Hot Spot! The Duchess of Cambridge debuted gorgeous new layers and a fresh summer ‘bronde’ hairstyle as she chatted with the BBC. The mom of three was keen to share her support for a new initiative focusing on language and literacy for children under aged five. The Tiny Happy People program offers parents a platform to learn more about early development and cultivate their children’s communication skills.

The Duchess of Cambridge endorsed the national launch of the Tiny Happy People program in a new black and white polka dot dress by Emilia Wickstead. The ‘Anatola’ captures 1980s Italian nostalgia and features a floaty crepe silhouette which is cinched with a buckled belt, then falls to a knife-pleated midi-length skirt and fastens with discreet buttons. The dress is inspired by Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather movie trilogy.

The polka print dress quickly sold out but the Anatola is available in other styles.

For the appearance, Kate also wore her camel Castaner 80 Carina suede wedges.

Kate’s lace-up wedges were the perfect choice to pair with her new belted dress.

The duchess also enjoyed some laughs during the interview.
