Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the UK’s Creative Industries Reception at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, following a day of supporting Zara Phillips during her equestrian competition during the 2012 Olympics.
Prince William’s wife dazzled onlookers Monday as she met Prime Minister David Cameron and dozens of British artists on the fringe of the London Olympics.
The 30-year-old duchess tied her long hair back and wore a dove gray dress by Serbian designer Roksanda Ilincic.
The day started off atGreenwich Park for Zara Phillips’ equestrian event at the Olympics, where Catherine caught some rays with Will (and Gucci sunglasses) in tow. And then it was on to the evening. While the boys hit up the men’s gymnastic finals, Kate changed into her evening wear to attend (stag) a non-Olympics related event in London. Part of the “GREAT” promotion of all things Great Britain, around 800 guests interested in working or promoting the United Kingdom were present.
Have a look at Kate Middleton’s dress:
How did the duchess do for evening? First of all, we’re totally crushing on her hair, which was pulled back in a rare updo. Fun fact: the last time the duchess wore her hair back, it was at an Olympics gala back in May.
The dress is a recycle one also. Kate first wore the lavender Roksanda Ilincic frock back on her 2011 royal tour. Unusually she wore her hair swept back in an elegant chignon showing off her new circle earrings with the meaning of Olympic ring.
A pair of grey suede LK Bennett pumps to match her dress and a sparkling clutch completed her look. The pumps are no doubt her favorite.
