Kate Middleton does Canada Day 2011

Happy Canada Day, Canada!
Princess Catherine showed up in her white Reiss dress - the one she wore for her iconic official engagement portrait, shot by Mario Testino. At least the hat was new, a structured fascinator in "Canada Red", complete with maple leaves. A little cartoonish, but cute. Red court shoes, a maple leaf brooch and the gold medallion necklace (worn last night also) completed the outfit. The only odd touch was the Asian-inspired Anya Hindmarch clutch, complete with gold tassel. Maybe, just maybe, it was a nod to the large Asian population in Canada. If so, then that's good. But if she grabbed it just because it was red, then I say it's a touch bizarre and doesn't go with the rest of the outfit.
VERDICT: A - (the minus sign is for the bag).

Currently listed as "out of stock" on Hindmarch's website.

  1. I agree on the bag. She looks so polished and the bag is too casual for me.
