Last night Kate attended The Sun’s Military Awards, along with Princes William and Harry. The event, which is sometimes known as the “Night of Heroes” or “The Millies”, was held at London’s Imperial War Museum.
It was a star-studded event with David Beckham, Jimmy Carr, Frank Lampard, Christine Bleakley, The cast of TOWIE and Gordon Ramsey also in attendance.
Kate looked absolutely stunning in a floor length velvet strapless dress designed by Alexander McQueen:
Kate’s dress appears to be an adaption of this McQueen dress, customised with a full velvet skirt and a ruffled bustier:
Kate’s jewellery and accessories:
Kate also wore an amazing silver necklace with pink/red stones and a matching bracelet. Royal Photographer @RegalEyes on Twitter informs us they could be rubies. Clarence House confirmed Kate’s jewellery formed part of her personal collection, given to her as a wedding gift by a friend.
My friend Anna, who is an expert in royal jewellery and runs “My Small Obsessions” on Facebook, informs us that Kate *may* be wearing a “convertible tiara”. I’d never heard of this before but here’s a link shared by Anna, which shows Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary wearing a tiara that can be worn as a necklace.
*Update:* Anna has since declared she’s unsure if it is a convertible tiara – what do you think?
As noted by lots of people, last night Kate also wore the same mystery earrings from her apparence at Canada Day’s evening celebrations (where she wore the purple Issa dress) and again, which she wore to Zara Phillips’ wedding.
It also appears that Kate is wearing a brand new pair of shoes. From the photographs, it’s quite hard to identify them for certain at the moment, though on the WhatKateWore Facebook page, it’s suggested they could be either Jimmy Choos or Prada.
Kate’s handbag is a black clutch with a large velvet bow. At first, I thought it was from Emmy Shoes, but it has been confirmed by the company that it’s not from their company. However, What Kate Wore now reveals the bag is from a company called Pretty Ballerinas.
