The past 24 hours may have been Kate Middleton's busiest to date. The mother of two attended the world premiere of the newest James Bond movie last night, paid a visit to Chance UK at Islington Town Hall this morning, and has just ascended the steps at the Victoria and Albert museum for a gala. Tonight's dinner is being hosted by 100 Women in Hedge Funds, which benefits the Art Room, an organization Kate has been a patron of since 2012.
After pulling her hair back into a failsafe power pony earlier today, the princess celebrated the night with a more voluminous style. The Duchess of Cambridge was truly hard to miss, wearing an eye-catching sleeveless floral gown by London-based brand Erdem. According to Tesouras and Tiaras, the print was inspired by 1960s Japanese graphics. Princess style doesn't always come cheap, as the full-skirted gown is currently on sale for $4,560.
