There will always be the inevitable comparisons between Kate Middleton and Princess Diana. There is no way to avoid them. Especially when Kate wears a stunning black gown that is so similar to the one worn by her late mother-in-law.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a black velvet Alexander McQueen gown at the Sun Military Awards in London on Saturday (Dec. 17th). Diana wore a similar dress (though hers was midnight blue) to the White House in November 1985, where she famously danced with John Travolta. The Victor Edelstein dress was later auctioned off for close to $80,000.
Whether or not it was planned … and one would be surprised to hear that it wasn’t with all the people around her, planning her every move … it reminds us of Diana and all the wonderful things she did for charity. Also, we bet many of you will be wearing the knockoffs that are sure to appear before New Year’s Eve. We just know you’ll look gorgeous.
