Here with your afternoon fashion watch, we have a brief look at Kate’s dress selection for the official welcoming ceremony in Canada.
The dress is by Montreal-born designer Erdem Moralioglu, his website may be found here, the Duchess was wearing the ‘Cecile’ style.
The Cecile dress is shown on the designer’s site as being from the Pre-Spring 2011 collection, but it is identified at many fashion sites as being from the Resort 2012 collection, that may explain why it isn’t shown as available for purchase anywhere.
Mr. Moralioglu shows both his collections at London Fashion Week, his garments are available at a number of upscale retailers, including Saks, Neimans, Barneys, Harrods, Harvey Nichols and many more.
Kate again wore the LK Bennett Sledge2 pump in light taupe, and carried the envelope clutch we have seen on many previous occasions.
(You know, the clutch remains an item we still haven’t been able to identify!) We are also working on the earrings Kate wore and hope to have that information later today.
Some fashion fans are expressing a desire to see The Duchess in brighter colors, in looks that are not quite so conservative as the navy worn this morning and again this afternoon. I imagine we will see her in some bright red for this evening’s outdoor barbecue, and we’ll see you then as well!
