Kate Middleton’s Jenny Packham Dresses Over the Years That Made Elegant Statements

Kate Middleton wears numerous designers in her duties as a princess. However, there’s one in particular that’s become synonymous with her elegant, streamlined style for over a decade: Jenny Packham.

Packam is the British eveningwear fashion designer responsible for some of Middleton’s most famed and viral ensembles over the years. Whether Middleton’s ensembles veer on the more classic or trend-based side, they’ve almost exclusively hailed from Packham. Case in point: the designer crafted her golden gown worn to 2021’s “James Bond: No Time to Die” premiere, as well as the sparkling red dress worn at this year’s Buckingham Palace reception for Diplomatic Corps members — paired with the Lotus Flower Tiara.

Oftentimes, Middleton’s Packham outfits are styled with matching or complementary pointed-toe pumps. Like Packham’s designs, the style has also become synonymous with Middleton’s wardrobe since she entered the public eye. Below, discover Middleton’s top moments in Jenny Packham over the years.

In 2011, Middleton stepped out with Prince William for the ARK’s 10th anniversary gala — their first outing since marrying earlier that year. For the occasion, she wore a blush-pink Packham gown with flounced sleeves and dark silver beading, paired with matching L.K. Bennett heeled sandals.
