The Duchess of Cambridge loves her Cézanne Great Plains dress and just a week after the company released the dress in a new ebony/navy print, Kate has been spotted wearing the frock while out and about with Prince George. These photos were taken by a photographer on Twitter under the handle: @PolticalPics.
The Duchess was snapped smiling as police officers near her London home showed Prince George their motorbikes. The little prince was doubtless delighted to get to sit on the motorcycles, although since Kate won't let him ride a horse yet, I think motorbikes are ways off for him yet.
The sighting took place after Kate and George had watched the helicopter leave KP. I imagine the exciting comings and goings of the heli are a favorite past-time of the little prince. The photographer described the event:
I was walking to Notting Hill from Kensington to go to the gym when I saw a helicopter taking off at the back of Kensington Palace. I noticed George and his mother watching Princess Anne take off. The Princess was wearing a Navy uniform. After the helicopter took off, the prince had a go on a policeman's motorbike for quite a while. Kate was really smiley. There were about three or four hundred people watching. It was so lovely.
As discussed last week, the Duchess first wore the dress in a red colorway while visiting Grimsby. The dress complemented her rusty Hobbs coat perfectly on that occasion, although she never took the coat off to give us a better view of the dress.
It is always great when you have a print that really works well with other pieces in your closet, and this dress is something of a staple for Kate. The Duchess bought the dress in "pine" and wore it at Christmas of this year, but one of my eagle-eyed readers pointed out that Kate might have worn it under her Reiss "Angel" coat in 2012 on a visit to St. George's Park. I searched around for a photo and sure enough, Kate is wearing the Cezanne here:
So, when Kate wore it again on Christmas morning, it was not the first time after all, but it certainly looked gorgeous with that SportMax coat.
Great Plains rereleased the dress just last week in this new blue and grey print. Although Kate has been pictured wearing the dress casually and on its own, I am not surprised Kate snapped this up.
The print will work very well with many of Kate's cream coats as well as several of her blue pieces, thanks to the dress's navy hues. It would be lovely styled with a grey coat, as suggested on the Great Plains website.
Happily for fans of the Duchess's style, this versatile dress is still available at Great Plains. You can purchase it for £75 here. The Duchess attended the Queen's final garden party of the season today, and that post is up next!
