Kate Middleton channels Jackie Kennedy in chic tweed Gucci dress

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looked fashionable as ever today while visiting the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Kate dazzled in a very Jackie O-inspired tweed dress by Gucci as she opened a new entrance to the museum.

Wearing the signature blue and red stripe, Kate's dress featured pocket detailing on the chest and hips and three-quarter length sleeves. Some called the look "sassy," while others applauded how she channeled the former first lady in the gorgeous ladylike dress.

For what it's worth, the parallels between Kate and Jackie O go way beyond this dress -- their effortless, classic style and timeless beauty -- and Kate's place in history is already cemented as Jackie's was very early on. There's just something about a couple so fabulous (and their beautiful children!) that fascinates the world.

Kate's Gucci dress retails for £1,790 (around $2,300) (a similar style in red can be found in select sizes at Net-A-Porter for $2,700 and black can be found at Neiman Marcus). Kate's tweed look is still available in the UK on the Gucci website. She paired the dress with a red clutch, navy chunky heels and her favorite Annouschka pearl drop earrings.

If you haven't already seen, Kate is set to attend Wimbledon in the next few days as the official royal patron (and avid tennis fan). After being forbidden to attend in 2013 by her doctor -- yes seriously! -- she will happily be there for Opening Day, and will probably appear again if Britain favorite Andy Murray makes it to the finals like he did last year.
