PARIS, France – Not only was the Platinum Jubilee a huge celebration of the Queen’s 70 – year reign, but the event also provided us all with some unforgettable royal style moments. In particular, the Duchess of Cambridge made a big impression on fans with her fashion during the historic event.

Kate wore a number of stylish ensembles over the four – day event, starting with the Trooping The Colour parade, where she re – wore an Alexander McQueen ivory – hue coat dress, teaming it with a Philip Treacy fascinator and earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana.
Her Platinum Jubilee wardrobe also included a playful yellow Emilia Wichstead dress for the church service, a white Self – Portrait co – ord for the concert, a bright red coat from Eponine London for her trip to Cardiff and a pink Stella McCartney dress for the final day of festivities.
