Kate In Dolce and Gabbana for Wimbledon Men’s Final

Kate went with a vibrant yellow dress at Wimbledon today.

The Duke and Duchess were at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club for the Gentlemen’s Singles Final.


Below you see Kate and William with Prime Minister Theresa May.

She always seems to have a terrific time at the event.

As ever, Kate’s expressions during Wimbledon are fun to watch.

And the couple looked like they really enjoyed watching the match.

The royal box was filled with notable names, including PR Executive Hannah Bagshawe and her husband, Eddie Redmayne.

Actor Hugh Grant speaking with Ms. Bagshawe.

From left to right, Saadiya Khan, wife of London Mayor Sadiq Khan; the mayor; the Duke of Kent, with his back to the camera.


Emma Watson and Luke Evans. Seated behind Mr. Evans (with the water bottle), Tom Holland, perhaps best known for his roles in the Spiderman movies.

Behind Prince William, actor Tom Hiddleston.

Katherine Jenkins and her husband, actor/artist Andrew Levitas.


It was another warm and humid day.

The temperature was 85° when the match started.

And both players were coming off brutal semi-finals matches. More from ESPN:

Djokovic and Anderson won the two longest semifinals in Wimbledon history to get to Sunday’s title match. Anderson played for more than 6½ hours before edging John Isner 26-24 in the fifth set Friday. Djokovic needed 5 hours, 15 minutes to get past Rafael Nadal in a match that ended Saturday.

Mr. Djokovic was the victor.


The reaction from Jelena Djokovic, wife of the champion (in white), and the couple’s son, Stefan.

It was his fourth Wimbledon title and thirteenth Grand Slam victory. It’s difficult to see, but the Duke of Kent is just to the left of Mr. Djokovic, after presenting him with the trophy. The president of the AELTC presents the trophies; the Duke is president.


Now for what Kate wore, a knee-length fitted dress from Dolce and Gabbana.

It is from the brand’s Resort 2017 collection. Made in a rayon/acetate crepe, it features a fitted bodice, round neckline, concealed back zipper and ruffled sleeves. As of 11 am, it is only available at YOOX in a US size 4 ($1050). Below, a look at the dress from the back.  Once again, our thanks to Michelle of Perths Fashion for sharing the dress information!

Kate carried the handbag seen yesterday, the Miss Sicily style.

It remains available at My Theresa ($1695) as well as at SSense ($1695).

In the photo of Kate from the back, you can see she is also carrying what appears to be a vinyl cosmetic case or pouch. The color looks like it could be Wimbledon’s purple; it may be something given to guests.

UPDATE: There are a few photos that show Kate’s feet, and it looks like she did wear the Gianvito Rossi pumps in ‘praline’ suede ($675) seen yesterday. (We show them in a photo from yesterday’s match.) They are available at Saks in a so-so mix of sizes, and also at My Theresa, where there is a very limited selection of sizes ($675). UPDATE 2: It does not look like Kate was wearing the Praline pumps, but a nude point-toe shoe that we can’t identify. NOTE: The consensus in comments is that Kate was *not* wearing the Rossis. Here is a video Middleton Maven discovered that shows Kate’s feet.

It looks like the Duchess wore the sunglasses we first saw yesterday.

They are the Ray-Ban New Rubber Youngster style in gradient brown. The frame almost looks black in some photos, but when lightened you can see the brown color variations in the matte rubber frame.

It looks like the style is still available at Amazon ($143), but sold out at Shopbop.

Kate wore a necklace not seen for some time, the three pieces from the Asprey Woodland Charms collection.

It looked like she had on a new (to us) pair of earrings. 

The ever-savvy Michelle wonders if they might also be from Asprey. UPDATE #1: Michelle thinks it’s possible the earrings are the same design as this Oak Leaf Bracelet from Asprey.  UPDATE #2: Michelle’s theory was spot-on, Asprey confirms Kate was wearing their earrings. Thank you to KatiesRoyalLove on Twitter for sharing the confirmation.

UPDATE #3 JULY 21: It turns out Kate was wearing the Asprey Oak Leaf Small Hoop Earrings ($6450). The earrings are 18K yellow gold with pavé diamonds; they are now available on the jeweler’s site.

The Duchess wore the citrine cocktail ring most recently seen at Meghan and Harry’s wedding. Thank heaven Sara mentioned the ring on Twitter and Maryrose sent a DM on Facebook or I might have completely overlooked it.

Kate had on her Cartier Ballon Bleu stainless steel wristwatch.

She also wore the purple/green members’ ribbon that the 375 members of the AELTC may wear. (If you scroll up and look at the photo of Kate in sunglasses, you’ll see Rod Laver’s tie is in the Wimbledon colors.)

We’ll see you in a few days with a new post!

What post baby body? She looks great.

I love both Wimbledon looks, but this one really knocks it out of the (proverbial) tennis court! The dress is perfectly tailored, the details are so subtle and understated, but that color is just outstanding. I love that on the first outing, her neutral dress was beautiful without detracting any attention away from her companion, the DoS. But this time, she knows all eyes are on her and she embraces it with a screaming yellow dress. Very much taking a cue from the Queen, who also chooses colors to stand out in a crowd.

Her hair is at its most gorgeous. One day when people are able to alter their genes and grow any hair they want, we'll all have Princess Kate hair. ;)

Also after seeing the cut and fit of both these Wimbledon looks, can we please put to rest all the comments about her post-partum figure?! She is not dealing with a baby-body. It's just her body...she is a three-time mother and may also be nursing, so yes, there will be changes to her shape. But there's just no need to imply that something is wrong with her figure because she "just had a baby" or that her clothes are cut to be "forgiving."

I have loved seeing all these different looks from her lately.

Here here! I totally agree that she looks fabulous and let’s leave it at that.

I love Kate in this yellow color. It's the second time I've seen her pull it off and it's a very difficult color to wear without looking jaundice. Somehow she looks fantastic in this color and it always reminds me of when William told her she looked like a banana during the Australian tour. Sorry Wills, but the yellow is a keeper!

I remember William saying that! Too funny! Most of all, I just love how happy they look together. William & Catherine really seem to enjoy each other's company & spend much of their time laughing and smiling when together. What a blessing! Wishing them years of laughter & happiness :)

I also wonder how can she pull off sunny yellow AND icy blue? Does she have a neutral coloring?


Monday 16th of July 2018

Lol, did William say that? That's hilarious, not because it's true, but because it shows what a fun and loving relationship they have. Too cute!! The length and style of the dress keep her from looking like a banana :-)
