Kate Middleton may not be a movie star, but she certainly knows how to dress for the role.
Earlier in the week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended Top Gun: Maverick premiere. For the event on the red carpet, Kate wore a stunning off-the-shoulder dress by designer Roland Mouret with a pair of pointed toe Prada pumps and a jewel-studded Alexander McQueen boxing clutch. To complete the glamorous look, she hid her sleek, straight hair behind her ears.
As with almost everything the Duchess wears, her black-and-white dress caused an internet search. Within 24 hours of the film’s premiere, searches for the term “Bardot dress” increased by 263 percent according to Love the Sales, and there was also an increase in demand for “black and white dresses”.
The best part is that you do not need a fancy red carpet premiere to wear an elegant off-the-shoulder dress. The Bardot-inspired style would be a great guest wedding dress if you are going to a summer wedding with a formal dress code. It exudes sophistication with a touch of fun.
