The bold red dress tied in beautifully with the rich red and gold theme of the Diamond Jubilee river pageant. Being a fall 2011 dress it has already made the rounds. We've seen it on the likes of Tulisa Contostavlos and Kim Kardashian. Out of the three looks Kate is a clear winner. In fact, we even prefer Kates version to the original look on the model.
It's not only about the color but the length and added sleeves on Kate that makes this dress a much bolder statement. The pleated skirt on Kate has so much more movement and definition as well as the little collar over the hipline. We even adore the pretty little hat. Our only gripe, which is a small one, is the platform nude pump. We wish Kate had opted for something a little less chunky to complete this utterly ladylike ensemble.
Overall we feel Kate has taken what looked like just another little red dress and made it powerhouse worth paying attention to. We're off to look for a red dress to add to our wardrobe right now!
