As Kate Middleton continues her whirlwind tour of Sweden alongside husband Prince William, she’s been displaying a revitalized sense of style. Experimenting with patterned Erdem pieces—a fitting choice, given designer Erdem Moralıoğlu’s Windsor-themed Spring 2018 collection—during her first few nights in the country, Middleton switched gears today by revisiting one of her favorite labels, Alexander McQueen. Sarah Burton has created some of Middleton’s most memorable looks, including her wedding gown, and today's sweeping pale pink gown with crystal detailing provided the grandeur and refinement we’ve come to expect from the world’s most famous duchess.
Given that she's currently expecting her third child, Middleton’s choice of a flowing, empire-waisted silhouette makes sense in terms of ease of wear, but Burton’s design wasn’t just flattering. With its creamy color and sparkling details, it highlighted Middleton’s pregnancy glow, providing a radiant compliment to her understated diamond earrings and megawatt smile.
