Cathy Cambridge, Modest Diplomat

Posted on April 07, 2016

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attend a reception ahead of their tour of India and Bhutan at the Kensington Palace in London, England.

 

This is a little different for Miss Cathy, no?

It’s pretty, although we aren’t in love with the purely monochromatic take on the entire look. We’re also not in love with the high collar and sleeves, but she may have felt more pressure than usual (and she’s under a LOT) to remain modest.

Whatever else you may think of it, it’s a smart choice from a diplomatic perspective as the designer is Indian-born Saloni Lodha. Like Michelle Obama, who’s been known to choose country-specific designers on occasions like these, it seems the Duchess is developing a good understanding of how to use clothing to make a statement.
