Pippa has no style: Finally the Daily Mail is catching on

Oh my gawd!  The Daily Mail has an article up all about Pippa’s awful style sense.  I have thought for a long time that Pippa had no taste in clothes and didn’t know how to put an outfit together, but the DM continually lauded her dress sense and tried to push on us that Pips was some huge fashion girl.  Well not anymore.  This article completely trashes Pippa’s style.  It’s amazing!  There are some great quips in there, but this quote just sums up her whole style perfectly:

Is Kate lying about her due date?

There are new reports that Kate could be lying about the due date for her baby and that she could be due ten days earlier than has been previously reported.  It was first reported that she was due in July, then they narrowed it down to mid-July, then some media outlets were saying anywhere from July 13-15 (I’ve seen different outlets say different days, so I’m not sure).  Well now the Telegraph has a story about how Kate could by lying and that they think she’s actually due in the first week of July.  Apparently Diana told everyone that her due date was July 1 (with William), but she delivered ten days early, on June 21.  They keep harping on the fact that Kate refused to attend the Percy wedding last weekend (and instead went shopping) because she was afraid she would deliver early; but as I’ve said previously, I think that was just a fib so that it wouldn’t look bad when she didn’t attend when the real reason was the Percy’s didn’t want her there.  Of course, Kate has been so thin throughout her pregnancy that if she is due earlier than previously thought, my god she is tiny for a nine months pregnant woman.  Seriously.  If you were to tell me that she was due later than previously reported, I’d totally believe you since she looks nowhere near the end of her pregnancy.

TV presenter wants Kate to breastfeed in public: good idea or unneeded drama?

This story aggravates me.  I have no idea who this woman is but she has just used Kate Middleton’s name to piggyback one of her own causes—much like the lingerie woman.  That in itself is annoying enough, but this woman is kind of an idiot if she thinks what she’s asking for would in any way benefit anyone.  She’s not thinking clearly about the outcome of her request.

The Wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee

The Duke of Northumberland’s second daughter, Lady Melissa Percy, married Thomas van Straubenzee in a ceremony in Alnwick today.  It was billed as the “society wedding of the year” and the “royal wedding of the North”.  There were about 500 people in attendance, including: Prince Harry, Prince William, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Chelsy Davy (who served as a bridesmaid), Pippa Middleton, and Cressida Bonas (go here and here to get the rundown of the who’s who of the society set that attended the wedding).  Kate Middleton was “unable” to attend due to “fear that she might go into labor early”.  The bride arrived in a 200 year old family carriage that has been fully restored.  I will be covering the fashion from the wedding in a separate post so as to not over clutter one post.  Go here for the Order of Service.  I’m sure it was a beautiful wedding, and, from what I can tell in pictures, the bride and groom do seem happy.  Congratulations and best wishes on their wedding and good luck for the future!

Princess Eugenie set to take on full time job in New York

I want to take a minute and acknowledge Princess Eugenie’s new job (starting in October) at an auction house in New York.  I applaud Eugenie for getting her degree in Art History and not wasting it, like Kate Middleton.  Eugenie has been working in internships since she got her degree, while still taking on royal duties.  Now she is set to take on a full time job at an auction house in New York this October.  “‘She is determined to be a working woman with a full-time job,’ says the friend.”  If this is true, and it looks like it is, then good for her.  She is one of the better royals for thinking and acting like this and she deserves some credit.  So credit where credit is due: Good job Eugenie! Go get ’em, girl!

Join in the conversation: What do you think of Eugenie’s new job?

Kate Middleton’s lingerie: Did we really need to know?

Have you ever wondered what type of lingerie Kate Middleton wears?  Certainly not me, but I guess now we know.  Or at least that’s what this lingerie designer thinks.  This designer apparently sent Kate some free pieces and got a note back saying, “thank you for the thoughtful gift”.  I’m not sure what the standard response is to free gifts, but I’m pretty sure that’s it.  I am surprised that Kate, or Kate’s people, didn’t send the gift back.  Supposedly Kate is not allowed to take free samples, but is allowed to accept a nice discount (like 90% maybe?).  Anyway… This is another blatant attempt by a designer/website/etc. to link their name with Kate Middleton to generate press for themselves and draw in potential customers.  The thing is, though, is that Kate Middleton clearly isn’t a well-respected, married duchess who is about to give birth to her first child, or else a story about what type of lingerie she may or may not wear would never have been printed.  It says a lot that such a story would be printed about her.  Clearly she’s not the “wonderful savior of the monarchy/Diana 2.0” that everyone was hoping for.

Kate Middleton: world’s greatest style icon?

Before I begin, I would like to say that this seems like a plug for the website that carried out the “survey” rather than an actual consensus of what people in Britain think.  So it is not surprising that Kate Middleton just so happened to be at the top of a “most fashionable celebrity” list.  Not to mention put in the same category as iconic women like Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn.  I would not be surprised if the woman who led this “survey” cooked the books to make sure the Daily Mail (DM) printed a story about it, the DM will do anything to make “Kate Middleton, the style icon” happen.  And they love nothing more than to put her name in the same article with Princess Diana.  So let’s take this one with a grain of salt, shall we.
