Get the Look: Birthday girl Kate

Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Cambridge, who turns 31 today! With a devoted husband, baby on the way and a fabulous wardrobe to boot – Kate certainly has reason to celebrate this 9th January…
Well, never ones to shy away from a celebration, here at Debenhams we’ve decided to mark the occasion with a special Kate ‘Get the Look’. Focusing on one of our favourite looks from the last year, we’ve showcased the look that Kate rocked for the Diamond Jubilee pageant this year – when she boarded the Spirit of Chartwell.
A gorgeous lady in red in a bold and beautiful Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen number, Kate certainly showed us how to get into the spirit of things through fashion. Today, we’re taking a leaf out of her style book, just for you.
First things first, you’ll need to invest in a red dress, or even a top and skirt if you prefer. From the huge choice at Debenhams, we’ve selected a stunning Red Herring design, or a jersey Planet dress – the former has the desired peplum detail, while the latter is ideal for those who preferred the long sleeved style in the original look.
Team with a statement fascinator from Hat Box, Debut bow detail clutch and the Kate-obligatory nude courts – this pair from Nine West should do the trick. To complete the look, carry a Principles by Ben de Lisi checked scarf, to shield from the mild winter chill. Add a delicate Jon Richard gold brooch and sleek droplet J by Jasper Conran earrings and, as Kate celebrates her special day, you can celebrate becoming Kate.
After all, a girl is never too old to imagine she’s a princess – if only for a day.
