The Duchess wore Diane von Furstenberg for this evening’s Royal Variety Performance.
The event is a glittering affair at the London Palladium.
More from the Daily Mail:
The Duchess of Cambridge looked the picture of health as she and Prince William arrived to watch the Royal Variety Performance for the first time tonight – stopping to shake hands with a rather more casually dressed One Direction.
Glowing in a stunning floor length Diane von Furstenberg lace gown, and her hair in a simple up-do, Kate – who is 16 weeks pregnant – seemed to be showing the tiniest hint of a baby bump as she and William arrived at the London Palladium.
William and Kate were greeted by Harry Styles and One Direction.
A look at Kate’s gown from the side.
It meets most criteria for an evening frock for the Duchess: it has a fitted top/bodice, it has lace, and it also has a full skirt. The dress is a poly/nylon blend, and the lining has a touch of spandex, allowing for a more forgiving fit. The gown is also offered on the DVF UK website, where it remains available in most sizes. (The floor-length gown is not available in black on the DVF US website.)
The full-length gown is also available in navy, we show it at Matches Fashion ($900).
The Zarita is one of the label’s core pieces, offered in a variety of colors and lengths; I counted 13 variations just at the DVF site. Below we show it in the short version in black at DVF ($348). It is also offered at Nordstrom where it is on sale, discounted to $278.
The short dress is on sale at Nordstrom in 3 other colors; grey, ivory and navy.
It is a popular dress, Princess Madeleine wore it in what looks like the navy color back in 2012, click here to see a photo of her in the dress. I can’t tell from the photo if it is the long or short version of the frock. Our thanks to Nica Cornell for letting us know about this.
