Kate Middleton proved her environmental chops at tonight’s Earthshot prize green carpet as she stunned in a gorgeous powder purple dress as she first wore in 2011.
To match the event’s ethos and highlight on sustainability, the mother-of-three recycled a dress she first wore ten years ago in 2011, at a Bafta reception in Los Angeles while she and Prince William were touring America as newly-weds.
The dress, by the late designer Alexander McQueen, is cinched at the waist with a dazzling golden belt.
The pale lilac colourway and delicate pleating perfectly complemented delicate frame. Known for her effortless style and poised looks, the royal wore her hair in her signature bouncy blow-dry with a light curl while opting for a glamourous make-up look.
She’s hardly aged a day! Kate Middleton proved her environmental chops at tonight’s Earthshot prize green carpet as she stunned in a gorgeous powder purple dress as she first wore in 2011.
Kate has a close afflation with Alexander McQueen having worn the British fashion house’s designs on notable occasions, most famously to her wedding in 2011.
Her Royal Highness first donned the dress at a BAFTA black-tie event at the Belasco Theater, one of the first events of this kind she experienced after tying the knot with William in April 2011.

Meanwhile William, who created the Earthshot Prize with the Royal Foundation, looked dapper as he moved away from the classic black tuxedo instead opting for a black polo neck and and green velvet jacket.
Kate sported a discreet but effective makeup, with just a dash of blush to complete her healthy complexion. She donned a nude lipstick and a sprinkle of mascara.
She also kept the accessories scarce, with her cascading tresses revealing a pair of golden hoop earrings, which were her only piece of jewellery apart from her wedding ring.
