Princess Charlotte has been a style icon since she first stepped out in her signature babydoll frocks and Mary Janes, but at the ripe age of three, she’s now officially a beauty icon, too. The royal tot showed up at little brother Prince Louis’s christening on Monday sporting an entirely new look that I, a full-grown adult, want to copy.
She traded her usual half-up style for a middle-parted one, holding her hair off her face with a blue headband featuring bow detailing. The dainty accessory paired perfectly with her blue floral dress, and she finished the look with a pair of white socks and matching blue shoes. The little princess entered the event hand-in-hand with dad Prince William (awww), who helped her navigate how to properly greet the members of the clergy. Per usual, she had the classic “princess wave” on lock.
Princess Charlotte wasn’t the only one to bring her beauty A-game to Monday’s event. Meghan Markle attended in a stunning green Ralph Lauren dress and coordinating fascinator, and she tied her hair into the usual low bun. She kept her makeup neutral and, as always, let her freckles shine through. Kate Middleton, meanwhile, matched her outfit to Prince Louis’s christening gown (the same one that Princess Charlotte and Prince George wore for their big debuts in the Church of England) in a white Alexander McQueen dress and fascinator. She donned similar white McQueen looks for George’s and Charlotte’s christenings, so while the style is hardly a surprise, it’s gorgeous nonetheless. She pinned her hair into a half-up, half-down style with subtly blown-out barrel curls to reveal a set of crystal drop earrings, and kept her makeup simple with a swipe of blush and black eyeliner.
Sure, sure, the day was technically all about Prince Louis (and he looked adorable, of course), but the ladies of Buckingham Palace didn’t disappoint in serving show-stealing looks.
