- Kate Middleton wore a sparkling green dress from her 2019 trip to Pakistan.
- The Jenny Packham dress was originally worn with a traditional dupatta scarf.
- Middleton recycled the dress for a performance at the Royal Variety Performance in London.
The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled herself in a floor-length dress with sequins at the Royal Variety Performance in London on Thursday.
It is the same custom Jenny Packham dress that the Duchess wore during her royal tour of Pakistan in 2019, reports The Independent.
Kate Middleton first wore the dress at a reception held at the National Monument in Islamabad with Prince William, Insider reported earlier.
The dress was custom made for the Duchess, according to Hello! Magazine, and seemed to be designed with a nod to Pakistan in mind, as green is the country’s national color. It was originally worn with a matching dupatta scarf, a traditional scarf worn by women in South Asia.
For his performance in London on Thursday, Middleton wore the dress without the dupatta scarf. She styled her hair in tight curls and a bold lip and completed the look with a pair of gold earrings from Missoma, reports The Independent.
Middleton and Prince William were photographed meeting celebrities, including Ed Sheeran, at the event.
“Participates in this year’s #RoyalVarietyPerformance and meets amazing entertainers from the world of theater and music last night!” a representative of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrote on Twitter.
