Catherine at reopening of Natural History Museum’s great hall

This evening Duchess Kate attended the reopening of the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall (featuring a new blue whale skeleton) in a pale blue Preen dress.

Catherine’s dress was very simple: it features a scoop neckline, t-shirt sleeves, exposed back zip, thick waistband and then full, pleated skirt, which falls below the knee. The sold out ‘Evelyn’ dress cost £637.

Made from a blend of polyesters, I thought this dress looked cheap on Kate…

She teamed it with a new pair of Prada heels, the label’s ‘scalloped suede sandals’ in plum/burgundy; she has the same in black, worn in Bhutan.

These feature three wavy straps across the toe, bridge of the foot and ankle, with a towering 4.5 inch heel.

Kate accessorised the look with a u-shaped clutch in burgundy with gold trim, perhaps a different version of the ‘Jem’ bag by Jerome C. Rousseau. The clasp is the same, as is the same – all we need is to see the makers badge on the other side to confirm!

The purple and pale blue mix was an unusual choice, but I think it worked; shame about the look of the dress.

Her geometric earrings by Cassandra Goad, called ‘Temple of Heaven’ completed the outfit.
