Kate chose the designer’s ‘Jacquenta’ dress from the pre-fall 2011 collection for this morning’s non-denominational worship service aboard the HMCS Montreal; she also wore it for the afternoon ceremonies in Quebec City.
We want to acknowledge the amazingly rapid identification of the dress by our Facebook friend Anne.
The dress is fitted, has three-quarter length sleeves and showcases Mr. Moralioglu’s skill with lace overlays and embellishment.
The Duchess again demonstrates her diplomatic savvy by choosing a dress from a ‘favorite son’ designer, one that also reflects awareness of Quebec’s provincial flag, it is blue and white. Subtle touches, to be sure, but ultimately important in the bigger scheme of things.
Kate repeated her sapphire and diamond earrings, LK Bennett Sledge2 pumps and her clutch. I think all of these may be categorized as “go to” items for the Duchess. Also of note, Kate has once again opted for a dark or navy blue, at this point I would say it is becoming one of her signature colors, along with white.
For those interested in the designer, Net-a-Porter has a number of pieces available, as does My Theresa. For a look at similar dresses with a *much* friendlier price point, pop over and visit our friends at Kate Middleton Style Blog.
