The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Warhorse premiere in London last night, and Kate opted to wear black again. This time the dress in question was a beautiful, full length black lace gown with a nude lining, and it was absolutely lovely. Keying into Kate’s love of lace, this dress was elegant, feminine and utterly exquisite.
Kate has already showed support for Alice Temperley on a number of occasions, notably at Wimbledon in June, in a white dress criticised for being a bit like a tennis costume. This time Kate’s choice of Temperley has been eliciting approval all over the media and news sites.
I love that Kate is embracing classic black for formal, evening occasions. Black has been something that many believed the Royals should keep for funerals, but it is such a sophisticated, chic choice. I also love that this dress has the feel of a winter ball gown, with the darker shade and long sleeves. There is a touch of Spanish influence to the dress that I also adore, with Kate’s flowing hair she could be a Spanish Infanta – totally glorious.
