Duchess Kate wears Alexander McQueen for Prince George christening

Why fix what's not broken?
Duchess Kate proved she sticks by tradition — at least where her fashion is concerned, by wearing one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen, along with a Jane Taylor fascinator, to her son Prince George's christening on Wednesday.
While the baby wore vintage (a long, lacy christening gown also worn by his father at his own baptism), new mom Kate opted for a chic, ruffled cream ensemble by the brand responsible for her famous lace wedding gown.
Kate, 31, has worn the luxury British brand repeatedly in the last few years, including while playing field hockey (as one does) and throughout her pregnancy.
When asked about designing Kate's wedding gown, Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton told Interview magazine in 2012: “I’m not actually allowed to talk much about it at all...It was a precious, magical time that I’ll always treasure, and I feel like (Kate) gave me a gift in many ways. I feel incredibly privileged.”
