Kate's Looking Great in Blue

Wednesday April 23, 2014


As always, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge hits just the right fashion note as she wears a blue suit for her departure from New Zealand on the way to Australia with her husband Prince William and baby George. Although at 5'9" in height, Catherine is not a short woman, petites can take a page out of her fashion journal by wearing dark blue when they want to present a professional appearance. It's also a slimming color although the Duchess of Cambridge certainly doesn't need to worry about trying to look thinner than she already is!
