The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently made their first official royal visit to Ireland and Kate Middleton took every opportunity to pay homage to the Emerald Isle with her fashion choices.
The couple arrived in Dublin for their three-day trip in coordinating looks. Middleton wore a forest-green coat by British brand Catherine Walker over a green printed midi-dress by Italian designer Alessandra Rich. She accessorized the look with a LK Bennet emerald green clutch and a velvet hair band. William opted for a green tie with a navy suit.
Later that evening at a reception at Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, Middleton wore an iridescent emerald Falconetti dress from The Vampire’s Wife. She paired the £1,595 gown (approximately $2,800 Canadian dollars) with Manolo Blahnik pumps, dangling earrings and her signature blowout.
The dress from indie British label Vampire’s Wife was a fashion-forward choice for Middleton, but she’s not the only royal who loves the label; Princess Beatrice wore the same dress twice last year – once for Ellie Goulding’s wedding and again at the Queen’s annual garden party.
