Royal Outfit of the Day: June 23

It seems the moment many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived.

I know this Jenny Packham gown has been on many a wish list for a repeat; we haven't seen it since its debut in 2011. It's not among my personal favorites (I don't love the shoulder/neck detail, kinda?), so I'll stand here to the side and hand out paper bags for those of you that need to breathe.

But you know that my ambivalence does not extend to either #TeamUpdo or #TeamMoreDiamonds, and the styling this time has been given a major upgrade. The Duchess wore diamond chandelier earrings on loan from the Queen (worn several times before), along with Queen Mary's Diamond Bar Choker Bracelet (first worn at last year's Chinese state banquet), which is also on loan from the Queen after passing through Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. (More on that piece at the Vault.) Pile it on, please.

Psst: Tiara post will be tomorrow.
