Kate Middleton’s latest wardrobe recycling

The Duchess of Cambridge proves yet again that she’s got a knack for recycling items in her wardrobe.

Duchess Kate chose to re-wear a floor-length Alice Temperley gown to a black-tie dinner with Prince William at Middle Temple Hall celebrating the 600th anniversary of their alma mater, the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. 

She originally wore the gown, a sexy black lace creation, to a red carpet premiere of “War Horse” back in January. She chose to accessorize with a stunning red Alexander McQueen clutch and loose tendrils in her hair.

The Temperley Amoret lace gown is still available for sale on Net-a-Porter (if you want to drop $3,995 on a dress, that is).

She looks too thin and I saw a lot  of stress in her face;not her ususally smiling face.  Her face especially is too thin.

VERY slow news day??? Wow. The news here should be the bizarre fixation on every move a celeb makes. Unreal!

That she wore something a second time is supposed to be a big deal? I don't get it.

Bravo to Kate Middleton for knowing that a $3,000+ gown should be worn twice. Only the most arrogant of leaders would flaunt wealth earned off the backs of taxpayers in these lean economic times.

Why wouldn't you re-wear a gorgeous dress? I love the blue dress that both Kate and her own mother shared a while back! Royal or not, it only makes sense.

It is a beautiful dress, why wouldn't she wear it again? Being royal doesn't mean being wasteful.
