This evening the Duchess of Cambridge attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds black-tie dinner at the Victoria and Albert Museum in aid of Kate's patronage, The Art Room.
The Duchess stepped out in a bold floral gown from Erdem. She worn the designer's 'Alouette' printed silk-gazar gown (€3,395/US$$4,560).
The gown features a claret, cobalt-blue and cream floral print inspired by 1960's Japanese graphics. The silk-gazar dress has a fitted jewel-neck bodice and flares at the knee into a voluminous peplum skirt. Is is currently available at Net-a-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Boutique 1.
In the past week, we have seen Kate turn it up in the bling department and she continued that trend tonight.
She dipped into the Royal jewelry vault and wore a dazzling pair of the late Queen Mother’s sapphire and diamond fringe earrings on loan by the Queen. Thanks to My Small Obsessions for the ID.
We also saw the return of the art deco bracelet she’s been wearing since 2011 that is said to be a wedding gift from Prince Charles.
Rounding off Kate's ensemble were the Jimmy Choo 'Cosmic' pumps and Anya Hindmarch Bespoke Maud Clutch.
This is the third occasion the Duchess has attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala. In 2013 she wore the Jenny Packham Ink Blue Silk Tulle Gown and in 2011 she donned a red Beulah number.
