Kate Middleton Steals Monica Bellucci’s Thunder in Latest Royal Ensembles
The Duchess of Cambridge and the newest Bond Girl have really been duking it out in the wardrobe department. And while the royal is working hard to maintain her crown, both are clearly winners.
Kate Middleton, along with husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry, attended the premiere of “Spectre” on Monday night at the Royal Albert Hall in London. For her glamorous night out, the 33-year-old mother of two opted for a more princess-like ensemble, wearing a diaphanous sky-blue gown adored with sparkling jewels. (The Huffington Post reports that the dress was created by Middleton’s go-to designer, U.K.-based Jenny Packham.)

But Middleton wasn’t the only one to make heads turn. To celebrate the 24th installment in the James Bond franchise, Italian bombshell Monica Bellucci, who also stars in “Spectre," didn't disappoint with yet another jaw-dropping appearance: The 51-year-old actress wore a curve-hugging Ralph & Russo couture gown featuring a rich emerald hue and thigh-high slit.
However, before the movie premiere, Middleton also took part in festivities for “Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas” in London, wearing a space-inspired dress by U.K.’s Tabitha Webb which retails for $480.
Think that was enough for the Duchess? Guess again.
On Tuesday, Middleton wore a pleated smoky dress by Orla Kiely to meet children in a mentoring program at the Islington Town Hall. Then, later in the evening, she flaunted a bold floral silk dress by London-based label Erdem for 100 Women in Hedge Funds' black-tie event.
