Kate Middleton Just Wore Head-to-Toe Glittering Sequins on the Red Carpet

Last week, we were treated to a rare red carpet appearance by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and now we're spoiled with a glam showing courtesy of Kate Middleton and Prince William. The couple arrived at the Royal Variety Performance at Royal Albert Hall in London, and they dressed to the nines for the occasion.

The Duchess of Cambridge rewore her green Jenny Packham gown that we first saw on her tour of Pakistan in 2019, while the duke complemented her emerald dress with a jewel-tone velvet blazer. Middleton's intricate dress is made with hundreds of sequins and definitely turned heads on the red carpet. Sequins, of course, are a trend that comes back with a vengeance every holiday party season, so I rounded up some of my favorite ways to wear them below.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
