On July 8th 2015, the Duchess of Cambridge wore the red L.K. Bennett Cayla dress during a visit to Wimbledon with her husband, William.
The two sat in the Royal Box to watch Britain’s Andy Murray play against Canada’s Vasek Pospisil on Centre Court.
Typically, Kate is known for wearing white or cream dresses to Wimbledon, so her red dress was a stand out look!
About the L.K. Bennett Cayla dress:
The red midi dress features elbow length sleeves, seams that run down the front of the dress and a full skirt. L.K. Bennett say the Cayla is your “go-to dress for that special occasion.”
Here’s how L.K. Bennett describe the dress on their website –
Cayla is designed to flatter. Team with a simple blazer or cardigan and keep the colour to a minimum, think classic patent black courts and a box clutch.
The Cayla dress is made from polyester. The colour style is described as “Cardinal Red”. It retailed for £250 (which is approximately $388 USD).
UPDATE: Dress is back in stock
The original red Cayla dress sold out within four hours of Kate debuting it at Wimbledon, showing that the “Kate Effect” is still in force. L.K. Bennett reissued the dress pretty quickly. As of 6th August 2015, the dress is available in most sizes on the company’s UK/International website.
Will L.K. Bennett reissue the Cayla dress for US/Canada?
L.K. Bennett encourage people to click the “notify me when available” button to register your interest on this page. I’m pretty certain US and Canadian citizens can buy from the UK/International L.K. Bennett website – but be wary of customs fees. It’s probably best to call your nearest L.K. Bennett store for advice. From what I hear, they’re pretty accommodating and will help you get the dress.
