Looks like Duchess Kate is taking her style cues from the late Jackie Kennedy. The 35-year-old Duchess of Cambridge made a mod-nod to America’s former first lady at the Victoria & Albert Exhibition Road Quarter in London on Thursday, June 29.

Middleton donned a $2,300 houndstooth Gucci number with short-sleeves, red piping and gold buttons to the opening of the new exhibition space. The quirky, yet prim shift dress was figure-framing and demure. Kennedy famously wore houndstooth for many public appearances, making the knit print a wardrobe staple for sophisticated ladies worldwide.

While her dress and accessories were mod, Duchess Kate kept her beauty look classic with her chestnut highlighted mane swept up in a wavy half-up hairstyle. Middleton was not without her signature peachy flush and glossy lips.

Of course, Duchess Kate has worn graphic prints before. In March 2016, Middleton attended a XL Mentoring charity event in an Eponine Label red and white houndstooth print A-line skirt and box cut jacket, reminiscent of yet another style staple of Kennedy.

Back in September 2015, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a Ralph Lauren Black Label houndstooth dress to visit to a children’s mental health center in London, which she belted and paired with black Stuart Weitzman pumps.
