06:33 GMT, 2 October 2012
She's famous for recycling outfits that she's already worn at previous high profile events and the Duchess of Cambridge kept up her thrifty reputation as she attended a friend's wedding at the weekend.
The 30-year-old arrived at the nuptials of childhood friend Thierry Kelaart in the same silver-grey Erdem dress she wore at the Trooping the Colour parade earlier this year.
While the Duchess wore the delicate, long-sleeved design with a statement hat by milliner Jane Corbett the first time round, she opted for a slightly-less showy pale blue hat on this occasion.

She was joined by her mother Carole Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton at the wedding.
The sisters' father Michael Middleton played an extra special role on Thierry's big day.

The Duchess laughed and chatted with friends as she made her way into the church on Saturday.
Her embellished dress received it's second outing less than six months after the Duchess wore as she proudly watched the Duke of Cambridge, who rode on horseback in his role as Colonel of the Irish Guards, during the Queen's official birthday celebrations.
Since her engagement the Duchess has opted to wear several of her outfits on more than one occasion, including a 49 Zara dress first seen the day after the Royal Wedding, and a brocade dress coat which made its debut in 2006.
Kate also recycled a number of staple wardrobe items over the course of the Olympics, namely a navy or white Team GB polo with a dark pair of jeans and a blue, purple and white Whistles dress
