Happy one-year anniversary, Prince William and Kate Middleton! Who can forget they royal wedding last year on April, 29. You cried, we cried and we all fell in love with her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown. Magical for everyone, right? Through this first year of them being married, Will and Kate have only succeeded in endearing themselves even more to the world because of the fact that they’re so frickin’ adorable together! Their tour through Canada and the U.S provided tons of moments of their very evident affection for each other, even though they tried their hardest to be prim! And on their home turf in England, we totally fell for Kate giggling while William showed off his dance moves at Centrepoint, last year in December?
Because of the fact that we adore these two, we wanted to do something to celebrate their one-year anniversary. It’s our little present to them. We already published an exhaustive gallery and poll of Kate’s top 25 style moments through her first year as Duchess of Cambridge, as an homage to her spot-on fashion sense. Now, we’d like to give you something of them doing what they do best — being a couple. And Voila! We have a gallery right below of Kate and Williams 15 most adorable moments together through the year. Click through each picture to look at their journey full of love, hugs, kisses and laughs. Happy happies, Will and Kate! We look forward to seeing many more years of you two being the cutest royal pair ever.
Has it already been a year since Prince William and Kate Middleton got hitched? It will be on Sunday, April 29, and we’re going to swig a glass or two (or three) for the royal couple. More than anything, this last year is when we completely fell in love with Kate and her winsome style. Seriously, the woman never fails to put her best fashion foot forward. More than anything, she puts in a lot of thought into the political context of her clothes, which is always appreciated. Remember when she wore Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu while visiting Canada? Or that fab red Maple Leaf hat by Lock And Co. on Canada Day celebrations? Smart moves, gurl. And they — along with her gracious personality — have only served to win her more fans.
So, in celebration of her royal style and of her impending one-year anniversary on Sunday, we’ve compiled an epic gallery of Kate’s top 25 looks. It was a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. But we also want you to get involved. We’ve got a numbered list of all the 25 looks right below, in order of our preference. Go through the list (you won’t be sorry) which is linked to the corresponding picture in the gallery. The gallery is also numbered from 1-25 in case you want to go straight to it. Below it, we’ve got ourselves a poll of the top 15 of that list. We’d love for you to vote and tell which is your favorite. We’ve even got the designers and milliners down for every outfit, so have a ball, click away and vote, vote, vote!
One of the perks about being a part of the Royal Family is that you get to play dress up a lot of the time. They always have some parade this, some function that, and their wardrobes — and their headgear — have to keep up. A particular English quirk also happens to be the ever present fascinator. The Royal Wedding was a fine example of this fad.
The latest hat-off just happened Prince William and his new bride, Duchess Catherine Middleton at yesterday’s Order of the Garter service. The Queen, Prince William and other members of the Royal Family took part in the annual parade wearing plush blue velvet robes and spectacular (we say this while giggling) black velvet hats with white plumes. But does William pull it off? We think so! His wife, Catherine, wore a stunning Philip Treacy headpiece that complemented her grey dress and coat quite nicely. But who looks better? Can’t make up your mind about who wins this round? Look at our gallery for separate pictures of the two and then go ahead and vote!
As if her Sara Burton wedding dress wasn’t gorgeous enough, Kate Middleton’s second gown, which the Duchess of Cambridge slipped into for their post wedding celebrations, was an equally beautiful Alexander McQueen gown with matching angora bolero. Because if you’re going to marry a prince, you might as well do it right. After the ceremony the newlyweds headed to Buckingham Palace, where the couple will celebrate their love at a party thrown by Prince Charles before retiring at the palace for the night. Meanwhile, we’ll be celebrating the death of all strapless wedding dresses (or so our upper arms hope).
Sure it’s Princess Catherine‘s day, but that doesn’t mean we’re not also ogling at the other Middleton lady in white – her sister and maid of honor, Pippa. Both gowns were designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, both are stunning, but which did you prefer?
So much has been written about Kate Middleton’s spectacular Sarah Burton wedding gown, but there’s one thing that truly unites stately monarchs and commoners alike: a bonkers hat or fascinator that would make Lady Gaga spin in her grave. (No, Lady Gaga’s not dead, but she seems like the type who would sleep in a grave just to be different.) Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice went for some serious height with their giant fascinators, while Posh Beckham kept it simple in a tiny black number. (Husband David Beckham arrived with a top hat in hand!)
So join us as we take a closer look at the headgear highlights of Prince William and Kate’s wedding! Just think of it as our wedding gift, guys. No need to thank us. Although a knighthood would be cool.
But what’s also really beautiful is that two families, royal and commoner, have become one. So to celebrate and commemorate the nuptials, we’ve put together a gallery of the Royals and the Middleton family at Westminster Abbey! From Pippa, James, Carole and Michael who looked so proud of their daughter and sister, Kate (loved that Sarah Burton dress!), to the royals led by a sunshine-yellow clad Queen Elizabeth II and her main man Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, they’re all in the photos below.

We’re totally swept up in Royal Wedding fever (it may be because we’ve been up since 5AM EST with no coffee), and are totally enchanted by Will and Kate Catherine. The newlyweds look gorgeous, relaxed and so in love with each other. Check out these pics of them leaving Westminster Abbey and heading to Buckingham Palace, where they will kiss for the estimated 1.4 million Brits waiting outside!
Good morning! We are up bright in early to weep over Kate Middleton‘s gorgeous wedding gown. The newly crowned Duchess of Cambridge is wearing a long-sleeve dress with lace overlay designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. According to The Times, her tiara “was given by King George VI to the Queen Mother who later gave it to the Queen as a gift on her 18th birthday.” Her sister and Maid of Honor Pippa Middleton is also wearing Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Kate’s shoes are McQueen too (we see a trend!). According to Elle UK, Kate apparently did her own make up. What a shocking and wonderfully down to earth move from the future Queen of England. Yep, we’re fangirling!
