We journey back again to look at another appearance by Miss Middleton, this one at at a high-profile event, a wedding in January.
The bride-to-be looked smart, wearing a black velvet coat by Libelula over a sheer top, an ensemble under scrutiny by some observers. For one, the color black is almost never worn by royals unless at a funeral or memorial service; additionally there was the issue of…well…. we will merely say it involved proper foundations. Here is how The Sun’s Toni Jones put it:
“She chose the wedding of her and Prince William’s close friends, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Louise Stourton, in Yorkshire on Saturday to unveil her latest style discovery – a sleek and softly tailored, black velvet coat, with diamante buckle, from the independent London fashion label Libelula, which means dragonfly in Spanish.”
“The coat was not only remarkable for its sombre shade, but also for its plunging neckline, which revealed the semi-sheer bodice of the dress beneath, and its attainable price tag of £310, a mere fraction of what similar silk velvet coats from international luxury designer brands would cost.”
