Kate Recycles Another Gorgeous Gown! Which Way Did She Wear This Jenny Packham Dress Best?

Now that the Duchess of Cambridge is a mom, it seems like she’s been recycling her wardrobe even more than before giving birth to Prince George. Maybe she’s not as into shopping for new looks, or maybe she just knows what she loves and sticks to it. That’s definitely the case with this ink blue Jenny Packham gown, which Kate brought back out of her closet for the Royal Portrait Gala in London Tuesday (far left), just three months after she first wore it (right).

And we don’t blame her for being obsessed with this dress. The off-the-shoulder number, featuring a black velvet belt, highlights her slender waist, while the flowing silk tulle feels very regal. Back in October, Kate debuted the gown at the 100 Women in Hedge Funds/Action on Addiction gala dinner in London. But for this time around, she chose to step things up in the accessory department, adding a diamond drop necklace borrowed from Queen Elizabeth. She also added a tighter curl to her coveted hair.

Our editors just sat front row at the Fall 2014 Jenny Packham show, and spotted a few gowns that would be fun for Kate should she be ready to try a new look (more on that later!). But we want to know: When did the Duchess wear the dress best? What do you think of her red carpet repeat policy? Share your thoughts below.

She is a lovely classy woman and I wish we had more like her than all the welfare moms and deadbeat dads that have taken over our country.

Oh no she wore a gown more than once! Gasp!
I mean really, who cares!
Kate is very aware that people are struggling in the world and she is not into flaunting her wealth.
She is a regular down to earth woman, who is humble and likes to set a good example.

Really folks, she is married to a prince& will be queen some day. The point of the article was that she chose to wear the same outfits to public functions. It is very unusual to see any of royalty wearing the same outfits in public. Yes, most people are royalty & thus we wear the same outfits. Honestly, I would rewear my favorites but ditch the rest. Kate wears her same jeans, boots & etc. for non-public events. I like her style.

She is not like the rest of us! Her clothes costs a fortune which the rest of us can”t ever afford! This is just for public display , her recycling dress is all bs . Can’t full me

I wish all these magazines would stop calling it recycling. It’s wearing an outfit more then once, as everyone does, how is that recycling? Kate just has common sense, it’s refreshing. These Hollywood celebs should take a note from Kate’s book. Kate looks gorgeous as always.

Well, When the people of the UK are screaming at the Queen to cut expenses, it would hardly do for Kate to spend a fortune on gowns and get only one night’s wear. That said, I think The Duchess should be able to wear a new dress to each affair. As long as she is happy.

Go Princess! Why waste money when you already have a perfect gown in your closet?!

Wow, Mia – You’re a freak. Get some counseling…..

Final Opinion on

This Mia character that comments has to be a Whacko. I doubt she has ever been exposed to the real world. She is lives in her fantasy one .
