The Temperley London Black Lace Gown Seen on Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton in that black lace gown at the UK premiere of War Horse back in January of this year remains to be one of her best fashion moments to this day.

She turned heads but also retained an air of mystery around her. She was classically beautiful yet also stylishly elegant — she was floating and gliding down that red carpet:

This dress made a huge impact on me, and I’m sure to many as well, so as soon as I saw this Temperley London ‘Amoret’ lace gown among the new arrivals at Shopbop, I instantly recognized it as the dress Kate Middleton wore to the War Horse premiere:

There’s no mistaking that flowy skirt and statuesque cut for anything else. This is the black lace gown seen on the Duchess of Cambridge.

This elegant design comes at a steep price of $2,520. Our favorite look-for-less versions of it remain to be these black lace gowns with similar nude lining from Tadashi Shoji:
