I have heard that Queen bees and worker bees are born the same. Queen bees however, live exclusively on royal jelly- a bee secretion rich in proteins, sugars, amino acids, etc. As a result, the Queen bee lives 70 times longer than the average worker bee. & she gets to be Queen.
In today’s world of artistic fashion, pushing limits, racy billboards and panty flashes (well hello, Britney!), I believe that there is still something to be said about classic and iconic style. I mean, Chanel is CHANEL for a reason. It’s classic! Jackie Onassis was iconic; her big sunglasses and suits will never be forgotten. And we all know that America has been fashionably obsessed with the outfits of our First Lady, Mrs. Obama, since the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
Three years later the First Lady has yet to disappoint! Now you can find blogs and books dedicated strictly to her ensembles. I believe that America is intrigued with her sense of class, style and grace; something that’s not often found in the world of fashion magazines, runway shows or blogs. She’s the kind of style icon that has not been seen since the days of Princess Di. Until now…
Is Kate Middleton the new Princess Diana? Will she take the spotlight from America’s leading lady? I think, yes!
A modern day prince and princess story, it either makes you swoon or makes you sick (get over your jealousy already!) Either way, it has your attention. With the wedding set to take place on April 29th at Westminster Abbey, all eyes have been on Kate, and most of us like what we see. She is a lady of class and style. How could we forget the BLUE DRESS, right? An image forever imprinted in every fashion addict’s memory. The Issa dress sold out in less than 24 hours after it’s debut during their engagement announcement. Now that’s influence!
Why not take a cue from the princess to be and bring a little class to your wardrobe this spring? Whether you have your prince charming or you’re still kissing frogs trying to find him, a little style inspiration from a modern princess is a must. Her staples are classic, but her accessories are fun and range from bright coats to big hats.
PS – I can’t wait to see the gown being designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen! What do you think it will look like?
