Kate Middleton tends to favor monochromatic, form-fitting (but not too form-fitting) looks with an occasional tiara. Monday morning, however, the Duchess of Cambridge allowed herself to have some room for fun during the premiere of Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas in Piccadilly with Prince William and Prince Harry. The trio attended the premiere with children from the charities they support.

For the animated movie's debut, Kate wore a $480 Tabitha Webb dress that's technically still available, but "due to popular demand delivery might take up to four weeks." The "Meg Space" knee-length dress was the center of attention as Kate walked across the stage with children in an animation workshop. The occasion also gave the royal Twitter account an excuse to use the hashtag #LlamaDrama.

Prince William and Kate, who don't go to movie premieres often, will be attending another later in the day. The two are expected to walk the red carpet at the world premiere of Spectre, the new James Bond film starring Daniel Craig so we could be in for two looks in one day.
