ShoeperStar: Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge in Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ at the National Portrait Gallery

The Duchess of Cambridge at the National Portrait Gallery for the Lucien Freud Portraits Exhibition

I know this is a blog about shoes rather than clothes (although that’s never stopped me before, has it?), but I just wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take a quick moment to tell you all how much I love The Duchess of Cambridge’s 50s style coat dress here, would I?

One of my favourite looks yet on her, I think, and I’ve been a fan of quite a few of ’em! The dress is by Jesiré, which no longer exists, sadly, so although I did have a quick look online for it, I can’t help you there – Kate’s dress must be a vintage piece, or one she already owned. I CAN help you with the shoes, however, which are Jimmy Choo’s ‘Cosmic’ pumps, currently available at Net-a-Porter, although given that every other shoe The Duchess has worn has sold out almost instantly, these may not be there for long. Will the “Kate Effect” work on a pair of basic black pumps? We’ll soon find out, but the good news is that even if it does, you’ll be able to find plenty of much less expensive options if you’re looking for something similar.
