Jenna Lyons Wore Sequins to Meet Kate Middleton
After seeing Kate Middleton and Prince William make their way into The Carlyle hotel Sunday evening and then to a private dinner shortly afterward, we had high hopes for the duchess's first daytime outfit. After all, she strolled the streets of New York in a glittering Seraphine coat and an Amara lace Beulah London cocktail dress (US$797) — both of which ensured us she had packed a very stylish wardrobe in her suitcase.
Of course, the duchess's stylish daytime looks didn't disappoint. She channelled her inner New Yorker in two chic coatdresses, the first by Goat and the second by American designer Tory Burch.
And today she wore a bright, hot-pink number by Mulberry. The eye-catching, double-breasted topper stands out in the gloomy weather as Kate and William tour the National September 11 Memorial Museum, the Empire State Building, and later, attend the Creativity Is GREAT reception — where she took off her jacket to reveal a black turtleneck dress and a chunky pendant necklace.
Aside from the duchess, we were really focused on what Jenna Lyons wore when she shook Kate's hand: loose navy trousers, a striped shirt, statement heels, a fringe-embellished ombré top, and a handful of rings. Sounds about right. Keep reading to see Kate meet one of our all-time favourite designers while sporting her own fabulous accessory: a growing baby bump! Then get the details on everything the duke and duchess have worn in NYC so far, and stay tuned for the next appearance from the impossibly chic pair.
