- Kate Middleton rewore a floral Alexander McQueen gown to London’s Portrait Gala on Tuesday.
- The duchess first wore the gown to the BAFTAs in 2017, but made one subtle change that completely transformed the look this time.
- A dress in a nearly identical style is sold out on the designer’s website.
Kate Middleton re-wore a floral Alexander McQueen gown to the 2019 Portrait Gala in London on Tuesday night – but she found a subtle and smart way to change it up.
The gown – which is sold out in a similar style on the designer’s website – features a green and violet floral print that cascades from the sleeves all the way down to the hem of the dress.
It’s the same dress she wore to the BAFTAs back in 2017 – but it previously featured off-the-shoulder straps.
She completely transformed the look by adding cap sleeves for her appearance at the National Portrait Gallery on Tuesday.
At the Portrait Gala, the royal rubbed shoulders with the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, Princess Beatrice, and Kate Moss.
She kept her accessories simple, opting for a black clutch bag to complete the look.
At the 2017 BAFTAs Kate showed off the delicate shoulder straps by styling her hair in an elegant up-do, but this time she opted for loose curls.
It was the duchess’ second royal appearance of the day – earlier she stepped out in a stunning $US1,300 violet Gucci blouse for her visit to a children’s centre in London.
It has been a week full of public engagements for Middleton, who also attended the Commonwealth Day Service alongside Meghan Markle on Monday.
