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.
With graphic black-and-white outfits making a strong appearance at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas this week, we’re thrilled to see some color contrast in the mix thanks to Selena Gomez in (Dolce & Gabbana), Ashley Benson, and Michelle Monaghan (in Roksanda Ilincic). The citrus-y hue was popular last year when Pantone named it the Color of 2012 (a title emerald green has claimed for 2013), and it’s an anything-but-subtle look you can try, too. Bright and bold, tangerine looks best worn in solid blocks. Stick to a classic silhouette and experiment with fun, high-contrast accessories for day or accent with basic black for a chic evening look.

Oxblood is the color of the season, and Bella Heathcote knows it! The actress accessorized her bordeaux ruffled Roksanda Ilincic dress with matching Christian Louboutin heels at last night’s New York premiere of Killing Them Softly, and the gold accents and laser-cut detail on the pumps were a fun finishing touch to her look. Would you wear them? If so, the designer “Indies” style is available at neimanmarcus.com for $995.

Pippa Middleton’s wardrobe worked overtime yesterday! The royal-in-law kept busy in London promoting her new party-planning book Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends (pre-order it for $50 on amazon.com), hopping from book store to book party. She made four official appearances in all, wearing a different look each time, and her superfans on pippa-middleton.co.uk were quick to identify each look. From left, she wore a Markus Lupfer jersey and brocade dress, a Roksanda Ilincic wool-crepe style, a Stella McCartney mixed-fabric sheath, and a Paper London patchwork tunic.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, had one busy day yesterday! Not only did she cheer on Princess Zara at the royal’s first Olympic equestrian showing, but she then attended the Creative Industries Reception in London (sans Prince William) to celebrate Brits in the arts. For the latter, she wore a lavender Roksanda Ilincic shift—a dress we first saw her in last July during her Canadian tour. She added a fresh touch to her look, though, by pinning her long locks into voluminous, neck-skimming twist. Aquamarine earrings and dove grey suede heels completed the ensemble. “I think she’s a wonderful ambassador of British fashion,” Ilincic told InStyle.com earlier this year. We couldn’t agree more!

Roksanda Ilincic’s “Izumi” dress is a go-to dress this season. Princess Beatrice, 23, paired the British designer’s piece with sky-high cobalt Nicholas Kirkwood platforms and a pink Anya Hindmarch clutch at the 2012 Britain Creates party in London in June. The next week, Marisa Tomei took the style for a spin during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris, where the 47-year-old actress matched the shift’s electric cuffs to her Aperlai peep-toes. “Women should follow their heart and feel comfortable in what they’re wearing,” Ilincic, shown inset, told InStyle.com. “You should feel empowered, and always add a personal touch—your own personality to the garment.” It looks like these ladies did just that! The style is available $1,300 at farfetch.com. Plus, see more stars who love Roksanda Ilincic in the gallery.
