Happy Birthday Kate!

Lucky Kate Middleton has married a Prince and become a style icon in the same year and last night, on the eve of her 30th birthday, she continued to impress us by wearing a gorgeous Alice Temperley floor length gown!…

Accessorised with her engagement ring, a silver bracelet and black velvet clutch bag, her style was elegant and feminine with a touch of glamour!

There are so many stunning outfits Kate has worn over the last 12 months and here are a few of our favourites!…

A S/S 2012 Erdem Dress in Canada

From cream pleats, to black or navy floral lace, pencil to tiered skirts and fitted waists Kate’s style is modern, sophisticated and feminine.

We love Kate’s style and you can find many of her favourite design features on the jones + jones website from cream pleats here and here, gorgeous black floral lace here and here and of course we love nipped-in waists at jones + jones!

We hope Kate has a very Happy Birthday and we can’t wait to see more of her gorgeous outfits this year!

With love, jones + jones x
