Kate, who was attending a royal event at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night (3 December), looked breathtaking in a autumn pleated high-neck crepe midi dress from one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead, as she mingled at a reception held to celebrate 70 years of the NATO alliance, which was hosted by the Queen.

The beautiful dress also features a nipped in waist that looks flattering on the body and glamours dolman sleeves that are reminiscent of a 1930s style Wallis Simpson look. But of course, Emilia Wickstead’s pieces come with a hefty price tag and this dress is no different.
