An explosive red carpet that of the premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in Leicester Square. Kate Middleton was able to overshadow a celebrity of the likes of Tom Cruise arriving at the Royal Film Performance with a dress of Roland Mouret black, long to the feet and white in the boat neckline.
Less sparkling than the previous red carpet, that of No Time To Diebut no less diva for this evening in favor of Film and TV Charity, the body that supports UK film industry workers. The brand appears as an unexpected choice by the Duchess of Cambridge, who abandons Jenny Packham or Alexander McQueen for one night in favor of a fashion house that has also dressed her sister-in-law several times Meghan (not to mention that neckline, the figure of the American Duchess).
Who instead chose McQueen it was her husband, very elegant in his dark tuxedo to whom William combined a curious pair of shoes. A gamble for the prince, usually quite immune to extravagance, who couldn’t resist wanting to pay homage to the Hollywood film with a pair of designer slippers Crockett & Jones embroidered with two F-18 Super Hornets, one on each foot, the fighter piloted by Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, the character played by Tom Cruise.
Returning to Kate, royal fashion experts have not escaped the resemblance to another royal dress. There Queen Maxima she showed off for a concert in Amsterdam in 2017 an outfit that was always black with the same white boat neckline and also of Roland Mouret. The only difference was a full suit and not a suit.
This name was a little off the radar. The designer’s namesake brand became famous with the Galaxy dressa model worn by numerous celebrities such as Victoria Beckham, Dita Von Teese And Cameron Diaz, just to name a few, he ended up in receivership last November. The brand, despite the business was booming, suffered a collapse due to the pandemic. At the end of the year, however, the news of the rescue of the brand by Han Chongfounder of Self-Portraitanother much loved label by Kate.
Roland Mouret himself will remain as creative director. On the site that is nothing more than one landing page we read a date, autumn 2022, which should indicate the brand’s return to the track. Waiting for the return, an exceptional testimonial turns the spotlight back on the signature with a dress that is already in history. The “Kate effect” never contradicts itself.
