The Dress Kate Middleton Wore to the National Portrait Gallery Is Spring Outfit #Goals

Talk about making an entrance. Kate Middleton dressed to impress last night when she arrived at the National Portrait Gallery, one of her royal patronages, for their spring gala—a black-tie affair.

After spending the day in pants and a bow-tie blouse (cue the makeover!), Kate changed out of her daytime attire and into something much more luxe, sophisticated and chic: She wore Alexander McQueen.

Aside from the fact that it was floor-length, we couldn't help but fall in love with the floral pattern, a delicate (and springy) detail against a look that's otherwise all black.

And while it appears to be a royal re-wear—or at least a riff on what Kate wore to the 2017 BAFTAs on the arm of Prince William—we love that she's kicking off the season in a style that's on par with the bloom-friendly weather ahead.

Now, the bigger question: Just how many different gowns made from that same fabric are in her closet? From her lips to her tailor's ears.
