Kate's Epsom Derby Outfit: White On!

Kate Middleton Style: Epsom Derby
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.

Kate won in that outfit. As always. simple, elegant and classy. Way to go

Not a big fan of the jacket. I’d love to see the rest of the dress.
I LOVE her hair and the hat :)

She is always so stunning! Such a graceful Young woman, Love her.

She is a beautiful woman with a wonderful sense of style. Princess Diana would be so proud that her oldest Son has chosen such a winner. Best of Luck to both of them.

I just hope Harry picks one as good as Catherine, and in my humble opinion, whatever her name is from Zimbabwe doesn’t make the grade. Seems more like a hit and get kind of relationship.

Dress is very pretty…love the hat and little shoes…the Duchess is very pretty…wish her all the best

Kathy on

Classy as always!

Tara on

Is she purposely dressing like Diana? It can’t be a coincidence that every outfit she wears is reminiscent of something Diana wore at a similar event.

I liked Kate Middleton’s ensemble, very nice! Also, congrats to People on certain things and good luck on them!

Amy B on

I love Kate’s white ensemble! I hope she and Will keep the royal family moving forward, but remaining elegant, well-mannered, and well-behaved!

Lorraine on

She’s a beauty BUT she looks way too thin! The whole ensemble is lovely, but skirt too short for her long gangly legs. And what’s up with her ALWAYS holding her purse with her ring hand on top? (Obviously to show off THAT ring, but I mean………) She did this while talking with the Obamas as well. It looks so contrived but I guess that’s what she’s been “trained” to do by the royal way of behaving. Too bad!

Amanda on

Lorraine – the Royal Family do things a certain way being “proper” as the right word. I don’t really consider it trained but just the way they do things. I think it makes her look elegant and distinguished.

KSam on

Okay, that’s not William with her…ha. Pretty dress…

Natalie on

My goodness Lorraine, lighten up before you stroke out!I think Kate is stunning, and I love her sense of style–classic, elegant, and timeless.

Lisa on

Lorraine, why be a Debbie Downer? Wouldn’t you show off that ring too if you had just married one of the most eligible bachelors? Not to mention, THE son of Princess Diana? It sounds as if you’re jealous more than anything. Her outfit is beautiful and enhances her beauty. Gangly legs? Please. And yes, while some of her actions may be contrived, you need to understand there are ways that are proper and improper for her to hold herself as a member of a royal family. Get over it.

Jon on

Congrats to Rapper, Ice-T, and his Wife, Coco, on Renewing Their Wedding Vows, and I am excited for Josh Duhamel to return to All My Children!

heather on

@Lorraine, perhaps she’s right handed and holds things in her right hand with her left overtop. Doesn’t seem so contrived to me. But I do wish she’d put on a little weight – she’s gotten way too thin.

Naomi on

This outfit is for wearing to church not a Horse race. I actually would have like to have seen her wear some colour. I thought the outfit was very bland. The jacket was too tight and was pulling on the buttons.

Melanie on

Love her outfit. She always look so beautiful. You should devote a whole Style Magazne to her.

Love the white suit. Love her hair up. The hat is unattractive…she could have chosen something so much prettier. Anyway, she looks good.

Ann on

Catherine’s legs are too skinny.She is too tall to wear dresses above her knees.This outfit just doesn’t make the grade.It doesn’t look good with the jacket which is buttoned on the wrong side.The event doesn’t call for one of those silly hats either.Don’t think she will ever be as classy as Princess Diana was.But keep trying Catherine.
