Kate Middleton never fails to grab eyeballs each time she steps out, for all the right reasons, of course. When it comes to Kate, it’s her touching love story with Prince William and her ever so elegant fashion sense that we love the most. And today, we have brought to you the latest scoop on what Kate wore to the Saint Andrew’s University Gala held on Thursday evening.
While William looked quite the gentleman in a tux, Kate stole everyone’s thunder in her Temperley Amoret Gown. Kate had first worn this lovely Amoret gown in January for the premiere of the film War Horse and we fell head over heels in love with it. Since then we’ve been waiting for her to showcase herself once again in this elegant gown, which she did on Thursday night, allowing us to steal another glance at this lovely piece by Temperley.
The long sleeved Amoret dress by Temperley London is made of exquisite French lace. The lace is lined with contrasting silk that makes its floral design stand out perfectly. The V neckline is bordered with scalloped edges which run all the way up to the nape of the neck, from where it gives shape to a keyhole detail.
The gown is well fitted till a little below the hip after which it flares out, forming a full length skirt. A satin bow belt sits a little above the waist, giving the dress a very feminine touch. The skirt and the sleeves are lined with scalloped edges at the bottom.
Kate accessorized her flawless gown with stylish accessories. Nestled firmly in the palm of her hands, we noticed the Alexander McQueen red box clutch. The red clutch has a pretty bow and is embedded with three rhinestones on the clasp.
Did you feel a sense of déjà vu? Well that’s because Kate had carried the same clutch to the Diamond Jubilee Thames River Pageant. However, the clasp back then was a golden skull, which the rhinestones have now replaced.
The Duchess wore Jimmy Choo’s black suede cosmic heels, a very classy choice to go with the elegant gown.
The gala was held to raise funds in support of the University’s 600th Anniversary Campaign. The University holds a special place in the hearts of William and Kate as it is here that the couple first met each other and have also acquired their degrees from. While fundraising efforts will run all through next year, £32,000,000 has already been raised.
To describe Kate’s look in a few words, the perfect choice of words would be feminine, chic, timeless and elegant. Duchess Kate Middleton sure knows how to don the right attire for every occasion. She has an amazing fashion sense and somehow manages never to go wrong with whatever she picks.
Guess some people are just gifted.
