Kate Recycles DVF ‘Maja’ Dress For Zara & Mike’s Party

Kate made a solid sartorial choice tonight, opting to recycle a piece worn in Los Angeles, rather than risk upstaging bride Zara Phillips at a party celebrating tomorrow’s nuptials. Ms. Phillips is marrying longtime love, Mike Tindall, tomorrow.

The Duchess wore the Diane von Furstenburg Maja dress in green silk again, and her decision to remain low key keeps the attention where it should be, on Zara.  In this photo, you get a peek at the back of the garment. It seems all of the young royals were at tonight’s cocktail reception, held aboard the Britannia.

For those interested in the dress, it remains available in almost every size on the DVF site, selling at $398.

It looks like Kate also opted to bring out her Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch again.

Here are two other occasions where Kate has carried the bespoke bag.

I think Kate may have also brought out her black pumps again, as well as her “Temple of Heaven” gold girandole earrings.

They are by designer Cassandra Goad, currently selling online at £1,100, roughly $1750.

About repli-Kate, i think Kate and Diana not only share the Tod's D-bag but also the Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch: look at Diana's bag at the Royal Albert Hall for Swan Lake (1997). Could be the same item? Definitely not an intentional sharing but almost the apple (of the style) never falls far from the tree!

I, for one, absolutely adore that DVF dress. I think she looks stunning and the shape of the dress gives her great curves. I agree with one of the above comments that it was totally okay for her to recycle it so quickly, seeing as she wore it half a world away previously. Her hair looked amazing and I think she looked radiant, but understated enough not to attract too much attention away from the bride. Love her!

Might Kate's hair be a little brighter-chestnut-than-usual here and at the wedding? Or perhaps the light is playing tricks on my eyes . . .

When Beatrice, Eugenie and Catherine all step off or on the boat, they do look a bit like the teletubbies in their unicolored enitrety...

The shoes are black PRADA silk shoes. She wore them so often now and someone identified them as being Prada because of the golden emblem on the sole. Moreover, the person identifying it, said that older Prada shoes had a black sole and the emblem slightly further up whereas newer Prada shoes have a cream leather sole and the emblem further down. I don't know why this is not mentioned here as it was a pretty clear straightforward ID...
