It looks like Kate Middleton has finally said goodbye to the nude court shoe.

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge (35) might be one of the most stylish women in the world, but her personal style is predictable. But the mother-of-two is showing off her high fashion makeover in recent weeks bychopping six inches off hair and - gasp! - not wearing wedges to two events in a row.

On Thursday night, Kate was the guest of honour at London's Natural History Museum where she marked the opening of Hintze Hall in a grey dress by Preen and a pair of the suede triple strap wavy sandal, costing nearly €900.

The event also provided rare footage of the future queen actually speaking. In her speech, Kate revealed her children Prince George (three) and Princess Charlotte (two) love visiting the museum "and not just for the dinosaurs" as she unveiled the 25.2 metre-long whale skeleton, which is suspended from the ceiling and appears to be diving above the newly reopened hall.

"I am experiencing the joy all over again with my own children, who adore coming here, and it is not just to see the T-Rex mind you," she said.

Sir David Attenborough told the audience he first walked into the Natural History Museum more than 80 years ago, when he was just 10.
