As the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine spends plenty of time in buttoned-up looks with gorgeous silhouettes and an understated elegance.

But every once in a while she busts out a trendy outfit that we like to think of as her Kate Middleton side shining through.

At a party in honour of the Queen's birthday at the British ambassador's residence during the Royal Family's trip to Berlin, Kate wore a stunning Alexander McQueen floor-grazing gown that showed off her shoulders and her height beautifully.

And yes, the $1,905 frock is already sold out.

Kate paired the dress with dainty strappy sandals from Prada (yep, they're sold out too), and as site What Kate Wore points out, even matched her earrings to the dress with super fun drop options from Simone Rocha (you guessed it — they're also sold out).

There's something about this dress that just makes us feel like shaking our shoulders, and it seems like Kate is sharing that sass.

The off-the-shoulder look has been going strong in fashion circles since 2016, and the duchess has embraced the trend before, like in this envy-inspiring Barbara Casasola gown she chose for an awards ceremony last July.

So while we know she'll return to the pretty and demure dresses of her daytime duties for the rest of the royal tour, we can't help but wait in anticipation for the duchess' next chance to let her fashion-forward side shine.
