Red and white are the colours of love and we L-O-V-E this outfit on Kate. Sure the colour scheme, pin and Maple Leaf fascinator are a bit literal, but we think the Duchess looks trim and chic in her recycled Reiss dress. Yes, that famous white Reiss engagement picture dress:
Word has it that Kate was invited to borrow whatever selection of the Queen's jewels her heart desired for this tour. Talk about kid in a candy store. We have a feeling we won't be seeing many dazzlers or tiaras on this tour, that's not where Kate is headed image-wise at the moment, but we did get to see the first loaned piece on Canada Day.
The on-loan Maple Leaf brooch was worn by QEII (then Princess Elizabeth) during a 1951 trip to Canada. A nice way for Kate to bring her grandmother-in-law into the conversation. Kate's red hot fascinator is by Sylvia Fletcher at Lock + Co and the fab fan clutch is from Anya Hindmarch. Kate's red pumps? They're the Hobbs Albini Square Cut Court Shoes.
