Always flawless and perfectly in keeping with her royal duties, even at the parade for the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cambridge was spectacular, but with the usual ease. A matter of style and ability to adapt, even in the look, to her real duties.
She doesn’t miss one and she always confirms herself as a style inspiration on every occasion. The Duchess of Cambridge also at the latest event, the military parade for the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s jubilee, Trooping the Colors, held in The Mall, London, was flawless and perfectly in keeping with her royal duties.
For her public appearance, she dusted off an Alexander McQueen white blazer-dress and a Philip Tracey hat, all amplified by a proven beauty look, the kind she wears on occasions when protocol dictates the rules. rules.
An essential detail first of all was the standard crop, lateral, made with a maxi torchon, a variation on the theme of the usual braided bun, designed to accommodate her hair and to show the family jewels. Kate has, in fact, put on display with her strategic maxi bun a pair of earrings that once belonged to the late Lady Diana.
Just a few days ago, for the premiere of To Gun: Maverick in London, Kate Middleton on the red carpet had instead adopted a style code more suited to a Hollywood star, straight hair, parting in the middle and eyeliner combined with a shiny lipstick peach color, very bright.
Kate knows when to dare, when to show her ability to follow trends and when instead to choose, with the same ease, her collected crops, which capture the attention not because they scream “look at me”, but because they perfectly reflect the mood of the occasion.
In this case, the inspiration for Kate Middleton’s hairstyle almost seems to be taken from Star Wars (in time for the very recent release, on May 27, of the spin-off of the star saga airing on Disney Plus Obi Wan Kenobi, who is clever Kate!) Which brings back Princess Leia. In a certain sense, Kate, dressed in white, seemed to evoke her, the twin sister of Luke Skywalker, with her hairstyle, the effect of her pinwheel, the iconic space buns.
Kate, in fact, unlike the other times, has collected the lengths sideways by rolling them on themselves, as if they had been wrapped around a maxi curler, then from this show, to lean softly behind the ear, where they were fixed with invisible hairpins . A real work of art.
In order not to obscure her intricate hairdressing work, the future queen consort has paired it with her most tried and tested makeup. She had soft smokey eyes, not too accentuated, made with a soft shade of dove-gray eyeshadow to not create a too sexy look, as would have happened if she had opted for a classic cat eye drawn with black eyeliner; very bright face dusted with peach blush, to simulate a naturally sun-kissed cheek – in fact the blush was applied to the upper part of the cheekbone and directed towards the temples, the point most exposed to light but also the one that allows you to create a slight lifting effect; finally, shiny and pink lips, not too showy, but bright, to have a light point that does not make the smile disappear, but rather enhances it.
To complete the make-up, the perfect frame could not be missing: contemporary eyebrows, combed upwards, microblading effect, as they say among the Z generation, and slightly darkened by a pencil of the same tone, so as not to vanish under the shadow of the hat.
