Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attends a gala dinner in support of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ nook appeal at Houghton Hall in King’s Lynn, United Kingdom.
She’s worn this gown before, but we felt like highlighting it just because it’s so nice to see her in some sparkle. Of course, it’s a sparkle with virtually no color to it because Miss Duchess can’t seem to bear both at the same time, but we’ll take it. It’s not fashion-forward or dazzling in a high-impact way. It’s not the freshest, most youthful design in the world either. But she looks lovely and she doesn’t, for once, look like she’s trying too hard to be a good and proper little Duchess.
Maybe it’s because we’re so damn impressed with her one-handed clutch-and-wineglass grip. It’s a useful skill for the party-going gal.
