The tenth day of the 2011 Canada/USA Tour where the couple attended their only black tie affair at the BAFTA ‘Brits to Watch’ event.
JULY 9, 2011
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA
The Duchess of Cambridge attended The Foundation Polo Challenge At The Santa Barbara Polo And Racquet Club wearing a hand-painted floral silk grey dress by Jenny Packham, which she teamed with nude patent leather sandals by LK Bennett.
She accessorized with her Kiki McDonough Citrine Drop earrings, the gold chunky bracelet which she wore with her green DVF dress at the British Consul General’s house and her L.K. Bennett Natalie clutch.
BELASCO THEATRE, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
The Duchess made her appearance at the BAFTA ‘Brits to Watch’ event in a custom-made full length pale lavender gown by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. The gown was sleeveless with a round neckline and pleated details. A glittering silver belt clinched in the dress at the waist.
On her ears, she wore diamond chandelier earrings on loaned to her by Queen Elizabeth and a diamond bracelet. On her feet, she wore glittery champagne-hued sandals called Jimmy Choo Vamp; $750 at Net-A-Porter.com. To match her shoes, she carried a matching clutch – Jimmy Choo Ubai clutch; $595 at JimmyChoo.com.
Thoughts: Two knock-out outfits in a day! I love, love, love the Jenny Packham silk dress!!! It is simple gorgeous and to let the dress shine, the Duchess paired the dress with simply accessories. For the black tie event, the Duchess was outstanding! Some might say the dress looked boring, but the demure neckline and pleating on the dress seem to fit the Duchess perfectly and the pleating made the dress drape beautifully and created lots of movement when she walked. The sparkly accessories created a gorgeous statement.
