Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – St. Paul’s Cathedral

Posted by Catherine Kallon

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore her Sunday best, despite it being Tuesday, for the morning service at St. Paul’s Cathedral celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee earlier today.

She wore her second Alexander McQueen look of the 4 day festivities; but this one isn’t instantly recognisable as a McQueen piece.

Her nude long sleeve lace dress with a grosgrain waistband was custom-made by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

The Duchess does have a love affair with lace from her wedding gown to her navy Erdem dress worn during a visit to Canada and her Alice by Temperely gown worn to a London premiere.

A custom floral-accented Jane Taylor hat was teamed with nude LK Bennett (yes, again) a satin Prada clutch (yep, once again) and pearl drop earrings.

Some of you object to Kate wearing custom McQueen pieces, but she can hardly wear the Armadillo heels.

It would appear she has built up a close working relationship with Sarah Burton and whilst her looks don’t scream McQueen, she’s continually supporting a British brand which is most important.

Despite the overuse of the same accessories, I happen to really like this look. Simple and elegant.
