Kate Loves: Gowns Part 1

Duchess Kate has worn some stunning gowns over the past decade. From her university days to red carpet events, Kate's timeless elegance has shone through in her evening gown choices. Let's look back over the past decade beginning with a black halter neck dress Kate wore during her time as a student in St Andrews University.

Kate attended the 2006 Boodles Boxing Ball wearing a striking blue BCBG dress. It was the first time we had seen Kate at a black tie event and the dress was a perfect choice, both youthful and elegant.

Kate accompanied Prince William to the Boodles Boxing Ball in 2008 wearing a beautiful £1,000 pink Issa gown. In my opinion this is one of Kate's best looks. The colour worked perfectly with her dark hair and her chandelier earrings added a touch of glamour.

Issa designer Daniella Helayel added a very similar dress to her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The Brazilian designer said she loves to recreate her best pieces.

Another sartorial triumph for Kate in 2009 in another Issa gown. This time Kate chose a gunmetal grey dress with a naval cut neckline. You can see similarities in the dresses thus far, Kate obviously favoured a certain style pre-engagement which worked very well for her.

Kate hosted a table at the Saatchi Gallery to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation. Prince William and The Middleton family were also there to support the foundation.
