Kate Middleton just repeated another outfit!
Back in November, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Royal Variety performance in London which featured performances from Ed Sheeran, Rod Stewart, and James Blunt. The annual Royal Variety Performance supports the Royal Variety Charity, which raises money to help entertainers throughout the U.K. who “need help and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health, or hard times,” per People. A recorded version of the event aired Sunday night on ITV HD.
For the occasion, Middleton wore an emerald green Jenny Packham gown that she originally donned during a tour of Pakistan back in 2019. The striking green glittery column dress with long sleeves is a perfect fit for the holidays, and a staple anyone – even the Duchess of Cambridge – can re-wear for years to come.
The Duchess styled the look with gold drop earrings and made the whole outfit monochrome with a green sequin clutch and green pointed-toe heels. She wore her signature brown hair in a side part and to the side with gorgeous, glamorous curls. For makeup, she kept it simple with some black eyeliner, blush, and a berry lip to match.

And here she is in the Jenny Packham gown in 2019:
This demonstrates how slight styling adjustments can change up a look. The dress is a memorable piece that is so sparkly it does not require much accessorizing, but with little tweaks in hair and accessories, even a sequin staple like this can look different over the years.
This is just the most recent time Kate Middleton has recycled wardrobe staples. In October, Middleton attended the 2021 Earthshot Prize awards ceremony wearing a fan-favorite from a decade ago: an Alexander McQueen dress she wore to a black-tie BAFTA event in Los Angeles back in 2011. She wore the lilac McQueen gown in July 2011, a few months after her wedding to Prince William. We love to see it.
