The Duchess made a very sparkly appearance Thursday evening in London, when she stepped out with Prince William for the Inaugural Tusk Awards in a pale-gold sequin Jenny Packham gown with a crystal motif, unlike anything we’ve ever seen her in.

It was Kate’s first big night out since the birth of baby George and she certainly made it a memorable one. For starters, she chose to honor the occasion by wearing a special diamond bracelet that is said to have been a wedding gift from her father-in-law, Prince Charles.

She also accessorized the jaw-droppingly gorgeous gown with her signature picture-perfect blowout and celeb-favorite Jimmy Choo “Vamp” platform sandals. (Olivia Wilde owns a pair of them, too!)

Also of note: She selected a gown with a slinky, slim-fitting silhouette. (We’d do the same if we looked so good so soon after having a baby!)

(Sidenote: We’re hoping that Jenny Packham is sitting back with a glass of wine right about now. After all, she just put on a killer show at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, and now this!)

Do you love Duchess Catherine’s gown as much as we do? –Annie Daly
