Remember the mesh dress that Kate Middleton wore during a 2002 fashion show, which ultimately kicked off her romance with Prince William? Well, we have some major news about the now-iconic garment: It was actually a skirt.
Fashion expert and auctioneer Kerry Taylor recently discussed the charity event in an interview with Us Weekly and revealed that the mesh number wasn’t supposed to be worn as a dress.
“It was meant to be a skirt actually,” Taylor said. “And she kind of yanked it up and wore it as a dress. You know, she had a great figure, so yeah, she definitely caught Prince William’s eye that night and the rest is history.”
We trust Taylor’s expertise, especially since her company, Kerry Taylor Auctions, obtained the dress—er, we mean, skirt—for the 2011 Passion For Fashion Auction at La Galleria in London (pictured below).
