When Kate Middleton stepped out in a blue silk lace Elie Saab dress at Ascot in 2019, royal fashion fans swooned at what is one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s most picture-perfect outfits ever. And incredibly, as noted by MiddletonMaven on Twitter, there's a fabulous summer dress by Self-Portrait that will give you all the Kate vibes. And while Duchess Kate’s bespoke outfit is estimated to have cost thousands, the chiffon Self-Portrait dress is priced at £300.

Kate Middleton looked absolutely beautiful at Ascot 2019 in the bespoke Elie Saab dress with pussy bow collar

Duchess Kate absolutely stunned in Elie Saab look, which she combined with a Philip Treacy hat worn over her upswept chignon hairstyle and silver Gianvito Rossi shoes. Metallic heels would also be a great finishing touch for the pretty Self-Portrait dress, which is in a summery pastel blue colour just like Kate’s couture, and has similar long sleeves, lace accents and a pussy bow at the neckline.

And here's a fun fact: Duchess Kate's sister-in-law Meghan Markle happens to be a major fan of Self-Portrait. Meghan has not only worn Self-Portrait dresses during her royal life – such as a green print dress in Australia and a black outfit for her first Christmas with the royals – but she was also wearing the brand already during her pre-Harry days.
