The royal baby, who is just a few days old, is already a trend-setter-in-training, thanks to his mamma’s fashion choices.

According to the Telegraph, in his first public appearance, he wore a 100 percent cotton muslin swaddle from brand aden + anais, and the mini-garb has already sold out in the U.K. “We are truly grateful and so delighted that the couple chose to debut the prince in aden + anais. It is such an honor,” said aden + anais founder Raegan Moya-Jones. (Word on the street is that although the blanket is sold out in the U.K., it’s still available in the U.S.)

But wait, there’s more. The baby actually wore two outfits during his debut, the second being a merino wool shawl designed by G.H. Hurt and Co., which is apparently still available as well.

Tell us: Would you buy the outfits in which the royal prince made his debut?

  answer to Nancy,

    I don't see where from my comment you think I am angry... I am a very practical person and confident in myself and my choices that I don't feel I need to emulate someone else to be vain or trendy.

I was not a Lady Di fan,  I had a different opinion of her than most, but I have been so interested in Princess Kate and baby Prince George this past month.

 

It has been an interesting bright spot in our dismal world in this country that is being wrecked by congress and trashed by big business.

 

Most of us who have had a baby born in our family can relate to the ups and downs the couple have experienced.

 

It was a lot more interesting than watching the 'same old, same old' of our government.  Sometimes it seems as if Boehner and Obama could just do a replay of the the first disagreement they had over the budget because nothing happens that is new or that changes anything..  It is sadly ridiculous.

I think like most kind of normal American male people, I cant get all giddy over royal babies.  But that doesn't mean I don't like royal babies.  Just means I don't get what the hoopla is.  Glad it is healthy.  I do know one thing from my kinda point of view.  I hope these Prince people wont be so stuffed up as that old Queen bag and that big eared old Prince dude.  I can see getting tightened up for all the Royal functions and traditions and stuff, but then you should be able to just live life like people and not have to be 'on' 24/7.  Maybe laugh and hold hands or cram a hot dog in your mouth once and a while.  I don't know.  But the money and servants would be cool.

Amen to the comment that William cannot help who is grandmother and or the priviledges he was born to anymore then his new little boy.

 

William and his younger brother are hard working young men and do not go

out and seek the spot light.  Clearly, if William had his way he would live in

the country side and continue his passion flying helicopters and where he saves

peoples' lives.

 

He and his wife cannot help if people are going ga, ga and goo, goo over their baby.

I think seer is salivating a little too much over the visions of real and imagined atrocities he or she is gleefully writing about. In any event, the baby is innocent of all wrongdoing, and to wish harm to an innocent child is no better than those atrocities. For that matter, William is innocent too. He can't help that he is the Queen's grandson, and he has made no foreign policy. I think people who are so busy hating that they can't allow anyone else to be happy about the birth of a new baby are just too hateful and miserable to even waste air. If they aren't hurting you, who cares what you think? If you don't like them, don't read about them. Simple as that.

Why venerate the "royal family" whose lineage is connected to atrocities committed by the British Empire in their colonies in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America, well everywhere. For one, imagine waves upon waves of pervert British pedophiles feasting on children in these colonies year after year after year... The British never apologized for these horrific crimes against humanity. I have not even mentioned the many massacres, pillaging... etc., etc., etc.

So sad there are so many haters here.  I think that Wills and Kate are adorable and I am so happy and excited for their new little prince.  Only wish Princess Di had lived to see it.  I love it all and if I still had little ones I would try to buy copies if I could.  It's healthy to dream.  They are good role models for young and old alike.  My blessings to them for a wonderful and happy life.

    10 of the sexiest denim campaigns of all time

    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.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    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.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    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?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    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.
