Red Prada Coat 1997

My favorite coat of all time..  Would love to get my hands on an original.  These pics look like they could have been taken yesterday.  The collage was from Ultimate Carolyn which sadly is no longer up.  Hope you like the post.

Update: I couldn't remember exactly when these were taken.  Was reminded by a CBK fan that these were taken only a few months after they were married.  They were in "Vanity Fair several years ago, and the caption said January 1997.  To be specific, I believe these photos were taken late January 1997 (maybe the 28th)".

So thanks for the info CBK fan! :)

Her look is so timeless. All her looks would still look wonderful today. The red coat is one of my favs. :)

I agree with you. If I were ever lucky enough, I would wear that coat tomorrow and it would still look great today! I'd wear it with the jeans, hat, and shoes too. :) also one of my favs.

OMG, thank you so much for this blog. I loved, loved, loved "Ultimate Carolyn" and was so sad when it sort of sank. I really missed talking about the incredible CBK who is absolutely irreplaceable. Her style, the way she carried herself and her quest for privacy. Pictures of them still have the ability to break my heart. Keep up the good work, lets not forget her.

Thank you so much for you kind words and I am very happy you enjoy the blog. I too was so sad when UC went down and also think we should keep her memory alive. :)

Me ha encantado el blog que has hecho sobre Caroline, a mi me gustaba mucho esta mujer, estaba viva, amaba, sentía, se apasionaba...para mi es un icono de moda, sin ser guapisima tenía un estimo muy marcado inconfundible, por eso John John se casó con ella eligiéndola entre muchas otras.
