Kate Middleton Recycled Her Ten-Year-Old Alexander McQueen Dress With A 2018 Jenny Packham Belt – .


Kate Middleton stylishly updated a dress she first wore in 2011 at last night’s Earthshot Prize green carpet.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, stunned in a powdery purple £ 4,290 gown as she adorned the carpet at Alexandra Palace in London.

But in a clever move to give the ten-year-old dress a modern twist, the royal updated the belt by replacing it with a trendy number from Jenny Packham’s 2018 collection.

The original dress, a personalized number from Alexander McQueen, featured a sparkling silver belt that sat below the Duchess’s hip.

The new belt is thinner and bronze instead of silver with a geometric hexagonal pattern.

It’s also not the belt Kate wore over her 2011 wedding dress.

The second royal dress – designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen – was a satin number with an eye-catching rhinestone belt also from McQueen.

Upcycling, according to stylist Rochelle White, is a common fashion way to stay green while still looking fresh and exciting.

The celebrity stylist told FEMAIL: “Fashion upcycling is a big thing right now, but Kate has been known to be doing it for quite some time.

“With this look, I feel like she embellished the look with the belt.

“The belt itself is an eye-catcher and adds a bit more sophistication to the dress and the look of the event she’s attending. It is by adding a small simple detail like that, that we can transfer an outfit.

“Belts around dresses are making a comeback, but in a more fashionable way. They were very popular in the early 2000s, but with the rise of thinner belts, they are becoming popular.

“I also think that with winter approaching and more and more people wearing sweater dresses, cardigans and even coats, etc. will be seen more often.

The mother-of-three first wore the dress to a Bafta reception in Los Angeles as she and Prince William toured America as the newlyweds.

The pale lilac colourway and delicate crease complemented the delicate frame perfectly.  Known for her effortless style and laid-back look, the royal wore her hair in her signature bouncy blow-dry with a light curl while opting for glamorous makeup.

Kate has a close affiliation with Alexander McQueen having worn the British fashion house’s designs on notable occasions, most notably to her wedding in 2011.

Her Royal Highness first donned the dress at a BAFTA black tie event at the Belasco Theater, one of the first such events that she experienced after marrying William in April 2011.

Prince William also sported an upcycled look. Ditching his usual black tuxedo for a trendy polo collar and green velvet jacket, William, who created the Earthshot Prize with the Royal Foundation, looked like 007’s photo.

The outfit echoed Daniel Craig’s pink velvet tuxedo he wore to the No Time to Die London premiere earlier this month.

No stars visited London for the ceremony and organizers asked guests to “consider the environment when choosing their outfit.”

Most of the guests followed William and Kate, reusing an outfit they had already worn.
