Google only had one green Emilia wickstead dress for the DOCa. Itís nothing like this one.

DM are saying itís from the autumn range but watches are spotting differences so this looks to be an altered or custom piece.

Catherine has dresses of a similar style to this.

I believe this dress is new.
She does own several dresses/coats in this colour:

From what I can see; Catherine looked gorgeous tonight - that shade of green suits her a lot!

The only thing good I can say is at least it isn't blue.

Another unmemorable look that leaves people wondering 'is it new'

Green is certainly one of her best colors.

WHAT KATE WORE identifies the dress as McQueen.

That site speculated that a wide range of styles were in evidence, so perhaps no one was given any guidelines for the event.

Kate's dress is a very conservative dress in a bright color; what to wear when you are unsure. I think she looks lovely.

Looks like Rebecca English changed her tune this morning, last night it was Wickstead.

Yep they are all posting the updated info. Still..why another dress very similar to a green dress you already have. I don't get that. If it was a different color then yeah ...but she just wore a green dress in the same general style.

Have to say I agree. Just because you can, doesnít mean you should. It does seem an unnecessary addition to her wardrobe.

It is difficult to comment on the specific style of dress the Duchess is wearing fro the NATO reception as we do not have any pictures displaying much of the dress.

As to why another dress in the same colour, i think most of the others in similar colours are coats or coat dresses, hardly appropriate for an indoor event. The only dress of hers in a similar shade of green that I can think of that might be appropriate for such an event was a Mulberry one dating back from 2012 that she wore to an event at the Natural History Musueum.

It looks very similar to another green dress she wore recently. If it was a totally different style the color wouldn't really matter. No one has said it's not appropriate etc etc.

Might you be referring to the fitted coat dress with white trousers worn in Pakistan, or perhaps the modern green boucle dress with the "eye" pockets she wore to a school last winter, or the dress she wore in LA for an event in 2011? Post 42 on this page has quite a lot of her dresses and coats in similar colours.

Catherine has worn a number of green dresses over the years and several this year, but as Muriel has pointed out, there were only two outfits in this shade of green this year. This one is very different from those two-neither would have been suitable for this event.

I am not the only person who felt like this dress was very similar to another one she has worn this year. You don't have to agree. Repeating the same thing over to me is not going to make any difference in my view.

This one for the similarity?

Or?

https://www.gettyimages.com.au/detai...-kantor-centre
https://www.gettyimages.com.au/detai...nch-familyline

She also had a couple dark green coats and a dark green evening gown, but that seems to be it this year (so far) for green.

I'm just trying to figure out why people think it looks familiar.

What Kate Wore has the dress on her site. Beulah Yahvi dress in green. It would of been totally suitable for the Reception. It is in a very similar style as the McQueen she did wear.
