Kate Middleton Dons the Perfect Holiday Party Dress: Look of the Day

Kate Middleton's Island Style
The Duchess colorful looks from the South-Pacific Diamond Jubilee tour.
The Duchess of Cambridge has done it again — wowing us with another perfect-for-fall outfit.

Sporting a sheer floral dress by one of her favorite designers, Alice Temperley, Middleton nailed polished party-wear in another soon-to-be-sold-out style for a reception at Buckingham Palace.

Perfect for a holiday party, the Duchess’ dress was on-trend for the season, with sheer detailing on the sleeves and neckline and rich floral embroidery.

By playing with contrasts, Middleton’s black sheath managed to look perfectly prim and polished — without being boring or buttoned-up.

Ultra-feminine details — flouncy ruffling, embroidered flowers decorating the hemline and sleeves, and a waist-defining bow — countered the sleek silhouette and sheer paneling.

Not quite T-shirt length, not quite three-quarter length, Middleton’s in-between sleeves were trimmed in a Victorian-inspired ruffle that offered a chic contrast to the modern cut.

The Duchess maintained the ladylike feel of her dress with classic black Jimmy Choo pumps but skipped the black tights for a perfect between-seasons look.

Take a closer look at the princess’ perfect party look here.
