While we love the Duchess of Cambridge’s style choices, sometimes she catches us out. Here are Kate’s top 10 surprising fashion moments.
In September 2013 Kate celebrated a night away from new baby George in style, thanks to this sparkly silver Jenny Packham gown and a pair of Jimmy Choos.
The Duchess of Cambridge surprised us with a pop of colour at a school visit in London this week. Not only did she wear a bright pinky-red pencil dress by Goat (already sold out online), Kate made the unusual style choice of hair half up.
We’re not sure what’s more surprising – Kate’s bright striped Jonathan Saunders coat or the fact that the demure duchess has a whisky in her hand!
Kate wore this pretty peplum dress featuring unusual patterned sleeves by American designer Lela Rose to a reception hosted by Governor-General Peter Cosgrove during the royal couple’s trip to Australia in 2014.Related: Kate Middleton’s bare bottom pic published on German website
No one expected Kate to step off the plane in Wellington wearing a retro flight attendant’s uniform! The duchess matched her red Catherine Walker coat with a perfect pillbox hat by Gina Foster (and one very cute bub!)
Surprising for two reasons: 1. Because we couldn’t wait to see which Aussie designer Kate would wear first, and 2. this Zimmerman dress wasn’t a sell out after the duchess wore it in Sydney.
The usually conservative Kate donned this sunny yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress when she visited Sydney in April. Related: Kate Middleton’s baby bump in photos
We wouldn’t pick Kate as a fan of animal print, but the heavily pregnant royal stepped out in distinctive Dalmation print at a cruise ship-naming in 2013.
More surprising than Kate’s green Mulberry shirt dress was her short-lived flirtation with a fringe, circa November 2012.
You can count on one hand the number of times we’ve seen Kate’s shoulders since she joined the royal family. One of them is the time Kate wore this stunning strappy Amanda Wakeley gown to a 2011 event. Related:French mag publishes topless pics of Duchess
