Kate Is the Reigning Queen of the Gown Rewear (and Our Personal 'I Really Love My ...' Hero)

She’s already got a tiara and a title, but we’re giving The Duchess of Cambridge another crown and royal designation: The Queen of “I Really Love My.” Yes, she must have multiple closets teeming with gowns and accessories, but Kate has proven she loves to get a lot of wear out of her wardrobe. This week, however, she may have set her own personal rewear record, pulling out a gorgeous gown from her closet for the third time — just days after wearing another of our favorite gowns for the second time on the red carpet.

She followed up her ivory Roland Mouret rewear with a third viewing of a familiar lace Temperley London dress to the Natural History Museum Alive screening in London Wednesday. From her glossy blowout to her polished makeup, you might think you were looking at three of the same photos, save for the subtle tweaks in her choice of accessories.

At yesterday’s screening, she played up the look with jewelry, adding a diamond necklace, drop earrings and a bracelet. In Nov. 2012, Kate added a pop of color to the design with a bright-red clutch for a dinner at her alma mater, the University of St Andrews. And when she first debuted the gown almost two years ago at the War Horse U.K. premiere, she added a black velvet clutch to match the waistband. Like we said, subtle tweaks.

When did the Duchess wear the dress best? What do you think of her red carpet repeat policy? Share your thoughts below.

Dear PEOPLE.com:

REAL PEOPLE WEAR OUTFITS MORE THAN ONCE.

Love this woman.

It’s too pretty of a dress to not wear more then once. And why is a big deal to wear it more then once? I like her, she does what she wants and doesn’t let others tell her what is right or wrong to do.

I love that she rewears. Keep in mind though that here, a celebrity will wear BORROWED clothes to events, so they can’t really rewear them since they have to give them back. I love that she has a dress that is tailor fit perfectly to her, and wears it whenever she feels that one calling her back. Kudos! I do get though that for photographed events, one would tend to want to wear something new, but it’s great that she doesn’t care. She looks great and that’s what counts-as it should be.

Most American celebrities wear borrowed clothes from designers for publicity or red carpet events. I think it shows true wealth when KM is able to recycle her gowns…because she actually owns them!

looks great on

I have worn the same winter coat for 21 days straight. ;-)

My thing is this. She has a hairdresser. Why cant she at least change her hairstyle with each wear of the dress?!?

With that said, its her life so whatever!

She is so classy and down to earth – she is just a very lovely person.

SHE CAN WEAR THE SAME CLOTHES OVER AND OVER BECAUSE SHE KNOWS HOW TO CARRY HERSELF AND WEARS CLASSICS. PAY ATTENTION KIM K – OH WAIT YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO SPELL CLASSIC???
