Kate Wore a Real Conversation-Starting Headband to Prince Louis's Christening
Today, Prince Louis is being baptised at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace and was carried into the chapel by the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore her go-to designer for special occasions, Alexander McQueen. She chose an ivory dress with a deep-V neckline, puffed shoulders (reminiscent of the silhouette Princess Diana often turned to), and a fluted skirt. This sleeve detail is one that Middleton is particularly fond of this year, as she wore a pale blue dress with the same pronounced shoulders at the Trooping of the Colour.
It's her headband, however, that really got our attention, as she wore a wide band in a matching shade with elaborate flower embellishments to the right-hand side by milliner Jane Taylor. Blair Waldorf would be ever so proud. Taylor has created hats for Kate numerous times before, including one for Prince George's christening.
As for the man of the day, Prince Louis wore the Honiton robe, a replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was made in 1941 for Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Victoria. Prince George and Princess Charlotte both also wore this to their own christenings. The Duchess of Sussex (i.e., Meghan Markle) wore a fitted, belted olive green dress by American designer Ralph Lauren while Pippa Middleton wore a pale blue sleeved midi dress with a pleated skirt by Alessandra Rich.
