Kate attended the 2006 Boodles Boxing Ball wearing a striking blue BCBG dress. It was the first time we had seen Kate at a black tie event and the dress was a perfect choice, both youthful and elegant.
Sponsored by Boodles and held in the Royal Lancaster Hotel in aid of Sparks Sports Aiding Medical Research For Kids.
Kate accompanied Prince William to the Boodles Boxing Ball in 2008 wearing a beautiful £1,000 pink Issa gown. In my opinion this is one of Kate's best looks. The colour worked perfectly with her dark hair and her chandelier earrings added a touch of glamour.
Issa designer Daniella Helayel added a very similar dress to her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The Brazilian designer said she loves to recreate her best pieces.
Kate's many expressions while watching the match :)
Kate hosted a table at the Saatchi Gallery to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation. Prince William and The Middleton family were also there to support the foundation.
