Kate Middleton Wore the Perfect Transitional Dress to Introduce the Judges of Her New Photography Project

She gave an update about her online exhibit "Hold Still" during a video call.

After nearly six months of having her royal engagements take place on Zoom, Kate Middleton has mastered the art of dressing for a video call. She successfully balances between appearing casual and polished, opting for items in her closet like a top with an interesting neckline or a cheerfully-colored sweater. Her tried and true dress code is a winning one, and she's sticking to it.

Case in point: On Sunday, the duchess hosted a video conference to introduce the judges of her Hold Still photography project wearing the perfect dress to transition from summer to fall. The breezy number featured a muted green palette, a floral pattern, and ruched sleeves. Sadly, though, it's already sold out at Zara's website.

"I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered and taken part," Kate wrote on Instagram about the project, in which more than 31,000 portraits that capture the lives and emotions of people across the U.K. during the COVID-19 pandemic have been submitted. "And a big thank you to my fellow judges. I hugely appreciate the time and dedication that they have shown towards the project." The final 100 entries will be presented in an online exhibit next month. "It's been great," she says in the clip from her call. "It's going to be so difficult to edit this down."

On Saturday, Kate gave royal fans a sneak peek at the digital exhibition with a small selection of photos hand-picked by the duchess and her team. "The photography project was focused on three core themes — Helpers and Heroes, Your New Normal, and Acts of Kindness," she revealed on Instagram, and according to People, each image was assessed based on the emotion and experience, rather than the photographic quality or technical expertise.

Upon launching the initiative, Kate said, “We’ve all been struck by some of the incredible images we’ve seen which have given us an insight into the experiences and stories of people across the country. Some desperately sad images showing the human tragedy of this pandemic and other uplifting pictures showing people coming together to support those more vulnerable.”

Hold Still will debut on Monday, Sept. 14.
