An evening rain forced the 120 guests at a Celebration of Youth barbecue inside Rideau Hall (the residence of the Governor-General and Kate & Wills home during their stay in Ottawa) Thursday with William and Kate still mingling with ease among the crowd inside.
The barbecue was held to honour 100 Canadians under the age of 35 for their dedicated service both at home and abroad and it included athletes, business people and community leaders from across Canada.
Tonight Kate wore a black and white Issa bird print wrap dress with black Pied a Terre Ivy Canvas slingback wedges (£75 and sold out). Kate has worn this dress on previous occassions such as in 2006 and the day before her wedding.
The black wedges were seen last summer when Kate watched William play polo in Tetbury.
Kate kept her jewelry simple wearing a gold pendant necklace and small gold egg shaped earrings.
Kate's earrings (above) could possibly be by designer Vinnie Day. I have found pair on their website that have similar patterns. www.vinnieday.com/
Silver Simple Single Bali Earring with Vinnie Day logo leaf £64. These come in gold plate too £80.
