The Duchess looked absolutely divine, showing off her bare shoulders and arms for the first time — and we think she looks phenomenal! Do you agree?

Not only does Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge have a stellar sense of style, but she also manages to look appropriate and chic, confining to what’s expected of her attire in her fairly new role as the Duchess — and that means she’s usually all covered up, right down to her nude stockings! However for London’s annual military awards, Kate showed off elegant, nighttime glamour in a strapless velvet Alexander McQueen gown. While she accessorized with jewels she received from her wedding, the Duchess looked divine — I love how she totally shocked us in something unexpected!

Kate has an amazing ability to mix her favorite, attainable labels with her high-fashion attire, and she seems so relatable — it’s no surprise that so many people go wild for her style! Personally, I thought she exuded elegance and glamour in her gown last night — do you agree?

She’s always got the most perfect hair, that genuine smile, and those naturally rosy cheeks. She is absolutely beautiful, and this dress fits her like a glove. I typically don’t like black dresses because they tend to wear the girl, but SHE is wearing the dress!
And come on, William always looks so darn dapper. :)

Beautiful, just wish she had not choose to go with velvet clutch. Black silk would have compliment the soft texture of the dress in a subtle shine.
