To be consistent with the themes addressed at the gala, the Dukes presented themselves with recycled looks. William wore an unusual green velvet jacket with a dark turtleneck, an outfit that earned him the comparison with 007. While Kate surprised everyone by presenting herself with a long lilac dress, with a wide and fluffy skirt and a precious pearl belt and crystals. The jewel dress is signed Alexander McQueen, Lady Middleton’s favorite brand for special occasions, and was worn by the Duchess for the first time at the Bafta in 2011.
Once again Kate proves that time has not passed for her and that the three pregnancies have changed her physique little, as she has repeatedly presented herself in public with garments that have belonged to her wardrobe from the beginning of her royal career. But not only is it a question of style, the Duchess of Cambridge every time she recycles a look gives an important ecological lesson, revealing how to recover “dated” clothes without making style slips.

The secret is all in the accessories and combinations that have the power to renew the image. In 2011, when she first wore her lilac dress, Kate wore platform sandals and a gold clutch. The hair was not gathered and aimed at the vaporous wave effect, while as a precious detail she wore a diamond bracelet. In 2021 the Duchess gave up the bag and instead of the bracelet she focused on the morganite earrings, created by Kiki McDonough in a special edition. The jewel is highlighted by the asymmetrical hairstyle that reveals one side of the face, however playing on the legendary curls of the Duchess made with her special magic brush.
Kate Middleton also renews her make-up, using pink and apricot shades that give greater shine to the complexion, restoring a more “bold” image compared to its natural look. Small details that make the difference and manage to renew a 10-year-old outfit.
Another small precaution concerns the tailoring work. Before wearing a dress of some time ago it is good to try it on and check that there are no small changes to be made to the waistline or hem to adapt it to the physiological changes of the body.
