Seriously, could Kate Middleton be any more gorgeous?! The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a stunning teal Jenny Packham gown to attend The Tusk Conservation Awards at Banqueting House in London with husband Prince William on Thursday, Nov. 8.
If Kate’s beautiful floor-length gown for the event looks familiar it’s just not because you’re having royal déjà vu. The mom to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis previously stepped out in the exact same dress six years ago at the London 2012 Olympic celebrations during a gala at The Royal Albert Hall.
Though Kate is no stranger to wearing recycled outfits for royal engagements, the Daily Mail previously suggested that the Duchess may not actually rewear the same pieces but instead might own multiple versions of the same gown, blouse, skirt, or pants to ensure she can don her favorite ensembles time and time again without the clothes getting worn out.
“Kate has a strong signature style and knows what she likes. It wouldn’t surprise me if she also gets a few of the same outfit made and has them ready to go, even if it is the same style,” Stylist Rochelle White told the entertainment news outlet last year.
“I think when Kate finds an outfit that looks good, feels good, and is comfortable, she would like to have it to wear again without the worry of trying to get it clean and looking like new,” White continued. “It might be easier for her to have her favorites in duplicates so that they are always looking fresh.”
Since Kate’s go-to shoes are often what she seemingly rewears the most, White speculated that she has multiple pairs of her favorite heels on hand for royal events. “Suede shoes are hard to maintain so if it’s easier to keep many pairs on standby, who wouldn’t? Kate likes to have a clean, sleek image at all times. Can you imagine if she stepped out on a royal engagement with scruffy shoes? She’s likely to have back up shoes — all the same style — in various quantities,” White said. Honestly, it makes total sense to us!
