Kate Middleton’s Cream Sweater Dress: Love It Or Hate It?

July 5th, 2011 // 2 Comments

The gorgeous get-ups Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has been sporting since her arrival in Canada last Friday have the interweb abuzz.  Yesterday, HRH decided to go drop-waist retro/rich-people-of-the-roaring-twenties-on-the-tennis court, reminding us ever-so-slightly of “that woman” for whom King Edward VIII abdicated the throne (style-wise only.  To compare her to Wallis Simpson is to spit in Kate’s face).  With locks tied back in a ponytail, the Duchess greeted the people of Charlottetown and accepted a bouquet of flowers at Province House, the location where the idea of the nation of Canada was created.

Will’s #1 gal wore a cream cable knit sweater dress by Alexander McQueenThe National Post‘s Nathalie Atkinson described the Duchess’s choice as  “a nod to both the era of Anne of Green Gables and to Prince Edward Island’s grand Victorian and Edwardian seaside resort heritage and heyday, as epitomized by Stanhope, circa 1855, Dalvay-by-the-Sea (a Queen Anne Revival structure built in 1895 and featured in Road to Avonlea.”  Yes.  What she said.

    She looks like she has developed an eating disorder. Nice dress, but she is skin and bones.
