Kate Middleton Looks Jaw-Droppingly Perfect at First Royal Event (PHOTO)

Love It! 17

kate middletonNot that we ever thought she wouldn't, Kate Middleton stunned at her first royal event on Thursday. The Duchess of Cambridge accompanied Prince William to the inaugural Tusk Conservation Awards at the Royal Society in London, and she chose to step out in a pale gold sequined gown by Jenny Packham; sky-high strappy platform heels; and hair that, in the right light, appeared to be more blinding than her dress. She looked -- and it's not often that I use this word -- exquisite.

(Oh, and for those of you wondering, the answer is no. This is not what most women anyone looks like less than two months after giving birth. Kate was clearly constructed by Russian scientists hoping to play a cruel joke on womankind. Russian scientists, 1; womankind, 0.)

I thoroughly appreciate the fact that Kate decided to go bold and in yo' face for this event. Her style typically is more on the understated side, so when she opts for something with such wow factor, it really does ... wow.

Shiny works on our girl Kate. Sparkly, too. And hey, maybe she'll throw the world for a loop and become more fancy after becoming a mom instead of less.

And then women everywhere will be clamoring to get their hands on gold lame hospital gowns for when they give birth.

How does Kate Middleton look: Flawless or flawless?

Yes, she does look beautiful, in fact, it seems she always does! However, I do have to say that yes, some women do look that good eight weeks after having a baby. Not everyone gains an exorbitant amount of weight, and it is not unusual to be back in your pre-pregnancy clothes a few weeks, or even less, after birth

I really don't know why so many people, and women at that, insist on implying that woman who have given birth are destined to have "mom" bodies forever after. So not true!

Agree with you Taisie, I went back to my regular size 6 clothes 5 days after my first was born, 11 days after my second, 7 days after my third. I gained 22lbs with the first, 18lbs with the second, 19lbs with the third. a month after I has each child my body was completely back to normal and I don't have a personal chef, maid or trainer. I workout on my own (run 3-5 miles a day, yes kiddos in tow or while they napped) and do weights at home. lots of regular every day women go back to their pre-preggo body just like the Duchess did. You do not have to loose yourself when you have a child.

She looks beautiful. I was 5lbs lightee after giving birth with my 2nd and looked good 2mths later, it is possible to do! She obviously kept good care of herslef while pregnant and afterwards, mayne even did some stomach bonding to help shrink her stomach.

Plenty of women look wonderful weeks after giving birth.  plenty of them don't.  I bet Kate worked her ass off to look like that.  Let her own it.

7 kids later and doing it all in less then 9 years I still look and weight the same. So not all famous people are the ones who bounce back.

She looks great. Don't hate her for looking thin. After my first child I lost all the baby weight two weeks after giving birth it can happen its all about genes.
