At an art event on Thursday, Kate Middleton wore a patterned blouse instead of her usual monochromatic solids. The Duchess of Cambridge, who graduated from St. Andrew’s University with an art history degree, paid a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to see the Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution exhibition, which features over 200 bejeweled objects created by Carl Fabergé.
Middleton’s fashion choices were also a little avant-garde. The duchess wore a Ralph Lauren pussy bow top with a paisley pattern in blue, red, and teal, which she paired with black trousers. She added a navy blue snakeskin-embossed leather belt, gold hoop earrings, and a black face mask to the long-sleeved, ’70s-inspired statement shirt. Her bouncy curls were pulled away from her face and tucked into a sleek ponytail.
The exhibit featured three items donated by Kate’s grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth: the Colonnade Egg, Basket of Flowers Egg, and Mosaic Egg, in addition to Fabergé’s famous Imperial Easter Eggs collection. While learning about the legendary artist’s work, the duchess carefully observed the pieces.
The royal has a busy couple of weeks ahead of her, with the holidays just around the corner. Indeed, she’ll be hosting a Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey next week to honor the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’re sure to see her on Christmas Day at St Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk.
