Since 2019, Kate Middleton has been wearing this purple Gucci pussy-bow silk-crepe blouse backward. Or so many have come to believe!
When she donned the look in March 2019 at London’s Henry Fawcett Children’s Center, that’s when the debate first set stage.
Middleton visited this Children’s Center to oversee how it’s supporting children, parents, and guardians.
She showed up to the event wearing this now-classic purple blouse and sat down with fellow parents and their children to bond. This session was run to help the parents better understand their children’s cues and become more confident in their parenting approaches.
A mother of three, the Duchess talked about her son with the parents and bonded with all the moms.
So, is the Blouse on Backwards or Not?
She’s been seen wearing this blouse “backward” on more occasions. She likes to have the bow and the buttons for this blouse in front instead of in the back as this luxury brand shows the model wearing it.
Here’s the Catch, Though.
This listing on Nordstrom shows the same Gucci pussy-bow silk-crepe blouse the same way she’s wearing it.
So, the question arises: is the Duchess indeed wearing it backward and making a “fashion statement,” or is it just a versatile blouse that can be worn either way?
Kate Middleton is known to recycle her outfits, unlike other royals. There’s undoubtedly pressure among that class of individuals always to have new outfits and fashion choices that align with trends.
However, Middleton displays boldness in her everyday fashion choices because while she lives in this world where women are meant to be very “proper,” she chooses to stand out and enjoy her fashion choices for herself rather than for society.
She balances the color of her blouse well with darker bottoms to even out the brighter purple.
