Remember the gorgeous lavender one she worn in the U.S. after they got married? I would LOVE to see that one again too...but I guess we never will at this rate.

The blue one in Germany too...loved that one as well.

The fit on that black velvet gown is astounding!

I wonder if Catherine will follow suit. She rewears her gowns regularly, but I think she’s always worn a new dress for the BAFTAs before.
If she does, my top picks are (with some new-to-her jewelry):

The black Velvet above is my least favourite of them all.

I love all of these dresses, and would be thrilled to see any of them again, although the blue and the white ones she wore on the India tour would be at the top of my list.

It and the first blue one I listed were worn on tours and I really hope Catherine hasn’t relegated them to '‘not for the UK’’ section of her closet. She does a lot of themed dressing on tours, so some clothes don’t travel well, but I think most would work fine in the UK.
Also two shorter dresses from tours I hope get another chance to shine:

Another great dress, and an example of a dress she’s worn a couple of times already.
I think we can be sure that she will be criticised by some people whatever she does.
If by criticism you mean people saying anything but she is stunning, beautiful epitome of grace, the ideal image of womanly beauty (sure I missed a few) yes I agree. Not liking someone’s fashion choices isn’t criticism. It’s fashion.

But yeah when inviters are specifically asked to follow a dress code, it does seem obtuse at best to ignore it. Especially when a few dozen gowns you can recycle.

She has a number of lovely gowns some she only wore once or long time ago. Different jewelry and styling works miracles.

No, I meant that if she wears a repeat some in media will say that she is royal and should be above these rules and if she doesn’t wear a repeat some in media will say that she doesn’t care about the environment.

In case you missed it, I’m actually not a stan of any royal and that kind of thinking doesn’t even occur to me. Interesting that it’s something you would assume about others.

This is a dress I hope Catherine repeats quite often. It has a certain "wow" factor to it. Its a bit alluding to being a period design yet modern. Simple yet elegant. I especially love the fuller skirt on Catherine because then when she walks, she looks like she's actually floating across the floor.

YES! It was one of my top picks
And new Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra jewelry. Camilla is also a fan. Wonder if it’s a gift from Charles, or a wedding gift from someone like Prince Albert of Monaco (Charlene wears the line).
Although gold would work better with her fabulous dress.

Would love to see her re-wear this one!

Congrats you two, you guessed the dress that others on twitter were very surprised with this evening.

It is a shame that Catherine seems to be the only attendee recycling a dress, no celebrities appear to be doing the same.

She looks fabulous in this dress - it wasn't my 1st choice for a recycled one but I love seeing it again.

I’ve been hoping to see this dress again for 7 years
That tour was fabulous, I want to see most of those clothes worn again and we haven’t see much of it repeated.

Actresses usually borrow gowns for the red carpet so my guess is they don’t own anything they could recycle. I did expect to see some vintage pieces though.

I've never liked this dress it gives me the impression that it's been pulled down at the front exposing her bra.

Kate certainly is not alone. Designers don’t just loan out gowns once. Many of the attendees are wearing gowns borrowed from designers that have been worn by other people. BAFTA also encouraged using designers like Stella who use eco friendly materials and processes. Not just about recycling. A lot of people like Meghan have taken to wearing eco friendly designers.

I love she recycled a tour gown. Usually she only ever repeats day looks from tours and even that is rare. Not my favorite of her tour gowns, I’d have lived to see her blue one from India but still.

Lovely jewelry. Yes brand Camilla has number of pieces from.
