A rare sighting of the lesser spotted Duchess of Cambridge

There was a rare sighting of the Duchess of Cambridge this weekend, as she attended…you’ve guessed it…yet another society wedding.

Kate was attending the wedding of Harriet Colthurst and Thomas Sutton, and looked beautiful wearing a raspberry coloured lace dress by Collette Dinnigan with Prada heels. At first I thought the dress may have been another Erdum design, as it was similar in  style to the navy lace dress that she wore when she touched down in Canada.

I love Kate in this shade, it seriously enhances her colouring and highlights her brunette locks. Collette Dinnigan was an interesting choice, as she is South African born and Australian based, so, for once, Kate was not flying the flag for British fashion.

The wedding was also attended by Pippa Middleton with boyfriend Alex Loudon. In the week that she had shown some serious style credentials by being the most talked about FRower during London Fashion Week, wearing a seriously short dress for the Alice Temperley show which had everyone asking if she was sans knickers, Pippa again opted for a label with an Aussie connection. The beautiful printed dress in question was from Project D, the label by Dannii Minogue and Tabitha Webb. This was a beautiful choice which I think eclipses her previous two wedding outfits.

It was great to see Kate out and about, looking chic and elegant. Lets hope she makes a welcome return to the public eye soon!

This fabulous dress is very similar to that worn by Kate. It comes from Dorothy Perkins and costs just £35. Available at stores nationwide and at www.dorothyperkins.com.

Asos also have a version of the little red lace dress, although this is probably too racy for Kate.I can see Pippa giving this one a go though!

Other stores that are buying into the hot raspberry lace trend include A-wear and Oasis, who have very different takes on the red dress look.
