The sapphire dress is from Reiss, a popular retailer in the UK that has reported a doubling in profits, thanks to Kate’s loyalty to the brand. They refer to it as the “Kate Effect,” similar to Mrs. Obama’s effect on the success of J.Crew.

Kate styled the dress just like her mother with a thick black belt, black heels and a matching clutch.
