With a wrap covering most of her blond hair – and also matching it – from a distance it's less clear where Kate's hair ends and the head piece begins. Well, minus the gold shimmer, that is. A jewel holds the intricate piece on her head and offers one of the only contrasts in this otherwise single hued look.

Even her face looks golden with bronzer and her eyes are lined to be the focal point. With smoky to the max shadow winged out past the end of her brows and a bit lighter under her eyes, it reminded me of a modern-day Cleopatra. Nude lips pursed in a serious pout finish off this intense look – do you love it or think she's taking a flair for the dramatic too far?
