The world is watching Kate Middleton’s every move — and outfit change — in India, and the Duchess of Cambridge is helping some key British shoe designers garner major buzz.
On Monday, the Duchess of Cambridge wore Rupert Sanderson ‘Pink Lady’ textured kid-leather Calice pumps, which feature a pointed toe and skinny set-back heel. She paired the style with an off-white Emilia Wickstead dress, and looked elegant while meeting young Indian entrepreneurs and paying respects to Gandhi at a museum and memorial. Middleton took the Sanderson shoes off while paying respects, giving photographers, and onlookers, a chance to see the shoes close up.
Earlier, the Duchess had a Marilyn Monroe-type moment as her dress was lifted in a gust of wind.
Meanwhile, one of Middleton’s three ensembles on Sunday included a pair of L.K. Bennett “Fern” nude court heels. She paired the look with a printed-paisley Alexander McQueen dress from the pre-fall ’16 collection. She changed into Mint Velvet wedge heels to play cricket — wowing the crowd of spectators with her impressive athletic skills. And for an evening dinner with Bollywood stars, Middleton glittered in a royal blue beaded dress by one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham. (We were disappointed that we couldn’t get a good glimpse of her shoes, however.)
This evening, the Duchess wore what looked to be black peep-toe sandals with her two-piece Alice Temperley beaded dress as she and William took part in a celebration for the Queen’s upcoming 90th birthday.
“I am incredibly lucky to have my grandmother in my life. She is a remarkably energetic and guiding force for her family,” William told the crowd.
