Seven weeks after baby was born, we were psyched to get out of the house wearing something other than sweat pants. But if you’re Kate Middleton, a striped tee and jeans can only get you so far. At some point evening wear is required!
For her first event after the birth of son George, a fundraiser for wildlife conservation group Tusk Trust, Kate chose a sequined floor-length Jenny Packham gown, according to The Daily Mail. Not only was the gown sparkly and chic, it was a pretty strategic choice for a mama who may still be nursing.
The drapey top hides the lines from nursing pads and the back looks like it unbuttons for easy access to “the girls”—because even princesses need to pump if they're nursing a 2-month-old. And the rough texture of the sequins would hide any undergarment lines. Because we’re really hoping that she at least had to wear Spanx.
