Kate Middleton Steals The Show In A Professional Pink Ensemble During Latest Public Appearance

Fact: Anything Kate Middleton wears creates buzz. Just take the shoes she donned for Garter Day in the United Kingdom this week. The jeweled slingbacks had people wondering if the Duchess of Cambridge's footwear was inspired by her sister-in-law Meghan Markle due to her own devotion to the brand Aquazzura.

Indeed, whenever Kate chooses to sport a certain color or style, it makes news. Fans' obsession with her clothing even has a name: "The Kate Effect," which refers to how brands will sell out of a shirt or pair of shoes almost immediately upon the mom of three deigning to wear it (via Vogue).

From her casual khaki look during her tour of Belize in March, to the black-and-white gown Kate enchanted us with for the London premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick," an event during which fans couldn't help but notice the height difference between the royal and star Tom Cruise, we bow down to the fashionable future queen.

Kate's recent pink power suit is no exception to the rule that when she wears something, we immediately want to know more.

Kate Middleton goes with a tried-and-true designer

Kate Middleton's devotion to Alexander McQueen is well-documented. Not only did the fashion house design her wedding gown, but for the Duchess of Cambridge's 40th birthday, she turned to the brand again for her birthday portraits (via Vogue). From shoes to coat dresses, Alexander McQueen is a go-to label for the royal (via Hello!). In fact, Kate is even known to rewear outfits by the designer, recently doing just that for Trooping the Colour to kick off the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (via WWD).

In another instance of the fashionista selecting an ensemble by Alexander McQueen, Kate wowed in a pink pants suit by the label in a fetching, soft shade while speaking to British government officials about a cause near and dear to her heart: mental health and children (via Daily Mail).

While there's no doubt legions of Kate lovers will adore this latest polished ensemble, we must point out that there is bound to be some sticker shock, with the blazer costing over $2,000 alone. Meanwhile, royal watchers will also likely be smitten with the matching suede heels Kate selected for her meeting, as well as the stark white top she paired with the designer suit.

Kate Middleton has worn pink previously

While many Kate Middleton fans applauded the good work that she's doing with mental health and kids, several followers on Twitter were also on hand to share their compliments for her pink Alexander McQueen suit, with one person lauding the look as "lovely." Another fan of the Duchess of Cambridge enthused, "I love this shade of pink on Kate, it looks so good! She is beautiful."

As fans raved about Kate's "Pretty in Pink" moment, it's worth noting that this seems to be the color of the week. As Today points out, the royal's mom, Carole Middleton, also picked a pink dress for Royal Ascot, a traditional horse race that follows Garter Day.

And, although we may not typically associate Kate with the color pink, can you believe she wore the very dress her mom donned this week previously? True story. The royal also has stepped out in the flattering hue many other times in the past, perhaps most notably when she wore that glimmering hot pink gown in Belize this year.
