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.
2012 saw Middleton arriving with William at the BOA Olympic Concert in London, wearing a deep teal Packham gown. Her flowing number included lacy capped sleeves with a deep neckline and cinched waistline.
At the 2013 Tusk Conservation Awards, Middleton sparkled with Prince William on the red carpet in a sweeping dusty gold number by Packham. Her long style — paired with platform-soled stiletto peep-toe’s beneath — featured a draped neckline coated in allover sequins.
For the premiere of James Bond film “No Time to Die” in 2021, Middleton ventured out for a night with Prince William in a gleaming gold Packham gown. The viral ensemble featured a deep neckline and cape silhouette with intricate metallic beading, paired with shiny gold statement earrings and Aquazzura’s cutout Fenix pumps.
At a 2022 reception for members of the Diplomatic Corps, Middleton sparkled in a red Packham gown, featuring long sleeves and sparkling, swirling floral embroidery. Paired with the regal ensemble was an equally regal accessory: the royal Lotus Flower Tiara.
