Kate Middleton Repeats Another Dress! (That’s Why We Love Her)

The Duchess of Cambridge had another recycled fashion moment, looking lovely in Alexander McQueen

Kate Middleton is clearly a fan of the old adage: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it…

She has found several dresses that she loves, and she’s happy to stick with them.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a stunning red Alexander McQueen frock for a special reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday evening.

She joined Queen Elizabeth II for the royal affair decked out in the very same dress she wore for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on June 3, 2012.

The fashionable mum, 32, accessorised her bright, pleated dress with a simple black clutch, matching satin courts and her high-wattage smile.

Kate pulled another fashion do-over last week, when she rewore her blue silk Jenny Packham gown. We love that, despite her unlimited shopping budget, the Duchess doesn’t feel pressure to wear a brand-new dress for every event.

Her willingness to reuse and recycle her favourite pieces just makes her that much more relatable!
