Kate Middleton Ditches Her Classic Style For This Bold Look
After channeling late mother-in-law Princess Diana in a custom Catherine Walker houndstooth coatyesterday, Kate Middleton opted for another printed dress, courtesy of Erdem, for her final night in Sweden.
Much like last night’s satin mustard yellow number from the London-based designer, the duchess’ Wednesday night number featured florals. The design, too, isn’t technically a maternity dress.
Attending a reception in celebration of Swedish culture at the Fotografiska Gallery in Stockholm, the pregnant mom of two accessorized her long-sleeved blue velvet dress with silver earrings and black suede Gianvito Rossi pumps featuring a d’Orsay silhouette — a departure from her usual shoe choices.

Middleton often favors classic styles from the likes of Tod’s, Jimmy Choo and Rupert Sanderson, but she ventured out of her comfort zone tonight by choosing an ankle-strap for the occasion.

The princess also wore suede wine-colored pumps from Gianvito Rossi with her floor-length Erdem gown for dinner Tuesday night.
At Wednesday evening’s event, Prince William — who looked dapper in a navy suit and shiny black lace-up shoes — gave a speech in which he talked about how he and Middleton enjoyed their stay in Sweden and invited Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel to visit the U.K.
Tomorrow, the royal couple will spend one final morning in Sweden before heading to Oslo. What will the Duchess of Cambridge wear in Norway?
With three Oscar nods under her belt, Saoirse Ronan is well on her way to becoming one of film’s greatest fashion forces. Most recently, the star, 23, made waves at the 2018 SAG Awards in a long-sleeved pale pink Louis Vuitton silk gown, which she paired with black velvet Christian Louboutin platforms.
在她的三次奥斯卡提名中，Saoirse Ronan正在成为电影届最大的时尚力量之一。最近，这位23岁的明星在SAG Awards颁奖典礼上掀起了一场波澜，她身穿一件Louis Vuitton淡粉色件长袖丝绸礼服，搭配一双Christian Louboutin黑色天鹅绒防水台高跟。

“I don’t swamp her with choices,” said stylist Elizabeth Saltzman. “We make sure whatever it is feels relevant to a mood or strength or an emotion. We try to keep it editorial, pushing it slightly.”
The Irish actress has been on the circuit promoting the Oscar-nominated film “Lady Bird” wearing nonconforming looks by Versace, Gucci, Michael Kors and Calvin Klein, to name a few.

“Saoirse represents young women. She’s extremely smart. She keeps it very real. I try to make sure the clothes don’t wear her and she gets to own herself and [her] personality,” Saltzman said.

As for shoes, the stylist added that comfort is key. “I want her to be confident on her feet. If it has height and stability, I’m in,” she said.
Go-to styles are classics such as Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik, along with more whimsical silhouettes from Charlotte Olympia, Sophia Webster and Laurence Dacade.

With the Oscars about a month away, top designers tout the red carpet as a vital brand-building vehicle. And with Ronan up for the best actress honor, top labels will be looking to dress her. But these days, Saltzman explains, the red carpet is less about competition and more about camaraderie.
