Kate Middleton stepped out Thursday night in her first formal gown since her April 29 wedding day.
Kate Middleton fans let out a collective squeal when the newly-crowned Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with hubby Prince William Thursday night. The newlyweds attended the Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) Charity Gala and, of course, Middleton stole all the attention with her sparkly pink Jenny Packham dress.
Middleton’s Jenny Packham number is from the UK-based designer’s Spring 2011 Ready to Wear collection. The dress is available online at MyTheresa for a mere $3,315 – a far cry from the budget dresses Middleton has sported as of late.
Kate Middleton: Regal on race day
Middleton and Wills hit up Epsom Downs with Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Queen Elizabeth on Sunday to take in a race. Of course, Princess Kate looked gorgeous in her cream-colored Peacock dress from Reiss with nude L.K Bennett heels and jacket from Joseph.
Middleton’s Reiss dress is decidedly more affordable at $375 — too bad it’s sold out everywhere. You can get it at eBay for a cool $500, though!
Middleton and Michelle Obama: Style icons meet
Race day wasn’t Middleton’s first time in Reiss, though. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at Buckingham Palace a couple of weeks back — and Middleton wore a Reiss cap-sleeve Reiss bandage dress for that meeting while the FLOTUS wore a Easter-colored Barbara Tfank A-line dress.
That Reiss dress is sold out too — again, find it on eBay!
