With 2021 over, it’s time to look back and remember the fashion moments that the world of royalty has given us this year. With the permission of Letizia, of course, of which we already analyzed a few days ago everything novelty from your closet that he had shown us in his public appearances. From Kate Middleton, through Queen Máxima, Victoria of Sweden or Carlota CasiraghiThese are the 10 most commented looks of the royals in these twelve months.
There are them for all tastes, gala, wedding or more casual, all of them belonging to the public appearances of their owners, and stand out for different reasons. Queens and princesses have amply explored trends, including some very daring like the cut-out effect, the color blocks or the pajamas style. We have seen a lot of haute couture firms, including a Spanish one, dotted with low cost touches and the odd memory of the past. Come and see the winners of this fashion list.
Kate’s Hollywood style with a nod to Lady Di
At the top one of the list we have to place, without a doubt, the Duchess of Cambridge with her stunning gold dress by Jenny Packham. It was the hit of the London premiere of the new James Bond film, in September, and it made her the real and only star of the evening. Long, with a V neckline, draped at the waist and dotted with sequins, it was a modification made for her of a British design to which a long cape was added. With this look, Kate wanted to honor the deceased Lady Di, who wore a gold dress of a similar cut to the premiere of another installment of the 007 saga in 1985. In his case it was a creation of Bruce Oldfield.
Máxima and her most original dress
2021 has been a year with many successes for the Dutch queen and the odd stumble. But there is no doubt that his most surprising look, praised by many and criticized by some, has been this. In November, Máxima attended a concert in Oslo with a design by one of her favorite creators, Claes Iversen, with whom she was pointing to the ‘cut-out’ trend. His blue dress with gold-trimmed holes, belonging to the Couture 2019 collection, is your riskiest bet, although we have to say that her skin was not visible, since the garment had a nude lining. She combined it with golden platform sandals by Gianvito Rossi and discreet jewels, some diamond earrings …
The innovative look of Loewe de Rania
Always dancing between tradition and cutting-edge trends, the Hashemite queen gave a master class lesson in style last November while visiting an exhibition in Jordan. Chose a two pieces from the Spanish firm Loewe, from the autumn-winter 2021/2022 collection, made up of white culotte-cut leather pants and an asymmetric XL tunic-style shirt in Klein blue with a bow at the neck. The stillettos in the same shade of Dior and a yellow Loewe bag completed her outfit.
Letizia style polka dots from Mary from Denmark
Among the many similarities between the style of the Crown Princess and our Queen is her passion for moles. The dress that Mary wore in May at the confirmation of her son, Prince Christian, well could be part of Letizia’s closet… Blue with small white dots, puffed sleeves and a stand-up collar, it was from the Iris & Ink firm and she combined it with nude pumps and a floral headdress with her hair gathered in a low ponytail.
The most ideal beret of Sophie Rhys-Jones
The last look we have seen this year from the wife of Prince Edward of England has made us fall in love. He took it on December 25 to attend the Christmas Mass at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle and, despite its sobriety, it added a detail that made it very chic. Sophie was wearing a navy blue, fitted, lady-cut coat from Loewe (the Spanish firm has swept among the royals this year) in wool and cashmere for 3,200 euros and repeated some pumps in the same color as Jimmy Choo. To break the monochrome, she opted for a leopard beret from Jane Taylor London. As surprising as it is ideal.
Victoria from Sweden signs up for pajama style
We are not used to seeing the crown princess with this style, but it has been a success. True to the signature low cost signature of its country, H&M, at the beginning of December Victoria premiered a set from the Circular Desing Story collection before it was put on sale, thus becoming its best ambassador. It consisted of a kimono-style blazer with tie at the waist and palazzo pants, both sequined with large silver polka dots; a deluxe pajamas. Days before, actress Hailee Stenfield had worn a jumpsuit of the same pattern, belonging to the same collection.
Pleated and color block for Matilde
Although the Belgian queen is quite classic when it comes to dressingShe also has somewhat more daring clothes in her closet. This year she has opted for the fuchsia-purple duo and the origami effect with this beautiful Natan Couture dress that she has worn twice. With a midi length, pleated fabric and accordion sleeves, she chose it for a meeting with the Secretary General of the United Nations in May and also for the portrait officer with whom he celebrated his 22nd anniversary wedding with king Felipe.
Carolina de Monaco, in lace jumpsuit
On September 23, acting as first lady in the absence of Charlène, the princess accompanied her brother Alberto to the Planetary Health Gala, in Monte Carlo. It was Chanel Haute Couture, how could it be otherwise, but this time it was not a dress, but an original lace jumpsuit with a flower print. The top with a subtle opening at the neckline and the bottom is palazzo cut and in two layers, which made it look like a dress. We loved that trompe l’oeil effect!
Marie-Chantal Miller’s guest look
On October 23, in Athens, Philippos of Greece and Nina Flohr got married, a link in which noted for its elegance Marie-Chantal. Prince Paul’s wife opted for a classic and minimal design from the London-based Greek-born designer Mary Katrantzou. In stone gray, long to the feet, with plant embroidery on the neck and slightly puffed sleeves on the shoulder, the married couple’s sister-in-law added a Elie Saab Gold Mini Belt. As you can see, Letizia is not the only one who is obsessed with this accessory to mark the size …
Carlota Casiraghi’s golden coat with which she broke the rules
Faithful heir to her mother’s style, Carolina’s daughter surprised us in the Monaco National Day celebrations with a style that we did not expect. While Carolina and the rest of the women in the family opted for sober looks and in neutral colors, Carlota appeared with a spectacular coat-dress in quilted fabric, Perkins collar and gold color signed by Chanel. On the feet, a sensible heel slingback also from the French house, as well as the bag.
