The Duchess of Cambridge opted to wear a cream dress made by an aptly named designer as she hosted an event to thank those who worked on her Hold Still photography project.

Photography is very dear to Kate’s heart. Rather than hiring a photographer to take official portraits of her family, she has a tradition of taking her photos herself.

So it seems fitting that the Duchess chose to wear an outfit from a London-based label called Self-Portrait as she thanked those involved in her lockdown photography project on Wednesday September 22.

The tailored cream buckle and chiffon midi dress costs £ 400 and is available for pre-order in sizes 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14.

Kate’s dress features a fitted tweed blazer bodice contrasted with a pleated chiffon midi skirt, edged with mesh lace for an ethereal finish.

Kate kicked off the Hold Still project last year, when she asked the public to submit photographs to capture what the UK looked like during coronavirus lockdowns.

There followed an exhibition featuring some of the photos, which were later published in the book, Hold Still: A portrait of our nation in 2020.

The Duchess of Cambridge is a fan of tailored blazers and had worn another style of belted tweed the day before as she met relatives of the Windermere children to find out how their loved ones’ stay in Cumbria after WWII has made them feel helped to continue to build successful lives in UK.
