On Thursday evening Kate Middleton made the red carpet even more glamorous with her choice of dress, as the royal attended the Top Gun: Maverick premiere at London’s Leicester Square alongside her husband Prince William.
The Duchess donned a Roland Mouret gown, which is a black bodycon dress with a beautiful bardot neckline in a contrasting shade of white, a figure-flattering bodice and an elegant fishtail cut. However, there was one small detail that only a few people noticed, which is the fact that Kate made some modifications to the back of the ‘Lamble Off-The-Shoulder Gown’, giving it a more modest makeover for her big outing.
The original dress, which is from the past season buy and had a retail price of £2,700, featured four sheer panels on the back running down either side of the gold zip detailing.
As the Duchess entered the cinema with her husband Prince William, the dress that she was wearing had no such detail and was completely covered up.
She did not disappoint in the accessories department either, as she combined her Alexander McQueen ‘Black Velvet Crystal Embellished Box Clutch’ with her Prada ‘Black Suede Wave Cutout Pumps’.
She finished off her look with the beautiful new ‘Tsar Star Stud and Drop Earrings’ from Robinson Pelham, which perfectly offset the bardot neckline.
Kate is well known for making designer pieces her own and her creative use of colour and accessories. Be it a brand new piece or a repeating item, she still somehow manages to look absolutely stunning.
Earlier this week the mother-of-three had another home run in the outfit department. As she attended the Queen’s garden party at Buckingham Palace she wore a wonderful Emilia Wickstead coat dress.
With that dress, she went with a striking headpiece from Jane Taylor salmon pink shoes from Emmy London and her favourite vintage accessory – a beautiful beaded clutch bag believed to be from Bags by Josef, an iconic designer most popular in the 1930s to 1950s.
