Is the Duchess of Cambridge\s new polka dot dress the royal trend of the year?
Thrifty Kate Middleton recycles glam evening gown
And Kate Middleton has done it again, by re-wearing this stunning designer gown, created by Jenny Packham.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who has just come back from maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis in April, attended the Tusk Conservation Awards in London with Prince William last night.

The stunning dress is perfectly tailored to Kates slim body, has a daring lace back and an almost mermaid-like glow when she walks.

Theres also no doubt that Kate would have reworn the dress to take the attention away from herself, so that the night is all about Prince William and his passion for the conservation of tusk and fight against illegal wildlife trade.

The Duchess has previously adopted this strategy for royal events where she doesnt want the limelight on her and what she wears.

At Meghan Markle and Prince Harrys wedding, the mum-of-three rewore an Alexander McQueen white coat she had previously worn at an official royal event.

Indeed, the night was all about conservation efforts of the charity, with Prince William taking to the stage to deliver a passionate speech.

Two years ago at this event, Sir David Attenborough warned that man is losing his own connection with nature, Prince William said in a speech at the event.

The IPCCs recent report was the loudest warning bell yet from the scientific community that we must act now.

The clock is ticking towards a tipping point when the impact of what we are doing will become dangerously irreversible.

Kate Middleton is no stranger to re-wearing items. While she has access to every designer under the sun, she chooses to bring back her favorite pieces from her closet time and time again, including the boots shes worn for over a decade and her go-to affordable shoes. This time around, she resurrected a memorable Jenny Packham gown from 2012, and it looks just as stunning six years later.

Walking the red carpet for the Tusk Conservation Awards in London, the Duchess of Cambridge wore the beautiful dress with a matching clutch and diamond earrings. But if you havent seen the gown from the back, youre missing out: The sheer lace details are simply stunning. Who else wishes that Middleton made more red carpet appearances?
