Kate Middleton Looks Like a Fairytale Princess in This Sparkly Gown

Kate Middleton is a modern-day royal, but she looked like a character straight out of a Disney movie as she attended an evening reception for members of the Diplomatic Corps at Buckingham Palace tonight.

The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in a fitted pale blue Jenny Packham gown with sheer draped sleeves and crystal embellishment throughout.

She wore her brunette locks in an updo, putting all of the attention on the tiara placed atop her head. The stunning headpiece  — known as the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara — featured diamonds and pearls throughout. Middleton accessorized with matching pearl earrings that shimmered in her ears.
