The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Wimbledon made her first appearance of the 2019 Championships today.
Kate sported a new white shirt dress for the outing at The All England Club.
It is the 'Flippy Wiggle' dress (£1,850) from British designer Suzannah. Made in London, the design of the dress derives inspiration from a late 1940’s Wiggle Dress, which Suzannah have re-cut to have a skimming fit over the bodice and fluid gentle soft movement throughout the skirt hemline. The silhouette is contoured around the waist with delicate pin-tucks and a matching belt. Pin-tucks are also placed at the front yoke detail. The tea-length dress is fashioned with contrasting silk covered buttons, and half sleeves with buttoned cuff. The dress is made from Italian silk crepe and is lined throughout the bodice and skirt in lightweight silk habotai.
The Duchess replaced the dress belt with a contrasting black Alexander McQueen bow-front leather waist belt.
I initially thought it was the same one she wore with her black tweed Alexander McQueen dress in Paris during the 2017 visit, however British Royal Fashion Data points out that they are different.
She offset the monochrome outfit with a new two-tone bag.
It is the Alexander McQueen 'Wicca' mini satchel featuring a raffia body and black leather trim. ID by @ufonomore.
On her feet Kate wore her black Gianvito Rossi 'Piper' 85 suede pumps.
The Duchess donned a new pair of Ray-Bay Wayfarer II Classic sunglasses in tortoise with brown polarized lens (US$203). ID by @ufonomore.
We saw the return of the mystery citrine ring which is believed to date back to 2008.
Kate finished the look with her Catherine Zoraida Gold Fern Hoop Earrings.
We now know the secret to Kate's luscious lips! She uses Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Lip Gloss (US$26). It is a softly textured lip gel with a deliciously sweet scent and 3D shimmer. It's sheer, but shaded enough to wear alone or to complement your favorite lip shade. You can find a list of Kate's favourite beauty products here.
You gotta love Kate's facial expressions at Wimbledon :)
The bow pinned to Kate's dress in the official colours of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - dark green and purple, is given to members of the club.
