Why Kate Middleton’s Stunning Red Dress Is Significant

Kate Middleton can do no wrong in the dress department. Further proof: While attending a reception in Canada this week, the Duchess of Cambridge stunned in a red gown by Preen that featured an asymmetrical neckline and full skirt. Sure, we’re easily smitten by most items donned by the Duchess, but we’re particularly struck by this look for good reason: Just after a certain presidential candidate received major Twitter props for a red power suit, the royal’s equally applaudable iteration proves how the power color is not only bold but can be incredibly classy when styled minimally. Below, four fresh red frocks to channel this head-turning look IRL, because we all need a power moment.
