Before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the US next month, Catherine was flying solo on the red carpet yesterday (November 19) evening for the Place2be Wellbeing in Schools Awards Reception held at Kensington Palace in London, England.
The Duchess wore a Hobbs textured crepe overlay top in an embroidered polka-dot design with a subtle peplum waist detail accented with a belt and paired with a Jenny Packham Fall 2013 teal-blue silk knee-length skirt.
Styled with her favourite Jimmy Choo pumps and Cassandra Goad ‘Temple of Heaven’ earrings, I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this look.
While I would’ve loved the full runway look had this been a gala or a dinner party, her top is actually a really interesting choice, especially when paired with the belt.
Event and season appropriate without being boring? Colour me impressed.
