Back in 2020, Kate was literally the belle of Buckingham Palace at a royal reception, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. Kate stole the show in a majorly sparkly red dress by Needle & Thread.

Kate looked ravishing in Needle & Thread in 2020

The 'Aurora' cherry red gown was decorated with silver shimmering sequins, inspired by vintage lace tablecloth. The long sleeve number was made in an uber-flattering, A-line silhouette with delicate frill lace detailing around the neck and arms. As soon as Kate stepped out in it, it sold out.

Just over a year later, Holly dazzled fans in the same N&T red sequin dress but in a slightly longer length. What a cracker of a frock!

The cult fashion line was founded by former model Susie Cave as a capsule collection in 2014. Since then, countless stars have worn its signature styles on the red carpet and beyond - from Margot Robbie to Alexa Chung, Amber Heard, Busy Phillips, Chloë Grace Moretz, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Aniston.

Holly wore a stunning red Ghost dress on This Morning last year...

In 2019, Wylde Moon founder Holly stepped out in a navy blue, polka dot dress by Beulah London - a brand worn by Kate and her sister Pippa. Holly wore the 'Shalini Long Dress' which was made in a shirt style and a fitted waist.

And later, in July 2020, Kate followed suit by wearing the very same Beulah dress. We bet Holly was flattered! The Duchess finished her outfit by styling her hair in a chic ponytail and adding her Patrick Mavros 'Ocean Tides' earrings.
