A Designer Ball Dress for the Duchess!
In attendance at the 10th (Absolute Return for Kids) Ark Gala, were William and Kate, at what was their first official engagement together. While William looked dapper in his black tie dinner jacket, all eyes were really on his wife.
Dressed in a blush sequinned Jenny Packham ball gown with ruffled shoulder detailing, the Duchess shone. Accesorizing her ball dress with matching clutch and LK Bennett shoes (we loved the cute bows on the ankle!), Kate’s entire ensemble was floorless.
What we were most excited about here at GMD was that Gala marked the first occasion since wedding her prince, that Kate has coveted a designer outfit/dress! (A £3,500 one at that!) Not that normally we don’t admire Kate staying true to her love of the high-street. Wonder if Kate paid for it? Or did she borrow the designer dress? It’s not like she can wear it again; think the press might notice!
Which is why we think Kate would make a model Girl Meets Dress ambassador for designer dress hire. She could wear designer and then simply return it. A much cheaper option for the Duchess. And given her eye for a bargain, that resides in Kate’s everlasting love for the offerings of the high-street, we dare say she’d think it worthwhile to be saving a penny or two. We know we’re biased, but is anyone with us on this?
Here are some dresses from our ball gown hire and prom dress hire collections to which we think the Duchess would be rather partial!
