Duchess Kate in Red Marchesa at the ’42nd Street’ Opening: Cute Or Cloying?

Posted on the 05 April 2017 by Sumithardia

I’m always a little bit surprised that the Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t wear red more often, because it really suits her. I think she tends to favor blues, greens and greys because she believes those colors bring out her eyes, plus those colors coordinate with her sapphire engagement ring. But red is really flattering on her. These are photos of Kate at the opening of the musical revival 42nd Street, which is just starting in London’s West End. The opening night was a fundraiser for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), for which Kate serves as a royal patron.
For the evening out, Kate went solo – no William! – but she seemed fine with it. She wore a new frock by… Marchesa! Which is just so… bad/obvious. I mean, the dress itself is okay, but I just feel preconditioned to loathe everything from Marchesa, because the dresses usually look so cheap. While Marchesa is considered an American line, it was founded by a Brit: Georgina Chapman, wife of Harvey Weinstein. So Kate probably thought, “Eh, good enough.” This dress is from Marchesa’s Notte Resort 2017 line and the fabric is called “honeycomb.” It retails for $1,195, which seems about what I would expect for this kind of dress from Marchesa.
Some nice stuff: I always think Kate’s clothes are so poorly tailored and I always think Marchesa dresses are so poorly tailored, so it’s fascinating to me that this dress actually looks like it was properly tailored for Kate’s figure. Look, there are no weird bulges, no nonsensical sleeve puffs, no oddly draped tulle. Maybe Kate is actually the perfect Marchesa model. I also appreciate the skirt length here – this is a full-skirted tea-length and while the skirt seems a bit stiff, the effect is very “1950s Society Gal Goes To Broadway!” Which fits with the event. Such a theme-dresser, our Kate.
