Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton attended the Place2Be Headteacher Conference in London on Wednesday wearing a very familiar ensemble.

The embellished ensemble was first spotted on Middleton back in 2012 when she attended the premiere of “African Cats” alongside husband Prince William in London. And just as it did then, the dress, which highlighs turquoise and gold beading at the collar and cuffs, perfectly accentuated the Duchess’ sleek figure and signature blowout.
But if you're looking to add this dress to your personal collection, it’s going to cost you. One report insists that the dress was originally part of Williamson’s pre-fall 2012 collection, and additional beading was applied just for the royal. And regardless, The Daily Mail is reporting that it's worth around 995 pounds (or $1515.48 in U.S. dollars).

Out of your price range? Don't worry. You can take some affordable style lessons from Middleton.
“I always shop for multipurpose items for my clients,” says stylist Marcus Stewart on how to recycle fashion like the royal. “If you wear the Prada shirt dress with flats and a woven belt during the day, don’t be afraid to wear it again at night with a strappy open toe high-heel sandal and beautiful statement jewels. Fashion is meant to be enjoyed and lived in.”
