The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge had a busy evening on their second night in New York. They first attended a reception for their charity, United for Wildlife, before heading to a NBA game at the Barclay Center to launch the partnership between the Royal Foundation, United for Wildlife, and the NBA.
The conservation reception was held at British Consul General’s residence on behalf of the Tusk Trust and United for Wildlife, where Prince William, Hillary Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton all spoke about fighting the illegal wildlife trade.
This evening, Kate wore a new tweed coat from American fashion brand Tory Burch. The 'Bettina' tweed coat ($595) is a cotton-blend jacket woven with bouclé, slubbed and metallic yarns. It has slit pockets and a hidden snap button placket. It is finished with a belted collar.
Her accessories included the Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch (£495) in bespoke black suede leather and Stuart Weitzman 'Power' black suede pumps (US$335).
Kate paired the coat with black skinny jeans, most likely Topshop Maternity Moto Leigh jeans (£38). Kate has been spotted wearing the Topshop maternity Moto Leigh Jeans following her pregnancy with Prince George.
The style she wore tonight does not have the rolled cuff, but the new season Moto Leigh jeans shows them with an unrolled leg opening.
The Duchess added some bling to her ensemble with a pair of statement earrings, wearing the Patric Mavros Crocodile Stud Earrings Large (£160). Kate has worn earrings from this jeweler before who is an avid supporter of wildlife conservation, and hence a good fit for tonight's theme.
At the NBA game, the Duchess unbuttoned her coat to reveal a black high-neck sweater.
I'll leave you with some photos of Kate and William at tonight's NBA game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets.

Following today's meeting between Kate and J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons at the GREAT reception, it was reported that Kate wore J. Crew denim to last night's Conservation reception and NBA game. Royal correspondent Rebecca English received confirmation from Ms. Lyons, quoting: “I was told she wore J. Crew jeans last night to the game. I was so excited. You couldn’t tell, but that’s okay. At least I know that fact.”
