Well, this is a pair of style twins we didn't see coming. Kate Middleton attended the Thames Pageant in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee on Sunday wearing a red Alexander McQueen dress that has previously been photographed on Kim Kardashian, of all people (you can see that here). Sarah Burton reportedly customized Kate's version with long sleeves and a knee-length hem, and Kate accessoized with those nude L.K. Bennett pumps she's so fond of, plus a red fascinator and matching clutch designed by Sylvia Fletcher. While Kim, of course, went more in the snake-skin Louboutin direction with her look, so there's that to distinguish them. But still... you'd think Sarah Burton's people might have given the DoC a heads up. Click through to see the full look.
