Kate Middleton Lit Up the James Bond Red Carpet in a Glittering Gold Jenny Packham Gown
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attended her first red carpet event in quite a while, and she certainly made an entrance. The duchess wore an opulent gold gown to the premiere of No Time to Die at London's Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday, 28 Sept. There's always a subtle reference with Kate's statement outfits, and the James Bond premiere was no different. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the twisted-front design and general silhouette of her dress was very similar to the gown Princess Diana wore to the 1985 premiere of another James Bond film, A View to a Kill.
Kate's gold Jenny Packham gown was likely a custom creation as it takes design cues from Packham's Simona, Christina, and Margot gowns from the designer's autumn/winter 2021 collection, according to What Kate Wore. The gown features generous amounts of gold sequins, beads, and embellishments, as well as structured caped shoulders and a plunging V-neckline. Kate paired the look with Aquazzura gold Fenix heels, and gold O'nitaa earrings that the duchess wore on her 2019 trip to Pakistan.
