Kate Middleton dazzles in Alexander McQueen at 2020 BAFTAs

It's date night for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! 

On Sunday, the couple donned their black-tie best for 73rd British Academy Film Awards at the famed Royal Albert Hall in London. It may have been one of the most highly anticipated shows on our awards season calendar, but to many royal fans, it was simply an opportunity for yet another glamorous royal moment. 

The BAFTAs, the British equivalent of the Oscars, enacted a new dress code for the 2020 show by asking its high-profile guests to "be a voice for change" and dressing sustainably. While celebrity attendees often opt for new, very expensive designer gowns, they were reportedly asked to instead to re-wear or rent their outfits. And in the chance they wanted to buy their outfits, they could consult a list of sustainable brands curated by the London College of Fashion.

In adhering to the dress code, Kate opted for white Alexander McQueen gown embroidered with gold Malaysian hibiscus flowers. The mom-of-three previously wore the designer creation eight years ago at a dinner hosted by Malaysia's Head of State.

She accessorized the look with Jimmy Choo pumps and jewelry from Van Cleef & Arpels. 

McQueen, who was also behind the duchess' wedding gown in 2012, has been a favorite of Kate's for various red carpet events.

At the 2019 BAFTAs, the royal opted for a one-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown with earrings that were once owned by Princess Diana. Kate also opted for McQueen for the 2017 awards show and again in 2011.
