Lady in red! Kate Middleton and Prince William hosted a royal reception on behalf of Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace, and despite all of the royal drama surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Kate looked radiant, wearing head-to-toe red in what’s possibly our favorite look yet.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked dazzling in the $600 vintage-inspired Aurora Gown by Needle & Thread. She paired her sparkly lace midi dress with red matching pumps, a red box clutch by Jenny Packham, and her signature bouncy blowout for a look that was equal parts elegant and on-trend. In fact, she may even be taking a page out of Meghan Markle’s style book with her all-red outfit—Meghan has been spotted wearing multiple monochromatic ensembles as of late.

Kate looked so stunning hosting the royal reception, we can’t help but find ourselves needing an embellished red dress in our wardrobes now too (Valentine’s Day is just around the corner). Like most of the pieces Kate wears, her exact dress style is already sold out. But because we’re so in love with it, we found eight gorgeous dupes that start at just $20.

So whether you’re attending a winter wedding, going to a fancy dinner party with friends, or have a hot date scheduled for V-Day, these dresses are sure to give you that royal sparkle (at real people prices) wherever you go.
