The Duchess looked divine, wearing a dress that was so strikingly similar to that of Princess Diana’s!

When Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge turned up at the MIlitary Awards on Dec. 19, she caused a stir in her stapless, flowing velvet Alexander McQueen gown, exposing her shoulders for the first time — and the slightly controversial choice was just like when Princess Diana debuted her bare arms 30 years before, in 1981, at The Royal Opera House.

Diana, who wore a frock by Elizabeth and David Emmanuel, (the same designers who crafted her wedding dress), also made waves for wearing a strapless gown. Accessorizing with gorgeous jewels, it’s so striking that Kate opted for such a similar look 30 years later! Don’t you agree?

Being of a certain age, I noticed how similar they were but big difference – Diana was fallin out of the top ( which made a lot of bad press at the time) and Kate’s is sleek and very stylish. As for the strapless – with her lovely long hair you really can’t notice it too much.
