Last year (almost to the day!), Kate Middleton debuted an uncharacteristically hippie-ish peace sign-patterned Mulberry frock.
Today, the Duchess pulled it back out out the depths of her closet for the official opening of The Natural History Museums’s Treasures Gallery. The frock is called the “Peace & Love Jacquard Full Pleated Shirt Dress”, from Mulberry’s Fall 2011 collection, and she paired it with her Jimmy Choo “Cosmic” suede pumps.
The emerald frock’s long, blouse-y sleeves and all-over pleats give it an unmistakably 70s vibe, which is only emphasized by Kate’s freshly-layered ‘do. She showed off her trimmed bangs at a rugby match earlier this week, but with the added curls tonight she seems to be channeling Jacyln Smith in Charlie’s Angels.
Between this look and the sheer, Stevie Nicks-esque Temperley number she got her groove on in last month, we can only hope that bellbottoms and platforms are next on the royal agenda.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
