For a tour of Australia and New Zealand during the summer, you need some airy dresses to keep you cool. Luckily, Kate had this yellow Project D number on standby from her trip to the Far East a few years before. The summery frock was the perfect number for touring and sightseeing. The royal couple met some special residents, the famous Australian quokkas.
They weren’t as impressed with meeting the British royals as you or we would be, but that’s understandable. We bet they were hoping for Edward. Kate had her hair flowing, and even Prince William looked cool and casual in his checkered shirt.
Alexander McQueen Dress - December 2015
Previously, this bold number was worn at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Three years later, Kate donned it again for a slightly less important (though equally fitting) occasion. Kate attended the Anna Freud Centre Family School Christmas Party in London, and a bright red dress definitely screamed "Christmas."
While anyone can get away with wearing loud clothing in the name of the holiday, Kate usually doesn't wear such bright colors. Still, you can't fault her — she kept everything else low-key and knew how to carry herself so that the dress didn't wear her. It's an impressive talent that she seems to naturally possess.
Project D Dress - September 2012
When Kate and William set off for their Jubilee Tour of the Far East in the year 2012, Kate needed a closet full of outfits to accompany her. One such outfit was a yellow Project D dress with eyelet cut-outs. The dress was the perfect summer frock, complete with a folded collar.
When Kate wore it at the departure ceremony at Honiara Airport in the Solomon Isles, she had her hair done in a royal updo and wore easy camel-colored wedged sandals. She also held a traditional ornate fan, which no doubt came in handy with the area's famous humidity.
Diane von Furstenberg Gown - November 2014
The Royal Variety Performance is a night of glitz and glam, and Kate and her stylists knew this. They opted for this Diane von Furstenberg black lace gown that is fit for a (future) queen. The gown was elegant, dazzling, and, like always, showed the world how fitting it is that Kate Middleton is part of the royal family.
Certainly in this gown, there would not have been an eye that she did not catch. Fortunately, that's what the night is for. The fundraising night was a hit, as always, and the royal family got to enjoy the best entertainment the country has to offer.
Diane von Furstenberg Gown - November 2017
Almost exactly three years after its debut, the Diane von Furstenberg black lace gown reappeared for another black-tie event. This time, it was the 2017 Gala Dinner for The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. The event was held at Kensington Palace.
It was attended by many guests who have dedicated their lives and work to the betterment of the lives of children and families in need. The cause is close to the heart of the Duchess of Cambridge, and she has spent many years learning as well as educating others on the topic. Kate naturally stole the show but in her modest way, didn't make a scene of herself.
