Event: The Sun’s Military Awards
Kate’s velvet, strapless Alexander McQueen gown, in all it’s screen-siren glory, has to be one of our all-time favourites. Exhuding red Hollywood glamour, confident Kate swept up the red carpet in the scene-stealing gown, which reportedly came with an eye-watering £4,000 price tag. The perfect accessory? A delicate touch of sparkle in the form of a beautiful diamond and ruby collar-style necklace and matching bracelet, given to her at the Royal Wedding. Clarence House confirmed Kate’s sparkler was a gift, but would only reveal was ‘from a family friend who wishes to remain anonymous.’

Event: In Kind Direct dinner
It was her first solo engagement, so Kate made sure to pull a suitably stunning gown out of her closet to attend an In Kind Direct dinner hosted by Prince Charles at Clarence House.

The perfect elegant choice for such an occasion, it was the second time during the trip Kate had donned a dress by the Canadian-born, British designer.

Kate Middleton ARK GalaDress: Jenny Packham
Event: ARK Gala
One of Kate’s most stunning looks to date, the Duchess was positively dazzling in a nude Jenny Packham gown, embellished to stunning effect with all-over sequins, at an ARK gala dinner last year. While she may have opted for a designer dress, Kate, whose complexion was made glowing by the dress’s pretty shade, stayed true to her high street roots, opting for L.K. Bennett nude heels and a coordinating box clutch.

Royal WeddingDress: Alexander McQueen
Event: Royal Wedding
The most memorable dress of the year, and probably the decade, Kate kept her wedding gown a closely guarded secret pre-ceremony. But when she finally stepped out of the car, boy was it worth the wait. Reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding dress, the elegant gown featured a 1950s neckline and delicate lace sleeves. Thoroughly British, with all fabrics, save for the French Chantilly lace, sourced by UK companies. the four flowers used in the design of the lace, roses, thistles, daffodils and shamrock, were symbolic of the four nations of Great Britain.
