Too Cute! Kate Middleton Makes An $88 Dress Look A Million Bucks
HOW adorable is Kate Middleton? The Duchess proved that you can be chic and sporty, attending the launch of a sports initiative yesterday with Princes Harry and William at Bacon's College in London. The last time we saw HRH she was label-central wearing a chic ladylike Stella McCartney frock and a Cartier necklace worth a pretty $74,000 — so it was refreshing to see Kate was back to her high street tricks opting, for a fit-and-flare frock from UK chain store Hobbs. The check-print dress retailed originally for (approx) $179, but was recently reduced to a thrifty (approx) $88. Unfortunately, said dress has now sold out — such is Middleton effect! Kate teamed her '50s frock with a neutral woven waist-belt and taupe espadrilles, which she happily kicked off for a judo demonstration. Step inside to see Kate's cheap 'n' cheerful look, from allangles . . .
