Third time's a charm for the Duchess of Cambridge


Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, attended a film screening with Prince William this evening at the Natural History Museum in London. The Duchess wore her beloved Temperley London black lace gown for the occasion, previously seen at two events in 2012. Thrifty Kate strikes again!

Clearly a huge fan of Temperley's designs, Kate and her sister Pippa both wear the British designer often. Kate first wore the black gown from tonight to attend the premiere of War Horse in London, and then later while she and William visited St. Andrew's University during its 600th Anniversary, where they met. At these two events, Kate accessorized differently, choosing a black clutch for the War Horse premiere and her red Alexander McQueen clutch while at St. Andrew's. The visit to their Alma Mater was also in advance of Remembrance Sunday 2012, so Kate's red bag matched her bright Poppy pin perfectly.

The love for Temperley London goes both ways -- as earlier this week Alice Temperley gushed that the Duchess is "the perfect modern-day woman," and a great champion of British fashion. We must agree, as anything Kate wears (which is typically by a British brand) flies off shelves -- yes, even multi-thousand dollar dresses!

The film screening tonight was a 3D production: David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive. So yes, the Duke and Duchess had to wear 3D glasses, and what better accessory to go with Kate's diamond bracelet and William's bow tie?! The pair seemed to be having a lot of fun on their date night.

Elegant, but practical. It only further endears her to the everywoman.

So she is supposed to throw away a dress after wearing it once?We common people wear our clothes until they are worn out.We buy high quality American made clothes so we get years out of some clothes and even hand down clothes due to the clothes are still nice.

You actually believe there is such a thing as American made clothing? Rather than checking the name, the brand, etc. check the inside label as to country of origin. No one is making clothing or shoes in America at this time. Except some jeans in some prisons. And soon even those will be outsourced to Thailand, Bangladesh, China, Mexico, India, Malaysia, or Vietnam where most clothing is now made. One city in China makes over 80% of the world's socks! Time for some facts and to toss the illusion folks.

and can someone tell me again why a woman isn't to wear something twice? And how petty is it to even think about such items.

Kate is a very sensible girl as well as beautiful and smart one. She knows what looks well on her so why shouldn't she wear her favorites many times?

Her clothes don't impress me. What does is that lovely smile she always has. She appears to actually be enjoying herself at all these functions.

So it's not what you wear or how many times. Fashion industry caught or even better...................ignored.
