Duchess Kate at the races

**UPDATE** It has been confirmed that Kate was wearing the Reiss Peacock dress and the LK Bennett Sledge2 shoes. Details below!

On what had to be one of the hottest days of the year here in London, the newlywed Kate stepped out in a white and nude ensemble for the Epsom derby.

Lets face it determining the dress she is wearing is going to be quite the challenge but we are putting forward two potential contenders.....the Reiss Sonia perhaps, retailing for £195?

Why? well the skirt part is very similar, both the fabric and length would match Kates outfit, plus the top part of the dress is fairly revealing which could explain why Kate teemed it with a very modest military style jacket from Joseph, the Nessie Tweed (not available for sale in cream but Selfridges do stock it in the Navy costing £460).

The second contender is the Reiss Peacock also in Cream (retailing for £195)

This has a more modest top to the dress which is in keeping with Kate's style, however, there seems to be a bit more skirt to the dress than the dress Kate is wearing.
We do know that Kate has a couple of Reiss pieces waiting in the wings so could the Sonia or the Peacock be one of them? We will be sure to let you know if we find out!

For her shoes we have two contenders both from LK Bennett

Either the Sledge shoe in Light Taupe patent leather 

Or the Sledge 2 also in Light Taupe leather but not quite so shiny!

Both retail for £175.

Kate's clutch was also from LK Bennett the Natalie (now sold out) and retails for £140.

We will be sure to update you once we get confirmation from the retailers.


  1. I love the nude shoe look. It makes every outfit look classy because it's just so simple. You can wear a nude shoe with almost any outfit and it goes perfectly!

  2. Yeah i agree with the above comment it really looks great. I love Kate!

  3. I love the Natalie clutch - every lady should own onme.
