Kate Middleton Recycles a Dress We All Remember & Love (PHOTO)

kate middletonKate Middleton is stunning in no matter what she wears, but some outfits leave more of a lasting impression than others. Like this Orla Kiely gray pleated dress with a darling floral motif around the neckline. Kate wore it back in 2012 to an event at the Dulwich Art Gallery, and now she's wearing it again to a charity event.


Same dress -- only three years ago, she wore her hair down.

A dress this nice, you have to wear it at least twice. Those pleats are adorable and create such great movement.

Some people in the public eye are never caught wearing the same thing more than once, but for the rest of us, that's just not an option. And while I think it could be an option for Kate, it's just not the type of person she is -- she's a bit practical and yet not boring at all. I mean, she did wait years to wear this one again. Though I suspect she's had it on before this, only she wasn't photographed in it. Besides, it fits her perfectly and looks lovely with that style of black heels she favors. 

Kate continues to be a fashion icon we can relate to and be inspired by. Orla Kiely needs to make this dress again!
