According to Fashionista, Kate made an appearance this week in a Peter Pan collar dress from Topshop while visiting the Child Bereavement UK headquarters. And this isn’t the first time Kate has sported the fashion brand since her pregnancy.

Fashionista says the duchess stopped by the store several times this past month, picking up “a non-maternity Lovestruck dress,” continuing on her path with not wearing any maternity wear so far in her pregnancy.

Maternity wear or non-maternity wear, the Duchess of Cambridge continues to create stir with her wardrobe across the globe. We can’t wait to see what she wears once the baby bump starts expanding.

I like her style ,very simple, she does not need maternity clothes now. As long as she is in good health and she is comfortable in what she is wearing that's what counts.

To the author (Kim Anne) Not every woman needs to wear clothing designed like a tent when she is pregnant.  The Duchess of Cambridge is ALWAYS tastefully dressed and eloquent.  Stop with making up stories about this couple.

 

Almost 30 years ago, I did not wear any maternity clothing until I was almost 34/36 weeks pregnant and then it was mostly large shirts.  Some of us are very thin (especially first pregnancies) and really do not delight in looking like an oversize cow (i.e. Kim Kardashian) that needs milking.  Leave Kate Middleton ALONE and let her enjoy her pregnancy and stop with every damn detail.  Some of us do not follow tradition or what others do - I congratuate her on her independence.  Just too bad that she has the grace and manners of her present status in life because I would love to someone even Fergie, one of her daughters or even Prince Harry to tell the press to 'F' off.

 

The Duchess of Cambridge is someone that many young woman should model themselves more like in this country because as my previous comment eludes about the Kardashian women - they sound nasty and look nasty.  They leave a nasty taste in my mouth and are an embarrassment not only to themselves but as Americans they can hardly be called fashionable.  If anyone starts a trend I would much rather see someone like the Duchess of Cambridge have an influence on pregnant women than the Kardashians.  I even applaud the Duchess avoiding a meeting in England earlier this year with KK in order to remove herself from any potential controversy.

 

My best to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - LEAVE THEM ALONE!

She is a beautiful girl, but she had better stop tanning too often. Her skin is looking a little leathery beyond her years. As for not wearing maternity wear, she is very thin to star with, so I am sure it will take a while to show, or a while before she will even need maternity wear.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
