The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Portrait Gala this evening at London's National Portrait Gallery in her role as Patron.
Before the dinner, Kate toured some of the exhibitions in the gallery.
The Duchess has been Patron of the National Portrait Gallery since 2012, and this was the second fundraising Gala she has attended in her role - the first was back in 2014.
The Duchess looked elegant for the black-tie event in a "new reveal" green lace gown by Temperley London.
You may recall we got a glimpse of the dress in April 2016 when Kate was snapped arriving at Buckingham Palace for the Queen's private 90th birthday dinner.
The bespoke green dress appears to be a fusion of the British designer's 'Ariel' Lace Maxi Dress and 'Amoret' gown which Kate owns in black. Alice Temperley has rendered the 'Ariel' silhouette with the lace fabric of the 'Amoret'.
Here's a closer look at the identical lace floral pattern of the two gowns.
The Duchess offset the dress with her Wilbur & Gussie 'Charlie' gold glitter clutch (£195), a long forgotten piece which she has only carried on a few occasions since we first saw it 2011.
The small envelope clutch has glitter exterior and features a jewel-encrusted brooch on the front flap.
Kate paired the clutch with shoes from the same vintage. On her feet were the Jimmy Choo 'Dart' glitter sandals.
The strappy platform heels have not been seen since their debut at the Malaysian State dinner in September 2012.
Kate finished off the look with a dazzling new pair of earrings by her go-to jeweler, Kiki McDonough. The Candy Pink Tourmaline and Green Amethyst Drop Earrings feature stunning pear drop green amethysts and pretty round pink tourmalines surrounded by delicate diamonds set in 18ct yellow gold. The earrings originally retailed for £8,900 but have now been reduced to £5,340.
