Kate Middleton had another year to remember in 2015, giving birth to Princess Charlotte and appearing at a host of royal engagements. The Duchess of Cambridge definitely stepped up her fashion game too — wearing frocks and coats from Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana and Christopher Kane, among others. But she kept her shoe style fairly classic, opting mainly for classic pumps.
Jimmy Choo’s Gilbert style has become Middleton’s go-to pump during the past few months. She’s worn them to several charity engagements, even for a Wellie throwing contest.
There were a couple of other big standout Choo moments for Kate. The Duchess chose the label’s Vamp sparkly sandals to pair with her Jenny Packham powder blue sheer gown for the premiere of “Spectre,” the latest James Bond film. She walked the red carpet with her husband, Prince William, and brother-in-law Prince Harry and met the film’s cast, including Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes.

Another highlight of the year was when she donned Gianvito Rossi pumps (with a lace Dolce & Gabbana frock) for an outing to Lancaster House with Chinese President Xi and his wife, Madam Peng Liyuan during their visit to London in October.
For Commonwealth Day in March, the pregnant Duchess showed off some pink pumps at a Westminster Abbey service, a refreshing change from her usual black.
