Kate Middleton Just Wore the Holiday Dress of Our Dreams

The perfect combination of sparkly and sheer.

Kate Middleton and her royal wardrobe are getting into the holiday spirit.  

Over the weekend, the Princess of Wales made a festive appearance in a sparkly red dress for her upcoming second annual Christmas concert special, Royal Carols: Together at Christmas, on Instagram. Wearing the holiday dress of our dreams, Kate paired the sequined midi-length gown with sheer sleeves and floral embellishments with matching red pumps and her signature glossy blowout. 

Soft glam (pink lipstick, rosy cheeks) and her sapphire engagement ring, as well as a coordinating pair of earrings completed her cheerful look.  

"Join us this Christmas Eve for a very special service at Westminster Abbey, full of festive carols and beautiful performances, as we celebrate what makes this the most wonderful time of year," Kate said in a promo clip for the special, which will air on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. on ITV1.
