We share just a few photos to show the stunning red carpet entrance Kate and William made at tonight’s BAFTA celebration.
Another view of the Duchess.
Kate wowed the crowd in an elegant Alexander McQueen gown.
Here you see her greeting guests in the receiving line.
The gown featured Grecian-inspired lines with pleats from top to bottom; a blouson-style top, cinched-in waist accented by a rhinestone belt, cap sleeves, and a full, flowing skirt with a fluted hem.
A look at the belt; the second photo shows the snaps on the back. (It’s not the same as the belt worn with her second evening wedding gown, although it is similar.)
She accessorized with the Jimmy Choo Vamp Glitter Sandals in ‘champagne’.
The shoes have a 5.5″ heel, higher than usual even for Kate, they are $750 at Net-a-Porter. We would say these are “serious party shoes”. Thank you to WKW Facebook friends Michelle and Misty for finding the shoes!
Kate carried a matching clutch, we believe it is the Jimmy Choo Ubai, also in ‘champagne,’ $595 at Net-a-Porter or Jimmy Choo. Once again, our thanks to Michelle and Misty for their amazing sleuthing skills in locating the bag.
The Duchess’s bracelet is believed to have been part of a set given to her by Prince Charles as a wedding gift. Her earrings are on loan from HM, The Queen.
It was quintessential Kate, understated, elegant and timeless.
