We’ve been celebrating all things British this whole year — the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics and the Spice Girls’ reunion at its Closing Ceremony, Charles Dicken’s 200th birthday, The Beatles’ 50th anniversary and Brit fashion from McQueen to Stella McCartney, just to name a few.
But our Brit obsession has still not reached fever pitch, nope. Not till next month when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make their royal presence right here in Singapore! As part of a tour to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Prince William and Kate Middleton will be here for three days from Sept 11 to 13. As we eagerly awaits the arrival of the duchess and her wardrobe (no offence, Will!), the Glam Asia office is abuzz e-shopping for some Kate-inspired looks in honour of her effortless couture-meets-high-street style. All in the name of work, of course!
