Kate Middleton seems to have her own unique way of styling her purple Gucci blouse. The Duchess of Cambridge wore the pussy-bow blouse during a recent Q&A for her early years campaign on Instagram November 28, and earlier for a visit to the Henry Fawcett Children’s Center in March 2019 – but fans and publications noted that Catherine – she wore the blouse the reverse of how it appeared on the runway and on the retailer’s websites.
First seen in March 2019 from a fan who tweeted, “It’s the end of the day and I just found myself wearing my pants backwards, which is very interesting because a Kate Middleton recently wore her Gucci blouse backwards. I got it right, the same mistake as a PRINCESS, “the astute observation was later taken up by Marie Claire and hustle and bustle.
It appears that the purple pussy bow blouse from Gucci’s Resort 2019 show (pictured below) originally appeared on the catwalk with the buttons attached to the back and is still listed on Net-a-Porter with the original design. The Duchess, on the other hand, decided to wear the blouse back to front for two public appearances, which signals to us that she wears her blouses how she wants – how she should. Since Alessandro Michele started designing for Gucci, the fashion house has encouraged making pieces your own and styling them in unique and quirky ways. Maybe the blouse is a two-in-one creation and can be worn both ways? Still, we love to see the Duchess play according to her own style book, and either way she wears it, the blouse looks very good on her.
