Leicester Square was transformed into Middle Earth, complete with a green carpet, for the premiere of The Hobbit and stars including Cate Blanchett, Sir Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman and James Nesbitt were joined by Prince William for the occasion.

Preparing as much as possible for the cold, Cate Blanchett went for a long-sleeved but backless Givenchy by Riccard Tisci number teamed with a white box clutch and Givenchy Spring Summer 2013 heels.
Prince William and Cate’s fellow cast members, meanwhile, were able to go for a slightly warmer approach in suits and tuxedos. Dapper as ever, Prince William was all smiles but clearly missing his red carpet companion, Kate Middleton, who is still recuperating after her bout of morning sickness last week.
