Cathy Cambridge and the Case of the Recycled Frock

Posted on August 05, 2014

Like all sensible Duchesses, Cathy knows a good deal when she sees one. And since this dress worked so well for her once before, she sees no reason to take it out of circulation. We called it a great “working dress” the last time and it’s clear that’s exactly how she sees it. It’s like it’s her Duchess uniform.

Catherine is wearing a L.K. Bennett ‘Detroit’ dress paired with Jimmy Choo pumps and a Russell & Bromley ‘Muse’ clutch.

It’s not great style, but it works really well and it suits the occasion. She must have figured it would photograph spectacularly against all that red.

Dear God, the men in that family do not know how to get a suit fitted, do they? Harry’s jacket is too long and both it and the pants are too full. Will’s jacket is a skosh too short and it gives him ladyhips. No wonder Cathy doesn’t overdo it on the style front. With these two as her co-stars, she only needs to show up in something that fits correctly and she’s won the day.
