Kate Middleton Recycles a Midnight Blue Dress for Her Last Night in NYC


December 9, 2014 @ 11:33 pm

So nice that she wore it–not twice–but thrice! The Duchess of Cambridge has been the talk of the town this week in New York City as she and Prince William continue to make the most of their whirlwind tour of the Big Apple, and her outfit selections have certainly been a popular part of the conversation.

Tuesday night, the Duchess of Cambridge chose an off the shoulder ink blue silk tulle frock with a black velvet belt by British designer Jenny Packham to attend the St. Andrews 600th Anniversary Dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (above, left)–but this isn’t the first time we’ve seen her in it.

Kate first wore the gown to the 100 Women in Hedge Funds event back in 2013 (above, right) and later, she resurfaced the dress for her first public appearance of 2014 at The National Portrait Gallery in February (above, middle). But on this most recent occasion, she accessorized the gown a little differently than ever before–with a baby bump!

Earlier on Tuesday, the expectant Duchess and the Prince made a stop at the Creativity is GREAT event, which was held at NeueHouse especially in their honor, before making their way downtown for a touching stop at the 9/11 Memorial, rocking a $ 99 black turtleneck dress and bright pink Mulberry coat for the occasion. No matter what part of the world she’s in, we continue to admire the Duchess for her ongoing effort to keep it real when it comes to mixing affordable pieces into her wardrobe, and re-wearing many of her favorites.

ESPY Awards Exclusive: This Is How Maria Sharapova Got Ready for Her Major Night

The ESPY Awards, aka the biggest night of the year for sports stars to show off what they look like out of their uniforms (hello, hotties!), took place last night and Maria Sharapova looked a-ma-zing. The 27-year-old tennis superstar rocked an Antonio Berardi stretch jersey cocktail dress with lace sleeve detailing to present at the event—and take home the Best Female Tennis Player of the Year award, thankyouverymuch. She accessorized with Walter Steiger shoes, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and jewelry by Irene Neuwirth and Jennifer Fisher. Love that look? So do we! Which is why she snapped pics of her getting-ready process to give us all the exclusive deets.

2:06 p.m. “Before applying makeup, I use my everyday Supergoop! City Serum ($ 42; sephora.com) to create a good base. Especially for the ESPY Awards—the sun is really strong on the red carpet so a moisturizer with sunscreen is really important. What a glam spread!”

5:26 p.m. “A little last minute lipstick application and a quick hair spritz was necessary before doing a live segment on ESPN. The heat can make your hair so flat!”
