After months locked in the house, today brings us a Kate twofer. (In case you missed this morning’s McQueen [and/or Wills], I am here for you.) First McQueen, now Jenny Packham — it’s like she’s cycling through her own greatest hits today, to make up for her absence.
I will be interested to get everyone’s take on this dress. I really like aspects of it — the color, the fabulous draping — and I appreciate that it’s DIFFERENT. From the waist up, I think it’s a total smash. I think the shorter underskirt was perhaps a compromise in the name of modesty that was considered a more interesting and creative choice than just making the slit less aggressive, which I appreciate, and I like that she’s going leggy. I am not in general a fan of the high/low skirt, so ultimately this might not be my personal number one jam. This whole slideshow is basically my waffling on my feelings, so know that I could probably be talked around, if you want to try. JUST TRY.
PS: ALL HAIL THE OPEN TOED SHOE. Bonus points for fab new jewelry.
