Kate's week kicked off with a red carpet event. On Sunday, she joined Prince William for her first British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards ceremony at Royal Albert Hall in London. She looked glamorous in an off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown. Click to read more >
On Valentine's day, the Duchess had a 'date' with the RAF Air Cadets in Wittering. Her sartorial choice was on point, sporting a new red military inspired blazer by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini for the occasion. Click to read more >

Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
MIX & MATCH
Kate's outfits are impeccable but can sometimes need a little tweaking for us "normal folk" to adapt for daily wear. In this occasional segment, I show how you can create everyday repliKate outfits by mixing and matching key pieces with your wardrobe essentials!
Kate's bespoke Alexander McQueen violet jacquard gown was a big hit with fans when she stepped out on the BAFTAs red carpet. Unfortunately most of us rarely have a need for a formal gown so below I've taken a casual approach to the dress and teamed it with some of Kate's beloved accessories plus repliKates.
IF I WERE KATE'S STYLIST
I'm sure many of you would agree that having the role of Kate's stylist would be the best job in the world! Seriously, how much fun would it be to help Kate shop and experiment with new looks!? In this occasional segment, I showcase my daydream outfits for the Duchess!
Following Kate's Air Cadets engagement there was a public outcry for the Duchess to ditch her skin-tight jeans when attending official engagements. Whilst I personally love skinny jeans and jeggings (I own over 10 pairs) I would love to see the Duchess polish-up her "smart-casual" style. The beautiful Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini blazer she debuted this week would have looked more refined if it were paired with classic slim trousers and sophisticated loafers. I'm obsessed with scarfs and I think this outfit desperately needed one to help soften the contrast between the red and black. What do you think?

Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. This week, many of the new season pieces from Hobbs London caught my eye. I came across these Duchess-worthy styles by the British fashion retailer:
