Kate met with representatives from the five museums in the running for the award.
A number of artists attended the dinner, including Grayson Perry, Cornelia Parker and Antony Gormley.
The dinner took place in the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall, where the famous “Dippy” dinosaur skeleton is located. Here’s a look at staff setting up the tables ahead of the event:
A new designer for Kate this evening! She chose an off-shoulder dress from Brazilian born designer Barbara Casasola.
It’s the Tribal Dress from the company’s SS16 collection, according to Barbara Casasola’s Instagram account.
Net-A-Porter sold the dress for $1,105 (approximately £855 at today’s exchange rate) before selling out this evening. Here’s how they described the piece:
Part of the designer’s minimalist Spring ’16 runway collection, Barbara Casasola’s midi dress is cut from figure-sculpting stretch-jersey and paneled with sheer mesh inserts for a sporty feel. This off-the-shoulder piece flares out from the thigh to create a flattering, feminine silhouette.
The shoes feature two crisscross straps at the front and a slim wraparound ankle strap. They’re made from smooth nubuck leather in a lovely peachy pink colour.
