On Sunday 7th December 2014, William and Kate arrived in New York ahead of a three day mini “tour”.
The royal couple were greeted at the Carlyle hotel in New York City, where crowds of fans had queued all day to catch a glimpse of their favourite royals.
For her arrival at the hotel, the Duchess wore a rich purple tweed coat by Seraphine Maternity, it’s known as the “Marina” style.
Seraphine confirmed the coat was a bespoke piece “created exclusively for the Duchess.”
Kate carried her Stuart Wetizman “Muse” or “Raz” clutch bag (it’s known as both style names) in black suede. Below, I show it in blue:
Tonight marked a return for Kate’s black suede “shooties” (shoe booties). They’re currently a mystery to us Kate fans – we’re not sure which company designed them.
We do know that the Duchess has worn the booties once or twice in the past. Anna from My Small Obsessions has found a photo that dates them back to at least 2009.
Kate added a little bling to her outfit with a pair of diamond earrings – the pair first debuted during the 2011 Canada tour, at the Canada Day concert.
Finally, Kate kept warm with her black wool “bow” gloves by Cornelia James.
Later, the royal couple attended a private dinner in benefit of the American Friends of The Royal Foundation at Gramercy Park in NYC. Kate changed into a black lace dress and black heels:
The black lace dress is from Beulah London’s spring 2015 collection, it’s the Amara style. The “fit and flare” style dress is available to pre-order now for £650.
Here’s how Beulah London describe the dress:
The Beulah simple fit and flare dress is a classic staple dress from our Spring Summer collection. The flattering, feminine silhouette made from intricate detailed lace will make the perfect outfit for every occasion this season.
Kate wore her Stuart Weitzman’s “Power” pumps in black suede.
The shoe is still available at Stuart Weitzman USA in a number of colours and styles, ranging in price between $231 -$355.
