Kate Middleton Steps Up Her Style in Signature Red Heels

Kate Middleton

The Duchess Dazzles in Ruby Red Kate Middleton brought a burst of festive color to a formal event while welcoming South Korea’s presidential couple to London this week. The Princess of Wales greeted President Yoon Suk Yeol and First Lady Kim Keon Hee in a monochrome crimson Catherine Walker coatdress and matching Jane Walker London hat for the occasion. She completed the look with a pair of suede Gianvito Rossi pumps in a matching vibrant red hue.

The sleek 105 style stilettos added a pop of optimism to her otherwise highly formal attire. With their pointed toes, closed counters, and soaring 4.1-inch heels, the $795 Italian-made shoes provided a dynamic base for the royal’s look. Middleton, known for her penchant for re-wearing favorite items, owns this exact pair in five different colors. This time, the red suede brought out the rich tones of her coatdress to create a powerful and unified aesthetic.

The eye-catching color wasn’t the only meaningful style component, however. The Princess of Wales also donned a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings that previously belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. The subtle nod to her husband’s beloved parent added an extra layer of sentimentality and tradition to the important diplomatic occasion.

While Gianvito Rossi pumps have become a go-to for Middleton, she does like to switch up her footwear. The athletic royal also frequently dons sneakers off-duty from brands like New Balance, Adidas, and Superga. When an extra boost of height is needed, she turns to elegant heels from luxury labels Jimmy Choo, Emmy London, and Stuart Weitzman.

But for more formal events, Middleton often selects her ruby red 105s. The bold, vibrant shade reflects Her Royal Highness’ growing comfort and confidence taking sartorial risks as she continues stepping into her increasingly prominent global role. If the success of this week’s South Korean state visit is any indication, we likely haven’t seen the last of this fiery shoe in the Princess’ royal rotation. The elegant pump feels destined to become an iconic staple for Middleton for years to come.
