On our daily scan of the Daily Mail, we noticed a story about Kate Middleton’s dress code for her first Christmas Day at Sandringham House. The Duchess of Cambridge may be required to change up to five times in less than 24 hours—for breakfast, church, lunch, cocktails, and dinner.

We’ve just posted our top picks for festive holiday dresses; here’s what we’d choose for Catherine if she hired us as her personal shopper. Kate, if you’re reading this, we’re available.
