Kate in Alexander McQueen for Prince George’s christening

This afternoon (well, in the UK at least) Prince William and Catherine took baby George for his christening ceremony at the Chapel Royal in St. James’ Palace. I wrote an extensive post earlier detailing all the ins and outs of the ceremony, so check that out now if you’re not up to date with the all details about little George’s godparents, what was scheduled to happen after the ceremony and more. This post is purely about Kate’s style!

To the christening, Kate wore a cream outfit, complete with matching hat adorned with flowers.

Kate appeared to be wearing either a skirt or dress with a ruffled jacket over the top, or a ruffled coat dress.   At the moment, it’s very hard to tell without better pictures.

The consensus is that Kate’s wearing Alexander McQueen, which appears to be supported by journalists on Twitter.  We think the piece is bespoke.  Here’s a very similar style from the label’s 2013 Spring/Summer collection – although Kate’s skirt part of the outfit is different:

Kate Middleton White Ruffled Alexander McQueen

Is Kate wearing a variation of this white ruffled Alexander McQueen jacket?

It’s already been confirmed that Kate’s white-cream floral hat/fascinator is by Jane Taylor Millinery:

We believe that Kate’s wearing her white Russell and Bromley “Park Ave” shoes, seen last year on tour.

  1. Thank you for the great post! Kate looks stunning just wow in this McQueen dress. The baby looks just like both of them when young. I love how cute he is you just want to hug and kiss him. I am surprised that neither Harry or Pippa were chosen as godparents but very happy with the choices especially Zara and Diana’s close friend’s son as this is a beautiful way to honour his mother. I also like that they chose a catholic as well as that is rarely done due to old fashioned religious custom.
    What a delight cannot wait for official photos tomorrow.

  2. I hope that matching mother and baby christening outfits does not become a trend. Nice outfit but in a different colour.
