The face that launched a thousand ships? Maybe. What Kate Middleton is, definitely, is the soon-to-be-newest member of The Firm. For one of their first public appearances together as an engaged couple Prince William and Kate Middleton chose an event on the Welsh island of Anglesey, where Wills works as a rescue pilot and where the newlyweds will try to melt into the background after their April wedding. We'll see how well that works out for them.
Anyhoo, the future Mrs. Prince William (or Catherine, as I suppose we're to call her) was all smiles despite the blustery wind. Showing that she's a frugal fashionista Kate recycled the handsome Katherine Hooker military-style "London Contrast" Shetland herringbone overcoat she was sporting. KMidd was photographed in the then-longer coat at the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2006.
We also really like Kate's chic brown velvet fascinator, which featured pheasant feathers (What can we say? We love feathers almost as much as we love chocolate--hey, we said almost!) and the insignia of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, according to the Daily Mail. The fascinator is from Wiltshire-based Vivien Sheriff Millinery and appears to have been in Kate's possession for some time and not made expressly for the occassion.
Kate's earrings are the Kiki Mcdonough Citrine Drops, her clutch by L.K. Bennett and her brown suede ankle boots by Russell and Bromley.
