Duchess of Cambridge Arrives for a Reception at the Imperial War Museum with Grey Dress

Hi Ladies,

I just wanted to add some other pictures of the Duchess and I must say that this grey dress is very chic. What I like about this grey dress is that it is lady like and you can wear it with a belt like Kate did, or not. It is very versatile and it seems very easy to wear. I also like te way the Duchess have her hair as well. The earring is a perfect match with the belt, which also have some gold accents just like the earring she is wearing.  and if you look really close the earrings also match the design of the belt as well very chic I must say…

              

So as you can see this look is very elegant, and Kate have really made grey a very stylish color. let me know what you think?

God Bless
