Kate Middleton Stays Brand Loyal to This Beloved American Designer
When Kate Middleton loves something, she brings it back again and again. Such was the case on Wednesday morning when the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for a royal engagement in London, officially opening the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace. For the bright Spring morning, Kate wore a favorite temperate-weather piece: a Michael Kors coat dress she debuted during her tour of Australia in 2014.
In 2014, Kate wore the piece as a dress, but this week, she layered it as a coat. She completed the daytime look with a pair of nude heels and a matching clutch, one of her longtime favorite styling tricks.
Michael Kors is a top designer for royal women, but he's not the only American who has had the good fortune to dress Kate. She's also known to adore Tory Burch and Ralph Lauren, proving that when it comes to fashion diplomacy, international is best.
