Let’s dive straight into the facts: the Duchess of Cambridge looked incredible at the Royal Variety Performance last night.
With natural curls rather than her usual blowdry, gold earrings by Missoma, and a bolder makeup look (a deeper pink lip, smokey eye, and blush on the cheeks), Kate Middleton pulled an absolute cracker of a look, fittingly festive for the occassion.
And the dress was another rewear – a glittering green custom-made Jenny Packham gown she first chucked on during a visit to Pakistan in 2019.
While it shouldn’t be shocking that someone would rewear an outfit – even when they’re a member of the Royal Family, we’ll always appreciate seeing someone mega-famous opting to dig something out of the archives rather than buying new.
It’s a healthy reminder that even for big sparkly events, we don’t need to invest in new pieces.
Plus, we like how Kate has changed up the styling of the gown to give it a fresh look.
The first time she donned the green number, she went for a straight, smooth, half-up hairdo, strappy heels, and ornate earrings.
For her visit to the Royal Albert Hall, Kate’s hair was a serious departure from her norm, with a deeper side part and tumbling waves.
For accessories, another pair of gold dangling earrings, her engagement and wedding rings, matching green shoes, and a custom Jenny Packham clutch bag.
Alan Carr told the Duchess she looked ‘absolutely beautiful’ – and we’d have to agree.
Jenny Peckham is a favourite designer for the Duchess. Kate also wore a gold Jenny Packham gown for the No Time To Die premiere.
We’ve been enjoying her more statement looks of late – long may this trend continue.
