Duchess Catherine Has Another Major McQueen Moment at Prince George's Christening

Kate Middleton Alexander McQueen, Prince George ChristeningLandov

Last time we saw Duchess Catherine in all-white Alexander McQueen was at her royal nuptials to Prince William. This time, it’s for another royal occasion — the christening of her 3-month-old son Prince George.

While George was dressed in an elaborate replica of the royal christening robe, Middleton took a slightly more modern approach, wearing a custom ivory Alexander McQueen coat dress featuring ruffles down the front. Simple drop earrings and coordinating L.K. Bennett cream pumps completed the look.

And of course, she topped her famously gorgeous hair with a coordinating bespoke Jane Taylor “sinamay beret” featuring netting and a flower appliqué. (See a similar style by the milliner — for more than $1,200! — here.)

Prince William (not pictured) selected a navy suit and blue tie for the affair and was all smiles as he held his son at the 35-minute private ceremony led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at the Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace in London.

While we love Kate decked in her classic “Sunday best” (so to speak), we also love her casual style. What do you think of her coat dress? How cute is George in his christening robe? Share your thoughts below!

She is the picture of perfection. I was wondering why Kanye had made such a hooplah recently. They just tried to steal the show again and want to make me puke.

Although she looks classy, it blends too much with the young Prince’s outfit…the Prince with his father and the contrast colors makes it stand out better…

To Sookie- Fascinators and hats aren’t a royal thing in England, they’re an English thing in England. Women are expected to wear them to any formal event or church. As a matter of fact, the wife of the Prime Minister didn’t wear one to the royal wedding and she was called out for it cause she was the only female that didn’t.
