Kate's Epsom Derby Outfit: White On!
Allpix/Splash News Online
And she’s off! Just back from her honeymoon, the Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance as a newlywed Saturday, joining her husband and brother-in-law — plus other members of the royal family — at the Epsom Derby in Surrey, England. While the men wore traditional top hats and tails — and women impressed with another round of formal toppers — Kate stood out in her sleek white ensemble, reminiscent of a suit Princess Diana wore to the Royal Ascot race 25 years ago. For her day out, Kate chose a flowing white above-the-knee dress, topped with a white tweed “Nessie” jacket from Joseph. She accessorized with an L.K. Bennett “Natalie” clutch and taupe patent leather “Sledge” pumps by the brand, Kiki McDonough citrine drop earrings and topped her look with a Whiteley hat. While Kate’s look was winning, sadly, the horses she came to cheer for were not; the Queen of England’s horse placed third, while Kate’s mother’s horse came in fourth.
