Kate's a royal recycler as she steps out in same gown twice

FASHION queen Kate Middleton proved she's still a fan of recycling after donning an Alice Temperley gown for the second time during an event in St Andrew's.

The Duchess of Cambridge (30) looked stunning after stepping out last night to attend a fundraiser at the old university where she first met her husband Prince William.

But what really set tongues wagging was her sartorial choice for the evening -- a black and nude lace dress which she first wore last January to the premiere of Steven Spielberg's War Horse.

The elegant brunette did change her accessories, opting to team the dress with a red clutch bag, instead of the black one she used when she debuted the gown.

Clearly mindful of not looking too much of a spend-thrift, Kate has been winning lots of kudos among members of the public for her decision to wear some dresses twice.
