Kate was spotted walking to a hair appointment in late 2012 in what some believe was this dress, but the ID is not a positive one. Speculation is the dress was either this black Zara shift, or an Alexander McQueen piece. Given the relaxed tone of the outing, and Kate's sartorial history, it seems far, far more likely the Duchess was wearing Zara and not McQueen. Simple dress featuring pleated sleeves. Retail: $80.
