Not everyone can pull off a cape dress. But Queen Letizia of Spain sure can. Queen Letizia wore this stunning red Stella McCartney gown to the private birthday party of King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands. The event was held in The Hague, and the Queen attended with King Felipe. Her understated and elegant gown featured an asymmetrical cape draping over one arm while leaving the other bare.
Queen Letizia paired the dress with a silver beaded clutch and matching diamond jewelry. Oh, and don’t forget her bold red lip that perfectly matched the shade of her dress. We love this gown on Queen Letizia. She must have felt the same way because she wore this dress again to a Spanish state dinner later that year.
Celebrating With Dior
On July 10th, 2018, Markle wore a stunning little black dress by Dior to the Royal Air Force’s 100th Anniversary ceremony at Westminster Abbey, London. Despite the color, the dress was quite similar to her wedding dress, with its simple shape and boat neck neckline, which flattered her frame.
She made the look even more fabulous with a stylish fascinator, nude pointy pumps, and Cartier earrings. To highlight the beautiful neckline of the dress, the Duchess wore her hair in a sleek bun.
Alexander McQueen for the Duchess
Alexander McQueen is a well-known, high-fashion designer worldwide and also a favorite of the Duchess. This stunning blue taffeta dress of Kate’s was designed by Alexander McQueen and accented by a tiara. The subtle, baby blue hue of the dress added an extra touch of elegance to its design.
Unfortunately for Kate, the gown drummed up quite a bit of controversy in the press, but it was still worth the risk. She accessorized with pearl earrings, a pearl necklace (that happened to belong to the Queen Mother), and of course, a tiara.
Top Gun, Royal Style
William and Kate stole the show when they attended the “Top Gun: Maverick” movie premiere in London. The May 2022 premiere was a star-studded event, but all eyes were on the Duke and Duchess, for good reason. They both looked absolutely stunning. While William worked a classic tuxedo, Catherine wore a Roland Mouret gown.
The black-and-white gown is the epitome of class and Old Hollywood glamor. The gorgeous gown features an off-the-shoulder bodice and a classic hourglass silhouette. Kate completed her glam look with diamond drop earrings in the shape of starbursts and a classic smokey eye. This whole look is the epitome of Kate’s famous, elegant style.
Princess Margaret in Magenta
Princess Margaret was coined “The Royal Rebel” for a number of reasons, one of them being her bold sense of style. The royal princess wore this bold, bright pink gown at Claridge’s in 1992. While Queen Elizabeth was known for wearing bright pastels, Princess Margaret definitely stole the show in this bright, magenta look.
Princess Margaret’s floor-length gown features voluminous draping and bold puff sleeves, both of which were signatures of 80s fashion. Her look is a perfect example of the transition between late 80s and early 90s fashion. Ever the rebel, Margaret completed her look with gold open-toe sandals. Royals are usually prohibited from wearing open-toe shoes. Not this princess.
