The Duchess of Cambridge has stepped out for a glittering gala tonight, carrying out an engagement for the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF) in her role as Patron.
Kate decided on a repeat and wore her Diane von Furstenberg 'Zarita' Black Lace Gown which she debuted for the Royal Variety Performance in November 2014.
The gown version has sold out, but the style remains available in the cocktail length at DVF ($139.20), Nordstrom Rack ($139.97), and Matches Fashion ($174),
Kate carried her black Prada satin clutch with stone embellishment.
The Duchess loaned Her Majesty's diamond orbital teardrop earrings.
She also donned a diamond quartrefoil bracelet we have not seen her wear before. The ornate piece once belonged to the Queen Mother and was likely handed down as part of a vast collection of jewelry given to Queen Elizabeth II after her mother’s death in 2002.
Kate pinned a red poppy brooch to her to chest in honour of Remembrance Day. It looks it may be The Poppy Collection ® Medium Brooch Gold Tone (£14.99).
The style also comes in silver and a larger size. You can buy genuine poppy brooches supporting the Royal British Legion from The Poppy Shop.
