Loved Kate Middleton velvet shoes? We've found the best high street dupe and you won't be able to tell the difference

Step out like Kate...

How sensational did the Duchess of Cambridge look on Wednesday night? We are still overwhelmed with her latest look. Opening the Victoria and Albert Museum's new photography centre, the mother-of-three wore an embellished bouclé-tweed midi dress by Erdem which retails at £1,395. The 36-year-old royal teamed it  with a crimson belt and a selection of statement brooches as well as pair of shoulder-grazing statement earrings. But is was her shoes that we couldn't get enough of - and they were made for the autumn! Kate, wore the Jimmy Choo Romy shoes in a sharp oxblood shade and best of all, they were made in a sumptuous velvet. How gorgeous! Priced at £495 though, they aren't the cheapest item on the menu.


Kate's shoes are by Jimmy Choo, £495

But don't worry, we have found a pair that literally look EXACTLY the same, and they will set you back a cheaper £195 from L.K. Bennett - which coincidentally, is one of the royal's favourite high street stores. Holly Willoughby even wore the shoes on Monday's episode of This Morning, teaming her burgundy jumper and leather skirt with the deep raspberry velvet pumps.


£195, L.K.Bennett

Kate has been a long-time fan of high street brand L.K. Bennett, first rocking the Sledge high heel pumps in 2011. The nude staples quickly became her go-to shoes and it's easy to see why - they are comfortable, durable, and ideal if you want to add a polished tone to your outfit.
