The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in a Grecian one-shouldered gown at a charity dinner last night.
The silver dress draped beautifully over the British royal and gathered neatly at the waist with a bow. She also wore a scarlet poppy to show her support for the UK World War I Remembrance Day.
The dress is believed to be a design from Alice Temperley and was perfect for entertaining 120 gusts in the Picture Gallery at St James’s Palace in London.
She accessorised simply with a diamond bangle, diamond drop earrings and her wedding and engagement bands.
She wore her glossy, brunette looks, with one small section pulled to show off her simple make-up.
Her husband the Duke of Cambridge looked equally impressive, by her side in a dinner jacket and bowtie.
The couple were holding a dinner for the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal, of which William is a patron.
The fund hopes to raise $19 million to turn the Arboretum, which honours all those who have sacrificed their lives for the UK, into a world-renowned centre for Remembrance.
Catherine smiled throughout the evening despite recently hearing her husband is to undertake a six-week posting to the Falkland Islands.
