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.
