Kate Middleton Just Stepped Out in a Lace Alexander McQueen Showstopper

Kate Middleton is continuing to wow us with her fashion choices. And this time, she’s opted for a formfitting ball gown.

Today, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, attended the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium theater alongside her husband, Prince William.

Middleton arrived at the event wearing a floor-length gown by Alexander McQueen. The dress featured a black lace overlay with a sweetheart neckline.

Prince William wore a traditional black tuxedo, ultimately keeping the spotlight on his wife.

The Royal Variety Performance is designed to raise money for the Royal Variety Charity, which was formerly known as The Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund. The charity assists entertainers throughout the U.K., who are in need of financial or emotional support.

This is the third time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended the Royal Variety Performance. (They previously made appearances in 2014 and 2017.)

During the event, Prince William and Middleton chatted with the performers, along with executives from the Royal Variety Charity. They also enjoyed the show, which doubled as a televised fundraiser.

Middleton is a longtime supporter of Alexander McQueen. Not only does she regularly re-wear her tartan coat dress, but she also enlisted the fashion designer for her iconic wedding gown.

Keep ’em coming, Kate.
