The Duchess looked better than ever, four months after giving birth, while recycling one of her most daring dresses at the premiere, however, those in attendance, (including his daughter), were unaware that the inspirational figure passed away at 95.
Kate Middleton made a breathtaking appearance at the UK premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom at the 2013 Royal Film Performance at the Odeon Leicester Square in London on Dec. 5, where the Duchess braved frigid temperatures as she stepped out on the red carpet in a gorgeous gown by French designer Roland Mouret. The 31-year-old selected a dress that was already hanging in her closet, which she first showed off in 2012, but on this occasion she styled it differently and gave it a whole new look.
Kate Middleton’s ‘Mandela’ Premiere Dress:
While Kate looked sensational when she first debuted the dress in May 2012 at a private dinner at Claridge’s, this time she gave the ensemble a fresh update by adding on an exquisite statement necklace — in fact, if you just glance at her quickly it almost looks as if it’s part of the dress! The cream ensemble features a slit up to the thigh that allowed the new mom to show off her toned legs as she glided down the red carpet on the arm of her hubby, who looked dapper in a tuxedo.
She wore her hair back in a polished ponytail as to not distract from the neckline and rocked the red carpet look with black pumps and a black clutch — it was classic and chic!
Kate Middleton Recycles Thigh-High Dress After Baby:
I really admire Kate’s fashion sense and the way she was able to easily update the ensemble — in fact, it looked so different from the first time she wore it! When she debuted the dress she donned metallic sandals and a matching clutch, as she wore her hair down to display her glossy locks.
Kate bounced back so quickly after giving birth that it comes as no surprise to see her slipping into her favorite looks — but the fact that she looks even better in the dress after having a baby is what really wowed us.
What do you think? Do you love Kate in this recycled look or do you wish she switched it up? VOTE.
