Kate Middleton Shines In A Bold And Blue Look For The Royal Ascot

Much of the royal family looked very blue, indeed.

Kate Middleton showed off her best and bluest look at the Royal Ascot on Tuesday, which she attended alongside Prince William, Queen Elizabeth and many other members of the royal family. 

The five-day event, which is one of the most fashionable celebrations of the year, has strict style guidelines for the hundreds of thousands that make the pilgrimage to Ascot, England, each year. 

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a gorgeous blue dress by Elie Saab with sheer sleeves and a delicate tulle skirt. She accessorized with matching blue heels and a hat by one of her go-to’s, Philip Treacy.

Blue appeared to be the most popular color for Day 1, as Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Zara Tindall and Queen Elizabeth all choose blue as well.
