Get Kate’s Style: Lilac McQueen dress & Jimmy Choo pumps

If you loved Kate’s grecian-style lilac Alexander McQueen dress and champagne Jimmy Choo sandals at the BAFTAs and you want to achieve a similar look for yourself read on!

Lilac floaty grecian-style dresses like Kate’s:

Dress similar to Kate Middleton BAFTAs Dress similar to Kate's at the BAFTAS

Left to right: the dress on the left comes with a black silk sash, but could be accessorised with a glittery silver belt instead to achieve Kate’s style.  Both dresses are quite similar, but the dress on the right has the edge with its pleated fabric and sparkly belt. It’s very ‘Kate’!

Neither dress has the structured shoulders or high neckline of Kate’s BAFTA dress, but I believe this makes the dress more versatile, as not everybody has Kate’s figure.  As someone who is very curvy and a serial strapless maxi dress wearer, I can attest to this cut of dress being very flattering!

Both dresses are from Coast and can be purchased in the US and UK:

Left: Mancini Tulle Maxi Dress, on sale $160 / £154

Right: Beth Maxi Dress, on sale $150 / £85

Here’s a reminder of Kate’s dress for those who wish to make a comparison!

Jimmy Choo shoes:

If you need the perfect pair of shoes to accessorise your lilac dress with, but can’t quite stretch to (or find) a pair of Jimmy Choos, this pair from Barratts is an amazingly affordable alternative and they’re not too dissimilar either:

Both pairs of stiletto platforms are strappy and of a similar colour.
