Kate Middleton's love affair with lace continues at St Andrews fundraiser

The Duchess of Cambridge steps out in Temperley lace gown from War Horse premiere on London outing with Prince William

Kate Middleton proved she's still in the grip of a love affair with lace as she recycled a Temperley gown at a St Andrews University fundraising gala last night.

The Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles as she stepped out in the elegant, floor-scraping couture gown, just 11 months after she first donned the dress for the War Horse premiere.

Making sure to update her look for the season, Kate shunned the black accessories she wore the first time around and instead opted for a pillarbox-red and gold clutch, complete with a sparkling poppy pin.


With her hair in tousled waves around her shoulders, she kept the rest of her accessories to a minimum for the outing with Prince William - letting her dress do all the talking.

And it's a cause close to both of their hearts, as St Andrews is of course where the pair first met in 2005.
