‘My Fair Lady’ for one day. Kate Middleton’s look at Ascot


The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a style that recalled Audrey Hepburn in the 1964 film and sounded to the rhythm of ‘The Ascot Gavotte’

A song (The Ascot Gavotte), an actress (Audrey Hepburn) and a stage (the Ascot Racecourse). Yes, we outlined a scene from My Fair Lady, but not any scene but the one that contains the most iconic styling of George Cukor’s film. That test of fire that decides the outcome of the story: whether the florist Eliza is prepared or not to develop among the high society of London.

This film reference is justified if we talk about the look of the Duchess of Cambridge and the environment in which, incidentally, has taken place. To attend the Royal Ascot, the event held in this United Kingdom Hippodrome as every June and summons the finest of British society, including royal family and nobility, chose a dress with all the necessary elements to become Right on My Fair Lady.

White from head to toe – and never better, because the headdress claimed its share of prominence – high collar and endless lace lace. Alexander McQueen’s suit carried us to 1964 when Hepburn, Rex Harrison and company sang and danced in wonderful costumes. Although with obvious differences, from the length of the dress to the silhouette or the exaggerated flourishes of the original design, it is impossible not to establish a comparative.

Prince William’s wife unknowingly performed an aesthetic reinvention exercise by adapting a styling conceived for fiction more than 50 years ago to the reality of 2017. While elegance is the strong asset and point of attachment of both sets, Baroque and profusion of details is the big difference.

Middleton’s model is the simple and millenical (re) interpretation of Audrey’s wardrobe, without so much pomposity or overhead. In fact, the complements reduce their size and presence: a beige salons of Gianvitto Rossi and a handbag of Etui. Overall, an outfit very similar to the one he wore for his debut in 2016 and signed Dolce & Gabbana.
