Kate Middleton Paired a Patterned Blouse with a High Ponytail

The duchess switched up her signature style to take in a special art exhibit.

Kate Middleton traded in her typical monochromatic solids for a patterned blouse at an art event on Thursday. The Duchess of Cambridge, who has an art history degree from St. Andrew's University, made a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London to take in the Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution exhibition, where over 200 bejeweled objects created by Carl Fabergé are on display.

And Middleton got a little artsy with her fashion choices. The duchess opted for a blue, red, and teal paisley-patterned, pussy bow top by Ralph Lauren, which she paired with black trousers. She accessorized the long-sleeved, '70s-inspired statement shirt with a navy blue snakeskin-embossed leather belt, as well as gold hoop earrings and a black face mask. Her signature bouncy curls were pulled off her face and into a tight sleek ponytail.

The exhibit — which housed Fabergé's famed Imperial Easter Eggs collection — also included three items donated by Kate's grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth: the Colonnade Egg, Basket of Flowers Egg, and the Mosaic Egg. The duchess carefully and closely observed the pieces while learning about the legendary artist's work.

With the holidays right around the corner, the royal has a busy couple of weeks ahead of her. In fact, next week, she's set to host a Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey that will honor the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we're bound to see her walking into St Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk on Christmas Day.
