That was fun, wasn't it? Kate Middleton and Prince William just wrapped up their Diamond Jubilee tour of Southeast Asia and headed home yesterday, likely exhausted from all that dancing they did, and all those boobies they saw. Even though the Duchess was probably pooped, she still managed to pull off some impossibly chic airport-style. She and William left Tuvalu Tuesday -- he in a suit, no tie, she in a floral Project D. London frock and L.K. Bennett heels -- and flew to Australia, where they were catching a connecting flight back to England.
While in Brisbane, Kate slipped into something more comfortable for their endless flight back to the U.K. and wore her signature dark-wash skinny jeans, a white knit sweater, an Alice Temperley scarf, and a classic Longchomp carry-all. And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Kate's enviable travel style.
And always has. At least, ever since she's become royalty. She's looked effortlessly chic upon landing and arrival in various locations and always steps off the plane in fluent and uncomplicated stylish ensembles.
There was this dark jean and blazer look (same pants she was wearing yesterday, perchance?), the Roksanda Ilincic peridot dress she wore when she arrived in L.A., the bright printed Jonathan Saunders dress from her visit to Marau, and the pale yellow eyelit frock she donned in Honiara.
But far and away my favorite Kate Middleton airport outfit has been her all-navy Roland Mouret dress with a Smythe blazer and Mulberry bag. She sported that European princess meets old-school Hollywood ensemble as she boarded the plane for their Canada tour back in June 2011.
Kate's got some killer style 30,000 feet off the ground, but come on, you gotta wonder, when she falls asleep on the plane, do you think she snoozes with her head thrust back and her mouth wide open? If she doesn't, then wow, her airplane style really is top, top notch.
How do you dress for travelling? Like Kate's looks?
