With baby fever taking over the United Kingdom (and the world, for that matter), let us not forget about the other Princess who knows how to make a powerful fashion statement: Princess Beatrice. Ever since her “hat moment” at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s nuptials two years ago, she’s upped her style game by hiring a stylist (that would be Charlie Anderson) and wearing some of the biggest names in British fashion (like Roksanda Ilincic and Jonathan Saunders). Click through to see what she’s been up to.
Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge has been busy lately—a baby on the way isn’t stopping her!—so, we’re doing some style prep for Princess’s growing bump by picking out a look we’d like to see her wear for her next outing. With Kate experimenting with prints this week in an Erdem design, we’ve tasked ourselves with finding pieces with fun patterns to complement her changing figure. Scroll down to see our three picks.
The Erdem floral shift dress she wore to help launch a new school counseling program at the Willows Primary School in Manchester, England.
A TWO-TONE PRINTED WRAP DRESS
Diane von Furstenberg‘s abstract printed dress ($365 at dvf.com) in her classic wrap style is sure to flatter her figure. Plus, the Duchess has a proven herself fan of DVF by wearing her dresses and clutches for past occasions.

It’s a print fit for a princess! Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has been sticking to solid colors throughout her pregnancy, but with her baby bump blossoming, she’s venturing back to wearing her favorite pre-pregnancy print: Florals. Her new flower-covered pick—maternity-edition—is Erdem‘s shift covered in the label’s signature Visconti flowers, which she wore to help launch a new school counseling program at the Willows Primary School in Manchester, England. And you can nab the look, too. The dress is available for $1,514 on matchesfashion.com or for $1,880 at neimanmarcus.com.

Kerry Washington stuns us week after week as the woman in the middle of it all on Scandal, and now she’s starring in something new—a fashion feature for InStyle‘s new May issue! Inside, she’s as bold as her character, modeling looks revamped with bold color by designer labels like Dolce & Gabbana (shown above), Erdem, Peter Som, and Fendi. And it’s daring style the actress adopts in her off-duty life, too. “I need to challenge myself,” Washington says. “Whether it’s fashion or life, I like to go for it. As long as I feel good about what I’m wearing, it doesn’t matter if so-and-so calls it ugly.” And that’s not all—be sure to read the full interview and see more photographs when the new Emily Blunt-covered May issue hits newsstands Friday, April 19—or download it to your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet.

Up-and-coming UK designer Erdem Moralioglu is really making an impression on some of Hollywood’s most stylish red carpet fixtures! Marion Cotillard wore one of his Pre-Fall 2013 designs for her appearance on Conan, Ashley Greene wore his Vivienne dress for a Breaking Dawn: Part 2 screening in South Africa, Rosamund Pike wore an asymmetrical dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection for the Tokyo premiere of her film Jack Reacher, and, most recently, Sienna Miller wore his youthful two-piece design at the Golden Globes, saying, “He’s really the hottest young designer coming out of England.” Moralioglu was born in Montreal in 1977 to a Turkish father and British mother, and spent his childhood split between his hometown and Birmingham, England. “When you see your clothes out of the context of a show, it’s really exciting,” Moralioglu has said of seeing his looks on the red carpet. And let’s not forget one of the designer’s earliest fans—The Duchess herself. What do you think of his work?
