Now that the wedding dress is no longer a mystery, style watchers are eager to see what stunners Kate Middleton chooses for her highly-anticipated North American tour with hubby Prince William. Beginning July 8, the young royals will spend three days schmoozing in California, and Rachel Zoe has the perfect outfits in mind for the newly-dubbed Duchess. You listening, Buckingham Palace?
For Kate's first ever visit to the U.S., Rachel sketched a plunging top with billowy sleeves, paired with a sleek peek-a-boo slit skirt to show off the princess' toned gams. "At first glance, this look appears to be a dress, but it is actually two pieces — a maxiskirt and white blouse tucked in...beyond!," Rachel tells Women's Wear Daily. "It's glamorous, Boho and sexy without being too revealing. Perfect for a beach party in Malibu."
That's not exactly on the newlyweds' agenda, but charity events, a red carpet, and polo match made the cut. Nevertheless, Rachel has another low-key meets high-fashion look in mind for the former Miss Middleton. "This ensemble to me is the epitome of London cool mixed with Euro glamour and sophistication. You can dress the tuxedo jacket down for day with a pair of shorts and gladiators...a chic look for a day of shopping on Rodeo Drive followed, of course, by lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge."
