What happens when two of the world’s most stylish fashion icons collide? A meeting made in sartorial heaven – that’s what!
This week marks the two year anniversary of The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s first official trip to New York, when she dazzled the world in stunning Seraphine maternity clothes. AND when Kate Middleton made the acquaintance of Jenna Lyons – The Woman Who Dresses America.
With so much style in one room, we’re still reeling from the result!
Jenna wore a stunning sequinned top over a chic pinstriped shirt, rocking her signature slicked back hair and geek-chic glasses. While The Duchess looked effortlessly glamorous in our Black Turtleneck Vanessa Maternity Dress, which she styled with a stunning Cartier necklace.
Fashion Designer Jenna Lyons is the Creative Director & President of US fashion giant J Crew, and also holds a coveted position on the board of directors on the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
The Duchess of Cambridge inspires women around the world with her grace, poise and impeccable personal style, and is well known for her uncanny ability to make the dresses she wears sell out within minutes. Our Fuchsia Knot Front Maternity Dress, which Kate Middleton wore in the first official pictures with Prince George is the perfect example!
When it comes to fashion influence, the two are fairly evenly matched! The Duchess’s classic elegance and Jenna’s edgy chic made for a fantastic fashion contrast when they met at New York’s NeueHouse at the Creativity is GREAT Reception. Both women were in attendance at the event to celebrate British talent in the creative industries, including music, film, fashion and art.
