Kate Middleton wore a vintage Oscar de la Renta dress which featured a ruffled collar tonight. The Duchess of Cambridge was pictured arriving alongside Prince William at the reception, hosted by Tanaiste Simon Coveney at Museum of Literature Island.
Fans and style watchers alike soon took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One person commented: “Vintage Oscar de la Renta. That is all.”
Another penned: “Oh well I am loving the cerise pink tonight!!! Gorgeous! #RoyalVisitIreland.”
This evening, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were shown the very first copy of James Joyce’s Ulysses, printed on February 2, 1922.
Earlier today, Kate was pictured wearing a khaki green belted – which was the Friel Utility Jacket, currently on sale for £299.
Underneath, she wore a cream shirt which had a bow at the front. This garment is a Barbour x Alexa Chung design, and costs £100.
She teamed it with black skinny jeans, and knee high brown leather boots.
These were the Penelope Chilvers Long Tassel Boots, £475 – shoes which she was first spotted in more than 10 years ago.
