Kate Middleton Takes Her Love of Blue to a Gorgeous New Level (PHOTO)

I believe we've found the Duchess of Cambridge's signature color! Kate Middleton looked stunning in a blue dress at a charity event in London to draw attention to the importance of good foster care. Proving yet again her commitment to helping young people, the princess was the picture of perfect elegance.


The 33-year-old mom of two attended the event without Prince William — maybe he was at home watching George and Charlotte? — and made a grand entrance at the annual Fostering Excellence Awards event accompanied by host Holly Willoughby. We all know the important work she is doing in highlighting the achievements of social workers, foster carers, and children in foster care outweighs her appearance, but it never hurts to see how a young royal dresses for the occasion.

Yet again, Kate didn't disappoint. She wore a jewel-blue Saloni crinkle-effect dress with a belt, simple black clutch, and minimal gold earrings. Her hair and makeup were, of course, perfect — pretty and slightly formal, without being over the top:

Another fashion hit for Kate. She isn't one to take huge risks, nor should she given her status (she isn't a Hollywood actress, after all), but she always wears what works for her body type and skin tone.

We've seen Kate in almost this exact shade of cobalt blue before, which leads us to believe she is well aware of the fact that this hue works wonders on her — it brightens her complexion and brings out her eyes.

The charity's president Jim Bond was over the moon about the duchess's involvement with the charity and lauded her for "shining a light on fostering." In a forward written for the evening's program, Kate made it known that she feels just as fortunate to be able to help out in any way possible:

It is fantastic that we are gathered this evening to celebrate fostering and the truly transformational care that is a lifeline to so many. The people we will hear about tonight are truly extraordinary and show how good foster care changes children and young people's lives.

This just goes to show that there is truth in what we've been hearing from insiders all along: Kate doesn't simply look the part, she is 100 percent committed to learning about and helping young people to the best of her ability.
