No doubt the designers at Gucci put a lot of thought into how their creations should look. But at the end of the day, the wearer is entitled to put their own spin on things.
And the Duchess of Cambridge certainly had a different take on the label’s £790 (about R15 000) blouse yesterday – seemingly wearing it back to front.
The purple silk-crepe pussy-bow shirt has a row of small buttons down the back, according to the Gucci website. But Kate noticeably put hers on with the buttons at the front.
The switch meant the seams on the shoulders and buttons on the cuffs didn’t fall exactly as they should – and the bow was pulled round her neck and fastened looser and lower.
Whether this was by accident or design wasn’t clear – and Kensington Palace weren’t commenting.
