Kate Middleton Just Wore the Most Elegant Formfitting Red Carpet Gown

The Duchess of Cambridge doesn't often walk the red carpet, but when she does, she typically wears all things sparkly and ornate. So when Kate Middleton was photographed last night at the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in London, my jaw dropped when I saw her impossibly beautiful dress devoid of all embellishments. She traded in sequins for a sleek black-and-white column gown that I'd argue is her most elegant look to date. 

Middleton wore a Roland Mouret gown on the red carpet, where she met the movie's stars Tom Cruise and Jennifer Connelly. How's that for a Hollywood-Kensington crossover? Scroll down to see all the photos from the glamorous event held in Leicester Square.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 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.
