Kate Tops Off Her Stylish Royal Tour in a Michael Kors Coat

Duchess Catherine‘s final ensemble of the Royal Tour was a major first for Michael Kors. Attending solemn services commemorating Anzac Day, Kate wore an indigo twill jacquard swing coat from Kors’ Spring 2014 collection, marking the first time she’s worn a piece from the American designer’s eponymous label.

“Coat check – Kate Middleton looks perfectly polished in this piece from our Spring ’14 Collection,” Kors Tweeted Thursday morning along with a photo.

Though it was Kate’s first Kors moment, First Lady Michelle Obama is often seen wearing designs by the former Project Runway judge. At a a pre-Oscar party in L.A. last month, Lupita Nyong’o wore a dress made of the same indigo and white twill material as the Duchess’ coat.

Pinned just below Kate’s lapel was a poppy brooch given to her by the wife of soldier Ben Roberts-Smith, recipient of the Victoria Cross, Australia’s highest honor. A Hatmaker by Jonathan Howard “Boutton” fascinator — the silhouette of the flying bow trim on the “Duchess Navy” blue topper was compared by some to a pair of bunny ears — Alexander McQueen suede heels and the Stuart Weitzman “Muse” clutch completed the look. And of course her hair was styled perfectly in her signature loose waves.

Once the ceremony had concluded, Kate and William headed to Canberra airport, where the Duchess doffed her hat, scooped up Prince George — himself looking sharp in pink overalls and a red cardigan — and waved goodbye.

I’m so sad! I’m definitely going to miss the daily fashion updates…and seeing Prince George out and about! Despite their royal status, Will and Kate always seem so down to earth and personable.

Kate Middleton has been so enjoyable to watch in Australia with her non-stop parade of classic fashions.

She’s just the best. I’m going to miss the Will/Kate/George updates and daily pics. They’re fun and a breath of fresh air compared to the typical negative news.

She is such a classy person and a positive role model. She looks beautiful in everything but my favourite outfit was the white formal dress she wore a few days ago. Just stunning!!!!
