Kate Middleton recycled a red carpet favorite for her appearance at the inaugural Earthshot Prize on Sunday.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who walked the bright green carpet alongside her husband Prince William, remade a gorgeous Alexander McQueen for the event, which was held at Alexandra Palace in London.
She had already donned the outfit in 2011, for a BAFTA “Brits to Watch” event in Los Angeles.
The Duke of Cambridge sported a bold look on Sunday, wearing a black turtleneck and slacks with a green velvet jacket.
As rated by Alison Eastwood, the editor-in-chief of Hello! Canada, William first wore the blazer at the Centrepoint Housing Charity’s 50th Anniversary Charity Gala in 2019.
While dress recycling is still in fashion, attendees, who did not fly for the prizes, were encouraged to consider the environment when dressing for the event. Actress and presenter Emma Thompson, who received the title Lady of William in 2018, told People magazine about the dress code.
“On our little notes they said ‘Please don’t buy anything new for this.’ Can you imagine Relief ! Thompson said. “So I had my lady’s costume that I wore when I went to the palace.”
In addition to Thompson, ‘Harry Potter’ alumnus Emma Watson walked the green carpet – her first in two years – in an outfit made from recycled wedding dresses.
Ed Sheeran, KSI, Coldplay and singer Yemi Alade performed at the ceremony, while judges David Attenborough, Cate Blanchett and Shakira helped choose the award winners.
William appeared in a pre-recorded message at the ceremony, telling attendees that “we are alive at the most important time in human history.”
“The actions we choose or choose not to take over the next 10 years will determine the fate of the planet for the next thousand,” he said. “A decade does not seem long, but humanity has an exceptional record of capacity to solve the insoluble. The future is for us to determine. And if we think about it, nothing is impossible.
