Candy pink was the palette of choice for The Duchess of Cambridge today at Trooping the Colour.
The dress featured pleats to the neck, long sleeves, ruffles at the waist and a pleated flare skirt. It largely resembles this piece by Alexander McQueen (thanks to Anna of Duchess of Cambridge blog), made of silk, cotton and wool.
Sleeves were added, and I suspect Kate had the skirt lengthened too, in addition to the pleats.
Kate’s hat matched the candy-tone perfectly and was a sinamay base with folded material to emulate flowers. It is likely a Jane Taylor piece, the Duchess’ go-to milliner for bespoke pieces.
I quite liked the style of both the dress and hat, but am not a fan of this bright colour.
The clutch was noticed on the first balcony appearance, as The Queen returned to the Palace. It was the cream textured fold-over piece from Etui.
Catherine was wearing a pair of Her Majesty’s earrings for the occasion, too; they have been seen before at the Diplomatic Corps reception.
Because of the nature of Trooping, we don’t get to see footwear, but I suspect pale nude coloured to match the clutch. That puts us in LK Bennett Flora/Fern territory, or perhaps the Russell & Bromley worn to Princess Charlotte’s christening.
Lastly, a quick look at Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s appearance on the balcony.
Replikate the look:
