Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped in for Queen Elizabeth II at a recent garden party at Buckingham Palace, and her ensemble reminds us of another young aristocratic Brit: Eloise Bridgerton. On May 25, the Duchess of Cambridge rewore a custom dress made by her private dressmaker, featuring buttons, a high neck, and long sleeves that would work perfectly in Regency-era London. The Duchess accessorized the garment, which she previously wore in March 2019, with a floral fascinator, plain heels, a clutch purse, and matching earrings, all in mint green.
This isn’t the first time Middleton has worn a preloved item to a garden party this month. In keeping with her dedication to sustainable fashion, she recently stepped out in a coral dress accessorized with a vintage clutch on May 19.

While Kate Middleton is certainly not seeking a suitor—she has been married to Prince William since 2011—you cannot say that she does not look ready to promenade in this look.
All this to say, the pale pastel looks great on brunette Middleton, which might be why the shade is also a favorite of the most sarcastic Bridgerton daughter. To compare, here is Eloise in mint green at a garden party in season two of the Netflix series.

Last night saw the premiere of Perfect Strangers, Netflix’s first-ever Arabic original film starring Egyptian actor Mona Zaki, and six noteworthy stars from the region. For the glamorous evening celebration at the Bulgari Yacht Club in Dubai, Zaki walked the red carpet looking every bit the movie star in a dress championing local talent.

Styled by Cedric Haddad, the Egyptian actor chose a dress from Lebanese designer Sandy Nour’s eponymous label. The black velvet number featured a figure-hugging silhouette, an off-shoulder neckline, full-length sleeves, and a thigh-high slit. More daring than most of Zaki’s usual looks, the sultry gown was paired with dazzling Aquazzura heels, and a clutch from another much-loved Lebanese label, Sarah’s Bag.

Zaki’s glam look for the night was a lesson in how one can never go wrong with classics. Adding to the bold sophistication of the look, the actor’s hair channeled Old Hollywood romance, styled in a slick side part with soft waves by Rafi Fazaa. She also sported a glossy red lip and a cat-eye liner, complemented by glowy skin and peach-toned blushed cheeks.

The outdoor premiere was also attended by Zaki’s co-stars: Lebanese actor-director Nadine Labaki, Jordanian-Egyptian actor Eyad Nassar, and Lebanese actors Diamand Abou Abboud, Georges Khabbaz, Adel Karam, and Fouad Yammine. Ahead of the screening, the stars caught up with Vogue Arabia to divulge details about the making of the film and the challenges they faced.

Perfect Strangers, titled As-hab wala A’az in Arabic, is the regional adaptation of the hit Italian film of the same name, and is all set to release on Netflix on January 20, 2022. The thrilling drama marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Wissam Smayra.

Causing a buzz with a showcase of unique outfit ensembles curated by Patricia Fields and Marylin Fitoussi, the second season of the Netflix show was no stranger to international fashion designers and haute couture favorites. Emily’s sartorial wardrobe has evolved this season into a colorful palette composed of runway-ready pieces from Valentino, to fashion staples by none other than Elie Saab.
In the first episode of season two, titled “Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi?”, the protagonist champions a boxy green short-sleeved jacket from Elie Saab’s Spring 2021 read- to wear collection. Paired with a Versace multicolored ribbed knit polo and a vintage Thierry Mugler checkered skirt, Cooper’s outfit gave us a taste of the season’s style orchestra.

Besides Elie Saab, other well-known designers like Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier, Mary Katrantzou, La Perla, Vassilis Zoulias and Rianna + Nina have also got their fair share of screen time in the latest season of the feel-good show.

Not only did their outfits catch the eye of fans, they also were noted by online retailers, who were quick to partner with Netflix to feature looks and pieces from the show curated by luxury brands for a fun online shopping experience. Most importantly, one of the themes embraced by the wardrobe choices this season is sustainability, with couture looks offered by the Renaissance Project, run by a Paris-non profit organization that recycles cast-off outfits.

The Summer Party Looks You Need to Invest in Now

The Summer Party Looks You Need to Invest in Now

From Y2K-inspired, low-rise miniskirts and fluorescent-neon flares to the rise of debutante dressing (thanks to Netflix’s Bridgerton), here are five ways to dress for a scorching soiree, via the SS21 catwalks.

Summer is around the corner and, with vaccines being rolled out globally, we’re poised to amp up our wardrobes and safely dance the night away (insert dancing flamenco dress emoji).
In 2019, ‘hot girl summer’ went viral thanks to rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s hit single of the same name. Fast forward to today, the sentiment behind the statement still stands, but after more than a year of hibernating in our hoodies, it certainly does not feel the same. The solution? Finding a steady balance between the sensuous and exuberant, with practical ease fit for our times.
Whether it’s layering a luxe silk bralette beneath a sports jacket, towering platform boots with a tough edge, or balloon-sleeved #Regencycore minidresses to effortlessly transition from a day of al fresco frolics to an evening on the dancefloor – here’s the Vogue guide to getting soiree-ready this summer.
A skirt for the summer? Make mine a mini

The miniskirt has been a trusted wardrobe mainstay since its huge popularity in the ’60s. Decades on, it still exudes boldness and remains a symbol of defiance. Opt for a Y2K-inspired textured low-rise ultra-mini to match your accessories, as seen at Miu Miu, or for a day-to-evening take, try pairing a multicolored pleated Chopova Lowena version with printed tights and a crisp white shirt.
If your party pants don’t demand attention, you’re doing it wrong

Who said trousers were boring? It’s high time to spice up your pants game for the dancefloor. Whether it’s a wide-legged pair in fluorescent pink as at Chanel or Maximilian’s immaculately tailored cuts (we’ll take ours in tangerine), the ability to move seamlessly while making a strong statement is absolutely essential. If you’re feeling particularly daring, try a sequinned pair with a matching short sleeve jacket, as per Louis Vuitton.
The higher the platform, the closer to heaven

Strut into the post-pandemic era with sky-high conviction by wearing this season’s biggest footwear trend: platforms. From the mesmerizing thigh-high metallic pairs at Valentino haute couture and Rick Owens, to a textured ode to ’70s glamour with Harris Reed x Roker, an entire look can be elevated (quite literally) with a striking pair, even if simply wearing with boot-cut flared jeans and a white T-shirt.
E-girl debutante dressing for the win

With Instagram and TikTok all over the trend, lest we forget the Bridgerton phenomena from earlier in the year, it’s safe to say that #Regencycore is undoubtedly a popular look of the summer. Whether it’s a floor-length gown in the lightest of chiffons as seen at Valentino and Yuhan Wang or a minidress with voluminous sleeves for dramatic effect à la Khaite and Loewe, live out your period drama fantasy IRL in a Regency-era inspired frock.
A summer coat isn’t so frivolous after all

Inevitably, socializing and dining will still predominantly need to be outdoors, therefore keeping warm in the evening is of utmost importance. How best to effectively do so? That’s right, a light coat for the summer. If you’re channeling a Regency-inspired aesthetic opt for Simone Rocha’s sheer trench in embroidered tulle, or set the tone for a spicy night out in a light, printed-silk Prada opera coat. For optimal snuggliness, Fendi’s oversized quilted version, reminiscent of a luxe duvet, will be sure to do the trick.
