Kate Middleton is certainly taking after her late mother-in-law Princess Diana style wise! Prince William’s new wife stepped out in a stunning black velvet floor-length Alexander McQueen gown at the Sun Military Awards on Saturday.

The dress was strikingly similar to that of Diana’s in November 1985. She wore a midnight blue velvet Victor Edelstein gown to the White House, and even danced with John Travolta. The dress was later auctioned off.
