The Duchess of Cambridge officially debuted the royal baby bump today (Tuesday) and, of course, her style choice is grabbing headlines. For her visit to London's Hope House, Kate Middleton went for a black and gray Max Mara Studio dress from the 2011 collection, the What Kate Wore fashion blog confirms. The Duchess wore the long-sleeved wrap dress belted above her small, but obviously growing baby bump.
The dress is not officially a maternity dress, but was a good transitional choice for the first time expectant mother. It hit above her knee, was relatively loose fitting, and the belt allowed her to tie it as tight as is comfortable while accentuating her bump.
Kate is also growing in other areas as well, as most pregnant woman do. She opted to wear a cami under the v-neck wrap dress to provide a little extra coverage up top.
At 19 or 20 weeks pregnant the Duchess isn't ready to give up her heels just yet. The 31-year-old pulled out her pair of trusty black pumps as the perfect match for her gray, black and white dress.
She also accessorized with several pieces of jewelry including a diamond pendant and a pair of drop pearl earrings. Kate Middleton's gold right hand ring is also getting some attention. The blog HRH Duchess Kate reveals she's had the gold and ruby ring for several years, although she's rarely photographed wearing it.
