When it comes to describing Kate Middleton, we’ve got to admit we’d usually opt for demure over daring, until we clocked last night’s outfit offering! The Duke and Duchess were at London’s Claridge’s Hotel for the Thirty Club dinner, where a suited and booted William gave a speech, and Kate showed off her sexier side in a split-to-the-thigh ivory Roland Mouret gown.
The style shake up didn’t end with the pin-flashing frock either, as Kate
swapped her signature sensible nude courts for a pair of aptly named Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ metallic snakeskin strappies. Perhaps she’s taken Nicholas Kirkwood’s recent comments to heart – the shoe designer slammed K Mid
for her lack of ‘princess-y’ style, claiming ‘She just wears too much high street stuff. I know she’s trying to be democratic, but I don’t know how many pairs of LK Bennett you can wear. You’re meant to be a princess-y type person, so act like one!’ Well, those Choo’s are a modern day Cinderella shoe if ever we saw one. The finishing touch? Impossibly glossy locks tonged to perfection, of course. Racy Kate
– we like it! GG
