We return with another poll looking for your vote, as well as some news headlines.

Some background on how this poll is structured, including what pieces are included this year:

  • While we did not include tour pieces in our previous polls, the two semi-formal looks Kate wore during the tour are covered in this one. There are so very many dresses in the tour dress polls, breaking out these two styles seemed to make sense.
  • There is one repeat included in this poll: the inky blue evening gown by Jenney Packham worn in February and again in December. Because many of us consider an ensemble’s overall impact (taking into account jewelry, accessories, hair style, jewelry) when deciding how we feel about a style, it made sense to vote on the gown. The hair and jewelry were significantly different for the two engagements.

There were no January appearances. In February we saw Kate in that classic Jenny Packham evening gown for the Annual Portrait Gala at the National Portrait Gallery. The Duchess also wore the Nizam of Hyderabad diamond necklace, loaned to her by the Queen.

Once again we seek your votes on your most favored Kate styles from 2012. Today we look at Kate’s evening gowns as well as suits/separates worn by the Duchess in 2012.

Kate was stunning for the January premiere of War Horse, wearing what proved to be a popular dress, the ‘Amoret’ by Alice Temperley. The gown showcased French lace with a floral motif atop a nude silk lining, unlined lace sleeves, a snug fit to the hip where the skirt then flares to the floor, waist detailing with a bow, a deep vee neck and keyhole opening at the back.
