Kate Middleton has really pulled out all the fashion stops for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in England. And, while she has looked ever-so-stunning at every turn, she has played favorites! The Duchess of Cambridge has picked out pieces from Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen's collection not once, not twice, but three times for the weekend celebration. It's no surprise that she gravitates toward the line, though, as the pieces seamlessly blend a touch of edginess and trendsetting style with the ultimate classic sophistication. Burton also famously designed Middleton's still-talked-about lace wedding gown for her marriage to Prince William a little over a year ago, so the Duchess obviously feels comfortable donning this designer.
Kate Middleton had another fabulous lace moment, too, with her nude, knee-length confection that she recently wore for the Queen's thanksgiving service at St. Paul's Cathedral. Although the dress was rather demure, its figure-hugging silhouette, and the sublime color made it plenty chic and just a little sultry.
Of course, what's a fabulous frock without a fascinator to match?! Middleton wore a gorgeous one by milliner Jane Taylor that looks like it was made for her McQueen dress, what with its perfectly matched hue, the touch of netting, and the modern flower-like shape. And those trusty nude LK Bennett soles capped off her ensemble.
The third time was obviously the charm for Kate Middleton and her McQueen moments, as there's no denying she was positively lovely in lace. However, her first two exits were none too shabby. The Duchess also wore a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen coat over her Whistles dress for the Diamond Jubilee concert, and she turned heads in a crimson red peplum dress by the designer for the pageant and the flotilla along The Thames, as Express.co.uk confirms.
Talk about a chic streak!
