Kate Middleton is rolling with the fashion set!

Kate, who was clad in a black and white floral dress from Erdem, looked lovely as she cradled her baby bump and mingled with Anna Wintour and Stella McCartney. The trio of women appeared to be laughing and smiling and enjoying the event. Kate was also spotted walking through the exhibit with Sophie, who looked sleek in a black and red dress from Burberry. 

Supermodel Naomi Campbell, Caroline Rush, handbag designer Anya Hindmarch, fashion activist and Colin Firth’s wife, Livia Firth, and British model Adwoa Aboah, were also in attendance at the event.

The exhibit featured custom designed sustainable outfits from designers and artisans from all 52 countries of the Commonwealth. According to Kensington Palace, the designs will be moved to other locations outside of Buckingham Palace so that the the public can enjoy them. 

It’s been a busy week for Kate! 

On Sunday, she attended the BAFTA Awards with Prince William. The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning in an evergreen colored gown, with a black empire waistband. But while Kate’s look was gorgeous — she caught some flack for wearing a colored gown instead of a black gown in support of the Time’s Up movement. 

The royals don’t typically comment on political issues and Kate didn’t share a statement on why she chose the look. But let’s be real — she looked lovely and the airy dress was probably much more comfortably than a form-fitting frock at 6 months pregnant. Kate is expected to have her third child in April.
