Duchess Kate Glows At Zara Phillips’ Wedding, Recycles Another Outfit [PHOTOS]

July 30th, 2011 // 2 Comments

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (or Countess of Strathearn when she’s up in Scotland) is untouchable.  True, her fascinator at Zara Phillips‘ wedding looks a bit like a potato chip. BUT HRH wears it well.  And look!  There’s even a flower adorning the back.  As you’ve heard by now, Catherine recycled yet another outfit this weekend.  This time it was the same embroidered champagne coat she wore to Laura Lopes‘ (nee Parker Bowles) wedding in May of 2006.  Here we are, five years later and Catherine looks more radiant than ever.  Love the diamond drop earrings, BTW.  Hope we can get a peek at what you’ll wear later tonight at the reception, held at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess once told a friend that she wasn’t interested in being a clothes horse.  Aware of the economic climate, Catherine reportedly said, “Times are tough; I cannot be expected to wear a new outfit for every royal engagement. I am not a fashion model.”  No, you’re not…YOU’RE BETTER.

We love you, Catherine.  Thank you for making it OK to be an outfit repeater (wasteful celebrities, take note!).

    If Kate wore a different dress everyday they would complain. If she wears something more than once they call it recycled. Get over it, if you all didn’t point it out no one would have noticed. Guess what recycled clothes are what most women and men wear everyday, and are just happy that they have clothes. Hang in there Duchess it is just beginning. The press is a huge burden. I love you and you always look gorgeous to me.

    • We applaud Catherine’s mindfulness of the tough economic times, and seeing her recycle beautiful pieces is one more reminder of how much we love her. We’re not down with attacking the Duchess.
