Kate Middleton attended her very first solo engagement last night, and she looked GREAT.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a floor-length gown in a lovely shade of pale blue-gray (green-gray? something-gray?) with an embellished strap situation. We’re used to seeing the royal in sleeves, so this is a nice departure (though, man, do we love sleeves). Dare we say Catherine is pulling a Michelle?!
Either way, it looks like those princess lessons are doing the trick! Kate chatted with guests at Clarence House in support of In Kind Direct, a charity which helps hook up UK charities with surplus goods. We’ve studied the photos extensively, and have surmised that Kate looks like a sparkling conversationalist. We also just really want to be her friend. And borrow her clothes.
UPDATE: The dress is vintage Amanda Wakeley.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
