This evening, Kate turned heads as guest of honor at the 100 Women Hedge Funds Gala to benefit one of the charities close to her heart, Action on Addiction.
The Duchess of Cambridge did not have to travel far for the gala as it’s being held at the Kensington Palace State Apartments (She, Prince William and Prince George reside at Apartment 1A).
During tonight’s dinner, the Duchess will present Dame Amelia Fawcett with the 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ 2013 European Industry Leadership Award.
Action on Addiction is involved in tackling addiction through research, prevention, treatment, professional education and family support. It has centers in Dorset, London, Merseyside and Wiltshire.

She finished off her look with her diamond bracelet and matching earrings and a sleek blow-dry with minimal make-up.
