We're dying to know what Kate's wedding dress will look like, but the ensembles she's worn as a wedding guest might provide some clues about what she'll wear to her own.

Kate's most recent ensemble as a wedding guest caused quite a scandale in the British press. In January, she sported a black velvet Libelula coat over a sheer top to the nuptials of Louise Stourton and Harry Aubrey-Fletcher. While the old guard might think black is an inappropriate color to wear to a wedding, it's actually considered acceptable—and quite stylish—nowadays. And we love the idea of wearing a coat over a sexy dress—we could certainly picture Kate in a long coat with a train worn over a more revealing gown.
