Kate Middleton Channels Classic Princess Di Photo

comments

When we saw this lovely photo of Kate Middleton at the Assyakirin Mosque in Malaysia, we were impressed by her chic, understated ensemble — she was respectful without being frumpy, and that can be tough. But suddenly, at second glance, we found ourselves in a 1996 flashback, remembering this very similar photo of Diana.

The late princess wore a similar headscarf in Pakistan and Egypt back in the day, but that's not what's so similar. The overall styling is, despite a few minor, modern updates, very familiar. The buttons, the monochrome, the flowy cut, and even the color is just a few shades off.

HuffPost's got all the deets, plus a slideshow of all Diana's best looks. As obsessed as we are with Kate, we'll never forget the original. (The Huffington Post)
