The Duchess of Cambridge was a real eye-catcher in a pair of J. Brand jeans as she played with the British Olympic team.

Kate Middleton is a self-confessed field hockey fan, having played in her school days. So as part of her role as an Olympic ambassador, she paid a visit this week to the Olympic Park to knock the ball around with Great Britain's women’s hockey squad.

She arrived in coral skin-tight jeans, blue heels and a matching blue blazer but changed into a sweatshirt and Addidas (kept on the skinny jeans) for her match. Referencing her outfit on the bright pink and blue court, she noted: "The colour of the pitch is, well, eye-catching. My trousers really clash!

The self-effacing Duchess of Cambridge confessed: "The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven't held a stick for 10 years. This is going to be so embarrassing. My brain thinks I can do all these wonderful things but my body just doesn't play ball."

It’s worth noting that the men’s and women’s British teams are ranked 4th in the world.  And even in those skinny jeans, Kate managed to score a goal. Not only that, but her J Brand 811 mid-rise twill skinny jeans are also setting a colorful denim trend. The coral jeans are available for $169 in the U.S. and are described on the Neiman Marcus website thusly:

"J Brand Jeans takes your look beyond the blue in these covetable colored twill jeans. Updated with a slightly higher rise, the 811 fits slim and tucks easily into boots with no bunching.will add a splash of bold colour to your wardrobe."
