Kate Middleton has rightfully been a style icon ever since she stunned the world with her iconic Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown in 2011. She and stylist Natasha Archer are collectively genius at incorporating looks from the high street (that’s British for “stores we normal people shop at”) into her wardrobe, leaving us #blessed with outfit inspiration courtesy of favorites like L.K. Bennett, Zara, and J.Crew. But one thing she’s always been incredible at? Getting dressed up to the nines—we’re talking glittery, gorgeous gowns that are truly fit for a princess.
On Friday night, Middleton and Prince William attended the Royal Variety Performance in London where she made a statement in a gown one of her go-to designers, Jenny Packham. She walked the red carpet in an icy blue, floor-length dress that makes her look exactly like a certain Disney princess from Frozen.
The gown’s entire sheer blue overlay is embellished with silver and blue sequins and transparent floral beads. Kate paired it with a pair of silver heels to match. Take a look at the whole ensemble—gorgeous, no?
Here’s a closer look:
We’ve seen this color on her before—she seems to keep it in rotation in her wardrobe, and she looks fantastic each time. She wore a similar shade of silvery blue, this time with a lace overlay, back in October for her first appearance after announcing her third pregnancy. This latest evening-wear pick, however, also reminds us almost exactly of a very Blair Waldorf look she had going earlier this year in March during a visit to Paris. Also by Jenny Packham, her Paris gown shared the icy blue, sheer neckline, shimmery embellishment of her most recent dress—although the latter was definitely the most glam out of the two.
After all, when you know what you like, stick with it—and that guidance definitely extends to royalty, too.
