This is what Kate Middleton looks like after an international flight. The Duchess of Cambridge started off the first day of her North American tour by showing support for Canada in a Smythe jacket, but decided to make an in-flight outfit change into a form-fitting navy lace number from Erdem's resort collection (again showing Canada some love as Erdem is Canadian though based in London).
This must have been one of those "private agreements" she arranged with designers in advance of this press tour. Erdem's resort collection was shown May 31, which may have allowed enough time for Erdem's team to produce the dress especially for Middleton, or she may have been shown the collection in advance. Back when we were all trying to guess who was designing Middleton's wedding dress, Erdem's name was thrown into the mix. We asked him about it in March and he responded, "I mean, any mention like that is just a huge compliment. It’s so flattering! I will say that Kate is very beautiful…."
This is one of our favorite Kate Middleton looks yet. We love Erdem, and this silhouette is perfect for her. She kept the look simple, accessorizing with a nude clutch and nude patent leather L.K. Bennetts. From head-to-toe, she looks chic and fresh as a daisy. We can't wait to see what else she wears during the coming weeks.
