The Duchess of Cambridge has sparkled in every trend from pleats to stripes, but it seems she’s picked up on one look in particular lately: lace.

The birthday girl (she’s 30 today!) wore a lacy floor-length gown by Alice Temperley to the U.K. premiere of War Horse Sunday, pairing the dress with her own jewels. She’d previously worn lace in September, turning heads in a red Collette Dinnigan frock at a friend’s wedding in Wilton, Wiltshire.

Kate also turned to the delicate fabric twice during her North American tour last summer; for her first appearance on Canadian soil in June, the Duchess chose a navy-and-white lace dress by Canadian-born designer Erdem Moralioglu. Days later, she sported another Erdem creation, this one cobalt with lacy detailing along the shoulders and chest.

Her most famous lace outfit, however, was her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown, composed of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt. Perhaps lace means “ladylike” in the royal family? Tell us: Do you love the Duchess in lace?
