Oh, Kate Middleton! My love for this woman is unconditional and no secret to you readers. But this love was sorely tested this weekend when the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Celebrations were taking place across the pond. We knew Kate would hit a home run — or, since it’s England, a sixer (cricket speak) — with what she would decide to wear. And she did, with a gorgeous crimson Alexander McQueen dress with her nude L.K. Bennett pumps, a slightly modified version of the McQueen Classic Skull clutch and a Lock and Co fascinator much like the lovely maple leaf hat she wore in Canada last year. Since she’s Kate, she also had the frock changed a bit. Sleeves were added, the hemline was lowered and the neckline was altered. Modest, yet gorgeous!
So imagine our chagrin when we learned that the same dress had already been seen on two starlets who come nowhere close to Kate’s sartorial stratosphere. The first is Tulisa Contostavlos (of sex tape notoriety) who wore the dress at The X Factor auditions last year, as seen on the left. The second is our very own Kim Kardashian, who wore it along with towering snakeskin Louboutins, in New York last year while filming Kim and Kourtney Take New York, as seen on the right. We think that Kate rocks the outfit the most, but are interested to know what you think. Vote in the poll below to let us know your top choice!
