C'mon Kate, work with us here.
We're sure you didn't want to steal Zara's spotlight and that's commendable.
We love the fact that you're willing to recycle outfits even though you've got
a bank account healthier than a marathon-running Pippa.
It's all good.
Except, not so soon...
We kind of love when Kate pulls out an item we haven't seen since 2006 and makes it new again, but she should wait at least six months before wearing the same dress to big events in our opinion (the opinion that counts, obviously). At least KMidd's green Diane von Furstenberg dress--the same one the Duchess wore in L.A.--is pretty and a nice enough colour. For Zara's party Kate switched up the shoes, opting for black pumps instead--ostensibly her standard black Pradas, but we can't be sure from these pics.
Bride-to-be Zara Phillips looked pretty (and ready to party--we bet she'd be great fun, that Zara) in a one-shouldered tie dye dress (the Alice + Olivia Bree) in hues reminiscent of the water. Appropriate when your bash is being held on a yacht. Zara's sky-high nude platform heels seem to be the sexy night version of the Sledge2 worn with an oversize animal print clutch, which we're not sure we're feeling with that dress.
And who is homeboy with the plaid pants?
We want to party with him too.
It also looks like Kate is carrying her Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch,
the same one she usually pairs with the Prada pumps.
