Royal Tour Day 3, Norway: Kate dazzles in floaty Alexander McQueen gown for Black Tie Dinner in Oslo
This evening the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a black-tie dinner in their honour hosted by The King and Queen of Norway at the Royal Palace, Oslo.
Kate looked every inch the princess in a floor-length gown by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen.
The blush pink number is a custom piece based on this silhouette from the British fashion house. Crafted in Italy from light-as-air silk, this floaty style comes with a romantic cape-like tulle layer and falls to an elegant floor length.
Kate had the neckline embellished with a crystal diamante embroidery.
The Duchess carried a new Jimmy Choo clutch in a tonal hue. The design is identical to the one she used for the Embassy dinner in Stockholm a couple of nights ago. It is the 'Celeste' style in Ballet Pink suede. It is defined by an embellished frame and faceted clasp. Ut retails for US$1,495.
On her feet she wore her Cinderella-inspired Oscar de la Renta Platinum Lamé Cabrina Pumps.
Kate complemented her dazzling look with the Queen's diamond orbital teardrop earrings and the 'Wedding Gift Bracelet' also on loan from Her Majesty. As the name implies the bracelet was a wedding gift to HM from Prince Philip. The hefty piece is set with diamonds from a tiara once belonging to his mother, Princess Andrew of Greece. The Duchess has worn both pieces of jewellery on previous occasions.
