The Duchess of Cambridge visits the “Road To 2012: Aiming High’” exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London ahead of the Summer Olympics. Keep with the London Olympics theme, both by sporting vibrant blue and by wearing a frock by McCartney, who’s also the designer of Great Britain’s Olympic uniforms.
Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge donned a stunning electric blue shift dress as she helped open a National Portrait Gallery exhibit in London. The 1960s-inspired three-quarter sleeve dress sells for just over $800; Middleton paired it with Prada black heels. The day’s theme may have inspired Middleton’s choice in jewelry: she wore an Olympic-inspired gold necklace that featured five rings.
She is known as the Discount Duchess for her love of the High Street.
But Kate proved that even she can’t resist the allure of something gold – in the form of a £49,000 Cartier necklace though the dress is only $800.
According to royal aides, the white, yellow and rose gold necklace from the jeweller’s Trinity range has been part of her private collection for a while.
Although it was not specifically designed for the Games, Kate thought it was ‘appropriate’ to wear to the exhibition, called The Road To 2012: Aiming High.
