Royal Tour of North America - Day 2: Kate in Red & White for Canada Day

Red and white are the colours of love and we L-O-V-E this outfit on Kate. Sure the colour scheme, pin and Maple Leaf fascinator are a bit literal, but we think the Duchess looks trim and chic in her recycled Reiss dress. Yes, that famous white Reiss engagement picture dress:

Word has it that Kate was invited to borrow whatever selection of the Queen's jewels her heart desired for this tour. Talk about kid in a candy store. We have a feeling we won't be seeing many dazzlers or tiaras on this tour, that's not where Kate is headed image-wise at the moment, but we did get to see the first loaned piece on Canada Day.

A similar fascinator from Locke + Co.

The on-loan Maple Leaf brooch was worn by QEII (then Princess Elizabeth) during a 1951 trip to Canada. A nice way for Kate to bring her grandmother-in-law into the conversation. Kate's red hot fascinator is by Sylvia Fletcher at Lock + Co and the fab fan clutch is from Anya Hindmarch. Kate's red pumps? They're the Hobbs Albini Square Cut Court Shoes.

Kate also accessoried with the Kiki Mcdonough diamond and topaz Grace earrings and a mystery diamond-encrusted disc necklace, a great picture of which we found on the Jewels of the World message board. It appears that the necklace has the words "BOND" stamped on it. Kate was seen wearing the same necklace in 2010 at a polo match. Any idea of where it might be from?

~ Happy Canada Day ~
