Following on from the Hold Still project coming to completion, The Duchess of Cambridge got to see the final entries in person in an outdoor exhibition of the photos at Waterloo earlier this week. Kate was joined by her husband, Prince William, for the event and chose a new look, in red and black.
The Duchess chose a cheery red McQueen coat, very similar to the ‘double-breasted asymmetric coat’ with a ruffle. It has two sets of double-breasted buttons in black that begin at the waist, intersected by a seam. Square flap pockets, peaked shoulders and an open neck, with notched lapel add a chic tailored fit to the coat. It is likely the same wool/cashmere blend, and the original cost £3,560.
Kate’s earrings were new and from Daniella Draper. They are the ‘Gold Diamond Luxury Maxi Cupid Hoop Earrings’, selling for £2,450. Made from 9ct gold, these hoops feature three diamonds each: two round brilliant stones and one baguette stone in the middle, with the style’s not-quite-perfect circles and arrowhead end. This equals about 0.65 carats. Get a pair here.
We saw a glimpse of a white top underneath, but nothing more since the event was outside.
Kate also wore another Amaia Kids mask, the ‘Yellow Pepper’ style. See here, although it is sold out.
What did you think of this look? We liked seeing the Duchess in a few different pieces, like the skirt and larger hoop earrings. It seems the change of the way of royal work since the pandemic has helped quicken a shift in style for Catherine.
