POLL: Favorites of 2014 – Duchess Kate’s Dresses and Gowns (updated with appearances announcement)

While we wait for Kate Middleton to actually do something (on Jan 15 and 16, update below), here are a few year-end polls of Kate’s clothes from 2014 (I’ll have a look at other royal ladies’ 2014 fashion later). I separated Kate’s outfits into four categories: Dresses, Gowns, Coats, and Separates. I left out the pants outfits because they all look the same and there is no point picking a favorite out of those. In each category I separated the outfits by color, R-O-Y-G-B-V style (more like R-P-O-Y-G-T-B-V-W-Gr-Br-Bl actually). I’m splitting the polls into two installments. The first installment has polls for Kate’s dresses and gowns. The second installment will have polls for Kate’s coats and separates, as well as a poll for Kate’s hats.

Duchess Kate wears black for Northside visit

Sigh. Someone needs to tell Duchess Kate that she shouldn’t wear black to a children’s center. Someone also needs to tell Duchess Kate to stop wearing Goat coats, because even when she has them lengthened, they are still too short. For her second day in New York, Kate Middleton visited the Northside Center for Child Development where she, accompanied by Chirlane McCray, the First Lady of New York City, toured the center, met with children (and actually bent all the way down to talk to them), and wrapped Christmas presents. Kate then went to a lunch reception at the British Consul General’s residence. Note on coverage: Williams’ stuff, the NBA game, and the conservation reception (to which Kate is now going) will be in separate posts.

Duchess Kate at SportsAid athlete workshop

As Patron of SportsAid (since 2013), Kate Middleton attended the SportsAid athlete workshop at the GSK Human Performance Lab yesterday, November 12. The Duchess of Cambridge was there to see thirty 16-20 year old athletes take part in a series of scientific assessments on respiration, temperature, power, cognition and body composition designed to help them reach their goal of attending the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020, or the Paralympic Games in PyeongChang in 2018. Paralympic wheelchair athlete David Weir CBE attended the workshop as did Olympic swimmer Keri-anne Payne, who gave a mentoring session.

Kate visits school for M-PACT Plus

Our dear Kate Middleton made an appearance yesterday in Islington, north London, to the Blessed Sacrament School to check in on a project she and the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry (could that name be any longer?) launched last year, M-PACT Plus.  M-PACT Plus, which stands for Moving Parents and Children Together, is a program that provides early support for children aged 8-17 affected by parents who have drug or alcohol addictions.  It’s a joint project by two of Kate’s patronages, Place2Be and Action on Addiction.  So don’t confuse it with the air circuit breakers.  Kate was joined by comedian John Bishop, who was there representing Comic Relief, who helped fund the project with the Royal Foundation.  Bishop gave a speech; Kate did not.
