Third Time's the Charm For Kate Middleton in This Festive Red Dress
It's hard to believe that Kate Middleton hasn't worn this red dress during the holiday season before. The festive Alexander McQueen number is the perfect cherry shade, and there's no denying the duchess likes it a lot. After first coordinating the design with a fascinator for the June 2012 Diamond Jubilee, Kate recycled it for an occasion at Buckingham Palace in February 2014 and wore it today to visit the Anna Freud Centre for a party, proving its versatility.
Maybe it's just the holiday season upon us, but we have to admit, breaking out the long-sleeved A-line stunner right ahead of Christmas was Kate's smartest move yet. Read on to see all three ways she accessorized her trusty dress and learn why this is our favorite look yet. Then jump aboard the pleats train and shop it yourself!
