Kate Middleton for the Jubilee Win: Red, Pleated, McQueen

Hey you guys, there's a new Kate sighting to report! The Duchess of Cambridge was seen today at Diamond Jubilee festivities for the Queen alongside William and Harry (in uniform and looking quite dapper!) Now to the dress: bright red, pleats, McQueen. We likey. Yes, it's a little shades of pale-pink-Emilia-Wickstead, and maybe a little safe, but it's also ladylike, pleats are flattering on Catherine, and it's vibrant without threatening to overshadow the Queen (who is quite ravishing in white and silver Angela Kelly). So all in all? A win in our books.

The original McQueen--previously worn by...Kim Kardashian and Tulisa?--is shorter, sleeveless and belted. While Kate's version is much more covered up it's also more appropriate for the riverboat pageant.

Kate's hat is being reported as Sylvia Fletcher for Lock + Co and she's also sporting her go-to nude pumps and Kiki Mcdonough earrings. Kate's other accessories include a brooch featuring two dolphins (apparently a gift from the Royal Navy Submarine Service) and a scarf in the new Strathearn tartan (the Cambridges' title in Scotland.)

Kate's bow box clutch is similar to the McQueen above, although sans skull clasp. We're kinda disappointed by that, honestly. Skulls are pretty awesome.

The Queen and Camills colour coordinated. Huzzah!

Oh gawd, the Middletons are in the house.
Pippa and James -- le sigh.

What do you think of Kate's McQueen?
