Kate Middleton wears $14 earrings and leopard print dress: how to buy
A purchase at a discount! While Duchess Kate has plenty of multi-carat, multi-million dollar crown jewels in her collection, she just released a pair of earrings that cost â wait â $22! Oh, and we should mention that they are always available.
The 40-year-old royal, who was visiting Shout, a text messaging organization for mental health, has become quite a big fan of the ASOS Earrings. In fact, she’s worn the hoops a handful of times in recent months. And if history is any indication, they’ll sell out fast, so get your pick, ASAP.
the Hold on the author’s earrings aren’t the only item of her look available in stores. Her ba&sh Betty Buckle belt is currently in stock at Bloomingdales and retails for $135.
As for her dress? Although the leopard print number isn’t currently available, we’ve got all the details so you can set your notifications when the time comes. The chiffon midi dress is by Derek Lam 10 Crosby – and it’s no surprise it caught the eye of the royal. It manages to make the animal print look very sophisticated.
Of course, the royal also showed off her stunning engagement ring at the event. The sapphire stone originally belonged to Princess Diana but was given to Duchess Kate in 2010 when she got engaged to Prince William.
Unlike her ASOS earrings, the ring is priceless. The same can be said for a handful of his other jewels, many of which were passed down from his late mother-in-law or lent to him by the Queen.
More recently, the mother-of-three paid tribute to both women in her 40th anniversary portraits. In two of the photos, which were taken by paolo roversi, the Duchess wore Princess Diana’s Collingwood earrings and three-row bracelet.
The diamond and pearl stunners were given to the Princess of Wales as a wedding gift by Collingwood jewellers. The pearl bracelet, meanwhile, was designed for the late royal in 1988 by Nigel Milne.
Duchess Kate inherited the jewelry as Princess Diana requested in a ‘letter of wishes’ that her jewelry be split between Prince Harry and Prince William so that “their wives may, in due time, have it or use it”.
In the final portrait, which featured the Duchess of Cambridge in a bright red Alexander McQueen dress, she stunned in Queen’s Diamond Frame earrings.
