    I read culottes are in. I like her shoes so much better than stilettos. High heels are still no good but at least these are less degenerating to feet and legs and hips and spine

    But today the stylist suggested the Duchess had upgraded her look ...
    [​IMG]
    The Duchess of Cambridge debuted a new blonder look today

    And following her appearance, celebrity stylist James Johnson revealed ...:eek:

    how Kate has opted for 'golden tones perfect for the autumn season',

    [​IMG]
    Speaking of her transition from her summer look, James suggested: 'It’s a much warmer style, more stylish and suited for the cold seasons.'..
    [​IMG]
    It was only last month that Kate debuted a new bouncier, shorter blow-dried style...

    At the time, James said Kate had
    transitioned
    from a more 'polished' summer look, to a more practical style with a '90s on-trend flick', and suggested that Kate appeared to be taking a leaf out of Meghan's more 'relaxed' look book. :rolleyes:

    James suggested the royal's highlighted hair was probably the result of balayage

    "Transition" :confused: ??
    Bit overdramatic isn't it Jimmy?​

    Definition of transition
    • an abrupt change in energy state or level
    • passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another :
    • a change from one form or type to another, or the process by which this happens:
    Merriam Webster

    ;)noun: balayage
    a technique for highlighting hair in which the dye is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.

    Oh I Agree !

    I just can't stand seeing the young Royals wearing stiletto heels. They seem outdated, and part of an old fetishist view of women. I think they are just not necessary and there are lots of great heels that are a bit more demure and comfortable-looking.

    Erm. I fail to see how her hair today is shorter. She has long hair. To have long hair like that takes a lot of maintenance. I do like the newer golden highlights as they are well done.

    I'm pretty sure that isn't balayge. Even the best balayge I've seen looks obvious, and usually trashy.

    Quintessentially British brands: A brief history of Dr Martens, shoes with soul

    From school shoes to work wear, street fashion to high fashion, a safe way to express rebellion or a symbol of social revolution, Dr Martens boots have become part of British culture.
    [​IMG]
    Though there are many great brands out there, there are only a handful of quintessentially British brands that have fundamentally shaped the evolution of an era.
    [​IMG]
    More than just a footprint on the winding road of fashion history, Dr Martens have helped to forge a range of British subcultures, permeating from the niche, to the mainstream.

    Introduced to the country more than 50 years ago, Doc Martens have transformed Britain with decades of musical and style-based movements. ;)

    The company, so entwined with Britain and Britishness, actually has its origins in post-war Germany.

    In 1945, a 25-year-old soldier called Dr Klaus Maertens hurt his foot while skiing. He invented a special air-cushioned sole,

    The History
    ...Despite having made its show-biz debut in the late ’60s, Dr. Martens had actually been around since the 1940s, when a doctor named Klaus Maertens...
    ...enlisted in the German army in his twenties, during which he broke his foot skiing...
    In 1967, a man walked into a utility clothing store in the north of England,

    ...he might not have come across a shoe that would change his – and thousands of others’ – futures: the Dr. Martens boot. The man was Pete Townshend,

    The direct impact Townshend’s endorsement had on the business was instantly visible: DMs quickly became a part of the music scene’s vernacular, appearing on musicians, gig-goers, punks, goths, hippies and skinheads....
    [​IMG]
    Punks and skinheads in the 1980s were rarely seen without DMs

    What's up, Doc? The enduring appeal of Dr Martens
    In the rock opera Tommy, Elton John had to wear callipers that allowed him to move on his 4ft 6in (137cm) DMs as if he were on stilts

    Elton John kept his giant boots after wearing them in Tommy, but sold them to the maker of Dr Martens,
