Kate Middleton’s £3450 one shoulder dress, which was designed by Alexander McQueen features an asymmetrical design with a puff sleeve and cinched-in waist detail. This stunning red dress paired with some statement diamond earrings made for the perfect regal look.

A spokesperson for Dalston-Mill Fabrics commented on the findings:

“The Duchess of Cambridge’s fortieth birthday portraits highlight her timeless and elegant style.

The Duchess has an extraordinary ability to create an effortlessly classy look and she knows which brands and designers work best for her, with Alexander McQueen being a brand she used for her wedding, over ten years ago. Her clever use of wearing the same brands over and over again means that she manages to build an image for herself that is easily identifiable.”
