Kate Middleton Just Wore the Prettiest Emerald Green Gown in Ireland

Kate Middleton stunned in an edgier-than-usual green dress on Tuesday, during the second appearance of her and Prince William’s Ireland tour, which spans March 3 to 5. The Duchess of Cambridge attended an evening reception at Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, and served a strong lesson in how to look elegant while holding a stout beer. But the royal didn’t abandon her trendsetting duties of the night, because she simultaneously cemented metallics as a trend to watch this spring. Casual.

The silk chiffon gown from celebrity-approved brand, The Vampire’s Wife, is a bold emerald green—the same shade as the floor-length peacoat Kate wore while touching down in Dublin for the tour kickoff. The mother-of-three stepped off the plane wearing a patterned Alessandra Rich dress, a Catherine Walker coat, and a coordinated green clutch and pumps—making for a smart precursor to the glimmering nighttime look.

Kate isn’t the only royal crossing over to the dark side with the unconventional gown, because Princess Beatrice was spotted in a strikingly similar Vampire’s Wife gown at Ellie Goulding’s wedding in September.
