p.s.. It’s not from this season!
It’s a First Lady and Royal day here at Fos today. I have to say that we’ve kept our pledge of only covering the looks that we feel are worth the second notice and offer something that YOU can take away.
Kate Middleton stepped out for her first solo engagement as a royal yesterday and the blogosphere was aflutter about a perceived mark that was thought to be that of hair extensions. Instead, according to the dailymail.co.uk, “The spokesman for the Duchess at St James’s Palace confirmed last night that it was the result of surgery as a young child. ‘The scar related to a childhood operation,’ they said.”

That said, the Duchess of Cambridge’s Amanda Wakeley gown was truly amazing on her.
The tint of white, the subtle beaded and small bustling flattering details, the bare shoulders, which are out of character for most of Kate’s ensembles, and the general élan befitting of a royal.
But HOLD THE PHONE, unlike many a celebrity, the dress is NOT hot off the runway! It’s not from this season, or even from next season.
Mon dieu, is Kate Middleton’s gown then a rare vintage piece?
The dress is from several seasons back from the Amanda Wakeley Autumn- Winter 2006/7 collection. Thus proving, that good taste is timeless. Think about that the next time that you want to buy something trendy. Elegance endures.
