Kate and the Duke of Cambridge met with cultural leaders and French President François Hollande to launch ‘Les Voisins’ - a celebration of cultural ties between the UK and France after Brexit, from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 March.
As always, the Duchess looked elegant as she selected a mix of her favourite designers - from British and French to American.
Arriving in the capital wearing a dark green coat by French-born but London-based designer, Catherine Walker, Kate looked refined on St. Patrick’s Day.
For a reception at British ambassador’s residence on 17 March, the Duchess wore a black frayed dress by British designer Alexander McQueen.
Later that evening, the Duchess opted for another firm favourite: Jenny Packham. Attending a gala dinner, hosted by Edward Llewellyn, the UK’s ambassador to France, she wore a beautiful ice blue gown with Oscar de la Renta pumps and chandelier earrings on loan from the Queen.
Continuing their tour on 18 March, the Duchess wore a red and blue Chanel dress with a maroon quilted bag to match. A nod to the famed French fashion house as she visited the Eiffel Tower.
Known for recycling her outfits, Kate picked her pillar-box red Carolina Herrera coat, the same one she wore during her and Prince William’s Canada tour in 2016, to watch a France versus Wales rugby match.
And the eagled eyed will have spotted Kate also recycled a pair of Tod’s heels, which she previously wore during their Canada tour in 2016, to complete her Chanel outfit.
We salute your recycling ways, Kate.
