The Duchess of Cambridge, the young international beauty icon, in her first time as a model posed for 100 years of Vogue UK in a photo shoot by Josh Olins.
With every outfit tailored to perfection, even during both pregnancies, the young style icon Kate Middleton sports long, natural brown hair, sometimes brightened by a few subtle highlights.
Her splendid mane is always shiny and super-healthy looking. She prefers her hair down with smooth styling or slightly wavy with a few waves to frame her face. She often opts for half-updos or pony tails for less formal occasions, while for important soirée or official engagement she wears perfectly coiffed buns that are both refined and simple.
If etiquette so requires, she will also elegantly yet easily wear lovely small hats or fascinator that pay homage to the late Lady Di and that most likely are given the Queen’s blessing.
Prince William’s wife has, up to now, gotten us used to her impeccable fashion sense that has made her a reference point for many young women. A perfect example is her latest outfit for the celebration of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebration, for which she once again dared to mix trends as the most quoted fashion bloggers are wont to do. In a mix&match look that nods to low-cost, pret-à-porter and haute couture at the same time, she showed up with a red Zara coat (already sold out) over a white Dolce&Gabbana dress.
So the fact that British Vogue selected her for the front cover of their June issue was no surprise. The magazine, an institution in the world of fashion, for its one-hundredth anniversary, will publish a shot by the influential fashion photographer Josh Olins that portrays Kate smiling in a country-chic look. A suede jacket and boyish white shirt, straight hair and nude-look make-up, all to emphasise a wide-brimmed vintage hat… Kate looks young, beautiful, and super cool!
Josh Olins’s photos portraying Kate Middleton are part of the “Vogue 100: A Century of Style” gallery, which was opened May 22 at the National Portrait Gallery in London and will open at the Manchester Art Gallery next June 24.
