Princess Kate Channels Jackie O — Again!
The royal mom, who arrived in the Netherlands on Tuesday for her very first royal solo trip abroad, stunned in a pale cornflower blue Catherine Walker & Co. wool crepe suit.
The tailored jacket and pencil skirt bespoke design is reminiscent of the classic Jackie O style — down to the big and bold buttons and wide collar.
And the similarities don’t stop at the clothes! Kate tied her sleek brunette locks back into a low chignon, which accented her pearl earrings.
All that’s missing is Jackie’s go-to hat, which Kate perfected in July when she memorably channeled the fashion icon in a grey and black zig-zag patterned coat and a pillbox hat by one of her favorite London milliners, Lock & Co.
The pillbox style hat gained popularity in the 1960s after the former first lady chose to wear one to her husband’s presidential inauguration in 1961. Since then, many royal women have favored the look, including the late Princess Diana.
Kate chose a similar hat stepping off the plane in New Zealand for the royal tour in 2014, when she wore a red pillbox hat by Gina Foster.
