It’s her first gala since the wedding. Has it been 6 weeks?

Prince William and Catherine showed up the ARK charity gala dinner tonight in London and she decided to bring some excitement to the occasion with pink and sequins and surprise, especially since she’s been so... subdued in her style choices. Not that this is wild by any stretch, but at least it has some zaza, you know what I mean? ZA! Duana said during the liveblog that this was a difficult colour, that it could be a no-colour. But not on her. She’s gorgeous.

Will and Kate are there in support of The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. It’s apparently 10,000 pounds a seat to get in. The Prince will be addressing the room.

As for Kate’s dress – it’s Jenny Packham, normally $6,000 but hey, right now it’s on sale! Click here. (Thanks Marcail!) Her shoes though, her shoes are typical Kate – high street, LK Bennett.
