© TOPSTAR PicturesThe Duchess of Cambridge has repeatedly proved that she is no snob when it comes to shopping (she is always spotted at her favorite stores Zara and Reiss, among others), and when it comes to her maternity wear, Middleton continues to keep it real!

The mother-to-be showed off a chic printed Zara cape while shopping in West London on Wednesday, which she paired with black leggings a black scarf and riding boots.

And Zara isn’t the only retailer that she is gracing with her presence while she’s expecting. Just last week, she was also seen inside a London Gap store looking for leggings. We can’t wait to see what other adorable ensembles she puts together as her baby bump continues to grow.

Kate's great but your copywriter should know that the plaid is NOT a "print" but a woven pattern.

I am hoping that the trend of super-tight, stretch maternity clothes (and short halter tops and bikinis) will end soon. Nothing like a pregnant woman walking toward you and the first thing you notice is her inside-out navel, highlighted by her skin-tight shirt or dress.

Kate is proving that she is a beautiful and tactful lady!! She should be a wonderful example for all women who are pregnant.  The clothes that are worn by most today are decusting and so ugly,  It is  like someone who is trying to strangle herself and her baby,  Ladies take heed and watch the Duchess as she grows and glows till delivery!  It should be quite educaional to all!!!!

I agree with everyone Kate is a beautiful woman, and I am sure that she will set the trend on how to dress when you are expecting. There are young women out here who dress as though they are trying to get a date (if you know what I mean).People can see that you are expecting, so DRESS TO IMPRESS!!!!!!!

Really, iis it necessary to put "In the Oven"   or " Peas in a Pod"- I feel it is disrespecful to the mother, and it is not cute.

I am a mother of 3, and I did not feel anything but proud  !  I do think the Duchess will be  a good example of what

motherhood is all about.

    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.
