I love Kate's dress and shoes.  She looks beautiful.  William looks handsome as well.  He looks more like his mother every day.

If I had a occasion to wear a formal dress, I'd love to have it in the silver color.  The details are lovely and the dress isn't overly expensive.

 

It is sold in a short version too....and on sale.

Kate looks gorgeous in this dress (and I don't usually like red.)
