Royal Fashion Minute: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Catherine Visit North America--Day One & Two

Oh Canada!!

Maple Leaf Duchess: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge in creme Reiss dress and Sylvia Fletcher Fascinator, Day Two, Canada Visit

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge--Prince William and Catherine--are on their North American Tour and well, being that they are THE MOST WATCHED, Most Celebrated, Most Photographed Couple in the entire World (sorry Brangelina!), it has been MADNESS ever since they stepped up in this Hemisphere last week.

Welcome To Canada

Their first stop is Canada and then they will move onto Los Angeles where they will be feted by all of Hollywood's glitterati and the Hollywood elite of UK descent (there are many! Hello! Can you say "the Osbournes?" They have a very busy schedule (Who's paying for all this by the way? The British population? Just wonderin'...), and of course, EVERYONE is just interested (and by "everyone" I mean ME!) in what the Duchess is wearing. Let's take a look:

Day One: Ottawa Arrival and Welcome

Duchess of Cambridge wears Erdem to arrive in Canada

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Catherine
, arrived in Canada to much fanfare and "Royal Love". "Chic Catherine" didn't disappoint as she got off the plane wearing a navy blue lace sheath dress with 3/4 sleeves from...

British brand Erdem and from their Resort 2012, designed by Erdem Moralioglu. Erdem is a Canadian who designs in England. Now that is a clever twist!

Day Two: Citizenship Celebration

For Day Two, which happened to be "Canada Day", Catherine did a "recycle", by wearing a creme side cascade-ruffled dress from the British brand Reiss, which she had worn before...

I wonder where we have seen this dress before?

Oh yes, it was the dress she wore for the Official Engagement Portrait photographed by Mario Testino.

Besides that fabulous red Maple Leaf Fascinator from Sylvia Fletcher, her purse was just as unique and DIVINE...

It was a Anya Hindmarch fan clutch, in case you were wondering.

Day Two: Outfit Change for Canada Day Evening Celebrations

Later that day, in the evening, for the Canada Day Evening Celebrations, Catherine changed into this chic little jersey number above.

Catherine wore a purple jersey center-front gathered dress from Issa London, one of her favorite brands to wear. She kept the diamond Maple Leaf brooch that she wore earlier in the day, which was reportedly lent to her by The Queen. Oh Dear! Better have security on that!

Issa London is a British-based brand headed by Brazilian Designer Daniella Helayel, in case you didn't know. Of course, she wore royal blue Issa for the Engagement Photos that went "around the world".

So far Kate....and William (sorry William, you looked good too!!) have looked smashing at every turn. A+ from me!! Can't wait for what else she packed in those Louis Vuitton trunks of hers!! ( I'm just guessing it's LV, something tells me she doesn't travel with Samsonite!)
