Catherine Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, stepped out for her first "solo" public appearance, visiting an art exhibit in London.
(CBS) Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, will soon have a new pair of shoes.

Prince William's wife will stop by England's De Montfort University on March 8. During her visit, six lucky students will present her with their own creations of shoes designed especially for her, reports the U.K.s Daily Mail.

The students take a footwear-design course at the Leicester-based university. As part of the contest, six sketches will be presented to Duchess Kate when she visits the school next month with Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Phillip. Kate, 30, will choose her favorite, which will then be produced for her to wear.

The designs, created by students aged 20-27, range from pink-and-nude heels to shoes inspired by Chinese New Year.
