Kate Middleton Wore Her Highest Heels Ever at the Portrait Gala in London

Kate Middleton took her shoe game to new heights on Tuesday night.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Portrait Gala at London’s National Portrait Gallery wearing a forest-green Temperly London lace gown and completed the look with lots of gold accessories. According to U.K.’s Daily Mail, her strappy gold-and-champagne-hued sandals are by Jimmy Choo. She carried a Wilbur & Gussie clutch and topped off the look with Kiki McDonough earrings.

These sandals are certainly one of the highest pairs Middleton has worn since becoming duchess, a role that requires a more demure wardrobe and modest heel height. Middleton’s sandals look to have about a four-inch heel, and while she does often wear spindly pumps by Gianvito Rossi, the gold flashiness of this pair is something not often seen on Middleton. She only recently started wearing a sparkly pair of pavé pumps by Oscar de la Renta.
