Kate Middleton Wore Her Most Intricate Updo Yet to the James Bond Premiere


Kate Middleton may not be an official Bond girl in Daniel Craig’s highly-anticipated No Time to Die, but she certainly looked the part when she arrived at the film’s world premiere in London on Tuesday night.

Joined by husband Prince William (as well as Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles), the Duchess of Cambridge totally lit up the red carpet in a glittering gold Jenny Packham gown, complete with structured statement shoulders and a dramatic embellished cape. 

It was a look that served straight glamour from head to toe and one that also gave royal watchers everywhere a serious case of déjà vu. As royal style expert Elizabeth Holmes pointed out, Middleton’s dress bore a strong resemblance to the metallic Bruce Oldfield gown that her mother-in-law Princess Diana wore to the 1985 Bond premiere of A View to a Kill.

But sweet tribute aside, the Duchess of Cambridge’s 007 moment is also particularly notable because not only is it one of the more glamorous looks that we’ve seen from her in recent years, but it also gave us yet another iconic hair moment.

For a red carpet this major, Middleton’s hairstylist Amanda Cook Tucker dreamed up a style so beautifully intricate that it honestly needs to be seen from every single angle:

Stunning, right?

Middleton usually tends to keep her hairstyles a bit more classic and conservative — her trademark bouncy blowout and chignons come to mind— so seeing this more elaborate style on her is such a treat. This intricate swirled up gives off such an Old Hollywood-meets-Grecian goddess vibe that’s truly befitting of the future queen.
