Kate Middleton has been playing her style cards right since the Royal Wedding, mixing hot high street pieces with designer labels and last night’s sparkling ensemble for the 10th annual Absolute Return for Kids Gala Dinner was a truly stunning example. Wearing a heavily-embellished blush-hued gown by designer Jenny Packham, Princess Catherine accessorised with LK Bennett bow-tie shoes and a simple satin box clutch.
Looking dapper in a tailored tux, Prince William led his new wife down the red carpet to face a crowd of photographers. With big smiles the happy couple were picture perfect for their first official engagement since the Royal Wedding.
There to represent the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, the prince’s fund-raising organisation, Prince William addressed the event’s audience to express his and Kate’s philanthropic hopes for the future.
Kate certainly is becoming the people's princess, and a style icon.
