Kate’s recycled dress leaves fans confused

Kate Middleton loves to recycle her outfits.

But this latest re-use of her wardrobe has left fans confused as the Duchess of Cambridge appears to have somehow added sleeves to her iconic Alexander McQueen gown.

The 37-year-old wore the floral off-the-shoulder design to the BAFTAs in 2017, but stepped out in the gown dress again last night at the 2019 Portrait Gala.

This time though, the dress features some cute as a button cap sleeves, which undoubtedly creates a more demure appearance.

However while some think the gown has undergone a slight alteration, some fans believe there’s a lot more to the fresh new appearance of the gown than a minor tweak.

Some eagle-eyed social media users are saying it’s actually a whole new dress as it has a completely different shape and neckline.

Others agreed, saying they couldn’t “match” the locations of the flowers on both gowns — meaning she must have had two dresses.

However some Kate fans disagreed, believing the thrifty fashion icon pulled a Marge Simpson and had the original dress “deconstructed” and reworked — praising her for the clever recycling.

It’s not just the theories surrounding the gown that has divided fans, with debate over whether they preferred the original Bardot neckline or the newer take on it.

There were heaps of ‘yes’ votes on the cap sleeves.

However some disapproved, saying they preferred the original version.

While others were just downright confused about how the heck you’d fashion sleeves on a dress that had none before.

Mum-of-three Kate has been making some bold fashion statements recently, as she also divided the internet yesterday over her $1495 Gucci blouse.

While she wore the purple shirt with buttons down the front, fans suggested the design was meant to be worn the other way — suggesting Kate had stepped out in a back-to-front shirt.
