Kate Middleton has done it again. The black and gray Max Mara studio dress she wore for Tuesday's engagement at London's Hope House has reportedly sold out. In a Feb. 20 report, E! Online reveals the long sleeved jersey dress from the 2011 collection sold out within hours. The dress, which is no longer sold in stores, was on sale for $195 at the time Kate wore it -- very likely making it even more attractive to Kate wannabes.
As Examiner.com previously reported, the Max Mara wrap dress is not officially a maternity style. However, given the stretch material, wrap style, and self-tie belt it makes for a great transitional piece for expectant mothers. Despite the chilly temperatures, the Duchess did the world -- and photographers -- a favor and skipped a coat putting her baby bump on full display. All eyes were on Kate's bump and her style choice during Tuesday's event since it was her first official public engagement of the year.
Prince William's wife won't make another public appearance until March 5 when she will make three stops during a solo all-day tour of Grimsby. The Lincolnshire town is a port and fishing city and she is scheduled to visit a fire station, a fishing heritage center, and a university. The type of visit could mean Kate's style picks may be more on the casual side and there's always the possibility the fashion-conscious Duchess could change her clothes mid-day.
