Is Kate Middleton avoiding maternity wear?
The Duchess of Cambridge chooses chic outfits during pregnancy, but has yet to wear anything from a maternity line.
She’s been spotted shopping for clothing several times since the world found out she was pregnant, but so far, Kate Middleton is sticking to non-maternity clothing in her closet.
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.

Love..love....love her style....she has so much poise...grace and above all...class. She soo reminds me of our Jackie( Kennedy Onasis)....young ladies take note.
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.
beauty tips and style advice
Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring the handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein … not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring models of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.

Kate Middleton likes outlet malls too.
Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.
Autumn’s just a few short months away, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?
You could breeze through the rest of summer with the same sheer balm and nude gloss you always wear. Or you could throw caution to the wind and try one of these superfun, superbright lipstick shades we saw on the spring runways. True red, orchid purple, neon orange—these lipsticks are as bold as they are beautiful.
To say Cara Delevingne is trending is an understatement: Her brows are a hot Google search term, she has around 2.8 million (and growing) Instagram followers, and it’s a challenge to find a Pinterest board without her on it.

Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
Although summer is winding down and days spent by the beach are numbered, there is one gift of the dog days that we can take with us through fall: the pearl.
