Inspired by: Kate’s pink dress at the ARK gala

Kate looked stunning at the ARK gala last night and her ethereal rose coloured dress, designed by Jenny Packham, was amazing.

We knew that girls up and down the country would want to achieve the same sort of look at their proms, balls and parties over the next couple of weeks, so we have scouted out a few, let’s just say, more affordable options.
