Kate Shines in Silver at St. James’s Palace Dinner

Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a dinner for 120 guests at St. James’s Palace. The event was to raise money for the National Memorial Arboretum, of which the Duke is patron.

The goal is to raise £12 million to turn the Arboretum, near Lichfield, Staffordshire, which honours all those who have sacrificed their lives for their country, into a world-renowned centre for Remembrance.
The organization was set up to provide necessary facilities for widows, families,comrades, and the public.
Kate looked glam in a silver, floor-length, one shoulder grecian gown by Jenny Packham. The loose-fitting chiffon satin gown gently gathered and tied at the waist.

I wasn’t able to find a picture of the gown in Jenny Packham’s current line. It could either be a custom piece or vintage. Above is a similar dress from Jenny Packham. It’s the ‘Red Flame One Shoulder Dress’ $2,130.

She coupled her beautiful dress with her Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ sandals in champagne glitter $750, her still unidentified diamond bracelet and a bright red poppy as a symbol of remembrance.

Kate’s hair was styled in a fresh new way. It was parted slightly off-center and pulled back on one side to expose an over sized diamond drop earring and left loose on the other.

Update 11/11/2011

Jenny Packham has confirmed via her Facebook page that Kate’s gown is a custom piece.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked amazing in the silver bespoke gown last night.”
