Afterwards, the Duke & Duchess boarded a private jet to begin their two-day visit to Paris. Kate did not change outfits for her arrival to meet with François Hollande.
For shoes, Kate wore a new pair from Emmy London, their ‘Rebecca’ style in greenery suede. Currently available for $545 on their website in grey suede. The green suede color can be ordered by contacting their store in London. Many thanks to Kate’s Closet for this ID.
For the evening’s reception, the Duchess changed into a new Alexander McQueen cocktail dress with a black leather bow belt, new Gianvito Rossi D’orsay pumps, Balenciaga earrings and Cartier watch.

A closer look at the Duchess attending the reception at the British Embassy.
Kate’s new ultra chic Gianvito Rossi D’orsay are a nod to French style. Available online at ($795) NetaPorter and ($800) Lane Crawford. The pumps are described on the website as, “These Gianvito Rossi pumps demonstrate traditional Italian craftsmanship and designs in a d’Orsay silhouette. Softly structured from black suede, this pointed-toe pair is finished with a buckle ankle strap for a slender sculpt.”

For the gala dinner, the Duchess chose one of her favorite British designers, Jenny Packham.
The icy blue gown is a beautiful choice for Kate and the matching Jenny Packham clutch perfectly complimented her ($690) Oscar de la Renta pumps which remain available in several sizes.
