Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Reception

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was at The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange reception, held at Buckingham Palace on Monday (February 19) in London, where Naomi Campbell was also in attendance.

Many looks would appear conservative compared to Naomi’s theatrical entrance at the event—so it’s no surprise this Erdem floral number fell into that category.

The black-and-white patterned frock likely came as no surprise to many. But, it did flirt with just a bit of playfulness in its flared hem, with the pumps keeping it right within her style wheelhouse.

There were mixed feelings on her two Erdem dresses, worn earlier this month during her visit to Sweden. What do you make of this one?

    Her best Erdem, still nothing extraordinary.

    I really want to introduce her to some Christopher Kane, some Burberry, Mary Katrantzou, Peter Pilotto and others. Damn, even one Julien MacDonald look to liven things up.

      Julien McDonald? do you people to get a heart attack? LOL

      I think this is her best Erdem look among the 3.

      The idea of the Duchess in Julien MacDonald is hysterical. The reaction of the “royal style police” would be priceless.

      Can I help you ? Actually Gareth Pugh and David Koma would work really well on her. I think we might want to rethink Mary K because her shoe choice would ruin it and make it look like Hobbs on LSD.

        Yeah, also inform her about Nicolas Kirkwood and Sophia Webster.

          How about Manolo or even Roger Vivier?

      Does Julien Macdonald still design ? Never been a fan

    not a big fan of this dress. I think the flared hem and the sleeves make it look matronly on her.

    • JHH February 20, 2018 at 22:30 #

      This is my typical reaction to her looks.

    Very cute on her. I like the shoes too.

    Could someone please keep her away from Erdem ? He does her no favours
