Kate Middleton Hides Baby Bump in Sheer, Whimsical Outfit

A demure dress for a duchess? Not for this expecting royal. PHOTOS: Kate Middleton Dazzles in Body-Hugging Lace Opting to give her latest maternity wear some playful flair, mother-to-be Kate Middleton attended the Place2Be Wellbeing in Schools Awards ceremony in London wearing an unusual, head-turning outfit. The 32-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her second child, covered her baby bump in stylish separates, including a sheer polka-dot peplum top by Hobbs and a metallic blue skirt by favorite designer Jenny Packham. Middleton completed the look with a gold-buckled belt to cinch her waist, matching gold chandelier earrings and black heels. And of course, she put her perfect mane in a partial updo to showcase her flawless features. “As the Royal Patron of Place2Be, Middleton was on hand at the organization’s first awards ceremony to meet the young finalists for the Child Champion Award,” reports US Weekly. “She later presented the award to a young person who has overcome his or her own struggles to help others.” PHOTOS: Yowza! Kate Middleton Makes a Splash in See-Through Dress This probably won’t be the last time Middleton will stir headlines just for her personal style. She, along with husband Prince William, are expected to make their first-ever trip to New York City in the second week of December — where Kate is sure to display more of her fashionable maternity wear. The couple is also expected to attend events supporting their beloved charities. In the meantime, see Middleton’s latest look for yourself below:
