Duchess Kate: white midi-length cocktail dress with architectural black detailing by Gosia Baczynska

White silk midi-length cocktail dress with architectural black detailing. The sleeveless dress features black-edge pleats on the bottom part of the dress, delicate leaf black embellishment at the waist and a deep v-neckline. By Polish designers, Gosia Baczynska.

This is a daring choice for the Duchess, I like the embellisment at the waist and the black detailing on the skirt and the fabric. I don’t like the conic effect at the breast.

Duchess Kate: White wool and silk-blend twill peplum coat by Alexander McQueen

White wool and silk-blend twill peplum coat. It features a V neckline, concealed button fastenings through double-breasted front, three-quarter sleeves and it kicks out at the waist into a rippling peplum that softly folds at the back. By Alexander McQueen.

 

The version worn by Kate doesn’t have the rippling peplum at the back and seems to be white and not ivory like the original coat on these pictures. It is a beautiful coat, very elegant and very nicely tailored.

Duchess Kate: white lace dress by Alexander McQueen

White cotton blend and silk lace dress featuring delicate pleats, a high neck, three-quarter sleeves, a concealed rear zip fastening and a flared skirt. By Alexander McQueen.

The dress worn by the Duchess is a bespoke piece with a higher neckline and a longer hem. It is a lovely dress but I prefer the version with the round neck.

Duchess Kate: Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress by Rochas

Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress. The dress with an off-white floral pattern features side slit pockets, button-fastening keyhole at the back and zip fastening along the back. By Rochas.

This dress is interesting in the way the fabric flows when in movement but I find it a bit too dark and a bit too long.

Duchess Kate: blush pink silk dress by Alexander McQueen

Bespoke blush pink, ankle-length silk dress featuring a deep vee-neck and billowing sleeves which are cuffed with three self-covered buttons, pleats at the front and back of the skirt. By Alexander McQueen.

I don’t find the style of this dress very attractive, it is way too fussy. I like the colour and the fabric though.

I can’t decide if I like this coat or if I don’t. It looks very regal and fitted for a Princess but on the edge of being a bit too much. I would however say that it is a hit on the Duchess, the colour is delightful.
