This Color Combo Sounds Like a Fashion Faux Pas, Until You See Kate Middleton Wearing It
We'll forgive you if you're still catching your breath after stumbling upon Kate Middleton's latest look. The duchess stopped us all in our tracks when she stepped out at the annual Portrait Gala in London on Tuesday in a deep-green-colored lace Temperley gown. As is Kate's M.O., she walked the line between sophistication and subtly attention getting, pairing the beautiful dress with gold heels and a coordinating clutch. But it's the earrings that will make you say, "OMG" — and not just because of the stunning jewels on these Kiki McDonough stunners — but more so, because of their color.
Most fashion girls ascribe to the unwritten rule that red and green are best worn together only around the Christmas holidays; but Kate just proved rules don't apply when the look is this good. The subtle berry hue on her earrings provides a bright contrast to the rich emerald color of her gown. And with that, we'll just say, like white jeans after Labor Day, style rules are meant to be broken, twisted, and worn any way you want.
Read on to see the duchess's rule-breaking moment as it's meant to be seen — up close and from every angle.
