For shoes, the Duchess of Cambridge opted for one of her old favorites, Gianvito Rossi. She went with the brand’s classic pointed-toe pumps, fabricated in a deep red suede. The shoes were a repeat for Kate, who wore them in 2016; the silhouette can be purchased now at Farfetch.com for $397 (40% off).
The mother of three finished off her look with more red, choosing a Jenny Packham clutch (which she’s worn before) and ruby earrings from Soru that appeared to be new.
Meanwhile, Prince William stood beside his wife in a dark navy suit, white collared shirt and burgundy tie. Shining black lace-up shoes completed the Duke of Cambridge’s ensemble.
Gianvito Rossi is one of Kate’s favorite labels for formal appearances, with others including Jimmy Choo, Emmy London and Rupert Sanderson. More laidback styles favored by the University of St. Andrews alum include Penelope Chilvers riding boots and Superga Cotu sneakers.
