Finally!!! – Kate Middleton was spotted out and about last week, when she went along to the unveiling of her first ever official royal portrait at the National Portrait Gallery. The painting was created by the artist Paul Emsley, and the Duchess even took part in two sittings earlier last year, in order for the painting to truly capture her likeness!
For the special occasion, Kate opted for a red Whistles dress, teamed with a simple 167 Button Pendant by Asprey. The dress actually comes from their Autumn 2011 collection, so, unfortunately, we definitely can’t get our hands on this one! Plus, for the eagle eyed amongst you, yes, you have seen her wearing it before, as it was her dress of choice whilst on a UNICEF visit in Denmark back in November 2011.
So, here’s a couple of my favourites off of the high-street (above), as to help you to re-create her look. 1. Dorothy Perkins’ chiffon tiered dress, £32 is a great take on the look with its cute little collar and buttoned through front. 2. Boohoo’s Adriana long sleeve wrap dress is a complete steal at just £15!! 3. Or, a gorgeous patterned take on the look is French Connection’s Timber Jersey long sleeve dress, which is currently on sale for £25, instead of £62.
