William & Kate Have Landed in California

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have touched down at Los Angeles International Airport just before 4 p.m. aboard a grey Canadian military jet as they continue their first official overseas trip as a married couple.

On the tarmac, the pilot flipped open a cockpit window and waved William’s Canadian flag.

Kate left Canada in a red satin and wool scarlet coat-dress by Catherine Walker but changed aboard the flight and emerged under sunny skies in Los Angeles wearing a light blue/gray peridot crepe cowl-neck knee-length dress by Roksanda Ilincic (Was $1,089 Now $761). The dress is available at www.matchesfashion.com

Description from the Matches website is as follows:
‘Light blue grey. Draped neck to one side. Cap sleeves. Pleats down from drape neck to waist band. Pleated skirt. White tulle neckline and cuff trim. Centre back pleats. Small pleated panels from back waist band. Exposed centre back zip. Beige grosgrain front tie.’
Kate accessorized with her woven straw LK Bennett ‘Natalie’ clutch, Jimmy Choo ‘Lovely’ heels in powder pink (4.3″ heel height) and her Kiki McDonough ‘Grace’ earrings.

Jimmy Choo has confirmed that Kate wore their shoes. The following was taken from their Facebook page:

‘We are pleased to announce Duchess of Cambridge wore LOVELY in Powder Pink on her recent trip to Los Angeles and Prince Edward Island

It appears that powder pink is sold out but the shoes are still available in for $525

  1. As someone who spends time looking at close details of the Duchess' look, do you agree with recent articles saying that she has gotten “dangerously skinny?”


  2. I think that Catherine is currently walking a fine line. If she were to lose anymore weight, that may indicate that she has a problem.

    I'm not sure if it's that she's been really busy and just forgotten to eat (I'll often have a day or two like that where things have been so crazy busy that I look at my watch and it's 8pm and I think – oops I forgot to eat today) or she is really feeling pressure to live up to societies' ideals of being 'skinny.'

    She has definitely dropped numerous dress sizes but she still looks healthy so I'm not too concerned at this point.
