The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their social debut as a married couple at the star studded ARK gala dinner. The newlyweds looked relaxed and posed as they arrived in a blue jaguar and posed for photographs. William wore a blue dinner jacket while Kate looked stunning in a floor length rose sequin-embellished gown with crystal and bead detailing by Jennie Packham with LK Bennett rose agata sandals and her hair worn down. The couple were among the first to arrive at Kensington Palace greeting guests. I have to say Kate looked absolutely beautiful she could easily pass for a supermodel.Her status as style icon is surely cemented now. The Duchess of Cambridge showed no signs of nerves as she chatted to guests. Celebrities including Liz Hurley, Jemima Khan and former miss world Rosanna Davison were in attendance. After a drinks reception guests were entertained by a team of mexican drivers who performed an acrobatic display. Guest then enjoyed a three course meal. Afterwards William gave a speech commending the work of ARK and hopes for the future 'I pledge to raise aspirations, broaden horizons and encourage young people to achieve'. He spoke of how lucky he feels to have a loving family and a secure home but others are not so fortunate which is why the foundation needs as much support as possible.
