The 32 year old last night wowed in the floor length ink blue gown at a black tie gala at the National Portrait Gallery after having first worn it in October at a Kensington Palace dinner in aid of people with addictions.
Part of one of the Duchess's favourite designers, Jenny Packham's Autumn/Winter collection, the dress features a low, sweeping, heart shaped neckline and chiffon off the shoulder sleeves.
Arriving at the National Portrait Gallery for the Portrait Gala 2014, Kate looked absolutely stunning in a midnight blue chiffon gown accessorised with a jaw dropping diamond necklace on loan from the Queen no less.
Kate dress is by Jenny Packham. The British designer started her eponymous label in 1988, and is best known for her bridal gowns. Kate dress is in fact from Jenny Packham 2014 bridal collection (see the image on the right), and has been specially made for her in this dreamy midnight blue.

However the Duchess has demonstrated the versatility of the gown when she wore it to more subtle effect just three months ago with minimal accessories.
Attending the dinner for one of her charities Action for Addiction days after Prince George's christening she left her dcolletage bare and wore just a single bracelet and simple diamond earrings.
She wore her hair down, with heavy eyeliner, blusher and nude lips to complete the elegant look.
The 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) philanthropic initiatives dinner raised money for the charity Action on Addiction, of which she is patron.
The Duchess has been slowly easing back into her royal duties, in particular supporting her personal charities, since the birth of Prince George last summer and will soon embark on an official visit to Australia with Prince William.
