Trying to go back to maintaining a routine alongside the Coronavirus has brought the Dukes of Kensington back into action even outside the confines of the home. Thanks to that, we got to see the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, twice in one day, with a lightning-fast exchange between two particularly well-thought-out and beautiful outfits, from good and luxurious homes.
The first stop was a big premiere, a photography competition based on the Coronavirus named “Hold Still,” which the Duchess spearheaded and was even part of the judging panel that selected between the masses of nominations, which finally selected the outstanding photos. The exhibition, which featured photos from quarantine, is displayed in 112 different public locations and is the project closest to the Duchess’s heart in the past year. And the outfit Middleton chose for the opening event reflects that.
Middleton stunned in a new coat dress from Alexander McQueen, in a rich and majestic burgundy shade, an item based on a particular McQueen coat, which has been modified especially for her, with two rows of buttons on the front, and a skirt that reaches to the ankles. On her arm, Middleton carried a new bag from the Grace Han label, black and classic, which contributed to the overall periodic look. The Duchess completed the look with a pair of wide-heeled Russian Gianvito pumps we saw before and a new gold, diamond-studded hoop earrings by Daniela Draper. The mask she chose was, again, from the children’s clothing label Amaya Kids, in a yellowish floral print that did not exactly blend in with the rest of the look.
Later that day, Middleton stepped out with William for a completely different task – awarding the British Pride Awards, outside the Bartholomew Hospital, where they gave respect and attention to vital workers in this historic time. For this purpose, the Dukes dressed as if in uniform themselves – William in a standard blue suit, and Kate with him, in her own blue suit, from the label Smith. The jacket was the main attraction of this look, which features an unusual design, especially in its back. Kate wore this jacket before, in 2011, and a few more times after that. This time, combined with the matching pants and a button-down blue shirt, she has taken it to new districts. So, what do you think of these looks?
