Kate Middleton's Best October Fashion Moments, Ranked
By Desiree Murphy
Kate Middleton is having a major fashion moment.
The always stylish Duchess of Cambridge has been killing the style game lately, stepping out in some of the best outfits we've ever seen her wear during her busiest month of royal appearances since giving birth to Princess Charlotte in May.
Here are our top seven favorite looks the Duchess has sported this month, in order of regal fabulousness.
7. The Pleated Gray (Recycled!) Dress
Kate looked casual and chic in this Orla Kiely gray pleated dress with a black embellished neckline while stepping out solo to meet children from Chance UK's Early Intervention Program at Islington Town Hall on Tuesday. But this isn't the first time we've seen her wear this exact dress. The 33-year-old royal also wore it to visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London in 2012.
6. The Full-length Floral Frock
Proving she can pull off anything, the Duchess donned a daring Erdem silk floral gown on Tuesday to the 100 Women in Hedge Funds event at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. A bold style move, but she executed it perfectly.
5. The Awesome Black-and-Blue Space Print Dress
We loved when Kate stepped outside her style comfort zone, rocking a space-themed Tabitha Webb dress, for the premiere of a new British animated film titled Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas at BAFTA in London on Monday. Per usual, she killed it.
4. The Royal Blue Coatdress
While visiting Scotland with Prince William to continue their support and act as advocates for mental health issues of young people, Kate sported this gorgeous Christopher Kane coatdress with black tights and boots.
3. This Ever-So-Classy Ice Blue Gown
Kate stunned at the world premiere for the new James Bond movie, Spectre, held at Royal Albert Hall in London on Monday in this flowy blue silk chiffon Jenny Packham gown. Prince William and brother-in-law, Prince Harry, both accompanied Kate to the star-studded event, but she clearly was the standout!
2. The Sexy and Tasteful Plum Lace Dress
The Duchess turned heads in this sizzling long-sleeved Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, worn to the Lancaster House in London, England, to help welcome Chinese President Xi Jinping, and his wife, Madame Peng Liyuan, to Creative Collaborations: UK & China last week.
1. The Sparkly Red Dress Complete With a Tiara!
Topping off our list as the most fabulous of all the looks, however, was the red Jenny Packham gown she wore to Buckingham Palace for her first State Dinner honoring the Chinese president. The pearl and diamond Lotus Flower tiara she donned completed her elegant ensemble.
