Kate returns to LK Bennett for Radio 1 teen heroes’ reception

In a set of photos released today, we saw The Duchess of Cambridge return to one of her high-street favourites, LK Bennett. Kensington Palace posted photos of an event that Catherine and Prince William attended prior to the visit to Pakistan, celebrating Radio 1’s teen heroes.

Kate opted for the ‘Gabrielle’ dress from LK Bennett. It costs £395 and is available here. The piece features bracelet sleeves, a full midi skirt, peaked shoulders and a v-neck that moves into ruching detail at the waist. It is made of silk in a coral print, and was influenced by the 1930s.

We got a glimpse of the back pointed heels the Duchess was wearing, too. The toe shape and lower heel seem to indicate they are Kate’s Russell & Bromely ‘Pinpoint’ heels. These are sold out, but feature an almond toe and an heel. Catherine owns these shoes in brown, black and red.

This photo just shows the Duchess wearing hoop earring, likely her Asprey ‘Oak leaf small hoop earrings’. They currently retail for £5,500 here. They are made of 18ct gold with 1.34 carats of diamonds, and are being made to order, such is the demand.

It was nice to see Kate return to one of her high-street favourites, although LK Bennett is still facing financial troubles.
