Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is not typically known for making red carpet appearances. More often than not, she can be found at her home in Buckingham Palace or making another public appearance- typically in the name of philanthropy. But when the BAFTAs roll around, both she and husband Prince William make their annual red carpet appearance there. That's because, as President of BAFTA, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge come out to show their support for Great Britain's biggest film award show. With all things considered, it's safe to say that Middleton knows how to make quite the impression for such an occasion.
According to Glamour this past Sunday, Middleton arrived at this year's BAFTAs in a white ballgown befitting a member of Great Britain's royal family. The designer behind her gorgeous gown is the beloved fashion house, Alexander McQueen. This is not necessarily surprising, as they've made a habit of making beautiful white dresses for Middleton. But the dress she turned up in for the BAFTAs' red carpet was more than fitting for a princess.
The Alexander McQueen gown in question was pure white in color. The dress' bodice had an elegant, almost fragile pleating effect that turned into layered floral embellishments in its lone shoulder strap. The hem was rather floaty, making it almost blossom like a flower in full bloom. All in all, Middleton's dress was a sure stand out that looked amazing on her. The finishing touch of sparkly pearl-drop earrings that once belonged to the late Diana, Princess of Wales- as well as the diamond bracelet, black ring, and white clutch- tied the entire look together to make it cohesive and stunning. There was also her smokey eye, pink cheeks, and equally pink lips that also added to her beauty. All in all, the entire look was one befitting the Duchess of Cambridge.
Middleton's outfit definitely made her a stand out at this year's BAFTAs ceremony. But keep in mind that the Duchess doesn't usually make red carpet appearances, generally speaking. With this being her only time to make such an appearance, then surely she must make a huge impression. If that was Middleton's goal, then she certainly achieved it this year.
