Recycle glam clothes and amaze: this is how Kate enchanted and amazed us (once again!)

William and Kate

Kate Middleton also gives lessons in glamor at the Earthshot Prize Awards, and we have a lot to learn.

In this period where weddings and ceremonies are not desired, also thanks to the pandemic that has generated an inevitable postponement of the wedding to many brides to be , the idea of ​​choosing smart and cheap solutions, but ensuring the maximum of glam, we do not mind surely. And if this disenchanted suggestion comes from Kate Middleton we only have to learn. The Duchess of Cambridge, who has important meetings and ceremonies on her agenda, has re-proposed a beautiful long dress with a brand new touch for the Earthshot Prize Awards . So after the wonderful golden dress for the premiere of 007 No time to die , let’s happily talk about another definitely thumbs-up look of hers.

Kate at the Earthshot Prize Awards in Alexander McQueen’s 2011 recycled wisteria dress

For the uninitiated, the Earthshot Prize Awards are a ceremony that rewards those who propose the 50 most promising ideas to save the planet and which will be funded by Prince William, mastermind of the event. Unintentionally ( or perhaps there is a bit of fashion strategy ), the first proposal came from his wife: the Duchess of Cambridge for this 2021 edition rather than choosing a new dress, she preferred to draw on her wonderful glam wardrobe and re-propose a dress worn in 2011 .

Isn’t this an example of sustainability and intelligent recycling? A theme that is currently increasingly at the center of companies and brands in the fashion sector, and which is therefore absolutely in line with the leitmotif of the ceremony conceived by William. But beyond that there are two other fashion goals that Kate brings home: a lesson in how we can recycle our elegant dresses with attention to the smallest detail. The long pleated Alexander McQueen dress was customized by Kate with a different belt than in 2011: gold today, white a few years ago. The nuance is also decisive, a delicate wisteria among the trends of this autumn, which makes the revival of this dress flawless.

The Duchess, master of recycling: a fashion and sustainable lesson

Kate is not new to the recycling of clothes, another of the traits of her personality that have often compared her to Lady Diana, she too tries to re-propose her clothes in a creative way. Both share this choice not only in the case of casual dresses or outfits intended for informal meetings, but as has also been seen on the occasion of important events.

A strong sign for the sustainability of fashion, so that we do not always have to increase our purchases, but also of creativity: this time Kate has shown how even a dress already worn can be renewed even with an accessory: just like a few years ago she did with a houndstooth dress by Zara, worn for the first time in combination with a green coat , once again Alexander McQueen and among her outerwear that we have seen wearing her several times.
