As the royal tour arrives in Australia today, The News’ fashion reporter Rhiannon Gavalakis takes a look at Kate Middleton’s outfits that had style hunters the world over gushing during her visit to New Zealand.
The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in her trademark classic silhouettes, but kept her look modern and on-trend for the season in bold-hued ensembles. In a refreshing change of pace, she also showed her casual side in off-duty looks that were polished, but dressed-down for the style icon.
On April 7 at the official welcome in Wellington, she hit all the right notes through colour, matching a dazzling double-breasted scarlet coat dress and pill box hat.
Several days later she wore an emerald jewel-toned coat with simple black pumps and clutch, exuding elegance with a modern edge as she arrived with Prince William and baby Prince George in Cambridge.
Wholeheartedly embracing one of this season’s biggest trends, the Duchess of Cambridge brought blue out of the shadows in a checked shirt and double-breasted military-style blazer on a visit to a Queenstown vineyard. With women across the world emulating her style, this look will no doubt be a sellout in stores and online this season.
She again stepped out looking more mere mortal than royal on April 13, wearing a nude knit with teal undertone, denim and flats to a rugby day at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.
Arguably her most talked about look to date during the tour was an aquamarine pleated dress from New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead, worn with an ornate-style headpiece and a fern brooch.
The Duchess of Cambridge made this look famous in 2012, when she wore a soft pink version of the dress twice, generating conversation about her love of outfit recycling.
Keep an eye on the The News in coming days for updates as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and baby Prince George, visit Australian shores.
