If You Still Think Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding Look Is a Repeat, Check Out the Sleeves
When Kate Middleton made her much anticipated appearance at the royal wedding in an Alexander McQueen coat dress, we weren't surprised that her outfit felt so familiar. Kate is a huge proponent of repeating silhouettes that are comfortable. When reports trickled in that Kate was actually in a design she'd worn to Princess Charlotte's christening and then again in Belgium in 2017, we were delighted by Kate's no-fuss wedding guest attire. Why create buzz about a new outfit when Meghan's Givenchy gown deserved the spotlight?
Only, Kate's canary yellow ensemble, complete with Jimmy Choo pumps and a fabulous Philip Treacy hat, did cause quite the stir — because it was actually a slightly different shade from the old ivory look people mistook it for. Blogger Royal Addicted, a true Kate Middleton fan, called out yet another important detail: Kate's new McQueen featured buttons on the sleeves, while her christening number most certainly did not. Ahead, read on to compare the looks and zoom in on the details.
