Kate Sports Black DVF Coat at Remembrance Sunday Ceremony, Bonds with Camilla

via The Daily Mail

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen at the Remembrance Sunday ceremony looking suitably sombre (and chic) in a black, double-breasted Diane von Furstenberg coat and Jane Corbett hat worn pushed forward on her head. Kate hung with Camilla and Sophie of Wessex on the balcony of the Foreign Office, which overlooks the Cenotaph where the Queen and the Duchesses' husbands laid wreaths.

Kate and Camilla seem to be getting on like a house on fire with the Duchess of Cornwall offering advice and support to the newly minted Duchess of Cambridge. Apparently the advice extends further than just suggestions as to how best to adjust to life in the royal fishbowl and includes--ahem--some beauty tips. (Camilla is said to have turned Kate on to £165 facials from Deborah Miller that are billed as "non-surgical facelifts"). We're not Camilla haters, but we have to say that she's not exactly the first one we'd turn to for knowledge on beautification and anti-aging. Just sayin'.

Kate's wool DVF "Lio" coat is from 2008 and features interesting rock-like faceted black buttons, as well as eye grabbing soutache detailing on the collar and cuffs. You can't see it here, but the bottom of the coat is pleated, which lends itself to a much fuller and feminine silhouette. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Kate's eyebrows and eyeliner, which appear to be the same thickness and color.
