Kate Middleton sent a really strong message across the pond to America: "This, ladies -- actually, Kim Kardashian -- is how you dress a baby bump." 

Doesn't she just glow?

She wore a custom Jenny Packham dress in a blush, palest-of-pink hues, with a matching coat and ornate hat -- that's a British thing -- to the 60th anniversary of the Queens' coronation at Westminster Abbey on June 4. She's eight months along (just like Kim) and looked classic and classy.

No leather leggings. No leather tops. No too-tight ensembles. No cheap attempts or ploys to conceal her growing belly. She was just utterly beautiful.

Middleton knows what Kimmy K. apparently does not: Even with a growing tummy, you can retain and maintain your signature style with class. Kate looks like Kate, and has from the moment she announced she was with child.

And she can still pull off heels. It's really not that hard. You just have to, you know, avoid leather and ankle straps at all costs.
