Kate Middleton just wore the most surprising designer

We’re loving her new look

The Duchess of Cambridge is a big champion of UK designers, sporting their outfits whenever she has an official engagement.

She wore an Alexander McQueen dress to her sister Pippa’s wedding, and a Temperley London gown to a National Portrait Gallery fundraiser.

Heck, she’s even a fan of the high street, wearing £45 Monsoon wedges and Superga trainers on a regular basis.

So we were a bit taken aback when she wore this surprising designer for a visit to the V&A exhibition in London.

You see, there’s nothing more British than that museum, however in a drastic departure from her usual go-to designers, Kate opted for a Gucci dress.

That’s right, the bold Italian luxury house behind Emma Stone and Katy Perry’s yellow floral dress.

Now the Duchess did opt for one of the more demure designs, a pretty tweed dress embellished with gold buttons and Gucci’s signature blue and red trim – which is still available to buy FYI.

She accessorised it simply with a red clutch bag and black pumps and we love it. A new look for Kate? Watch this space…
