The Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear a cream dress made by a very aptly-named designer as she hosted an event to thank those who worked on her Hold Still photography project.

Photography is very close to Kate's heart. Rather than hiring a photographer to take official portraits of her family she has made a tradition of taking their photos herself. 

So it seems appropriate that the Duchess chose to wear an outfit by a London-based label called Self-Portrait as she thanked the people involved in her lockdown photography project on Wednesday 22 September.

The Cream Tailored Boucle And Chiffon Midi Dress costs £400 and is available to preorder in sizes 4, 6, 8, 12 and 14.

Kate's dress features a contrasting tailored tweed blazer bodice with a pleated chiffon midi skirt, trimmed with net lace for an ethereal finish.

Kate launched the Hold Still project last year, when she asked the public to submit photographs to capture what the United Kingdom looked like during the coronavirus lockdowns. 

There followed an exhibition featuring some of the photos, which were then published in the book, Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020.

The Duchess of Cambridge is a fan of tailored blazers and had worn another belted tweed style the day before as she met with relatives of the Windermere Children to learn about how their loved ones' time in Cumbria recuperating after World War Two helped them to go on to build successful lives in the UK.
