Countdown to the BAFTAs- What will Kate wear?

Tomorrow the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the 2020 award ceremony for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, commonly referred to as the BAFTAs.

Prince William, who took over as President f the BAFTAs a decade ago from his Grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who was appointed in 1959.

William will take to the stage to present the BAFTA’s highest accolade, the Fellowship to Kathleen Kennedy.

The American film producer is behind movies such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

This is the fourth year in a row the royal couple will attend the awards ceremony together.

The ceremony is set to take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

This year the BAFTAs have asked attendees to ‘make sustainable choices’ on the red carpet to help the event lessen their carbon footprint.

To achieve these attendees are being asked to consider renting clothing, buying vintage outfits or wearing something they already have in their closet.

With a large selection of beautiful gowns in the Duchess of Cambridge’s closet, I thought I would take a look back at my three past favourites I hope to see her wear again.

Jenny Packham Pink Sequin Gown

My favourite gown Kate has ever worn remains this blush pink sequin gown by Jenny Packham the Duchess first wore to the ARK Gala dinner on 9th June 2011.

The stunning gown is from the designer’s Spring 2011 RTW collection and retailed for $5000 USD.

A work of art- it features pearlescent rose Swarovski crystals on a mesh overlay.

Siz years later, the Duchess recycled the glamorous gown to wear to a charity fundraising dinner at Houghton Hall for one of her patronages, east Anglican Children’s hospital.

Alexander McQueen Lilac Chiffon gown

Another apt choice for Kate to wear would be her Lilac Chiffon gown she wore to a BAFTA event in LA in 2011.

Designed by Alexander McQueen, who also made her wedding gown, this stunning dress has only been seen in public on one occasion.

The custom made piece featured a flowing Grecian style and a crystal belt.

Jenny Packham One Shoulder Silver gown

My final pick for Kate is another design by Jenny Packham.

The Duchess wore this shimmering dress to a reception and dinner held at St. Jame’s Palace in November 2011.

The event was in aid of the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal, which Prince William is a patron of.

Designed as a one-off in silver for Kate, the gown had a matching sash around the waist and as the event was held the day before Armistice Day, the Duchess coordinated with a remembrance poppy.

What favourite gown are you hoping Kate might wear again?
