Kate Middleton Does the Bold Sleeve Trend in a Sparkling Green Dress & Pointed-Toe Pumps in Dublin

Kate Middleton tried out bold sleeves — one of the biggest red carpet trends of the 2020 awards season — for a reception at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin today.

The mom of three sported a dress from The Vampire’s Wife, a label that has previously been favored by another British royal, Princess Beatrice. Kate wore the brand’s Falconetti dress, which is made of emerald silk chiffon with ruffled sleeves and trim. It is selling online for $2,076.

Kate carried a gold clutch from Wilber & Gussie, which she has owned for several years. The clutch sells on the brand’s site for 245 pounds ($314).

The duchess arrived in Dublin earlier today wearing another all-green look. She sported a Catherine Walker coat over a floral dress from Alessandra Rich spring ’20. On her feet, the University of St. Andrews alum wore pointed-toe pumps that appeared to be from Emmy London, one of her go-to brands.
