an article about the upcoming Royal Wedding in Monaco that I knew where I saw it… On Gossip Girl!
Blair wore a similar dress when her prince (Louis of Monaco) proposed to her.

If this was real life, Catherine and Blair would totally be BFFs, don’t you think?
Who do you think wore it best, Catherine or Blair?


Have a lovely weekend,
Sara

(Sorry for the lack of updates and the absence of outfit posts but I’ve been really busy…)

  1. Kate and Wills look such a good couple together don't they? I remember seeing them on the news last night and thinking that dress was gorgeous - shame she seems to be getting really skinny these days xx

  2. Blair wore it be best simply because she's Blair Waldorf. I love that girl! & I have to agree with you, the nude/dusty pink colors are catching my attention as well, they're so classy and feminine.

    And I agree with the comment before mine, Rachel, Kate does seem to be getting a bit thin...

    XOXO

  3. I had the same exact thoughts!! I think they are both stunning. I noticed that each gown is slightly different...I can't choose who wore it best!! :)

    Can I be best friends with both of them?? :)

  4. yeah, jenny packham needs to stop charging an arm and a leg for such beautiful dresses! i almost bought one of her cocktail dresses for my 'reception dancing dress'....but couldn't afford it. *sighhh* i guess adoring her beauties from afar will have to do ;)

  5. Oh, wow! Great spotting there. I think it looks better on Blair, personally. I feel it washes Kate out a bit...

  6. Yowsa! I think they are so perfect for each other. She looks like a goddess in that dress. I mean, wow. That's funny about the girl from Gossip Girl. They both look good in it, but the Duchess totally has the Wow feel to it. Have a great weekend and I hope exams are over!!!

  7. Oooh I am so divided. It looks good on both brunettes but you know, Kate's the real princess here.

  8. I think it looks beter on Catherine. It looks a bit to big on Blair I think. But of course they both look beautiful. Oke nu besef ik pas dat ik even goed in het Nederlands had kunnen schrijven.. Oke so what! :p
    Veeeeel succes nog en daarna genieten van de vakantie!!

  10. Oo love the dress!! Idem toen ik hem zag bij Kate dacht ik ook van huh heb dat kleedje precies nog ergens gezien, en toen scrolde in naar beneden en daar was het dan, on Blair! hihi :D

    I also think it looks better on Kate :) It's a little bit "to much" I think for Blair :)

  11. Echt een prinsessenjurk zoals ik ze me al als een klein meisje inbeeldde. Prachtig!

  12. Ja hij kwam mij ook bekend voor! Echt een hele mooie jurk. Ik vind hem bij blair iets mooier, omdat hij bij kate wat fletser is? maar alsnog heel mooi.

  36. everything about that dress is perfect - the color, the sheerness, the sleeves.

  37. I think Leighton Meester is way more beautiful... Kate seems to be turning into a skeleton--yikes! But the dress is beautiful anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I fell absolutely in love with Kate's Jenny Packham dress- it's the first outfit of hers I've ever really liked- but I thought it looked familiar... I can't believe how similiar it is to Blair's!
    xox,
    Cee

  39. Kate is amazing! She has perfect fashion sense. That dress is amazing!

  40. Je trouve que la robe va drôlement bien à Kate, ça change des couleurs qu'elle porte d'ordinaire. Contrairement à Catherine, Blair porte trop souvent le même genre de robes. Même si elle est splendide dedans, je la préfère sur Kate Middleton ! tout ça m'a donné envie de re regarder Gossip Girl ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my god! She looks soooooo good I would never have noticed that it was the same as Leighton's! Catherine is such a babe :)
