KATE MIDDLETON SHINES IN GREEN AS SHE ATTENDS GLITTERING GALA AT THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY
Kate Middleton last night attended one of the most glittering events in her calendar so far this year – a gala dinner at the National Portrait Gallery.
The Duchess may have been surrounded by fashionistas such as Alexa Chung, but Kate more than held her own in a glamorous forest green floor length gown by Temperley London, one of her favourite designers.
Kate's glossy brunette locks were styled in bouncy flurry of curls, and she completed her gown with a pretty gold glitter clutch bag costing £195 by Wilbur & Gussie and Jimmy Choo gold heels.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore £8,900 green amethyst and pave diamond Candy earrings in 18ct yellow gold by Kiki McDonough, which complemented the colour of her dress.

My opinion- The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning in the green gown but she was overdressed.
