Prince George’s 10 Best Fashion Moments
July 23, 2013
At just a day old, the prince was presented to the world in a simple shawl for his first official photo op. Shortly after, he demonstrated hefty fashion clout: The Aden + Anais swaddle blanket in which he departed the hospital—packaged in a set of four for $49—sold out in the United Kingdom within hours.

In what may have been his first bespoke outfit, the prince wore a lace-and-satin christening gown commissioned by his great-grandmother and sewn by her personal team of dressmakers. Young George was the second royal offspring to be christened in the robe, a replica of the elaborate but now-fragile gown worn by generations of British royal babes since 1841.

On Day 1 of his first official overseas trip, to New Zealand and then Australia, George seemingly played it safe but classic with an all-neutral outfit. The cheeky little surprise, just covered up by his mum’s hand: a tiny Queens Guard stitched on the front of his sweater.

Prince George mingled with his future subjects at an event in Wellington, New Zealand, in eat-it-up-yummy baby garb: a sailboat-smocked romper over a Peter Pan–collared shirt, capped off with navy blue Early Days Alex pre-walker shoes.

Upon arrival in Sydney, Australia, on Day 10 of the tour, George immediately set off a frenzy for this smocked cotton Les Petites Abeilles romper with hand-embroidered sailboats.

Far more low-key for a zoo visit, George paired a little-man striped shirt with blue cargo shorts (both from Rachel Riley), while his dad provided some attractive pattern-clashing.

For his arrival later that same day in Canberra, George went totally tonal, with a stitched cardigan–and-shorts ensemble. Both, again, were from Rachel Riley—possibly a favored haberdasher of the young royal?

The young prince ended the royal tour just as he started it: in some seriously snappy duds. His style, though simple, shows undeniable flair, down to his signature accessory—the Early Days pre-walkers.

The toddling baby (here getting an assist from his mother at a polo match) in striped overalls (seen in the previous slide too). The Neck & Neck design sold out shortly thereafter.

Closing in on his first birthday—and apparently taking steps on his own—George went with striped overalls again, for a visit to the “Sensational Butterflies” exhibit at the Natural History Museum in London. George appeared to put his own stamp on the Petit Bateau dungarees (perhaps aiming to set a trend among the sippy-cup set): His straps seemed to be worn inside out.
