Shopping Spot: Buy Elie Saab blue tulle ruffle dress online as seen on Princess Beatrice leaving her hotel to attend the rehearsal dinner for Petra Ecclestone & James Stunt - as seen on Leigton Meester.
Weekend is upon use now - it's a bank holiday for some, while others will be preparing for a storm. I certainly hope all you east coast folks & New Yorkers are safe & sound, and send all my good wishes!
A notable sighting today for a couple of reasons. Petra Ecclsestone is saying her 'I Dos' today in Italy (as you do), and sisters Beatrice and Eugenie were invited with their mother Sarah. The location of the nuptials is the very same castle outside Rome where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmens were married.
The big rehearsal dinner was held last night in Rome, and check out this photo of Beatrice as she was snapped laeving her hotel. She looks terrific in a blue twinkling tulle dress we have seen on the site before. She wore Elie Saab, the very

Shopping Spot: Buy 12 Street by Cynthia Vincent blush ruffle maxi dress online as seen on Pippa Middleton out & about in London on August 22nd.
More Street Chic, this time we have the most famous sister in the world right now (or is she the most famous sister-in-law in the world?) as Pippa Middleton was snapped out and about earlier this week. She is quite enjoyable to cover as her choices are usually affordable.. much of it High Street. If I had one complaint, it would be that everything she wears has a limited shelf life (ie. it sells out!).
Pippa enjoyed her walk to the grocery store in a blush maxi dress with ruffle hem. This is Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, and there IS online availability! This is a simple but effective look, and while there may not be too many beach evenings in our near future, this is a fabulous holiday dress as well.

Spot: Stewart Parvin ivory silk wedding gown as seen on Zara Phillips at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh.
Zara Phillips married her rugby player Mike Tindall at a private ceremony with friends and family in Edinburgh today, and this is one bride who made it simple and elegant!
She looked lovely in an ivory dress custom made by the Queen's couturier Stewart Parvin, and check out some close-upe below. Her hair in a classic updo, and a gorgeous tulle veil, the Greek Key tiara borrowed from her mother Princess Anne.
We can just let these lovely photos speak for themselves - Kate Middleton (who I should start calling Princess Catherine!) in

Shopping Spot: Buy Alice & Olivia blue & white dress online as seen on Zara Phillips enjoying cocktails aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia on the eve of her wedding in Edinburgh on July 29th.
I know all weddings are supposed to be happy occasions, but this is one I would love to see more of.. a second Royal wedding in three months, what a treat!
Of course I'm talking about Zara Phillips, who has married her rugby player finance Mike Tondall at Edinburgh's Canongate Kirk (the first Royal Wedding in Scotland since 1992). This is a couple that has looked rock solid for years.. no airs and graces, they have also been able to keep their private life quiet. Zara is probably my favourite royal - not for fashion reasons, but for the reasons above!
The couple enjoyed cocktails aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia on the eve of their wedding, and Zara looked

Spot: Jenny Packham & Alexander McQueen dresses as seen on Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge during the Royal Tour 2011 in Los Angeles on July 9th.
A day in the fashion life of Kate Middleton here, and you knew these had to be major dresses! This was the Royal Couple's first visit to Los Angeles, as well as Kate's first ever visit to the States, and as usual she hit a home run.
For the daytime activities, the couple hosted host The Foundation Polo Challenge at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club (which included William playing in the match, and doing very well). Kate wore a lovely floral print dress by Jenny Packham, from the Spring/Summer 2011 runway. Simple and elegant has become her signature style.

Goodness, we have a theme emerging today.. what do Kate Middleton, Kelly Ripa, and Matches Fashion all have in common..? Well, Kelly wore a fabulous blue & white DVF dress on 'Live with Regis & Kelly' yesterday that you can buy online at Matches.. and now Kate Middleton had the same idea (ok, it wasn't the "same" idea.. it was just a good idea!).
As you know, the Royals arrived in Los Angeles yesterday, with the city eagerly anticipating this historical visit! A reception was arranged in their honour at the British Consulate, with notable guests including David Beckham & Stephen Fry.
Now I have an exclusive here.. as regular readers know, I had the pleasure of sitting very near the Beckhams at a little breakfast nook a few weeks ago in Beverly Hills (David, Victoria and the kids).. and couldn't help but hear the kids chatting

Shopping Spot: Buy Roksanda Ilincic light grey Peridot dress online as seen on Kate Middleton arriving at LAX International Airport in Los Angeles on July 8th.
Well, well, well.. a dress just seen on Kate Middleton that you can buy online! Check out the lovely Duchess of Cambridge as she was snapped arriving in Los Angeles today, after a very successful visit to Canada.
William & Kate wowed Canadians (and the Canadian press) with their warmth and friendliness, as they veered off to greet all the well-wishers at every stop. I'm guessing the protocol will be a bit more formal for this 3-day visit to California, and no doubt the hottest ticket in town is the BAFTA event in Los Angeles on Saturday night!
Back to Kate's fashion.. she arrivied at LAX wearing this Roksnada Ilincic

Spot: Armani Prive off-shoulder silk duchesse wedding gown worn by Charlene Wittstock at her Royal Wedding to Prince Albert II of Monaco at Prince's Palace Monte Carlo.
I love a good wedding as much as the next person, and this is one of the most beautiful bridal gowns I have ever seen!
As you know, Charlene Wittstock married Prince Albert of Monaco in a not-so-intimate religious ceremony on Saturday, and she was definitely a stunning bride. But.. ummm... have you read the stories?? It now comes out that Charlene may have tried to escape the wedding not once but THREE times (L'Express was first to break the news that she had tried to do a runner the week before the wedding!). Now common sense dictates that stories like this will sell papers, and we shouldn't believe everything we read. But today... it was officially confirmed that Prince Albert will undergo a paternity test. His third. Nice.

Spot: Erdem blue lace dress as seen on Kate Middleton attending a morning pray service at Champlain Harbour Station on July 3rd.
Another day, another fashion moment brought to you by the lovely Kate Middleton on this Day 4 of the Royal Tour 2011 in Canada, and you won't find a better candidate for a "Get the Look" piece!
First of all, we all want to know - what is she wearing? The answer is Erdem, and this doesn't come as a real surprise as she already wore a navy lace dress from the designer's Resort 2012 collection when she arrived in Ottawa (Day 1). I read somewhere that her dress had already sold out by the time they arrived in Canada.. with all due respect, it's hard to sell out a dress that isn't yet for sale!
The happy couple took a boat ride from Montreal to Quebec City today, and here they are attending a morning
