Another weekend, another wedding for Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge was joined by hubby Prince William in Somerset on Saturday for the wedding of close friend Alice St. John Webster and guess what? She had a brand new dress on! Well, it's brand new to us royal-watchers at least. Hurrah!
Thanks to Freyja McLennan on Twitter, whose sister sneakily took this snap, we have a glimpse at Kate's pink and white frock which comes courtesy of Beulah London. It features long billowing sleeves, a knee-length hemline and pleating on the shoulders. The ‘Blossom’ pattern is gorgeously feminine and isn't it treat to see Kate giving prints a go? It rather reminds us of that floaty number she wore to the polo last month, which was just as summery despite the day's dodgy weather. Meanwhile, the 30-year-old stuck to her trusty Sledge LK Bennett heels and gave her Natalie clutch, also from LK Bennett, another outing. Ah, some things never change.
Beulah London is an old favourite for Princess Catherine who wore a red Sarai dress by the label to attend a dinner with 100 women in Hedge Funds, in support of the Child Bereavement Charity, back in October. In true matchy-matchy Middleton style, Pippa has also been spotted in Beulah and let's not forget posh totty Millie Mackintosh is a fan too.
As Grazia Daily reported when we met the ladies behind the label, Beulah London is not just a fashion brand with an ethical edge, but a company where the ethics are as important to the founders, Lavinia Brennan and Natasha Rufus Isaacs, as the clothes themselves. In fact, it was the ethical manifesto that came first.
‘Lavinia and I spent two months working in Delhi, with women who had been [sex] trafficked’ says Natasha, ‘and the idea behind the brand is to employ the girls [who had been involved in sex trafficking] in the production’ of the clothing.' Brilliant!
At the time, the designers were understandably delighted that Kate was such a huge fan and picked out ‘some short options, to the knee, which she would look beautiful in… But we’ll see what happens!’ It looks like K-Middy took note...
