Kate Middleton re-wore her Alexander McQueen powder blue coat in Arromanches, France to pay homage at the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The coat last made an appearance on the tour Down Under with Prince William, withstanding a climb into a plane Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre as the couple helped kick off a year-long commemoration of WWI in Blenheim, New Zealand. McQueen, for all your military occasion needs.

But this time, Kate styled the coat with a black fascinator, pumps and clutch. She topped the look off with diamond and sapphire earrings, an heirloom from Diana, given to her by William. Take a look at the full look below, plus a back-o-the-head close-up should you be wondering how to style your hair underneath that fascinator. (Hint: Definitely opt for the blowout.)
