Kate Middleton Kills It in Showstopping Red Gown

Lady -- er, Duchess -- in red. Kate Middleton stunned in a gorgeous red gown on Monday evening at a reception at the official Government House in Victoria. The elegant event was hosted by the province of British Columbia in the fancy Rockland neighborhood of Victoria. Kate's gorgeous off-the-shoulder dress was as eye catching as it gets, and she managed to sweetly pay homage to Queen Elizabeth with one of her accessories.


Kate's gown was by British designer Preen and she styled the $1,332 satin dress with a sleek updo, glitzy drop earrings, and the queen's diamond Maple Leaf brooch. A fitting ode to both her grandmother-in-law, as well as Canada.

Gorgeous. And let's get a closer look at that shiny hair, shall we?

Clearly, the duchess travels with her hair stylist for a reason. Her tresses are forever flawless. 

More from CafeMom:

Kate and William are now on day three of their Canada tour, and from the sound of things, the trip is going well. (Save for Prince George snubbing Justin Trudeau, of course.) The royal family and their entourage are staying in a 13-bedroom mansion, and on Tuesday they've got another full day of events. The duke and duchess will fly to the city of Kelowna, as well as visit the University of British Columbia; take part in the Taste of British Columbia festival; and travel to Whitehorse in the Yukon, where Canadian Rangers will greet them. No doubt they're having fun. 

But for the record, this dress is going to be hard to top. Good luck, Kate.
