The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge were the guests of honour this evening at the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium Theatre in London.
This is the second time William and Kate have attended the show which is reserved for senior members of the Royal family. Their first time was in 2014.
Following a delayed arrival due to a security concern at the nearby Oxford Circus tube station, the pregnant Duchess stepped out onto the red carpet in a shimmering new Jenny Packham gown.
The dusty blue bespoke dress features a layer of illusion tulle covered in crystals and scores of tonal sequins arranged into dainty flowers.
Tonight we saw the return of the Jenny Packham 'Casa' clutch and Oscar de la Renta Platinum Lamé Cabrina Pumps. The US$690 heels are still available in limited sizes from Oscar de la Renta and Orchard Mile.
Kate topped off her dazzling look with diamond chandelier earrings on loan from Her Majesty.
Tonight's outfit was a slight repeat of her Paris gala look in March. The designer, dress colour, shoes, clutch, and earrings were all the same.
What did you think of this new Jenny Packham number?
