Middleton Magic at the Taj Mahal

Kate Middleton positively dazzled on the final stop of their tour in India. This Naeem Khan (read: Indian-American designer) was absolute perfection on her. The dress was from the designer’s 2015 Resort collection. I appreciate that she’s finally opted to do more of a pointy-toed pump and left the boring round toes in London.

Key to point out, her earrings were anything far from crown jewels. Always one to represent high street, she purchased them from Bhutan’s Tiger’s Nest monastery for reportedly less than $10 CAD.

I think Lady Di would be proud. Kate and Will certainly seem to have created a much happier memory than when Diana was photographed in one of the saddest photos ever at the Taj.

Remember when…

Kate Middleton used to have good hair?


Kate Middleton and British Dolly Parton on the bus in London.

Poor Kate looks T-I-R-E-D. Prince William did say lil G was a screamer.

The Duchess stepped out to meet poppy sellers just before Remembrance Day. She wore her beautiful “recycled” L.K. Bennett Ami burgundy coat. A lovely choice for an important occasion but the coif was something we should forgive and forget.

It’s tough being a new mom. You’re tired, there’s no time, pregnancy can change your hair — but girl just needs a hair cut and a good blow out (read: VOLUME). Abandoning the centre part is also a good thought. 

Where is Richard Ward?? Call him Kate! We won’t think you’re not down-to-earth just because you called in the pros to do your hair. 


And now to reminisce about the times Kate brought us to hair heaven and beyond.

Positively perfect. Next time…after  endless hours researching Kate’s hair, I humbly offer tips.
