Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge had our hearts from the moment she stepped in India on her tour. The royalty, the charm and the sparkling smile that cast a magic spell on us, have made its way onto the June edition of Vogue, British cover for their historic 100th anniversary.
The Duchess is here to embark on her first fashion shoot and we have no uncertainty over her cover looks being the best of Vogue’s so far.
While we were expecting more of the regal, formal looks, the photographer Josh Olins featured her in casual countryside apparel in Norfolk.
For the cover shoot, she picked a Burberry trench coat over a classic white shirt and vintage felt hat. She kept her makeup very natural and gently ruffled her hair. Being very earthy, she picked the lipstick also a shade of brown. The Burberry coat in a chocolate brown leather touch is from Italy and also has a vintage collar pattern. Her felt hat is a pick from the vintage website Beyond Retro.
In her next still for the portfolio, she was spotted in a red Breton-striped top and a skinny pair of jeans. The smile is all that sets the heart beats on race. She kept her makeup very homely and natural. The brunette tresses were given a perfect princess look with the right amount of volume and waves.
These photographic portraits are going to be displayed as part of the Vogue 100: A Century Of Style exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.
The Vogue editor Alexander Shulman and Director of the National Portrait Gallery Nicholas Cullinan are clicked while looking at the Duchess portraits at the gallery.
The Director of National Portrait Gallery, Nicholas Culliman, passed a statement saying –“Josh has captured the Duchess exactly as she is-full of life, with a great sense of humor, thoughtful and intelligent, and in fact, very beautiful”.
Have to agree with him on that note. The Duchess definitely looks full of life and the happy looks of her brings a wide smile on our faces too.
