Kate Middleton—a.k.a. the Duchess of Cambridge—is undoubtedly a fashion icon with her penchant for classic cuts and bold colours. (So adored is her style that the fashion world has dubbed her influence on clothing and accessory sales the “Kate effect.”) Considering how she always dresses fit for a (future) queen it only makes sense. Below, some of her best looks.
Perfect paisley for photography workshop with Action For Children
Duchess Kate was all smiles and looked breezy and carefree as she stepped out on Tuesday (June 25) at a Royal Photographic Society workshop run by Action for Children, one of her patronages.
The mom of three sported a grey dress with a paisley pattern and her high heel Castaner espadrille wedges. She wore her hair down, meeting with a group of children looking to develop new photography skills.
You might remember Kate’s espadrilles from another royal who wore them on tour last year. Duchess Meghan stepped out wearing the same Castaner shoes–in black instead of tan–when she and Prince Harry visited Bondi Beach in Australia last year. The fondness for Castaner also runs in Kate’s family – her sister, Pippa Middleton, has also been pictured wearing the shoes, which are favourites among celebs such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway, too, according to Good Housekeeping.
